What People Say About Dr. Joseph Bannon, MD

Mother had surgical consult. He wanted to talk to her other doctors before deciding whether or not to proceed w/ surgery. Said “right after Easter I’ll be back in touch.” Waited a month after Easter & called to see what’s up. No answers. Called 3 TIMES since & get told someone will call back, including supposedly his “right hand (wo)man” declaring she PERSONALLY would call back w/ information. We STILL haven’t heard from ANYONE. Shame on him leaving 83 yr old ill woman wondering what happened.

Great reputation but rushed bedside manner and less than adequate follow up with patients.

Dr. Bannon was an excellent surgeon! He took the time to explain the procedure and really made sure it was what's best for me. He even went as far as calling other GI doctors and making sure they all agreed that this was the best decision. He's made personal phone calls to my family to explain the process and where to go next. I trusted his opinions and decisions 100%. Highly recommend.

Dr. Bannon was unprofessional, arrogant and disrespectful. I would not recommend seeing this surgeon.

I was completely at ease with his knowledge and patient manner. His explanations and experience made me feel comfortable before and after my procedures, He is a gentle,kind professional who made me and my family know that we had made the right choice. He spent a great deal of time reviewing my previous reports and procedures, with other doctors, and reassured me of their due-diligence in the handling of my surgeries. I am thankful and appreciative of Dr. Bannon and his services. Artie B.
