Gaylord is a quack - he was so rude to me and appears to have little knowledge of how the digestive system works. Told me that i read too much and tried to tell me that my symptoms were from being 'nervous'. He tried to tell me i had IBS - Turns out i had food allergies [had to figure that out on my own]. This is a stupid man - stay away!

Dr Gaylord performed a routine colonoscopy on my immediate family member in July. He perforated her colon 1 cm, sent her to the ER to confirm that he had, and sent her home! She ended up hours later taken back via ambulance, had an emergency bowel resection within 24 hours & spent the next 8 days hospitalized. She now has a scar from chest to pelvis and is facing several more weeks of recuperation after the surgeon saved her life. He has made crass phone calls to her since.

Dr. Gaylord performed my husband's colonoscopy. Unfortunately, he found a large cancerous tumor. Dr. Gaylord did proceed with CT, and confirmed the high likelyhood of lymph node involvement. He then promptly referred my husband to a vascular surgeon. Yes, this doctor is also a general surgeon, but his specialty is veins. How do you refer a cancer patient to the wrong specialty?! The surgeon's office confirmed we would have gone only to be redirected to the only colon surgeon in town.
My experience was through my brother and just from what I saw this doctor had no attention to detail, no compassion, and my brother probably would have gotten better results if he had been seen by some 7 year old playing doctor. I would not recommend this doctor or New Hanover Regional hospital to anyone that wants to live. The last time I saw this doctor in hospital he didn't even check vitals, computer, and barely looked the direction of my brother. This is just what I witnessed.
