Dr. Trotter performed gastric surgery on me in 2016 and did an amazing job with pre- and post-surgery. He is informative, empathic, compassionate, talented, and the best surgeon. I recommend him to everyone and believe he left the Rapid City area. I would like to know where he is at these days. Dr. Trotter, you have changed my life for the better and will be forever grateful.

Very considerate, he took a lot of time with me. I had a difficult problem other surgeons were afraid to touch. Dr. Trotter figured out the problem and fixed it.
