Probably a good surgeon, but not so good a bed-side manner.

Dr. Land lied to me to get me into an unnecessary gall bladder surgery, telling me he'd consulted a GI specialist that he never spoke to, and that I'd insisted be included. He got his big pay day. I could have died. My real medical issue got worse as a result of his prescriptions and surgical stresses, thus so did my risks and family costs.

I would like to commend Dr. Land and his entire team for the wonderful job done to complete my surgery on April 9, 2018. Dr. Land's skill, courtesy, and care are much appreciated. The skills of the anesthesiologist are particularly appreciated. A few years ago I had surgery and the anesthetics left my mind cloudy for a week or more. I told the Doctor responsible for anesthesia about this. His anesthesia left my mind clear almost from the moment of awakening. Dr. Land's entire team is great!
