As a surgeon often referred the most complex and complicated cases in my specialty, I understand how stressful it can be for patients and families who have suffered greatly from a significant medical condition that requires surgery.

About

Dr. Gould joined Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin as the Chief of General Surgery (now known as Minimally Invasive and Gastrointestinal Surgery) in 2011 after 9 years in practice at the University of Wisconsin. He is currently Professor of Surgery and he holds the Walker Endowed Chair in General Surgery at the Medical College. He has a national reputation as a minimally invasive foregut surgeon (specializes in the surgical treatment of diseases of the stomach and esophagus) and as a bariatric surgeon (weight loss surgery). He is frequently invited to give talks on his areas of expertise, and has published extensively on these topics as well. His research focus is on clinical outcomes in foregut surgery, innovation and the development of new surgical devices and technologies, and surgical skills training through simulation.

Very friendly, answered my questions so I could understand what was happening with the problems I have going on! Dr Could explained how the surgery would be done from beginning to end. The following appointments were done promptly and very professionally! I do believe and feel I am in very good hands with Dr Could and his Staff. I will be glad when the pain is finally gone! Thank you all!
Under the circumstances a very pleasant experience.
Love Dr Gould! He's a great doctor!
Their explanation of the process for my care and treatment was very precise and explained very well.
Very well at informing me about what's wrong with me and the plan. Very friendly didn't rush me and didn't use medical terms I did not understand. Very good
Dr Gould was very good at explaining all my options, also he didn't say I needed to have surgery right away, I feel he was very honest, he made me feel good when we left
