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. I strive to provide patient centered, timely, compassionate, and exceptional care to all of my patients. I aim to include my patients in the decision making process, to understand their treatment goals, and to create a treatment plan that is tailored just for them.

About

Dr. Gould joined Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin as the Chief of General 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.

When he mentioned that the barium swallow was not necessary, I asked WHY did you prescribe it? He railroaded over our conversation. I ask a lot of questions. His "bedside manners" could be improved.
