About

Bio

I have been in a clinical community-based general surgery practice since 1975. I currently have full general surgery privileges in two leading acute care hospitals in Tallahassee Florida. Performed over 15,000 major and minor procedures to date and am currently performing 250 procedures a year. My particular focus areas are GI, breast, hernia, and anorectal surgeries; but I have substantial broad general surgery experience. No liability claims in over 30 years of practice. I am also a certified risk manager and have conducted quality of care reviews for two leading hospital systems.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 29-year-old female asked:

Yes: Sliding hiatal hernias are the most common of the hernias that occur around the lower esophagus and are commonly associated with reflux. Clinically significant reflux can occur with or without a hiatal hernia and is usually the cause of the symptoms mistakingly attributed to the hernia. Gastro-esophageal Reflux Disease(GERD) can also co-exist with other digestive diseases . GERD medications work.
A 58-year-old male asked:

Dr. Al Deeb answered

Yes,but atypical: Atypical presentations to common problems in medicine and surgery occurs but not very often. If the blockage from a hernia is partial, slowly progressive to allow compensation and not associated with peritoneal inflammation it may have very few to no symptoms at times, however the condition will soon go over a tipoff point and symptoms of incarceration and ultimately strangulation will develop.
