I’ve many complications and Dr. Goodner is a wonderful doctor. He coordinates my care with my specialists, takes time to answer all of my questions and I never have felt rushed. I trust him. I also appreciate the care his nursing team provides.

Review for Dr. Foley

Dr Khanna is very professional, thorough, explains everything in terms a lay person can understand, kind, patient and listens to the patient. I highly recommend him. Cataract surgery was completely pain free and he explained everything as the procedure was being done. Wonderful staff/team as well.
