This Dr is very rude, arrogant, unprofessional and nasty. gives a hard time to give prescription ( new or refill). when asked for a new prescription after a first-time visit, he said he does not care, won't call pharmacies and its pharmacists responsibility to request one if the patient needs one.dont recommend this MD

An excellent Dr. I was feeling sick and was able to call in the afternoon and get an appointment the same day. When I arrived there were people waiting, and all the office staff were friendly. Even though I was a walk in, he stayed after office hours to see me. Dr. Goyal himself was very knowledgeable, and was genuinely concerned with me and my condition. He wasn't rushed or hurrying, and took the time to not only answer every question I had with concise plain answers. He took the time to learn

He is a very caring doctor. He answered all the questions that I had without being rushed. I would recommend him to all my family members.

Dr. Goyal is the greatest. He is a very caring person, explains your results in a language you can understand, not always using medical terms. If you call for any problems you can call his cell phone after hours. He will not discuss results because of HIPAA laws but is available to you. Very personable, explains everything to you and answers all your questions. Not trying to rush you out. I couldn't say more for the office staff.

1. the office staff goes around speaking Spanish when I can't even understand them. 2. I have type 2 diabetes and this doctor was insisting that I only need to check my glucose levels once a week. His exact words were what are you going to do with that information anyway. He told me his father is diabetic and he only checks once a week and that is all I need to check. He got very loud and insistent with me. 3. The office staff put the wrong medication I was taking in the computer for refill
