Dr. Goyal's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Goyal "I became a physician because I wanted to help people live happier, healthier lives. In that regard, ophthalmic surgery is the perfect fit for me. I get to care for one of our most precious gifts – vision – while helping people get the confidence and improved self-esteem that result from a well-done eye or facial enhancing procedure."

Dr. Goyal spends time listening. Very happy with results of lid lift..
Mount Vernon, NY |
I needed to have cataract surgery, and lucky for me, a cardiologist friend of mine, recommended D. Goyal.I'm so very glad I went to see him. Dr. Goyal is very kind, gentle and reassuring. I felt confident of his ability the minute I spoke with him. He performed cataract surgery on my right eye; the result is just wonderful. No pain, no side effect, just plain clear vision. The surgical center staff is very friendly and professional. I very sincerely recommend D. Goyal. Thanks much Dr. Goyal!!

I had two previous surgeries on my drooping eye lids with no success. Dr Goyal solved this problem in a matter of a couple of weeks .

Overall professional, efficient, caring and comfortable experience with Dr. Goyal and his staff.
Newburgh, NY |
My experience with the Wappingers Falls, NY office was terrible. I make an appointment to see Dr. Goal, and his associate doctor walks in. I took the morning off from my job to see Dr. Goal, not the other doctor. A phone call from the office would have been the professional thing to do, or at least let me know when I was checking in thato Dr. Goyal wasn't there.

I was to have a skin tag removed on my eyelid. His staff kept coming in and dropping numbing drops in both my eyes. I questioned why they were numbing both eyeballs considering I had an exterior skin tag on one lid. The doctor came in, looked at me and said "I think you are the kind of patient who faints. I want you to come back and put you under general anesthesia." What??? I immediately left! I went to my dermatologist who snipped it off without numbing it. No problem. Strange experience.
in Wurtsboro, NY |
Dr. Goyal performed procedures on both my eyes and did a fantastic job.
in Rhinebeck, NY |
His words were very comforting and I was very satisfied with the results of my surgery
in Monroe, NY |
I was very uptight about having surgery performed on my eyes. The lid muscle needed repair and I knew no one who had this type of surgery to clue me in. Dr Goyal was recommended by another plastic surgeon who was honest enough to say he didn't do that type of repair. I will say that Dr Goyal put me at ease and his staff was friendly, patient and encouraging as well. The surgery went well and I am so pleased with the results.
in New Windsor, NY |
After performing a delicate biopsy of a lesion on my eye, Dr. Goyal, very gently and compassionately, informed me that I had malt lymphoma. The lymphoma, as it turned out, was throughout my body. As a result of his consultations and cooperation with my oncologist, I've undergone four months of very successful chemotherapy treatment. I am very grateful that Dr. Goyal continues to monitor my progress and is involved in my cancer remission.
in Newburgh, NY |
More than a good doctor, I value the fact that you were a good listener. Also, he instill a great deal of confidence friendly and caring people. He is one of the most just professionals in the country; i also value the fact that your staff attitude was exceptional. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of my recent trichiasis surgeries.
