in Kissimmee, FL |
Dr. Goel was understanding, knowledgable and honest. I was visiting from Florida and had to see someone to drain a pilonidol cyst. If I need surgery I will travel back to Ohio from Florida so that Dr. goes can perform my surgery. Best surgeon I have spoken to regarding this problem so far
