Patient Reviews (19)
in Groton, Ma |
Rare combination of kind and competent. Listens well and takes the whole person into consideration when deciding on best course of action. Big believer in doing no harm and will exhaust other treatment options before surgery, this is a good thing! If surgery is necessary he is well versed in best practices, especially for biologic joint reconstruction. Cartilage procedures are his forte and he's keeping me active at 40 when other doctors would have just given up on my knee.
in Warren, MA |
Cannot say enough great things about Dr. Gomoll and his practice. Never had issues with appointments, visits, surgeries, follow-ups, etc. As a doctor I felt he was very personable and actually seemed genuinely concerned about me as a patient.
in Marshfield,MA |
My experience with Dr Gomoll has been extremely positive. He takes the time to clearly explain his diagnosis and discusses options objectively. I never felt rushed or "just another patient". After years of knee pain and countless time spent doing PT and receiving cortisone shots; I am pain free. My daily activity has increased and I am looking forward to exercising again.
Natick, MA |
Dr Gomoll put my knee back together almost 8 years ago. Without that procedure I certainly be contemplating a knee replacement. He seems to handle the worst of the worst. His OA Courtney is always very helpful. A very skilled surgeon.
Weymouth, MA |
Dr. Gomoll took a conservative approach to treating a torn meniscus. Ultimately, I needed to have a surgical procedure to address a meniscal tear; I am very please with the results. There was a lot of helpful communication and explanation from Dr. Gomoll and his staff before, during and after the procedure. Every question I had was thoughtfully and thoroughly answered.
Worcester, MA |
very professional staff all around, really care about the patient's well-being, overall great experience
in Arlington, MA |
Dr Gomoll performed ACI surgery on me in December 2014. The surgery went well and I have since returned to all of my activities. He followed up and was always friendly and professional. While I hope to not need another knee surgery, I would go back to Dr Gomoll, particularly if I need ACI on the other knee at some point.
in Medfield, MA |
I have never had a Doctor like Dr. Gomoll. His patience, understand, compassion, and knowledge are a rare combination in Doctor's today, especially specialist who have very little time. The quality you get with each visit is a gift. I have recommended him to numerous people who have been very happy with him. I am happy that I found Dr. Gomoll.
in Calais, VT |
He did a great job of explaining my options. The Conformis partial knee replacement surgery has gone well so far. Three weeks after surgery I have accomplished 120 degree range of bend. This is following the recommended PT exercise regimen. He called me the day after the surgery to see how I was doing. My home health team were highly impressed with the outcome with the Conformis knee and wound healing. I would recommend him wholeheartedly. Brigham Womens Faulkner Hospital rocks.
in Burlington, MA |
Dr Gomoll did a high-tibial osteotomy to relieve my severe knee pain. It's a surgery, I later found out, that most orthopedic surgeons today don't even know how to do. That surgery solved my problem and made it unnecessary to get a knee replacement. Dr Gomoll puts the patient first, he is not out to "sell" surgeries, he explains everything in plain English, and he's always upbeat and personable. He's the best!
in Plymouth, MA |
Dr. Gomoll is a smart, capable surgeon. He told me exactly what to expect, and both my treatment and recovery matched those expectations. I felt well-informed and well-prepared. We were happily surprised to receive a follow-up call from Dr. Gomoll (on a Sunday!) just to check on my progress after 48-hours (post-surgery) and share additional tips so that I would be more comfortable. All in all, Dr. Gomoll has a terrific demeanor and is incredibly sharp.
in Stafford, VA |
I have been with Dr. Gomoll for four years now and I have never been cared for by such an amazing, bright doctor. Not only is Doctor Gomoll an expert in cartilage research he also takes a lot of time educating his patients on their conditions and courses of action. His bedside manner is impeccable and unlike any doctor, especially at his level of expertise.
in Boston, MA |
Spent not even five minutes and refused to understand the pain I was having and gave me the wrong treatment.... I been to him a few time... not sure why he is so great...
in Portland, ME |
My experience with Dr. Gomoll couldn't have gone any better. He is EXCELLENT. From the second I met with him until a year post (TODAY!), the experience was absolutely amazing. Most importantly, my knee is like new. I workout every single day and I am pain free. Simply amazing! I may add that I drove over 2 hours to see him and it was SO worth it!
in Boston, MA |
Dr. Gomoll's holistic approach is comforting and welcoming. I have never felt so confident in a surgeon before. I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. Gomoll, and all three have been a success. I always recommend him to other people that require sport injury treatment. Not stone is left un-turned in exploring options for action and recovery.
Boston, MA |
Dr. Gomoll is an excellent doctor. Scheduling me appointment with his staff went without any difficulties. His Admin Trisha was very pleasant. The physician assistant Courtney came into the exam room first and gathered a lot of information. Then following with Dr. Gomoll when he entered the room he gave me a sense of comfort. He was excellent at explaining the reasons for my symptoms and made me feel I was in the best possible care. Highly recommend!!!
in MA |
Excellent medical advice. Conservative approach on surgery is very appreciated.
in Newmarket, NH |
I wish I had found Dr. Gomoll sooner! His technical expertise as well as his calm and reassuring manner made my experience excellent. I am recovering quickly after cartilage repair and arthroplasty of my knee. I would recommend him highly
