I believe that it is important for me to listen to the patient, and to take the time needed to make the right diagnosis, as well as to ensure that the patient is well educated about their condition and treatment options.

Dr. Goel is very skilled and greatly improved my health. She takes time to understand my needs and to explain her recommendations. She is very compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Goel.

My visit sounds exactly like Traci's. Dr. Goel wouldn't listen to my symptoms and it was barely a 15 min appt. She didn't exam me or do blood work or anything. She barely even asked questions. She lightly pushed on trigger points with all my clothes on (including a sweatshirt), asked me if it was tender, then said I had probably Fibromyalgia. I feel like she had already had her mind made up about me before I even got to the room. I also left there feeling disrespected with no answers.

She wouldn't listen to my symptoms , wouldn't look at my MRI reports I took with me. it was a 15 min appointment. She pushed on trigger points, asked me tender here and there, then said I had Fibromyalgia, handed me a piece a paper with mayoclinics website on it, told me to look it up and do research on it. No blood work, nothing! I left there with no answers. Tests have been done by someone else, came out positive for lupus; more tests ahead of me. I will not go back to that doc.

very poor, did not listen, written report was inaccurate, my PCP sent me as at 60 want ed alternative to NSAIDs. I have diagnosed from other Drs reactive, severe osteoarthritis and gout arthritis. All of my joints are affected, stenosis in the spine ruptured tendons ankles, knees, fingers. significantly decreased function. She did not do an examination, did not touch me, did not order tests. said I did not have arthritis, did not need to examine me could tell by looking. NTL she billed full visi

My appointment was scheduled for 10:30 (they say 10:20). I arrived at 10:26 and the front desk said I was late and my appt. had been cancelled by Dr. Goel. I waited 2 months for this appt.! I was told to reschedule which mean't waiting another 2 months. I suffer from Raynauds which has made each day painful to walk. I asked the Office Manager the length of the appt. Reply was 40 minutes. Dr. Goel could not see me for 34 minutes? That tells me a lot about Dr Goel. Not worthy of one star
