Had total hip replacement back in 10/2018 and now have no pain. I have a physical job (on my feet for 8 hours and some lifting) and didn't think I would feel normal again. He explains his procedure and what to expect afterwards. Staff is very friendly and longest wait time was no more than 15 minutes.

I've been going to this practice for years, but I've finally reached my breaking point. Useless Patient Portal, requirement to provide the same information over and over, unresponsive staff, ridiculous scheduling (several patients can, defying the laws of physics, be scheduled for the same time), unacceptable waits (typically 45 min., recently 1 hour 20 min), and a doctor who told me there was nothing wrong with my joint, despite the very noticeable swelling and continuous pain.

I’ve had 11 successful muscular/skeletal surgeries due to high impact sports, Two of those surges by Dr. Goral. He is by far the best surgeon I’ve had in every way. Heads above the others in attentiveness, explanation an outcome. I also work in the medical profession and know many MD’s and surgeons and many very good ones. It will be very hard to find one (and a practice ) that covers all the bases like this man and the group he works with.

I feel so lucky that I found Dr Goral. He did a total hip arthrplasty, anterior approach, & I'm so happy with it! I'm only on my 2nd post op day, but already feel pretty good!

Dr. Goral is the best of the best. I had knee replacement in April and about to do the other leg next week. He has many years of experience and it shows. I went home the day after surgery. No surgery is wonderful but I believe Dr. Goral made it as good as it can get. He answered all questions in a friendly helpful manner. I have already recommended him to several friends who have used his services.

Best doctor I've ever seen. Funny, warm, kind and gives you the right amount of time that you need. He knows that you want to have a short visit but he still manages to deliver the right amount of care needed in that time. Incredibly knowledgable. Excellent doctor.
