Dr. Goforth's treatment did not work, so I looked forward to the follow up visit. When I arrived for follow up, the staff told me that my appointment was for the previous day. I had called that morning to confirm, and was told it was for the next day at 3:45. This is July, and the best they could do on reschedule for their mistake was November. My primary dr. office has referred me elsewhere, and I have an appt for August 7. I do NOT recommend Goforth or the staff at Carolina ENT.

Dr. Goforth is an excellent surgeon. He is very personable and cares about his patients. He makes you feel relaxed and comfortable before surgery and makes sure the heeling process is smooth. Highly recommended.

As a small business owner myself, I really *REALLY* give folks the benefit of the doubt. The doctors and medical staff were top notch but the front office staff was just awful, disrespectful, and rude. Pushing the blame and kicking the can down the road seem to be a running theme with their staff. I've gotta echo the other negative reviews, unfortunately. My surgery was a very dangerous one that made me fairly nervous and the staff didn't seem to care.
