    As a fertility specialist, you would think, Dr. Gocial could diagnose and treat Endometriosis. Unfortunately, he can't. I went to him while having several flare ups of Endometriosis and he told me over and over again that my issue wasn't caused by endometriosis. I went to another specialist who did surgery and removed Endometriosis from every part of my abdomen and pelvic area. So much for my issues not being caused by Endo. He needs to educate himself about ENDOMETRIOSIS

    My interaction with Dr. Gocial is on the negative side. When I had an ectopic pregnancy he performed the ultrasound scan and said he found the gestational sac in my uterus. In fact that was not gestational sac. Due to his mistake a few days later my tube was ruptured and I was bleeding. He suggested me to wait till the next day and go to the office since I was not heavily bleeding. I didn't listen and went to ER. Eventually I had an emergency surgery and my right tube was removed.

    He's a caring, gentle doctor.
