Patient Comments (16)
in Leander, TX |
Dr. Godell is exactly what I look for in a doctor. I have felt like I was just another file to him but a valued patient. He always has time to explain what and why he is doing something and what the results of any testing shows. He spends time listening to me about what I am feeling and includes in the treatment process. I have never felt rushed or unimportant to him during any visit. His office staff also treats me with the same respect. I always leave feeling informed, cared for and respected.

I was recently in search of a new gastroenterologist, and my research led me to Dr. Godell at Austin Gastroenterology. The stellar online reviews describing his skill, knowledge, and bedside manner were spot on. My visit with Dr. Godell was not rushed; he took time to understand my medical history and answer all my questions. I felt heard at the appointment, which is rare in this day of rushed medical visits. Dr. Godell’s knowledge, experience, and manner made me feel extremely comfortable.

Dr. Godall has been my GI for 8 years. I do not have a specific diagnosis but have had resections and lyses surgeries and deal with Gastroparesis. He is always kind and concerned has sent me straight from his office to the E.R and checked on me while waiting for my husband to arrive. He understands I am complicated and always listens and validates my concerns. Takes his time and never leaves me feeling like a complainer. Highly recommend.

Dr.Godell is great. Very knowledgeable, great sense of humor, focuses on you, always explains things in words you can understand - has stuck with me through 3 resections and, now, with short gut syndrome. He's referred me to the best surgeon and other specialists. He really takes time and makes sure you understand.

Dr. Godell has been my Gastroenterologist for over ten years. He is very professional. I wouldn't go to anyone else.
in Round Rock, TX |
Dr Godell is very professional, made time for us and our many questions. He seems to be very knowledgeable and caring. I am planning to stick with him.
Temple, TX |
Doctor Godell is absolutely the best and I highly recommend him but his RN is not helpful or on top of her game. She did not want to be bothered to look up my last med which I described pretty specifically and wanted me to call back when I could tell her the med name? (which I no longer have the bottle for because meds are gone) I have sisters who are nurses and have seen many nurses due to my health problems and she gets the I don't giver a crap participation trophy!

He's ok, but if things don't go smooth for him, you know it.... won't be back to him. Sorry ??
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Godell was very professional, answered all my questions and took care of my issues. He was not in a hurry like most doctors are usually.
in Bartlett Tx |
Dr Godell is a very personable and likeable Doctor. Probably unknown to him, was that I was charged almost 850.00 out of pocket for a colonoscopy even though I had never received one in 10 years and was overdue. Apparently, when you have stomach problems, it is not covered as routine. I went to see Dr. Goddell in October, because I was not feeling well and wanted to get my digestive issues under control before my total knee replace in Jan. Not able to get appt until 3 days before my surgery
in Cedar Park, TX |
Will absolutely NOT take other patients that have seen another Gastro DR before. The most insane absurd thing I have ever heard. And i was not made aware of this at time of booking of my appointment.I was called the day before my appointment and told this.Very unprofessional.
