Dr. Goss definitely knows his stuff, his bedside manners are slightly lacking....but if you get relief from your pain it is a small thing that I am willing to deal with. His staff is the best!

Very poor patient-side manners. Had no empathy for my concerns and worries as patient -- so I "fired him" face-to-face. I cancelled my scheduled surgery with him and looked for another doctor. NOTE: I was willing to suffer longer with my back pains than let this doctor treat me. Thats how bad this experience was. He had no patience with explaining what he was going to do. Didn't see my MRIs when recommended surgery. He was visibly angry at my asking questions. Checkout other reviews on him

Though recovery has been a very long process, I'm generally pleased with the choice to have spinal fusion surgery.

Dr. Goss has been a really great asset to my spinal health. He's not afraid to tell you how he sees it, whether you wish to hear it or not. I'll keep recommending him to those in need of spinal care. Furthermore, his staff has been great. Thanks for everything you all do.....Keep up the great work!

I have been a patient of Dr. Goss’s for over 15 years. He has always treated me with respect, and honesty. He has performed 4 different spinal surgeries on me, and I have never considered going to anyone else.

I may have been a bit apprehensive because Dr. Goss appeared so young but by the time I left the office I felt like I understood the surgery, recovery time, etc. The surgery was a success but I ended up having a spinal leak. Dr. Goss helped me to relax about the whole second surgery. He explained everything. He always asks if you have questions. He really listens. 7 weeks after my second surgery and I feel like a new person. I have my life back. Thank you Dr. Goss

Dr. Goss is very professional and at the same time personal. I appreciated the amount of time he spent with me at the office, and he and his PA helped me see what my neck issue was by looking at the MRI so that I could make an educated decision whether to have surgery or not.

Dr. Goss has been treating me for an injury to my spine since July 2017. He and his staff have taken the time to explain my condition and all options available to treat it. I have had many questions for things I have no training to even understand the injury, the mechanics of how the spine and disks work, and the treatments of such. Dr. Goss took the time to address all my fears and questions I had for nerves being affected by my injury. I have faith in him to treat me with a full recovery.

I have been to Dr Goss twice for cervical epidural injections. His office is excellent they return a call in an instant and he explains everything in black and white. He has wonderful bedside manner. J am hoping to not have to have surgery but I feel confident if I have to he will be excellent!

Dr. Goss and his entire staff are polite and professional. Their attention to detail and welcoming attitude makes me feel like they are genuinely concerned about me. In fact, whenever I'm asked about my surgery and if I would recommend Dr. Goss and the SMOC Family my immediate response is absolutely! Then I proceed to the office number from my cell phone. It's good to know there are doctors who treat people with dignity and respect who team up with staff who also embrace the same ideology.
