Came to Dr. Goforth with plantar fasciitis problems. He andhis staff have done a great job explaining the problem, what it is and working to find a solution that will work for me: as a chef and a runner I must have my feet working for me—not against me!! I hate goi g to doctors, yet have found my visits here to be quite pleasant with no hassles! I never feel rushed and I am encouraged to ask questions about my condition.

I previously had surgery on my foot by another surgeon, and that did not work out well. I was given Dr. Goforth’s name and decided to make an appointment. First of all, the office staff is amazing! I was greeted with professionalism, kindness and respect. I cannot say enough about Dr. Goforth! He is an exceptional doctor. He thoroughly explained the procedure before the surgery, and invited any questions before, during and after. I trusted him completely with good reason!

He did not seem much like a doctor. More like a used car dealer trying to talk himself up.

Dr. Goforth is a very good doctor. I had polio as a child and need continual foot care. He is very professional and friendly. He has handled emergency situations with me as well as routine foot care. Best dr. on the Western Slope in my opinion.

Everyone in this office is very friendly and helpful. They genuinely care. Dr. Goforth listens and explains things very well. I have never been more comfortable at a doctor's office. I'm still in recovery but I'm very happy with my recent surgery.

Doug has been a friend of mine and respected colleague for over a decade. His dedication and skill is of the highest caliber as well as is his sense of nurturing towards his patients. He actively searches out 'line of best fit' in regards to his care plans. Whether it's conservative management or intricate reconstructive surgery Doug offers a fresh perspective and a caring solution.
