I would not recommend this doctor. She is unprofessional and gets an "F" for her style of communication and care (which are NONE). In my experience, this doctor barely made eye contact, only talked when asked questions, and then answered those questions while backing out of the room -- she didn't even complete her sentence! And she prescribed meds/therapy with zero explanation. In my opinion, that makes her a terrible choice for anyone's healthcare needs.

Was not impressed. Left her office not knowing anymore than I knew when I entered. Very impersonal and cold. Wrote a prescription for me to have blood test done and did not suggest a followup visit with her. I definitely will not recommend anyone go to her. I will have the test done but will not go back to her.

After 20 years of visiting numerous Drs. for difficulty breathing, Dr Gogenta was the first one to suggest it could be my esphogaus. After specialized testing, her diagnosis was correct. I struggle with CFS and it affects my esophagus. I am so grateful for her.

Waited over an hour, doctor kept getting pulled outside with different patients or questions while leaving me on the room waiting. Not professional. She didn't talk much or explain things clearly, very vague. Not a very comfortable doctor to talk to. Sometimes we just have that feeling she's not the right doc for you.

On Dec 1, 2016 I went to Dr Gogoneata and she took some vials of blood to determine if I have Lupus. She said that results may take up to a week and that her office will call me with the results. After 2 weeks & calling her office more than 3 times, I was told to come to the office. I said I can't that I just need over the phone the blood results. The secretary seemed irritated and rude. It is now Dec 29 and I still have not heard from them. Real bad experience!!!

Unknowledgable Doctor who misdiagnosed Rheumatoid Arthritis for Fibromyalgia and a vitamin D deficiency even with lab results to the contrary. I found out about the diagnosis on the visit summary paperwork after I left. Was told to exercise to fix my swelling when I was in too much pain to walk. Did not put in any effort to find proper diagnosis when symptoms were in consistent and blamed symptoms on lifestyle without ever asking about lifestyle. Terrible bedside manner and person.
in Kewanee, IL |
DR ordered blood work. Then told me to come back in 3 months. I Called office for test results and they would not give them to me over the phone. I drove 2 hours to obtain my results but she nor her staff would give me any information. I asked them to share my test results and DR notes with my primary care physician and nothing was ever released. Neither the Dr nor the staff have any personality skills!! Will not be going back and wasting my time or money with this DR!!
