Called to make appt for Feb 7 (next available date) according to internet. Found this is a blatant LIE< next available date was 27 Feb. If they start out lying, what ia a patient to expect? Will not be using this dr. Will not recommend at all.

Dr Gomes helped me tremendously after I was exposed to muratic acid. He always listened to me for as long as I needed him to. I was under his care for 3 yrs before I was well enough that I no longer needed him. I loved his nurses & staff

I have sat-in on several appointments with my husband, have not been impressed with Dr. Gomes. He wants to diagnose everything as being cancer when tests prove it is not. Will be looking for a new doctor.
