Patient Comments (2)

Wrote three different diagnoses. Finally wrote diagnosis in chart that was never discussed during office visits. Final diagnosis was inconsistent with results from x-rays and other tests. Did not order a CT scan or other exams to confirm diagnosis. Makes unsubstantiated, baseless diagnoses...more

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.
