I have been a patient of Dr. Gopsl for over 5 years, and he has been excellent. My acid reflux has diminished significantly, and I feel fine. He is pleasant and easy to talk with, and I highly recommend him.

I’ve been a patient for several years and Dr. Gopal was so good that I even had my teenage daughter see him when she needed to have adenoid surgery. My husband has also been a patient. I had sinus problems my whole life and it wasn’t until Dr. Gopal that I got some relief. He was conservative and treated the problem with medication for several years and when surgery was needed he was able to do it minimally invasive. It’s been 2 months out and for the first time ever I can really breathe well!

Dr. Gopal confidently said I needed a 2-part surgery 6 months apart because of the severity of my condition. Since then I consulted with 4 other very reputable ENTs who all told me that a 2-part surgery makes no sense, and puts me at risk for a lifelong complication. The only plausible explanation they said was that he tried to make this count as 2 separate procedures for insurance purposes so he could double his earnings. Apparently he has a reputation for prescribing unnecessary procedures.

Don’t believe Dr. Gopal’s ‘expert’ opinions. He ordered a CT Scan and told me that in addition to my deviated septum I also needed sinus surgeries. He prescribed strong antibiotics and said if I don’t take those my insurance company will not allow the surgery. My nephew, who is an experienced radiologist, reviewed my CT Scan and confirmed that my sinuses were all clear!!! It is really upsetting that Dr. Gopal recommended an unnecessary sinus surgery, to make more money.

I just recently had sinus surgery and Dr. Gopal was wonderful! I was very nervous and he eased my worries with a great bedside manner by explaining everything to me. The surgery went very well no issues.

As a surgeon myself I was pretty selective about who would do my endoscopic sinus surgery. Dr. Gopal did a totally outstanding job. I recommend him extremely highly
