What People Say About Dr. Howard Gogel, MD

I would def recommend Dr.Gogel! I was having issues getting food down appropriately, to the point I was choking. He got me in the next day for an endoscopy to see what was going on. He personally walked with me out to the receptionist to ensure that I got scheduled immediately. He explained everything to me in the means I could understand. After the procedure he personally called to ensure I was doing okay and that I had everything I needed.

I was extremely nervous about having a colonoscopy. Dr. Gogel very kindly explained the procedure and what to expect. It was in fact painless. Afterward he told me the findings and made sure I was feeling well enough to be discharged (as a plus, he used anesthesia that is out of the system in an hour - that was much appreciated). A kind person and an excellent doctor.

Saw me in the hospital, was caring and very helpful. Had me follow up in his office in timely manner and amazingly is on time for appointments. He listens to what I have to say and my concerns. Uses generic medicines that are cheaper than the brand name medicines, but work just as well. And his office staff remember me and are very friendly.

Dr. Gogel was prompt, efficient, and explained in details the results of my colonoscopy. He called me 2 days after the procedure with my biopsy results and answered all my questions. Highly recommend him.
