Dr. Goad was super attentive to my husband when he needed gall bladder surgery. He prepared us well and did exactly what he said. Great bedside manner in the hospital! I highly recommend Dr. Goad.

I would absolutely recommend Dr Goad to my friends, family or anyone looking for a highly skilled surgeon with exceptional bedside manner. I think he’s the best out there (I had two other surgical consults). Dr Goad performed my hernia surgery 2/2017 & when I needed my gallbladder removed this week 9/2018 I returned to Dr Goad & am again 100% happy. In today’s day & age where insurance companies have changed care it has not at this office. Everyone in his office gives exceptional patient care.

Would not recommend. Saw him for a buttock issue. After first surgery issue soon returned, after second surgery it returned again. This was just within several months. Turned out he gave the wrong diagnosis. I finally saw a specialist who told me what it actually was and he removed it - one time, with lots less inconvenience and discomfort compared to the first two wrongly diagnosed surgery's. I will say the staff and Dr. alone are nice enough people but lets get it right the first time please.

Dr. Was great BUT office clueless. My daughter has a cyst on her spleen, she called the office to make an appointment and told them what she was coming for AND had her films sent to him. She arrives, fills out the papers sees three medical assistants who all ask her why she’s there, in walks the doc to tell her he DOES NOT OPERATE ON SPLEENS ?? this wouldn’t be so bad if she didn’t skip a day of grad school in an advanced doctorate program in Miami, now she has exams coming and has to wait to se
