In the 25 years I have been Dr. Goss's patient he has been one of my favorite Dr.s'. He has done 3 back surgeries and replaced my knee twice and I always had a quick recovery with great results.

He be experimenting on people and do not do an excellent job! He speed talk and treat you like a number. He did not send me to therapy after surgery and that causes you to have to go back and get a manipulation. I had to go to another doctor, and I was told the new doctor fixed over 30 patients that game from Dr. Goss; but he could not fix me.

Dr. Goss was highly reccomended to me by others when I needed surgery and I am glad I listened. My experience was that not only was Dr. Goss a very skilled surgeon (I was told by another Doctor I would at best walk with a limp the rest of my life; One year later no limp, no pain and hardly even a scar!) both he and all his staff were professional, courteous, and took time to listen and not try to rush me in and out like so many others do. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Goss to everyone!
