The following is copied from a post from last year and I could not have said this any better: "Dr. Gooch and the entire staff at St. Lukes treated me like I was the most important patient they were dealing with that day. Dr. Gooch is extremely knowledgeable in eye care and always friendly and professional. I would recommend him without reservation for anyone needing eye care."

From the moment you walk into his immaculate, state-of-the-art facility you are greeted by his friendly staff and made to feel completely at ease. Dr Gooch came highly recommended by two physicians and I have been seeing him for almost two years. He is kind and professional. I am very happy with his pre-testing process and his exam.

He has been kind and helpful regarding my eyesight and glaucoma medication. My only concern was that the meds that worked best were not covered by insurance. However Dr Gooch did write a prior authorization and the insurance did cover me until the end of the year. No doubt I will have to have another PA in the new year.
