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.
