Nov, 16, 2020 I saw Dr. Goff at CA Orthopedics & Spine on October 7. The X-ray and MRI tests he prescribed showed a small rotator cuff tear, some bursitis and tendonitis. I chose to do 4 weeks of physical therapy. My physical therapist evaluated my progress carefully and faxed the results to Dr. Goff who hadn't bothered to read the report. When I tired to talk to him about my pain situation he simply replied “Do you want a cortisone injection or surgery?”indicating the limit of his interest. Nor was he interested in looking at a printout of pillows that might relieve pain. I then commented “ You are a strange doctor” . Dr. Goff saw this comment as an insult which he could not accept. I was told I should choose a new dr. He could provide names. The cortisone injection was left hanging until a nurse practitioner came in and offered to give it. In tears, I accepted. Dr. Goff showed no willingness to care about me, his patient. I cannot recommend him.

Dr. Jonathan Goff is a bad doctor. During surgery he was unable to align my bones (so now I’m dealing with a permanent shoulder joint deformity) and was careless inserting the hardware to secure the fracture, specifically, the plate was misaligned and he left a large screw sticking out of my bone, which led to chronic pain and immobility. His bedside manner is terrible - he sometimes shouted at me during appointments and dismissed my complaints about pain!

I saw Dr. Goff today and feel very confident going into my upcoming shoulder repair surgery. He was direct, thorough and didn't hesitate to give me a clear picture of what I can expect from the procedure. Short term, I can expect more pain before less, and there is a long term recovery required before attempting any movement that would compromise the surgery. But, doing this gives me my best chance of getting back to being the athlete I used to be. I will review again post procedure.
