Dr Goyal was extraordinary when I had a severe infectious disease spreading throughout my hand. He immediately provided the needed surgery. When my wound needed drained, although I was frightened and argumentative, he took the time and patience in order for me to trust him and therefore saved my infection from spreading.

I had excellent care from Dr Goyal and his staff!! In fact I have never been to an office on Friday at 5 pm that was so happy. I had surgery the next morning and I didn’t even need pain killers after about 3-4 days. Four weeks out my wrist is healing nicely and no splint needed unless I feel as though I need it protected!! All in all I felt like received excellent care from Dr Goyal and highly recommend his expertise and that of his office.

I broke my left wrist when I fell forward, tripping on a curb. The Resident in the OSU ER recommended Dr. Goyal saying HE would send family members to him. Since we were leaving on a trip in 10 days, I was very concerned about what to do. Before I could even call for an appointment, Dr Goyal's office called me with an immediate scheduled appointment. He spent a long time with my husband and me, explaining (and drawing) everything. I opted for surgery in two days. I have healed quickly. Happy!

Dr. Goyal was recommended by the Neurologist I was seeing at the Ohio State Health Network. I was very impressed by how professional and descriptive he was at explaining what surgery would do to help my hand and wrist challenges. As surgery was needed, Dr. Goyal and his operating room staff made me feel very comfortable the morning of the pre and post surgery. Him and his staff were most concerned as to any questions and follow up after surgery and the weeks afterwards. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Goyal is one of the very best if not the best physician I have experienced over my 67 years. And I speak as someone who has survived aggressie cancer, chronic gastric issues, and lifelong pulmonary concerns in addition to osteoarthritis in both hands. He excels not only as an expert medical clinician but shows sincere compassion, empathy, and concern for his patients. A very effective communicator, he generously invests time with patients to insure understanding of their medical condition.

Dr Goyal seem to be rushed during the appointments. I feel Dr Goya blotched a five minute office procedure that cost me not just additional money but also additional pain and anguish. I am now going to another Dr for help as I has now develop problems that might be relate to the

I'm a local physician and when my elderly father (a retired physician) hurt his hand, I asked around to see who I should send him to. The overwhelming answer was Dr.Goyal at OSU. He was able to see my father quickly and diagnosed his injury and treated him conservatively. My father's injury healed well and he was very happy with his care.

The appointment was brief. I'd obviously already seen my primary care doctor. Placement of my IV had caused severe pain in my lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve. Dr. Goyal told me that there wasn't a nerve where I had my IV placed...but the placement is in the precise location of the nerve according to my GP & the hospital. No tests were ordered, which was the entire purpose of the visit. If lying, or that ignorant of basic anatomy is a mystery, but he certainly isn't a doctor to see for help.

He was very rude. Didn't even try to listen. He cut my conversation in between and said bye. He is one of the rudest doctor's I have ever met.

Was very condescending. Cut me off several times and openly questioned my pain/condition. Seemed more interested in impressing the two females (one a resident and the other a med student) who were also present for the exam.

He didn't listen. He acted as though I was crazy. Or as though what I was telling him was just not possible. Even though it clearly is. This made me not want to go back leaving me stuck with a problem and feeling mad and upset and not wanting to seek help any further. His resident though was very good , unfortunately he was silent once Doctor Goyal came in.
