What People Say About Dr. Laura Goguen, MD

My father was operated on by Dr. Goguen for advanced stage throat cancer. It has been more than a year since his surgery and radiation treatment. He was back to gardening this summer and again is enjoying his retirement. Quite simply, she saved his life and we are very grateful to her and her staff. My father doesn't use a computer so asked me to write the following on his behalf: "Doing well. Excellent explanation and presentation of my problem. Great surgery and thorough follow up - certainly made me feel special." Highly recommend.

Dr. Goguen and her nurse practitioner, Ronnie, are amazing. They are thorough, knowledgeable, and very patient. I had a left and right thyroid bed revision, as well as a right neck dissection. Dr. Goguen explained everything, checked on me each day while in the hospital, and made sure I was doing well. She is extremely professional, but easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.

Dr. Goguen recently completed a lengthy, difficult surgery on my husband. She is extraordinary in both her capabilities as a surgeon and her willingness to thoughtfully explain what she would do, what she then did and why. She answered all of our questions and we just cannot say enough about what a fantastic surgeon she is. She also has an excellent support staff, including the amazing Ronnie whose support has been invaluable.

Dr. Goguen got me in ASAP for my surgery. She did an outstanding job, considering that I could have been left with permanent facial paralysis. She came to see me every day that I was recovering and kept me well informed. She was always pleasant, smiling and answered all my questions. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Laura A Goguen has superior competencies in all areas: examination; communication; diagnosis, and surgical outcome. I had a growth in the inside of my nose that required surgery. She did a through examination, answered all of my questions in a way that I could understand, was personable AND professional simultaneously. The surgical outcome was excellent. I had an fully informed understanding of each step along the way in my care. I have recommended her and will continue to do so should someone I know have medical needs in her area of specialty.

Dr. Goguen had a very good bed side manner and kept myself and my family updated before, during and after my surgery. She was very professional and always gives me the time I needed to ask questions. She did an outstanding job on my surgery and was very careful to ensure I did not lose any mobility or facial functions.

I was diagnosed with tongue cancer. Dr. Goguen was extremely professional in explaining everything about the disease and what needed to be done. I gained an immediate trust of this doctor and was rewarded when she performed an exemplary surgery that resulted in all the cancer being eradicated. I would highly recommend Dr.Goguen to anyone that needed care.
