He was great! He answered any questions I had. Explained my procedure in language I could understand. Was very friendly & has a great bedside manner. His office staff are equally fantastic. His surgical asst. Kathy is wonderful! Very compassionate. The rest of the staff are also great. The help they give with paperwork/ insurance really makes an unpleasant situation tolerable. Dr. Gossman was quick to get the ball rolling with my unpleasant diagnosis and direct me to the path i needed to start treatments. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Gossman is by far the best surgeon I have ever had!! I had severe eye trauma and had my original eye surgery with another surgeon. After 3 appointments they referred me to Dr. Gossman for an evaluation. When he first walked in I advised him of my concern and he agreed with me. He told me a plan and surgery date. From the initial visit I felt comfortable with him and his staff!! The morning after surgery I was able to open my eye, as to where I had the first surgery it took my eye a week to open. My eye has made more progress in a month of Dr. Gossman than it did in 3 months with the other provider! I am very satisfied and my results with Dr. Gossman and his staff and I would highly recommend them!!!

Dr. Gossman did a lower bleph surgery on me a few years ago. He took out too much fat. Because of it, my eyes look very hollow. Other doctors have told me that should not be done, to take out all the fat because hollowness will occur. When I discussed it with Dr. Gossman, he did not seem to know what I was talking about it. He said there is no such thing as leaving fat behind that you are to take it all out. He is an older doctor and does things the old way, probably needs to retire.

Dr. Gossman is simply the best! He made my husband and I feel like we were the only two people in the building. He was patient with our questions and most of all gave us options and assurances regarding my husband's diagnosis. Thyroid Eye Disease. Kathy his assistant is helpful, understanding and put us at ease. The entire office atmosphere is uplifting and most of all attentive to patient needs. Dr. Gossman soothed our worst fears. So thankful he is our physician.
