Absolutely wonderful doctor - caring, compassionate, listens to patient and spends time with you. Recently had procedure for spine issues at Peabody-Lahey - superb staff who took their time in explaining procedure and were truly friendly as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Goel. So far the procedure has be highly satisfactory - what a relief - though I think there will come a time when surgery will be necessary (hoping not). Kudos, Dr. Goel and staff - truly the best!

I saw Dr. Goel for over 2 years for pain associated with severe and chronic spinal stenosis, arthritis, instability, etc. Dr. Goel and the neurosurgery staff were excellent in helping me manage the pain - without narcotics or opioids - for over 2 years with steroid injections, RF ablation, and PT. While we knew surgery was inevitable, Dr. Goel was crucial in helping to correctly diagnose the problem and help me manage the pain until we exhausted all non-surgery options. He was caring, strategic, and knowledgeable. I had surgery 3 months ago with Dr. Andrew Yew and am doing great. I can’t say enough about the entire neurosurgery team at Lahey. From front desk staff at Peabody and Burlington, to schedulers, nurses, and surgery staff (pre and post op), I could not have had a better experience.

ANN MARIE MARCOTTE – Aug 29, 2020
Dr. Goel is one of the best doctors I've seen at Lahey, and I've seen a lot there and elsewhere. He recommended a very well rounded approach to my debilitating sciatica pain that include PT, chiropractic, and very moderate exercise. After a month of that he finally gave me an injection L5/S1 that may have helped, although I was gradually gettin better anyway. What really impressed me was his care during the injection - he explained everything in detail and was not at all rushed as if I was the only patient he had all day. Dr. Goel is really a fantastic guy who I highly recommend.

Dr. Goel was very helpful in working with me on my pain management. He took the time to explain my condition, available treatments and the procedure. He then explained the risks, the expectations and aftercare to minimize future procedures. I would recommend him to anyone in my family as I felt he was one of the best physicians I have worked with.
