Fairfax Station, VA |
I would not recomend this doctor. He clearly did not know an infection when he sees one, goes by aspirations that are only 50% accurate. Told me that he would not treat me nor did he want to treat me and to go to a pain clinic.had his nurses escort us out. So humilating after we had to wait over an hour for his nurse to see us.

I had surgery with Dr Nitin Goyal Monday, and it was a great success. I had hip osteoarthritis, and the bone cartilage was gone. If you want to have joint replacement. Dr. Nitin Goyal is an expert.

Seven out of seven health professionals said that my hip was one of the worst that they had ever seen. Even with no medical training, I could see that my hip looked bad.. One health professional described the hip as “looking as if rats had chewed on the hip bone.” When I went for my year check up, Dr. Goyal had corrected the more than one inch difference in leg length. I have no pain and no limp. I'm so grateful to be able to walk.

I got a total hip with Dr. Goyal. On my consultation I was hurried and he left the room before I could ask all my questions. It wasnt like i was getting my tonsils out. He spent about 2 min. with me prior to surgery then I didn't hear from him again for 3 months after surgery. He never called post op. Even my first post op visit I didn't rate a face to face. I saw a PA. Who was very nice. Pain management was beyond aweful.

I love Dr.Goyal he explains every thing to you. He listen's I had the left knee done and would never go to another doctor. Fast in and out of the office and everyone smiles.

Superb surgeon. I was diagnosed with avascular necrosis at age 41, which required the THR (total hip replacement) of both hips. I was quite nervous and unsure. Dr. Goyal and his staff were outstanding in managing my expectations, and almost miraculously getting me back to my active, pre-diagnosis self. Absolutely superb. I highly recommend him, his team, and Anderson Clinic in general.
in Charles Town, WV |
Excellent surgeon. I would recommend the Anderson Orthopaedic Clinic to anyone seeking joint therapy/reconstruction/replacement. The staff are great and provide state of the art care across the entire spectrum from diagnosis to follow up.
