When I first Dr Goel, I was there because another surgeon didn’t have the time for. Dr Goel was a miracle worker with that hand and when I had to have my other one done he was the best. He explained everything in detail, drew me a picture, suggested some exercises for me to do (my first surgeon just didn’t seem interested. I had a carpal tunnel release). He is serious and focused but also has that kind of dry personality that you’re not sure of (which I appreciate) I would recommend him to any of my family or friends. Oh and he’s not bad on the eyes either! (maybe I shouldn’t put that in the review but it’s true)

I went to Dr. Goel for a possible wrist fracture. x-rays were taken - Dr. Goel went over the x-ray carefully with me. He also explained two possible issues that could come up in the next few weeks and how to recognize them. I truly felt that my issue had been handled well, and it was a relief to know what I could possible expect when I walked out the door.

Dr Goel performed the surgery for my de Quervains issue with my wrist. Dr Goel was patient and helpful with all my questions prior to the surgery. My recovery went as planned, I feel so much better after many years of pain. I highly recommend Dr Goel.

I highly recommend Dr. Goel if you are looking for an orthopedic surgeon. I went to him twice; once for treatment of de Quervain's tenosynovitis, and once for a needle aponeurotomy treatment for Dupuytren's contracture. Both procedures went well. He took care to explain the procedures, what to look out for in the recovery period, and what to expect long-term. Dr. Goel is a good listener as well, and has a great sense of humor which made an ordeal into a more positive experience.

Dr Goel has treated a knee and collarbone fracture for me and a collarbone fracture for my son in the past year. He has been highly impressive in these ways: Communicating clearly what your condition is and how best to treat it explaining options you may have, listening actively to your questions and concerns, responding to them in a respectful and kind manner, and being reassuring and confident as to your treatment outcome. Additionally, Dr Goel is very personable with a good sense of humor!
