Shrewsbury, MA |
I did not need surgery. Was leary of going because of all the negative reveiws. but everyone in office was very pleasant, including Dr. Goss.
in Princeton, MA |
This guy is awful. If I could give him a 0 I would. He does shoulder surgery the old fashioned way, no laparoscopy for him. Not only that he does not believe in pain meds for one of the most painful surgeries you can have. Be prepared to be treated like a drug seeker even as you are suffering hours of excruciating pain. He will also lie to you, if you are miserable in pain. You also hopefully do not desire to have any idea what your actual problem is and his specific treatment plan.

He misdiagnosed my knee injury. MRI showed a partial tear but he never even acknowledged that

Rudest Man ever!! Operated on my son 2 yrs ago and when going for his follow up he proceeded to yell at both my son and me for not telling him my son has epilepsy before he operated...EXCUSE ME but isn't that what records are for? Perhaps he should read them before operating! My son had to have a 2nd shoulder operation and the new surgeon had a huge mess to clean up from Dr Goss. He now needs a 3rd revision because he fell and Goss dismissed him sending him back to 2nd Dr who is no longer here

Had exam with this medical provider.(not going to use the term doctor)so I do not offend real doctors.I was sent to this person by Liberty Mutual.This so called doctor examined my injuries and filed his report which in turn had my workers comp cancelled.His report stated that I moved around the exam room with ease failed to mention he had to help put my right arm into my shirt.F.Y.I.Mr.Goss I have a tear in my rotator cuff and bone spurs in my right shoulder.Stay away.

I would give a ZERO on stars but it only does 1-5. Stay away. Run away from this doctor. I wish I did my research ahead of time.
