So very helpful in explaining what she would be doing in surgery. Did not rush in answering your questions. Dr. Goers was highly recommended to me and I would certainly do the same thing in return. The office staff was also excellent.

Dr Goers answered questions in understandable terms, listened intently, made me feel important and removed worry. She did not rush. After our meeting I felt confident enough to schedule surgery. Highly recommend Dr Goers.

I found Dr. Goers, to be very attentive during my consultation. She answered every question I asked and did not talk over my head. She seems to care about what was going on and how to fix it. She struck me as confident but not arrogant. I would not want anyone else to do my surgery.

I met with Dr. Goers and she explained to me the procedure of removing a bad parathyroid gland. two weeks later, I had the surgery and everything went well. I highly recommend Dr. Goers and her staff. They were very efficient and friendly and made me feel at ease. Kimberly Pratt

I was referred by my Heart Doctor to Trudie Goers as one of the best. This may be true but I never found out as her staff would not keep be informed of what was going on and even lied as to why they didn't get back. After having test run and not getting anyone to give me the results and schedule the surgery I called and left a strong voice message which resulted in Dr. Goers calling me and telling me that she was refusing to operator on me. I quest she doesn't care about taking care of humans

Dr. Goers performed an incisional hernia repair, including three additional hernias followed by abdominal muscle repair. My husband and I were very pleased with her expertise in explaining my CT Scan results, diagnosis and surgical recommendations. I appreciated her rapport with me as a patient. I was very happy with my surgical experience, recovery and follow-up with Dr. Goers and her staff. The entire process went as she initially explained.

I recently had to have a left inguinal hernia repair. Dr. Goers was my surgeon and I could not be more pleased with my experience with her as a health professional. She was informative, professional and humble enough to ask to pray with me before the prodedure. That alone gave the the ability to relax and go into the operating room in all confidence. The procedure and my recovery went well and, yesterday, at my followup 4 weeks after the surgery, she released me back to full duty!

If you are looking for a doctor who is compassionate and will answer your questions. Do not see Dr. Goers. If you want a doctor who addresses your need of pain, do not see Dr.Goers. I was treated terrible and the morning of my surgery the pre op nurse told me my orders were different than what Dr.Goers and I had discussed the week before. My abdomen looks abnormal. It has been over 4 months since my surgery and I can not wear a normal pair of pants. I would not let her TOUCH me again. BEWARE!!

Referred to Goers for surgery. Her bedside manner is awful and she proceeded to schedule surgery without ever seeing my chart. A few days prior to surgery, I'm told that my bill needs to be paid in FULL prior to surgery. It would have been nice to know that before now. I've NEVER seen a doc so heartless. When I explained that I could pay the morning of surgery, she responded w/postponing surgery until full payment could be made. Not postponing...CANCELLING my surgery. My intuition was spot on!

Dr. Goers met with me while I was hospitalized for a related condition. I had been to the ER at another hospital twice. My primary care doctor made a call and Dr. Goers met with me. I had surgery the following week. She is professional, yet personable and friendly. She eased my fears. I am so happy to have the hernia repaired. My quality of life is so much better. She and her staff are always friendly, courteous and helpful.

During our consultation, she clearly explained my options, allowed me plenty of time to ask questions, and gave me as much time as i needed to make a decision and call back to book surgery. Surgery went well and had a good experience with Dr. Goers and her staff.

She botched my fundiplication and hernia repair. I have gastroparesis and she insisted it was the right surgery for me when it wasn't. When it came to the surgery review appointment, she was not present. I had to make an appointment to talk to her before the surgery again. They just wanted me to schedule it without the answers I needed. The nurse had given wrong information about how the surgery was being done. I sat for hours waiting to be seen (more than one occasion).
