The staff were extremely unorganized. They put someone else’s paperwork in my chart then couldn’t find mine.

Love her!! Great spirit and so sweet. Super comforting during my first surgery. She asked if she could pray for me, so I knew I was in good hands.

I had two small hernias, ventral and umbilical. They were repaired open method via one incision. It has been almost 4 weeks post-op and I am doing great! Dr. Trudy Goers was professional from the start and more personal at pre-op. I highly recommend her.

Called for an appointment for surgery consult after ER visit for gallstones. Dr. Goers is smart, knowledgeable and explains procedures in an intelligent and understandable way. Very please to be given her name by a friend and I will definately pass her name along to others myself if I am asked. She performed surgery promptly and did a great job. She prayed before surgery at my bedside. A prefers surgeon being humble, religious, smart and highly competent in her profession. If I need surfer again I will return to Dr Goers.

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.

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 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
