Dr Goers was very, through in asking questions regarding my esophagus and stomach issues, plus, listening to me regarding my symptoms, which I sincerely, appreciate. She took the time necessary to explain my tests and possible additional tests to diagnose. Information and a prescription will hopefully, result in a relief.

Horrific. Arrogant doctor more interested in keeping up her high volume of surgeries than her patients. Gets defensive and combative when asked questions rather than seeking to understand the issue. Never been treated by a “professional” in such a rude, uncaring way.

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.
