I will never return to that office. On my second appointment I was there on time and office did not seem to be busy. I was put in a room and given a pile of magazines. The attendant said they were running a little behind. I waited for an entire hour. No one came to check on me. No further explanation. I just left, and did not make another appointment.

The doctor seems competent. The MAs were nice & the x-ray tech was efficient and friendly. The issue is getting the custom orthotics doctor recommended. It took over 8 weeks for me to get the call saying the orthotics were at the office. You can't just go pick them up, you have to have an appointment with the medical assistant so you can have them. It took another 2 weeks for there to be an open appointment with an MA. So for someone in daily pain that can be remedied with a custom orthotic, you'll continue to suffer for months before it gets resolved. Over the counter orthotics are available & I recommend getting them because waiting for the custom fit ones takes way too long. Also, if you are given a referral for physical therapy, you might want to wait until you have orthotics. My PT told me that the orthotics were vital to making progress with the therapy. No sense in paying money and taking time to do PT if the results are minimal until you get orthotics to support your healing.

Dr. Goforth was exceptional, kind and caring with the surgery done to improve my right ankle. He now takes care of my dad's feet and is just as wonderful with my dad. I highly recommend this Dr. to anyone that asks.

My experience with Dr. Goforth was pleasant, and the examination was thorough including ultra sound, X-ray and MRI of my foot. At this point my only problem is that after speaking with someone regarding the results of the MRI confirming the initial diagnoses, no further appointments were scheduled and I haven't been contacted regarding the condition and if there might be options for treatment other than pain management. Overall good experience just wish there was better follow up.
