Dr Goel is an amazing pain management doctor. As a professional dancer, I need to make sure that the physicians I work with for my rehab are amazing. Her sense of getting to the root of the issues and confirming diagnosesis so refreshing in a world full of doctors trying to push people in and out of the clinic as soon as possible. I highly recommend Dr Goel - thank you for taking such good care of me.

After reading all the outstanding reviews of this doctor, I am in shock how disappointing the visit was. The staff was unfriendly; after filling out the new patient information and then finally being placed in an exam room, an assistant walkedin three or four times to ask me questions which I had already answered on the new patient form. After waiting one hour and 15 minutes, I was about to leave without being seen. I finally saw the doctor. I was surprised how shabbily dressed she was–holes in her scrubs, old tennis shoes. At first I thought she was a staff member until she introduced herself as Dr. Goel. She then brings up my chart on the computer. She asked me the series questions which I had already answered on the new patient forms and by the assistant. I was told as I checked out, I was told that my prescriptions would be electronically sent to my pharmacy. Three hours later, my pharmacy had still not received the Rx. This is not a clinic I would recommend. Either the other reviews were paid for or I am simply an outlier.

Dr. Goel and her staff are unbelievable. She spent more time with me than most doctors ever would and truly cared about me as a human being. I can’t say enough about her! (P.s. they have a massage chair while you wait for a nurse! Crazy!)
