Told me there was nothing wrong with me per my MRI. Went on to say he didn't know why I'd ever used a wheelchair. I never have! Brought in nothing, no chart, no computer etc. Obviously had me confused with someone else. Also thought I was 10 yrs younger! I asked if he even looked at MY results as he seemed to have me confused with another patient. Said of course he did and I had no reason for pain, I needed to stretch in the morning and maybe take an ibuprofen. Got my disc and report myself. Bulging discs, one pressing on a nerve, facet joint problems etc. Seeing another Dr. Waste of time and money and treated me like I was making things up.
Dr. Gooch fused my lumbar two years ago this month. I am scheduled for my last visit with him next week. He follows his spine patients for two years. Without the expert work of this surgeon I would not be able to function. Two years out and I feel wonderful. I will never be 100% again at age 74, but I am so grateful to him and his great staff for my good spine health today.
My husband has been a patient close to 2 yrs of Dr Gooch. We have had nothing positive to come from this experience. Diagnosed with cervical disk herniation with no significant treatment. He was given 2 steroidal injections with minimal relief. Visit after visit put off by Dr Gooch. Physical therapy, EMG, and chiropractic care. We had no answer to any of our questions. He always seemed to "pass the buck". Finally when we told him something needed to be done for pain relief he decided my husband had no cervical pain or issues to address. Second opinion was requested and he refused to send a referral to a doctor of our choosing.
