Good doctor . Thorough examination, very professional . Had one surgical procedure with him and the results were outstanding . Preparing to have another surgical procedure with Dr. Goss . The only problem that I have with Dr. Goss is his bedside manner is not real personable but then, I'm not seeing him on a social visit .

Great, Caring, Informative. A terribly long appt wait when you get the building. Three different levels of waiting rooms before you get see him. About an hour before the first move to the second room about a 30 minutes wait to the next seat in the hallway. Then you get to an exam room.

Don't waste your time

I waited THREE hours in this office to see this man. He walked in the room, tapped me on the knees, and then tried to walk out. He didn't even apologize for taking half of a day to get to my room. Very arrogant, unwilling to listen or help. He never looked at me in the face. I wasted a WHOLE lot of time and money. I would rank him up there as one of the worse. Never ever would I recommend anyone to see him. Choose your doctors wisely!!!

Best orthopedic in my opinion

I was in a very bad condition...I was shot in my leg. He treated me for years of recovery operation after operation . He came and talked to me while I was in the hospital and even told me that his family and him prayed for me. That made me feel like it wasn't just a job to him, but he cared. I am now 43 years old able to walk pretty good for my injury. He took the time to spend years of corrective surgeries for my bones to be almost straight now. I was 22 when I was injured. Other doctors are often amazed at his work on my leg. The only problem I had along time ago he had so many patients it took awhile to be seen. He is in a new office now, and I am going to have to go see him again for problems with my other leg- not the one he worked on. I know he can get this one straighten out too. He's #1 in my book. After he did such a good job with me- my brother-in-law went to him with back trouble. Other doctors wanted to operate. Dr. Goss didn't. He is back working now, without surgery.
