Specialties

Dr. John A Goss Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

One Star

Our oncologist referred us to him after a new spot was discovered on his liver. We called for a full week before someone finally called us back with scheduled appointment. We drove 3 hours one way for appointment only to be told we needed new scans because there was conflicting report from previous oncologist scan. Had new scans took another 2 full weeks before anyone called to let us know how we needed to proceed. Actually I had to get our oncologist involved in getting our results. Another 2 weeks passed and the hospital called to verify our insurance for the upcoming surgery??? No one from doctor called. I had to call dr office only to be told we needed to drive 3 hours the day before for preop bloodwork. Jumped through hoops to get kids and animals taken care of for the week. Made it to Houston received a call at 137 a.m that surgery was canceled. While I knew transplants come before other surgeries the way this whole situation has been handled is frustrating. If your looking for a transplant surgeon he's your man but if you have any other liver issues I'd look elsewhere.

pediatric liver transplant

Dr. Goss Is a wonderful doctor and took such wonderful care of my 4 year daughter when she needed a liver transplant. He has such a warm caring heart. He has continued to take good care of her through our pediatric hematologist. I could not say anything at all negative about him. Even my daughter now 6 thinks he was a super hero that help to save her life.
