Top Notch - Doctor, Surgeon, Person

My words cannot describe my gratitude to Dr. Goicochea for his professionalism, surgical skill, and compassion that he bestowed on me during the entire process. As a doctor and surgeon, he is top notch. As an individual, he is one of a kind and I would recommend him to anyone. At my initial consultation for potential thyroid cancer, Dr. G clearly explained the the procedures from biopsy to surgery to post-surgery recovery and maintenance. I gained immediate confidence with Dr. G and the final result was full thyroid removal. Excellent surgical results with minimal to no scar today.

Great Doctor, Horrible Office Staff!

Dr. G. is an amazing doctor and made me feel very comfortable. His staff, on the other hand are very unprofessional. They wait on you while chowing down on lunch, are horrible at returning calls, requesting information, sending faxes out, etc. Unfortunately, you deal with them far more than you deal with Dr. G.
