    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care.

I never had someone spend so much dedicated time with me on a first visit. The doctor took the time to get to know about my full medical history and did the most thorough medical examination I ever had.

I have never had a doctor as thorough as Dr Goliger. He never rushes you, and he is pretty much on time. He can lack bedside manner at times, but I prefer a straight shooter and an excellent doctor to making a friend!
