Specialties

Dr. Philip J Goushaw has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Great doc, terrible office

Dr. Goushaw himself is knowledgable, caring and spends plenty of time, explaining everything clearly and answering questions (in straight English, not medical-speak). Dealing with his office, however, is a totally different experience. It takes several days to get a call back from a nurse, lab tests aren't passed on to him in a timely manner, and it's impossible to talk to the doctor himself without making an appointment.

Dr. Goushaw is a fantastic doctor. He's highly knowledgeable, caring, takes lots of time with his patients, and is very kind. Occasionally, his office gets backed up with waiting patients, but generally my wait times are short. He has a wonderful physician's assistant and his support staff, overall, is very attentive.
