I am IMPRESSED!!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Rajiv Goel - Posted on August 9th, 2019
I had my first appointment with Dr. Goel the other day regarding repairing my torn tendon in my thumb. He ended up spending 60 minutes with me! 60!! I don't think any doctor in my lifetime has spent 60 minutes with me! Needless to say he was very informative about what the options were and even took the time to draw me pictures. He was very humble and treated his assistant as if they were peers. He is one of a kind!!

I find Dr. Rajiv Goel to be a gifted surgeon. Back in 2013 I ruptured a tendon in my elbow. He operated and re-attached it with a couple of screws. He did a great job and my elbow is good as new. He explained the whole process to me so it was clear what was going to happen. I would go back to him again.

Dr Goel has treated a knee and collarbone fracture for me and a collarbone fracture for my son in the past year. He has been highly impressive in these ways: Communicating clearly what your condition is and how best to treat it explaining options you may have, listening actively to your questions and concerns, responding to them in a respectful and kind manner, and being reassuring and confident as to your treatment outcome. Additionally, Dr Goel is very personable with a good sense of humor!

I seek to understand the specific impact your condition has on your life and use this as the guiding principle in determining your most effective treatment.
