A very attentive doctor & cordial, an excellent professional of health.

July 6, 2020 2:28 PM

This was my 3-month post-heart attack visit and Dr. Goel has always and this visit as well, treated me with nothing but the utmost kindness, understanding and professionalism. I had developed a lactose intolerance due to the switch in meds and he was very concerned and switched me back to my old meds and the intolerance disappeared! He is truly a kind and understanding soul and we are incredibly blessed to have found him sheerly by accident the day of my heart attack.

July 6, 2020 2:28 PM

Dealing with Dr. Goel and his staff is such an easy experience, they are professional, empathetic, understanding and very knowledgable about everything heart and meds. We are so grateful to know if we call, our call is important.

July 6, 2020 1:29 PM

Very good. Visit was for vein mapping so I was with a tech.

July 6, 2020 1:29 PM

Good experience

May 28, 2020 4:59 AM

I was very impressed with Dr. Goel's knowledge of my recent health issues and blood pressure readings from other dr. appointments. He was proactive, stopping one medicine, but advised to send in BP readings for ongoing monitoring.

May 28, 2020 4:59 AM

He demonstrates his expertise in a caring manner for each visit.

May 3, 2020 11:34 AM

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, this was a phone consult, which I really appreciated. As always, Dr. Goel was thorough, listened carefully and encouraged me to contact his office at any time prior to my next check-up should I have questions or concerns. Thank you, Dr. Goel!

April 27, 2020 10:20 AM

This provider was very knowledgeable told me what need to be done & was going to make appointment.

April 12, 2020 12:26 AM

I have had four surgeries in the last three months on my legs. The doctors, nurses and all personell were efficient, kind, caring, knowledgeable and put my needs first. I give them all 5 stars for my treatment. I am now walking almost normally thanks to them. My overall health has improved greatly. Followup checkups will let us know how successful they were. Thank you for such a wonderful crew.

April 4, 2020 5:10 AM

very thorough

April 4, 2020 5:10 AM

good and informative

March 29, 2020 5:40 AM

I'm very pleased to have Dr. Goel as my doctor; my children are also happy that he takes care of me. They tell me he saved my life three years ago I'm soon to be 91 yr. old; live alone with nice children that keep good tabs on me.

March 24, 2020 10:06 PM

Dr. Goel and his entire staff are prime examples of professional, empathetic knowledgable medical experts. Always answers all of our questions in a kind, non-judgemental manner but rather like a caring friend who just wants the best for you at all times. His staff and office are organized, professional and very accurate about returning calls or gathering the information you request. Our last visit was a phone visit due to the health crisis we are going through and we never once felt rushed or dismissed by the DR. but rather that he really was concerned about every detail of my progression since my heart attack.

March 24, 2020 10:06 PM

We thank our lucky stars that Dr, Goel was the on-duty cardiologist when I had my heart attack in February since we have just recently moved to the area and didn't have a local cardiologist yet. He was very attentive during the hospital stay and the follow up by him and his staff has been outstanding, professional and very compassionate. We are so happy to have found him by 'accident'!

March 12, 2020 9:54 AM

Very knowledgeable in his field. Very busy.

March 7, 2020 6:16 AM

He is a great dr.

February 25, 2020 11:24 AM

Went well; good doctor.

February 3, 2020 3:01 PM

Smart and competent. Careful-offered alternatives and explained risks.

February 3, 2020 3:01 PM

The team of 5 knew what to do and got it done with an ultra sound verification two days later that showed it worked as expected.

January 20, 2020 7:06 AM

Dr. Goel is the best.

January 10, 2020 8:50 AM

We discussed my various veins. Did ultrasound & he told me his findings. Discussed thoroughly my options.

January 10, 2020 8:50 AM

Very happy with the dr.

January 8, 2020 4:35 AM

Dr Goel is kind, compassionate and he is straight to the point. he gives full attention and looks you in the eyes when talking. highly recommended.

December 30, 2019 5:47 AM

I think he is great!

December 27, 2019 8:32 AM

Dr. Goel is a cardiologist I normally see once a year. This visit was for pre-surgery approval. His schedule was full but he personally fit me in.

December 27, 2019 8:32 AM

All experiences good, and that I mentioned above. Before Dr. Goel I had the pre-surgery check up with Dr. Dreyer also with Advocate. That appointment went well also.

November 18, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. Goel was very nice, did not rush me, always answered any questions I had, made a very stressful situation better.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Goel listened carefully & made me feel confident in his ability to heal the pain in my leg.

October 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Kind, courteous, professional , knowledgeable. I am always confident that I am getting the best care.

October 13, 2019 7:00 PM

September 11, 2019 7:00 PM

Very pleasant.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

Compassionate doctor, listens and gives constructive input. I have recommended him on several occasions because I was familiar with him from my husband going to him.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

A great experience. Dr. Goel seems genuinely interested in his patients' well-being.

September 2, 2019 7:00 PM

He is the best doctor to handle problems.

September 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Always a good experience with Dr. Goel !!!"

September 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Goel is an amazing doctor, he takes time to explain and engages in conversation which enables me to share my thoughts, concerns and ask questions. I felt like he really does care and I'm not just another patient. he was prepared for our visit. he apologized that he was a little late for our meeting because a prior procedure ran over time. the nurse did inform me. I'm totally okay with it. if I were the prior patient, I'm sure Dr Goel wouid take necessary time for me. he truly cares about his patients. he was great with the procedure, he communicated the results of the procedure timely. Always asks to be sure I I understand and do not have questions or concerns. I had a total of 6 appointments here and every single one was great. the nurses and technicians are the best. thank you for your professionalism

August 5, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Goel is a wonderful doctor.

August 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Goel is awesome. Very personable and knowledgable. You know he cares about your health.

July 31, 2019 7:00 PM

All questions are answered. I don't know why. Every time I come here, my experience is excellence.

July 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I was impressed by the providers knowledge and friendliness. We did not talk about many options yet because this was an initial consult appointment. We have to first do an ultrasound.

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

I like this doctor very much

May 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Goel is great. He makes us feel at ease and explains things well 0 he is very patient, always on time and spends all the time you need, never feel rushed or brushed off.

May 23, 2019 7:00 PM

My previous provider retired and I thought this one would work the same way. This one focused more on the serious problems not cosmetic.

May 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Goel is a very kind, caring and knowledgeable physician.

April 29, 2019 7:00 PM


April 29, 2019 7:00 PM

We had a frank discussion about the pros and cons of the procedure we discussed and WE decided to wait until our next appointment to make a final decision.

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Goel is an outstanding doctor. he makes one feel at ease.

April 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Goil found 90 percent blockage in two of the hart arteries and set up corrective surgery before a hart attack occurred. He has helped me with leg vain problems and other problems by recommending seeing Dr. X at Dryer.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

The front desk/check in people are not friendly and are usually eating when I walk in too. I wish it was easier to get appointments/times that work better with my work schedule.

before I saw Dr Goel I could barely walk. H e performed an angiogram and I can walk as well as any B/K amputee.

May 4, 2018 7:00 PM

I feel very safe with Dr. Goel.

May 1, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Goel had reviewed my history and that is important to me. He is knowledgeable about my needs and conveys information sincerely. He is easy to talk to and I value his expertise and friendly manner.

March 31, 2018 7:00 PM

I was so impressed with the doctor. I gave him time to go over my medical history since he just met me. He questioned if one of my meds I was taking was a high enough dosage and increased the amount for me to take. OH MY GOD!!! What a positive change for me. I am feeling better and can actually do more activities as my heart is no longer racing. He went over the procedure of surgery and what I could expect as a result if I needed surgery. He was easy to talk to and explained things without technical terms which is a plus for me as I have a slight learning disability. I walked out of the office feeling confident I was in the right place and FINALLY going to find out EXACTLY what is wrong with my leg. Thank you Doctor for restoring my faith that I have a different road to take and this problem will be fixed soon.

March 27, 2018 7:00 PM

Very good took his time explained everything for present and upcoming.

March 26, 2018 7:00 PM

Pleasant & helpful experience.

March 3, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Goel has been my cardiologist for 3 years and every visit has been pleasant and informative.

February 12, 2018 6:00 PM

I respect Dr. Goel as a doctor and person. He was not only skilled but very kind.

January 25, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Goel always treats us with the utmost care & respect. He is so kind and gentle. Wish he could be my primary care physician!

January 22, 2018 6:00 PM

I was very pleased with everyone that works at this office

January 22, 2018 6:00 PM
