best doctor we've seen at Children's in 8 years!
it was very good
Dr. Goyal is the BEST doctor I could have asked for. She diagnosed me with my condition 6 years ago and has been a constant and amazing provider and supporter to me since. I can't imagine going through this without her.
Dr. Goyal is an amazing doctor and we thank God every day that we have her to care for our son.
We appreciated the care options Dr Goyal explained to us.
Dr. Goyal is great! My daughter does not like Dr. Goyal to discuss potential procedures (like a colonscopy or MRI) because she doesn't want to think about procedures unless she has definitely has to have one. When I explained this to Dr. Goyal she respected our wishes and told me she would call me on the phone if her test results indicated a procedure was needed.
amazing experience,very empathetic and good bedside manners.
We love Dr. Goyal. She has been with my son since diagnosis of Crohn's Disease and is an amazing physician.
Dr. Goyal is the best doctor I could ever ask for!
One of the best visits we have had staff was helpful and efficient.
