"Doc Gothard is quite good. Listens well and is very interactive. HIGHLY recommended"
"Great doctor! My physicals are covered, but I think I paid about 90.00 for an illness visit. I have been seeing Dr. Gothard for some time, and he has become quite popular. Since there are so many people trying to get in to see him, your appointments usually run late. Office staff is great, but there have been a few exceptions. This can happen anywhere, though."
"My husband told me about Dr Gothard which he's been using forever. Everyone is wonderful. The staff will try there best accomadate new patients which is hard to find now a days... the doctors are very knowledgeable, friendly and thoughtful to your feelings.You will have to check them out yourselves. Thank You Everybody."
"Every visit to Dr Gothard's office has been pleasant. He knows your family. When I needed a hernia operation, he recommended a good specialist. My daughter has been battling cancer, and he called her directly to see how she was doing. That is what I call true care."
"Dr. Gothard is nothing short of AMAZING! My family and I have been using Dr. Gothard for just over 3 years (since moving from Chicago) and have never looked back. He is patient, caring and spot on with his diagnosis. I personally don't like taking meds - and he supports that. My husband on the other hand wants whatever will help him feel better quickest - and Dr. Gothard supports that. We love that he is so supportive of both - he does tell us the pros/cons of each and together we make a decision. Lastly - the technology in this office is wonderful. Blood results are emailed to me within 24/48 hours, prescriptions are faxed to my pharmacy and ready for pick-up by the time I can get there from the doctor's office. I can also email Dr. Gothard directly and typically hear back from him within an hour. You can't beat that. I am a HUGE Dr. Gothard fan!"
