Very informative

I am very disappointed with my first visit to see him. He was very dismissive when he realized that I needed to see a different specialist for my issue. His bedside manner needs great improvement to say the least. Due to this visit , I have made an appointment with another North East Orthopedic. I will continue with them at this point.

Dr. Gopal took his time explaining my condition and explained my x-ray while viewing it with him. Treatment orders were initiated and I felt good knowing what mt problem was. Thank you

Very informative, and knowledgable. I very much appreciated his thoughts on the best treatment.

Nov-2020

He pushed surgery. I got two different opinions who said this was ridiculous and unfounded. Very pushy. Poor bedside manner.

Oct-2020

Made me feel more relaxed knowing there were needles involved in my exam. Informative explained why I had hand pain and what he recommended as therapy. Good visit.

Oct-2020

He took the time to read my previous medical records and explain them to me. He also listened to what I had to say and was not quick to say this is an on going issue that needs to be treated with shots and medication.

Oct-2020

Lack of empathy showed when he puts ex- ray up and points to severe spine curvature in my 84 year old husbands back and says,"it can't be fixed." Nothing to be done. Then tells us his wife want's him to spend $85 for a haircut and she doesn't cook either. tells me I'm a good wife. I asked what would he think re pain management. We don't do that here.(abrupt!!) I then asked if PT might help. He then said you can do that if you want. We waited a month to see this man. Pandemic has made it hard for all of us, but if you aren't able to offer treatment recommendations go write a book.
