SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Rushed. Interrupted me. Dismissed my questions. Frankly, she's arrogant and unhelpful, and seemingly unsympathetic to my incurable disease. Seems anxious be finished with encounter. This comment is about Dr. Goyal, not her intern

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Both Dr. Goyal and Dr. Young are excellent doctors overall. I am very pleased with them. I am a clinical pharmacist (pharm. D.) both spoke to me in a very professional manner with regard to my training level.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

I have been to and could have chosen to stay with UCSF or UCLA but I have chosen to stay with Stanford.

Dr. Neelam Goyal & staff provides excellent job.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

I appreciate Dr. Goyal doing my EMG and taking the time to talk about it at the same time. This eliminated a late afternoon appointment I had scheduled and allowed me to begin my trip home- 6 hours north- earlier than planned.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I feel very comfortable in Dr. Goyal's hands.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Very satisfied with the doctor's ability to do her job.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

I'm so glad that I finally came to Stanford. Even if nothing can be done to ease my pain or reverse the nerve damage, I'm confident that I'm receiving the best care and seeing the top doctors, nurses and others. #8. Amazing!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr. Goyal is one of the nicest Doctors I have ever been cared for by. Her attention to detail is impeccable, and you get the feeling that she really cares greatly for you not only as a patient, but as a person. I am extremely glad that I chose the Stanford Neurology Clinic.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Great listening skills.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Goyal was great, highly recommend. We spoke briefly to a genetic counselor who was great about answering questions but both my husband and I felt she seemed a little annoyed about having to come in to talk to us.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Goyal was superb!

Good.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

My Doc did explain. However, there are still questions I have that will be addressed (I am sure). When sitting in the room, you can not possibly think of the questions at hand. I am sure she will answer them when I ask.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Goyal has been professional and thorough throughout my entire experience with Stanford. She was very informative and explained all the different aspect of my care. She was very responsive to all my My Health email questions.

She listened to my concerns on pain management and wishes for non-narcotic management

Excellent service.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Provider was rushed but I did not feel she wanted to listen to my concerns as she has in the past.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Goyal only stated that my nerves & muscles were strong. This I was not given a written report to findings of tests performed by office, except to say - to talk with my general doctor.
