Dr, Goitz is an excellent doctor and surgeon. I had hand surgery several weeks ago and his work is exceptional! He takes the time to explain the procedure both in the office and before the actual surgery. I cannot say enough good about him and the staff in the surgery center!!!

Dr. Goetz is a excellent Doctor, trust him with my visit's, his care, understanding, (no coment on UPMC) Am Highmark Freedom Blue, do not agree with UPMC's practice of still holding grudge with Highmark, it effect's the Drs. & the patient's. Enough Said, Drs. Great, Wish all envoled the best.
