Dr. Andre H. Goy's Ratings
Dr Goy is worth the wait. He saved my life. At the age of 41 I was diagnosed with Stage IV NH Lymphoma with bone marrow involvement. My local oncologist was not hopeful. I saw Dr Goy and he told he that we would be aggressive and that it would not be easy but he could treat me. I started R-CHOP that very day. The nurses in the infusion suite are the best. Three years later I am cancer free and healthier than ever. I owe it all to Dr Goy and his first rate staff.
Dr. Goy lied to my family by insisting my sister was going to be OK and he was going to save her. He never visited her in the hospital while under his care and treatment, and she died. While in intensive care, intebated and dying, he insisted she get another treatment. That was just for him to make more money. Please DO NOT go to this doctor!!!
I have been in treatment for close to three years. While you might have to wait a while in the waiting room for Dr Goy, it is well worth it. You get top notch medical care ,with confidence without arrogance
I had Dr Andre Goy as my doctor at MD Anderson in Houston, TX back in 2003. I had Lymphoma Burketts and doctors locally not giving me a fair shot to live. My choice was 4 months inpatient chemo with Dr Goy or 1 year and 1/2 locally. Dr Goy, just was very positive when other doctors were not, so I went with him. Still remember him saying I could wear a yankee cap (in Houston Astro Country no way), walk in hospital, and he could but my cancer in remission. I started chemo in June 2003 and ended Aug 2003. 10 years later I am still here when a lot of doctors said my chances were not good. Guess Dr Goy showed them. He kind of seems like he speaks fast, but will slow down for you if you do not understand. My local oncologist now uses the treatment he did on some patients now which is a great testament to what he has accomplished. He does have a good bedside manner for a doctor and treats you like a human being not a number. Been in remission for 10 years now thanks to Dr Goy.
After the normallong wait, Goy blew into the room like awhirl wind.We could barely understand his rapid fire heavily accented english.He interuppted our consultation 3 or 4 times by bustling out of the room. The main concern of the staff seemed focused on getting me to sign a release form granting them rights to my biopsy sample. My general impression was of a guy who was all about the conferences, the seminars,his Tumor Bank, cultivating contacts with wealthy patients. Stay away.
This Doctor saved my father's life. There is a special place in Heaven for him and all of the good people at HUMC. Aside from being one of the most knowledgeable hematologist-oncologists in the world, he is one of the most thoroughly decent, caring individuals I have ever met. Thank God that he has come to the United State to help people.
Ditto to everything everyone has said on this blog. Prior to seeing Dr. Goy, I had been to Cornell/Weill, Sloane Kettering and Roosevelt: he is by far THE BEST, both medically and emotionally. Go Dr. Goy - 5.5 years and going and I had been told that I would die without a bone marrow transplant. 4 months of chemo with Dr. Goy and I was "treated". XOXO, Dr. Goy!!!
Waiting 3-4 hours to be seen. Arrogant demeanor when working with Oncologists at other cancer institutions. Unwillingness to listen to the input from top rated Cancer Institutions/Oncology experts even when a possible benefit to the patient.
I had Doctor Andre Goy as my doctor at MD Anderson in Houston, TX for my oncologist to treat me for Lymphoma Burketts in 2003. Other doctors their treatment would have took way longer. 1st time I met him he said put on a Yankee's cap and walk I will treat you. Didn't understand the Yankees cap in Houston, TX, but he was probably one of the best doctors I met and treated me in 3 months. Has good bed side manner and cares for his patients which some doctors lack. Some doctors though his treatment was harsh and now yesterday I found out his treatment was used to help treat another patient locally where they didn't have to go to MD Anderson. I say that alone shows Dr Goy very dedicated to his work and a great doctor.
