Dr. H. Gooi's Ratings
Dr. Gooi is a marvelous Dr. He is very compassionate and makes sure that I get seen by a specialist if he feels I need one. He always takes the time to listen to me and has a very good bedside manner. He is only one person and can only see sop many patients. He is a thoughtful man who doesn't hesitate to tell you how it is. It's unfortunate that there aren't more Dr.'s like Dr Gooi. Jeanette is fabulous and is a great asset to Westwood clinic. They always try and get you in as soon as possible. Thanks Dr Gooi and staff too bad there weren't more Dr's like you out there.
front desk manager should learn some manners, she is rude and talks down to people, has done this for so many years that I am surprised that j. still works there. the desk and appointments are worst now then ever something is very wrong there.
I have been a patient of Dr. Gooi's for decades. He was a good doctor in the early years, but he has now jumped on the profit bandwagon and the level of care/accessibility reflects that. He is rude, dismissive, and has no interest in listening to a description of concerns. To book a physical exam with him now takes a year in advance. To book a simple appointment with him as I just found out today will take until March 2015. His staff are no better.
I have never managed to get in to see him within 20 minutes of my appointment time - and it is usually much later than that. This morning I had the first appointment of the morning, 8:00AM. Knowing how the clinic works, I got there at 7:30 and lined up outside in the cold, so I was the first one in line to see a doctor. Got into an exam room at 8:05, and didn't actually see Gooi until 8:35. At 8:30 I poked my head out the door of the room and asked why he was late, and was rudely told "He will get to you when he gets to you". Now to find a new doctor.
Was actually a patient of another doctor at this clinic who i didn't like and a week after i gave birth to my daughter i was having trouble breathing and was wheezing really bad, i figured it was just my asthma so went to the walk in clinic to get a new inhaler and as dr. gooi always does he asked more questions instead of looking at the obvious, didn't like what he heard so he sent me directly back to a hospital with a note to get me in fast, lucky he did as i had fluid in my lungs due to a rare postpartum heart condition. Saved my life!!! Not only that, he was kind enough to take my husband and I as regular patients as my husband did not have a family doctor. A++ doctor.
Dr. Gooi was a friendly doctor, who always makes time, and has a great manner about him. He may not be the most knowledgeable, but he always follows up on questions or concerns. He helped detect my wifes cancer early and possibly saved her life. My family will continue to see Dr. Gooi until he retires.
Been our families doc for years and our childrens for years as well. I have finally found a new doctor for my family. I sure can say the experience, manner and knowledge of my new doctor is miles ahead of Dr. Gooi. You probably get sick just waiting in that run down westwood clinic or sitting on those stairs, very unacceptable. If you want to become addicted to painkillers and take the wrong medicine, he is your man. He is a good person who has lost his ways of compassion and practicing good medicine. I would have liked to continue to see him, but it was wise to make the switch and sure glad I did.
My family has seen Dr. Gooi for many years.. .my grandparents found him to be a very knowledgable and kind man, however, if you are under the age of 50 he seems to think that everything is a lactose intolerance problem or a thyroid problem, neither of which require any treatment but to 'avoid cheese'. I had had several medical problems for which I had asked for referrals and received none, which have since been diagnosed & treated by another doctor. If you want a quick sick note or prescription refill, he's great. Any more complicated matters, perhaps you'd do better with another physician.
I have been a patient of Dr. Gooi's for 20 years and have found him to be very kind, helpful, considerate, and a good listener. He does not hestitate to send me to a specialist, if needed.He was extremely compassionate when my parents passed away. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else. Now, if they could just repaint that terrible colour in the waiting room!!!
Are all of you people who give this guy the same rating as me seeing the same DR Gooi. He was abrasive and dismissive. My regular doctor was on extended sick leave, so I saw Dr Gooi to get the results of an abdominal ultrasound. He said that I should get my gallbladder out. When I started asking him questions (as he was trying to walk out the door), he told me that he wasn't my doctor and "was just filling in". Thanks DR GOOI - tell me I need surgery, but refuse to answer my questions. Meanwhile my regular doctor is on extended sick leave. Don't you have any professional ethics. You are paid to provide a service. If this were privatized health care, you would not have much of a patient base with your cavalier attitude. I have since found better doctors at the Lakewood medical clinic. It is a half hour drive, but is worth it. The westwood clinic is a dingy, run down building. Only Dr. Sellagy is worth seeing if you are there for walk in.
