The resident he had with him I would never wish to see again. When he came in before Dr. Goad, he seemed very upset to the point almost rude that I had been following Dr. Goad's advice for the past 3 years of during the summer we give more breaks from his braces. Almost to the point I was ready to walk out.

The care provider we were seen by was super friendly and patient with my terribly afraid/shy child. He did everything he could to make her laugh and be comfortable around him and it worked. His comfort allowed for my child to let him see/trim the skin in her toe nails. Listened closely to all my concerns and gave me answers in ways that I would understand.

Dr. Goad is a great doctor. He is not only very experienced and knowledgeable, but he took the extra time my child needed to be thorough. He answered all of my child's questions even when it was not related to the reasons we were there. He spent the time we needed to understand what the issues and how to address them. I am very thankful we found Dr. Goad!!
