“I would like to commend Heather who worked very hard to schedule my surgery date. My hope was to have it done early in January, however it looked as if there were no dates available. When Heather realized that I needed it done soon she made the effort to make some calls on my behalf and was able to have me scheduled for my foot surgery by January 3rd. I so appreciate her willingness to go out of her way to help me. She was professional in every way and made a very hectic and stressful day end on a positive note!”

“From the time I walk in the door, without an appointment, I had completed the necessary paperwork, had X-rays, seen Dr. Burnworth who withdrew fluid off my knee, was walking out the building in 35 minutes. I have to say I was the first patient of the day. Live in Sylva area and was going to take over 2 1/2 weeks to get an appointment. Blue Ridge Bone and Joint walk-in clinics do the job.”

“I had been suffering with pains down my legs and had problems standing up straight my quality of life was very compromised. Living with that kind of pain was taking its toll on me. I consulted with several surgeons who wanted to do some major back surgery to alleviate this pain. Dr. Goebel’s philosophy is that less is always better. He was confident that a simple laminectomy on L3-4 would solve my problem. He operated on me and it was nothing short of a miracle! I was in so much pain my wife had to wheel me in. I walked out pain free and I get play golf in 6 weeks!! He is a great surgeon and I am truly blessed to have chosen Dr. Goebel. He is not only a great surgeon but he is a great guy. He took his time with my wife and I and explained everything to us to help us feel comfortable. He was patient and responsive on every visit we had with him. He came out of surgery and talked personally to my wife and came to see me too. We can’t say enough about how absolutely pleased we are that we chose Dr. Goebel. I got my life back thanks to Dr. Goebel!”
