Dr Goeshe is awesome! I had very bad vision and wore contact lenses prior to my cataract surgery/ both eyes. I was so happy I cried when they took the patch off my eye after the first surgery and could see better in my eye each surgery than all of my life! I see 20/25 and 20/40 now and passed my vision test at the Ohio BMV. Dr. Goeshe explained everything before surgery and calmed my fears. I would recommend anyone to him!!

I owe Dr. Goshe and his team my life as I know it today. It would have been very different if they had not carried out such an amazing job of saving my vision with bilateral corneal transplants 5 years ago. My husband died suddenly during this period and everyone was very kind. I told Dr. Goshe I think of him every day because he made such a difference in the way I live today. There were bumps along the way that were managed quite well and this is coming from a former ER nurse who knows good care when it happens and probably worries more than the average patient. Dr. Goshe is a very kind and modest surgeon and I couldn't ask for anything more than to have him on board.

My appointment was for 10:45. I believe I saw Dr. Goshe about 1:30. He did sincerely apologize very nicely and I accepted it. He did not rush, answered all my questions. I did spend a lot of time waiting in the outer waiting area with no explanation. I finally asked if there was a problem. Then when I got into the room where I would see Dr. Goshe, I spent a 45 minutes to an hour with no explanation.
