Why Choose Us?
I was always having congestive heart failure, shortness of breath and did very little activity for fear of having a bad day. If I went down steps to do laundry, I couldn't come back up the steps. Dr. Anil Goel suggested an InSync Maximo defibrillator implant for better qualityu of life. On February 10, 2005, I had the implant done. Today, three years later at the age of 78, I am able to go on short walks, go up and down the steps to do my own laundry, stand on my feet to cook and wake up every day knowing it's going to be a better day.
I am 74 years old. I have had several heart problems over decades. I had my first heart surgery 24 years ago and another in 2000. I have 11 stents in my heart. Three years ago I was referred to Dr. Goel due to fainting spells. He recommended a pacemaker defibrillator to prevent dangerous heart rhythms that were leading to fainting. He performed the procedure in 2004 and everything went just fine. I Know Dr. Goel was the right person to do my surgery. A lot my friends have had this done elsewhere and they have had many problems. In February of 2007 I developed atrial flutter. Dr Goel did an ablation on me and got rid of flutter. This procedure was also a great success. I feel very very good and now have lot of energy. Most of all, I really appreciate Dr Goel’s communication skills and style. He talks in a very simple layman’s language, takes his time because he wants to make sure you understand the procedure, the risks and benefits.
"I have had a heart condition with congestive heart failure for 13 years. Thirteen years ago I had a six-way bypass and a heart device implanted since then. Two years ago I could hardly get out of bed due to weakness, shortness of breath and swelling. I was told there is no hope of improvement in my circumstances. I was referred to Dr. Goel by my cardiologist Dr. Thomas Mathew for consideration of biventricular pacemaker and Dr. Goel suggested upgrading my device to a biventricular defibrillator. He performed this upgrade on me in a very efficient manner without any complications. I feel one thousand times better since I had this procedure by Dr. Goel. I want to let patients with heart conditions know that Dr. Goel is an excellent cardiologist who brought me back to an active and meaningful life out of a desperate situation. I function better now than I ever did."
Almost three years ago I experienced Atrial Fibrillation that put me into Beaumont Hospital for almost a week. At that time I was assigned the doctor on duty and ended up with a pacemaker and a list of drugs. The treatment and the drug regime did nothing to prevent Atrial Fibrillation or improve my general health. During the next year and many tests and procedures, my Atrial Fibrillation continued and got worse, as did my health and attitude. I sought out Dr. Anil K. Goel through a recommendation and by that time I was into congestive heart failure and my heart was functioning about 25 percent of what it should. If I had continued and not sought out Dr. Goel I would have had complete heart failure and I would not be writing this. Within two weeks, Dr. Goel had my drugs adjusted and my Atrial Fibrillation was under control. Within four months, my heart was getting stronger and was almost back to 100 percent. In the nine months of being guided and treated by Dr. Goel my Atrial Fibrillation is almost non-existent; I’ve only had three very short experiences in this time. I find Dr. Goel to be a very concerned, kind and sincere person who is more than willing to take the time to listen to your complaints and concerns. He will sit down with you to discuss the treatment he is suggesting and make sure you understand what he is suggesting to do and when. He is a nice person who is concerned about your well being. His staff members are also concerned people who listen and help you when needed. I believe Dr. Goel saved my life and also gave my life back to me. I have recommended him to other people in similar situations and he also helped them regain their lives. I would recommend Dr. Goel to anyone who is experiencing problems with their heart.
Dr. Anil Goel is a competent, caring and comprehensive cardiologist. His clinical diagnostic capabilities are superb and he takes the time and effort to find the real source of problems and looks to treat those problems. I would highly recommend Dr. Goel to anyone. I came to Dr. Anill Goel when a lot a things were going wrong with my health and my cardiologist had recently retired. I had been diagnosed with Afib and Atrial flutter, was planning to get ablation done to treat the Afib. Dr. Goel performed a comprehensive analysis of my health condition and found out that my Afib was being caused by a leaky heart valve. And I needed a totally different medical treatment for my heart issues. In addition to this, Dr. Goel made number of adjustments to my medicines which probably saved my life. One of my prescription medications had increased my chances of sudden cardiac arrest substantially. Dr. Goel not only found my heart issues, he was the first doctor to identify that I have diabetes The office staff at Dr. Goel’s office has always been very polite and professional. They understand the anxiety and concern that the whole family feels when there is heart related incident. And the office staff responds with compassion and professionalism. Based on my personal experiences, I would highly recommend Dr Goel to anyone.
I am 83 years old and have been on several high blood pressure pills for a long time. Couple of years ago I started having fainting spells. I would suddenly pass out and fall anywhere without any warning and hurt myself. It became so frequent that I became nearly miserable and could hardly leave my house. My daughter who lives with me really had it rough. My Doctors tried everything they could to help me but all failed and I kept on falling and hurting myself. One day, I was brought to Beaumont emergency room after I fainted. Dr. Goel was consulted to see me and give an opinion. He reviewed my history, all the tests I had and my medications. In his opinion, I was fainting due to my blood pressure pills suddenly dropping my blood pressure. I was between rock and the hard place. If I stopped my medications, blood pressure would be very high and if I took them I would pass out. Dr. Goel suggested implantation of a pacemaker proactively and then change my blood pressure medications. I had the pacemaker implanted by Dr. Goel in January 2007 with no problems. I had some up and down days after surgery but what a relief? No more passing out. Instead of 10 pills a day, I only took four now. I wanted to go on vacation to Florida with my daughters few months after the pacemaker. I was so worried about passing out. Everything went well and I didn’t need a wheelchair. It’s been about 18 months since pacemaker and I feel like a new person. I can feel myself getting stronger and stronger. It is a wonderful turnaround in my life that happened to me after I met Dr. Goel. In my opinion Dr. Goel is an excellent cardiologist and rhythm specialist whose knowledge, experience and innovative thinking brought me out of a desperate situation. He is a very compassionate physician who sits down and spends time to answer all my questions.
My wife Diane and I would like to express our thanks to Dr. Goel and each and every one of his caring staff for the excellent medical care I have received for the last six years. I am so very grateful for the excellent skills which I truly feel have given me a "second" chance for a longer, more productive life. I have observed that there are two types of physicians. The first, the surgeon, is a medical technician who repairs or rebuilds the physical parts of the body such as heart valves or broken bones. The relationship between these physicians and their patients is usually short-lived, consisting of a pre-op consultation, the actual surgery and the follow-up appointments over a period of a few weeks. If all goes well, patient and doctor have concluded a mutually positive, medical experience. The second type of physician is the medical care giver and puzzle solver. To be a skilled practitioner of this type of medicine requires years of medical training and experience. Dr. Goel's knowledge, thoughtful insight and innate ability to arrive at the proper diagnosis and treatment, make him a gifted healer. As a patient, I appreciate the "easy-going" manner while talking to my wife and myself. Dr. Goel immediately put both of us at ease. His quiet competence and genuine caring are important qualities since many patients are apprehensive about symptoms that they don't understand. He provides helpful explanations regarding a patient's medical condition and leave the patient with a feeling of reassurance that all that can be done to assist him, will be done. Also, even though he has a very busy schedule, he makes every effort to make a person feel as though they are the only patient he has on that day. That, to me is very important, since he appears to have all the time in the world to respond to my questions and concerns. In short, he humanizes medicine in an era of increasingly, impersonal medical care. Again, thanks to Dr Goel and his staff for the wonderful care.
I was born with an extra electrical pathway in my heart that causes frequent episodes of rapid heartbeat, which was diagnosed as supra-ventricular tachycardia. A cardiologist treated me with a medication called a beta-blocker, which reduced the frequency but did not eliminate the condition. Recently, a severe episode forced me to go into the emergency room at Crittenton Hospital. While there, I went into an almost lethal rhythm and was fortunately shocked out of it. I thank God this occurred while I was in the hospital. Dr. Goel was consulted to give an opinion on my condition. He diagnosed me as having been born with WPW Syndrome, which causes a rapid heartbeat due to a short-circuit in the electrical system of my heart. He offered the options of radio frequency ablation to correct the condition or continued medication with unpredictable risk of recurrence. After extensive discussion with Dr. Goel, I decided to go with the ablation procedure and was subsequently transferred to Beaumont Hospital. Dr. Goel performed an electrophysiological study that localized the pathway to the left side of my heart. After making a pathway puncture to the wall between the upper heart chambers, he successfully cauterized (ablated) the pathway. The procedure went very smoothly and I was up the next day and discharged to go home. I feel better than ever and have not had a single incident of palpitation for three months since my procedure. I have totally discontinued the medication that I had been taking for 25 years for this condition. Further, I am relieved of the psychological burden of an unexpected attack and the risk of it being fatal. I am very pleased with my experience with Dr. Goel. He took time to explain and answer all my questions, which greatly contributed to my confidence in proceeding with the ablation procedure. He is indeed an excellent and very experienced Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist.
