About Dr. Goff

Philosophy of care

The best medical care decisions for children are made when the parents and I have a positive collaboration that brings together all of our areas of expertise. I have a great deal of respect for parents, and I find that they very quickly become experts about their children. What I have to offer is up-to-date medical knowledge and many years of experience. I am happy when parents ask lots of questions and fully participate in this process. My goal is to prevent health problems whenever possible and to give the best possible care when problems arise. One of the most important ways to protect a child’s health is to make sure that they receive all recommended vaccines on time.

Why I entered medicine

Being a pediatrician brings together two of the things I love most: science and children. I originally thought that I would follow in my parents' footsteps and pursue medical research, since both of my parents were neurophysiologists at Yale Medical School. I enjoyed doing research in virology, but found that taking care of patients, especially children, is my first love. Now I leave the new medical discoveries to others, but use my strong science background to deliver the best care I can to children every day.

Community involvement

I am on the board of trustees of United Friends School, which is a preschool through eighth grade school in Quakertown. I support many charities that serve children.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending time with my two daughters, going to concerts at Listen Live Music in Macungie, watching movies while on my treadmill, staying up-to-date on current events, learning Mandarin Chinese (still not very good), and I really do enjoy reading medical journals.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
