About Me

As a general internist, I work as a primary care doctor. What does that mean? I like to think of it as the doctor who knows you best, and the first one that you turn to with your health concerns. One of the great things about being a primary care physician is the long-term relationships that are formed with patients—and in many cases, their families, too. This really allows me to work with patients to meet their individualized health care goals in the larger context of who they are as a person and with respect to some of the personal challenges that they face in their daily lives.

Practicing general internal medicine allows me to provide a wide breadth of care for patients across different specialties. This ranges from preventive health care (diet, exercise, cancer screening, vaccinations) to acute illness to management of long-term medical conditions such as diabetes. I love the intellectual challenge that this provides.

I am most passionate about educating the future doctors that are training at Ohio State, and it is quite likely that you may meet some of them when you come to see me. I also devote two months per year to working as the attending physician on some of the OSUWMC’s hospital teaching services and spend one day per week supervising the Internal Medicine Resident Clinic.

I’m proud to be a United States Air Force veteran.

Anxious to be of assistance

Could be more compassionate toward older people. Could suggest a doctor that specializes in my problems but that could because he doesn't know what's causing them.

I've gone to Stoneridge for many many years. This situation was to me of a semi-urgent nature. my regular doctor was not available. Dr Goist had an opening the same morning of my call, which I appreciated. I hadn't met him before but I was not disappointed. He gave me a good clear explanation of my issue and what to expect over the next couple of weeks. he was very respectful to me. I left there relieved and confident with what he explained to me.
