Drs. Mangone, Goebel and Shea honored by Asheville Catholic School

Blue Ridge Region

Three EmergeOrtho: Blue Ridge Region Physicians were honored by Asheville Catholic School at a ceremony at the school on March 16th, 2013.

Dr. Goebel has gone out of his way to explain the procedure prior to surgery. After surgery, he explained the length of recovery time that I should expect. The whole staff has been very professional and caring.

Dr. Goebel was extremely nice and was very upfront and to the point of the treatment options available to me. I would strongly recommend him for people who need to hear things as they are without a lot of unnecessary obstacles. Thank you so much for making my options clear to me.
