For David Goff, M.D., one of the most important things a pediatrician can do is to treat the whole child. To him, that means taking the time to truly listen to and answer the questions that parents and patients ask. Developing a strong bond of communication can have a positive effect on the health of a child and the child's family.
Dr. Goff graduated in 1993 from Bowman-Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University. He completed his internship and residency at Texas Children's Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine in Houston in 1996. Dr. Goff also served as neonatology chief resident at Ben Taub Hospital in Houston in 1996 and was chief resident at Texas Children's Hospital and Ben Taub Hospital in 1997. Dr. Goff is board certified in pediatrics.
As a Cook Children's pediatrician, Dr. Goff enjoys helping kids grow up as healthy and developmentally strong as possible. He's very passionate about reading and encourages the kids he sees to read and believes reading is one of the best tools for brain and cognition development.
In addition to his pediatric practice, Dr. Goff also serves as an assistant professor of pediatrics at the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine in Fort Worth.
His favorite things to do in his free time are spending time with his wife and children, as well as reading, running and boating. Dr. Goff is also active in his church.
