Dr. Goel was my pulmonologist in Lakeland, FL. He was such a kind human, and excellent doctor. I am so very sad tonight. RIP Dr. Goel🙏🏻

I first met Nishant in my first year of medical school 15 years ago. I was drawn to his great sense of humor, but more importantly how much he truly cared of others. When my father had a serious illness in my first year of medical school, I could see how much it impacted him, his concern for myself and the well being of my family, I knew that Nishant was different. He cared for others deeply and the joys and sorrows that other individuals faced impacted him very personally.

We went through the challenges and stressors of medical school with a shared sense of humor, but Nishant was always so dedicated in his work. We volunteered in community clinics for the underserved in Camden, NJ and I knew then that he would be a tremendous physician as I could see how much he cared for others and the dedication to his patients he had. He inspired me to be a better doctor.

He was my best friend, and I will celebrate the wonderful memories of him. From reciting favorite movie lines (My Cousin Vinny) to watching sports, or even debating politics/international affairs ( which he always dominated with his wit, and command of subject matter, and celebrating milestones of our young children, he will be truly missed.

Nishant loved his wife, Priya, and his young daughters, Ashna and Anya. He also cared so deeply about his parents and his sister, Kriti who he was very protective of.

He also was impacted deeply with the suffering of his patients, and we would frequently reflect how it would impact him very personally.

In life, you are lucky to have a friend who you love so much that you consider them more like family. For me, I was lucky to have that friendship, and brotherhood in Nishant. I will always celebrate my wonderful memories of him with his friends and family.

I was a patient of Dr Goel for a short period of time. I met him when I was admitted to the ICU for my very rare lung disease. He didn’t have to asked to many questions because he knew exactly what I had. For me he was as rare as my disease. He had a full treatment plan in place by my first office visit. He was very understanding and knew how to explain every step. I’m am so sorry I will not get to benefit from his knowledge and compassion. May he Rest In Peace. May his family find comfort in such a hard time. He was a beautiful asset to this world.

I am very sad to hear the news about Dr. Goel. I was a patient of his after I was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolism's, two weeks after having my baby. He was so compassionate. In a time of my life where I was scared to death and lucky to be alive he made me feel like I was going to be okay. At my appointments with him he would talk about his little girl and his wife. You could tell he loved them so much. At my last appointment he told me his wife was pregnant with another little girl and you could tell he was so excited. I have five children and we talked about being a parent and how you want the best for your children. In a time of my life that was life changing because I found out I have a blood clotting disorder he made me feel like I would still be okay. He was a great Doctor! He took time to talk to you and explain things. He was the type of doctor that was there for the patient and not just the money. My prayers go out to his wife and little girls in this difficult time.

It's hard to pick one memory to share so I'll go with my first one of Nishant. It was a beautiful spring day in DC and the Cherry Blossoms were out in full bloom. As I walked by them, I got distracted by a young couple in the distance. I thought to myself, 'What a cute couple, they are clearly so in love.' As I walked on and got closer, I recognized Priya and met Nishant, who were on their first or second date. From the moment I met Nishant I knew just how awesome he and Priya were together. I feel lucky to have known him and will keep his memory alive by sharing my stories of him with his beautiful girls.
(I wish I had a photograph from that day, instead I'll share one taken at a wedding we attended.)

I am so disheartened to hear this sad news. When I first came to Temple as a pulmonary/critical care fellow Nishant was there for me. He helped guide me in the beginning and helped pick me up during my early struggles. He bestowed confidence and faith in me at that time and helped me improve ao I could be where I am today. He was a wonderful physician but better friend. I send my condolences to his family and friends.

Nishant was a beautiful human being, I am so saddened to hear about his passing. He was such a great and caring colleague and took excellent care of our shared patients. I’ll always admire his positive attitude and how helped me out. May God Bless his family and provide them some consolation during this terribly difficult time. The world has lost a great soul and brave human being who lived to take care of others. May his spirit live on forever.

My heart is heavy. Nishant was a residency colleague turned Temple family. He was caring, witty, smart and he listened with his eyes. He was a fierce advocate of good patient care and the happiness of his friends. Our bonds created in the trenches of residency are never broken and I pray I can carry his legacy of love and friendship with me.
