  • Dr McGoldrick's office staff and medical personnel are all of the utmost and highest of standards. I have had exceptionally good care from this team and I'm 100% satisfied with everybody involved in my recovery from a shoulder injury. His physician's assistant is nothing but a stellar person as well as himself. It's not often that you come across such a dynamic inspiring and positive team when recovering from traumatic injuries. I thank them all for they all played a significant role in the recovery from a traumatic injury. Thank you to all at Providence Eureka Orthopedic Surgeons! [name]
    Very friendly and polite
    This care provider is excellent. Getting the MRI was difficult, but not because of this provider
    Excellent experience
    He took time to answer my questions, and gave me time to write them down. He showed me my xrays, and made it really clear what the extent of the problem was.

    My primary goal is to return people back to their prior active lifestyles before their injury or disease, whether that is through non-operative management, repair or reconstruction, or in some cases, replacement of the injured joint. I evaluate all orthopedic injuries (except spine), but my area of advanced training lies in shoulder and elbow surgery, including shoulder and elbow arthroplasty. I trained under Dr. Matsen at the University of Washington, where I remain on staff for continuing research on shoulder and elbow disorders.

    When I am not seeing patients, I enjoy fishing, mountain biking and hiking with my family.
