Dr. Archana Goyal earned her medical degree at the University of Southern California. She completed her internship and residency in Internal Medicine at UCLA-Olive View Medical Center and earned a master’s in public health, international health at Harvard University. She is board-certified in internal medicine.
Prior to starting her medical studies, she earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science from UC Berkeley.
“As an internist I care for patients age 18 and older,” Goyal says. “I enjoy people and I look forward to building lasting relationships with my patients.
Each patient is unique and comes with different goals and perspectives for their own health, she says.
“I want to create a safe and comforting environment for my patients. I’m known for being thorough in my exams and nurturing to my patients. I involve patients in their care, while providing the appropriate guidance for their symptoms or conditions.”
She has a special interest in preventive care and public health, as well as in complementary approaches to health care.
“I was born in India but moved to the United States at a young age,” she says. “I grew up in Sonoma County and completed most of my education in California. I developed an interest in medicine when I was a teen volunteer at a Santa Rosa hospital.”
