Dr. Geetinder Goyal

Dr. Geetinder Goyal is the founder of First Primary Care in Houston, TX. He is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, and Critical Care Medicine. He has practiced in India, New Zealand, The United Kingdom, Uganda, and the U.S., where he has remained for the last 16 years. He attended medical school at the Government Medical College in Chandigarh, India. Following that, Dr. Goyal completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch – Galveston. Dr. Goyal then went on to Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, CT where his fellowship was in Pulmonary Medicine and Critical Care Medicine. Towards the end of his training, he realized that our healthcare system only takes care of the sick, and no one is looking out for a patient's overall health and well-being. So, Dr. Goyal decided to abandon the traditional route and start First Primary Care to finally provide patients with genuine healthcare––not just "sick care." Today, First Primary Care is a leading DPC in Texas and was placed #908 on the 2021 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. He is married to Dr. Le Vo, a practicing Internist at Houston Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. Geetinder and Le have two adorable daughters, Avni, ten, and Saya, six. When he isn't caring for patients, Dr. Goyal enjoys working out, watching sports, traveling, and having great conversations with friends.
