Professional Background

Dr. Gooch is originally from England, but spent most of her childhood growing up in northern New Jersey. She graduated magna cum laude with a BS in Biology from The College of New Jersey in 2007. While there, she also completed minors in both Chemistry and History and was a graduate of the college honors program.

She then attended Georgetown University for medical school, graduating as an MD in 2011. She subsequently was a resident in General Surgery at Stony Brook University Medical Center on Long Island, NY until graduation in 2017. Her training included a sabbatical during the 2013-2014 academic year to pursue clinical research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer in the department of Breast Surgery.

Following surgical residency she completed a one year SSO-accredited fellowship in Breast Surgical Oncology at New York University Langone Medical Center, prior to joining the faculty at the University of Rochester.

Dr. Gooch is board certified in General Surgery.

She currently resides in Pittsford, NY with her husband and two daughters.

URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience. We are now putting this pertinent information at your fingertips by displaying star ratings for our providers along with anonymous patient comments on our website. This will help you make better-informed choices about how and with whom you seek care. Click here to learn more about the surveys used to generate this vital information.
