After finishing at Virginia Tech, he transferred to the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg, WV for his medical education. In 2000, he transferred to East Tennessee State University to complete training in Internal Medicine. He served as Chief Resident in 2003 at the Holston Valley Medical Center in Kingsport, TN. After completing residency, Dr. Goad and his family moved to Galax, VA to join Carilion Medical Group. He worked in a “traditional” Internal Medicine role serving patients in the office, hospital, and nursing homes.

He is a Certified Medical Director through the American Medical Director’s Association and serves as Medical Director for multiple facilities as well as Hospice and Home Health Agencies.
