Very busy practice. Several Doctors assist with routine eye exams but at the end of the appointment you get 5 minutes with Dr. Goodman. If you expect an full exam given by Dr. goodman go elsewhere.

My appt was made through ZocDoc, but somehow it showed up in their system for the wrong day. Fortunately for me, they were able to accommodate me anyway, but you should confirm with their office since it seems their ZocDoc scheduler isn't aligned.

Went in for a lasik consultation. Practically no wait till his assistants started testing me. They were all very professional and really nice. All describing what tests were being performed and asking if I had questions. Saw Dr. Goodman after all the tests, around an hour. He was fantastic, described everything in detail and answered all questions. EXCELLENT bedside manner. Really nice guy. Look forward to actually getting the procedure done!

I didn't spend much time with Dr. Goodman at all, but the rest of the staff was fantastic, thorough, and knowledgeable! The office is a really nice space, too.

It was my initial consultation with Dr. Daniel Goodman. His staff did quite a bit of testing prior to my meeting him. He also performed some tests to check my eye issues and came up with a recommendation that he passed on to my Opthomologist for his approval. I will be seeing my eye doctor in early August and we will discuss his findings/recommendation and what approach we will take to correct the problem.

After waiting over a month for my appointment (including it getting rescheduled directly through ZocDoc without even a call), I hardly got any time with Dr. Goodman himself. I had one of his assistant docs come in to do my eye exam, who was then rushed out for an emergency appointment a few minutes in, and then another assistant doc assigned to do my exam. After another 30 mins of waiting, I finally got to see Dr. Goodman for less than 5 minutes... he was very rushed throughout the appointment as he seemed to have better places to be. He may be good but seems like too much of a chase for a celebrity.

Dr. Goodman is excellent in his specialty, but scheduling an appointment is just awful.I got a call three times from his office staff to reschedule for various reasons. Unless you have very specific corneal problems go to a different doctor.
