This is the 2nd appointment I’ve made with her, but for a different problem. I specifically scheduled with her, which meant waiting a little longer to be seen, because I liked her so much. She’s wonderful to talk to. I feel like she connects well with her patients. I recommend her & would certainly schedule again with her if I needed to.

This was my daughters third time seeing Dr Goddard over the last 6 weeks, and she has gone to 6 physical therapy sessions. Her leg pain is at the same level now as it has been for three weeks. No clear diagnosis and no return to play schedule yet .

Dr Goddard spent less time with my daughter during the appointment than did the athletic trainer. Dr Goddard recommended my daughter to receive physical therapy.... the first available appointment for a new physical therapy patient is two weeks. If Beacon is too busy to bring on new patients, we should be told that before we see the Dr.

She clearly explained my diagnosis and pointed out the treatment options. She spent a lot of time with me, did not seem hurried or rushed. She was compassionate, obviously very competent, warm and very caring. In explaining the diagnosis, she did so with empathy, and seemed to monitor my reactions to what I was hearing, as it was reflected in her voice tone, her pausing, and eye contact. Great doctor.

She was great! I had previous knee injury and she took a look at it to see if i could get back to playing. She did diagnose with me runners knee, and then gave me a brace and told me to see a specialist for my running. Kind of felt like I was being sold to at the end, but her own diagnosis and visit besides that was very nice and knowledgeable.

I booked my appointment online and printed out the information. When I returned home, I checked my printout as my appointment was in Wilmington, OH but the printed confirmation did not list which location. I thought the appointment was at the Springdale location- not at the Wilmington location. Dr. Goddard and her staff waited until I drove over 45 minutes to Wilminton, OH from the Springdale location. I really appreciated that they waited. I really appreciated it.
