Trusting and thorough.
Great doctor and visit
Dr. Goodman and his staff were professional, amicable, quick and efficient. I booked my visit 3 hours before on ZocDoc and was seen within 15 minutes of arriving.
The visit was very insightful and helpful. Dr. Goodman helped me get on a helpful plan for better health.
Great visit and learned a lot about the extent of my allergies. Very knowledgeable doctor.
Dr. Goodman is a really nice guy and a great doctor! He takes his time with me whenever I visit him and listens to what I have to say. Unlike other doctors he will actually talk to you about different treatment options available and what he thinks would be the best fit for you. I highly recommend Dr. Goodman to anyone looking for a new primary care doctor or even for just an illness visit!
It was great I'll be back again
This was my first visit to Dr Goodman's office. I found him to be very knowledgeable and thorough and he helped me well. I would definitely go here again.
Upon arriving at the office and after I began filling out paperwork I was told that they do not take my insurance.
Me & my husband have him as our primary care physician for 5yrs. He's good, professional, dependable, and easy to reach.
My visit with Dr. Goodman is always great! He is very professional and knows what he's talking about. He takes his time with you and doesn't rush your visit like most doctors do. I highly recommend going to Dr. Goodman if you need to see a physician.
GREAT MAN VERY HELPFUL, ALWAYS SMILING AND HE LISTENED TO WHAT I HAD TO SAY!!!
Dr.Goodman is a very patient, thorough, and kind Doctor. He took the time to listen to my problems/concerns, providing some keen insight, which is helping with me feel so much better. It is so hard to find caring services in such a busy world, but now I know it still can exist...
Horrible! Felt rushed assistant took my weight sat me down in the room said doctor was going to take my blood pressure when he walked in the room because theirs was out of battery, doctor entered the room not one finger on me. Was not finished said we're done here very poor service coming from him.
Dr. Goodman is very knowledgeable and is willing to answer questions. Treatment is prompt and the office staff is very nice. i would highly recommend Dr. Goodman.
I value Dr. Goodman's thoroughness and his ability to connect with me when he explains the diagnosis. Very practical no nonsense Doctor that I appreciate. The office personnel are excellent as well.
Short wait, smart dr who cares about his patients and their well being.
I liked Dr. Goodman. He was very professional and discussed my concerns with me. He was very accommodating. My appt did feel a little rushed but it was a first visit when I was not feeling well and not an annual check up.
Great doctor, worth the wait. He answers everything thoroughly and is very passionate towards his patients.
He is a great doctor!
I had a tough time with Dr. Goodman's bedside manner. He did not make me feel very welcome in his clinic, and I while he answered my questions he did so very briefly and without offering a good explanation for his treatment recommendations. I trust my doctors implicitly, so it's frustrating to have one of them feel very uncaring.
I had a great experience, he knew his stuff. So he was really on point.
Dr Goodman is very thorough. His nurse Lorraine and assistant Sonja are very professional and very helpful. It is always a pleasant experience.
Dr. Goodman wants his patients to be satisfied and is willing to work with you on any and all areas related to your health. Dr. Goodman is proactive and believes in preventative health care as well. Highly recommend him.
Great doctor! Very thorough and comprehensive. Doesn't try to rush in and out like most doctors. Rather, he really takes the time to figure out what the problem is and clearly outlines what the treatment options are. Highly recommended!
It went fine. His staff as well as Dr. Goodman are very nice and helpful.
Easy to talk to and listens well. Genuinely cares and makes you feel comfortable.
Really like Dr. Goodman. He treats exactly what the problem is and is just comfortable and easy to talk to.
Great visit, compassionate doctor, easy to communicate with
I have been with Dr Goodman for little over a year. I highly recommend him. He is consistently attentive, patient, and seems knowledgeable in medicine. Very personable and easy to communicate with. Five stars!
Rushed through the exam. He didn't even say hello or introduce himself when he entered the room. It seemed like he had more important things to do and I was not high on his priority list. Nice man, but not very personable.
I was very pleased and I am very particular. I left my other Doctor because I did not like him at all. He was a nice person but not a good Doctor for my personality. I like someone who is up on things and very to the point. Dr. Goodman is just that. His staff were very professional as well. Time will tell! My appointment was 7/27/15.
Dr. Goodman has done many great things to improve my quality of living. True Story.
I generally do not rate anybody. But Dr. Goodman is a good doctor, his staff are courteous and professional. Appointments are scheduled with ease and you do not wait except for a few minutes. He takes care of all your needs and makes sure you do not leave the office with any worry.
Dr. Goodman is personable, professional, and extremely thorough. I hadn't had a primary doctor in years but over the last few years I have changed that because I'm quite comfortable with him.
Easy to communicate with. Friendly office staff.
He took the time to listen to the symptoms I was telling him. He assessed and then ordered blood work. He was very professional and had a confident sureness that put me at ease.
Good doctor who seems to be knowledgeable in medicine.
I had my first visit with Dr. Goodman this week and I sould recommend him to any family or friends. He was thorough and thoughtful. The staff were very efficient and nice. I am going to keep him ss my primary doctor.

Dr.Goodman, was friendly, and the office staff as all and efficient
Very professional. Receptionist answered all my questions and was very nice. He also took care of my records being transferred over from my previous doctor. 5 stars!
Thank you Dr. Goodman for taking into consideration my major concern while at your office.
Dr Goodman really cares about you and your health. He understands what you are going through and truly wants to help. Dr Goodman is the best internal medicine physician I have seen and this is coming from someone in the Healthcare field.
I was very please with Dr. Goodman and his staff.
New to area and needed a primary doctor. I saw Dr. Goodman today and have no complaints. The receptionist was friendly and I was seen within 5 minutes upon arrival. Dr. Goodman was very professional, attentive, listened to me thoroughly, and asked a lot of questions. I had to have blood taken at the office and the nurse who took my blood was neat and clean, used gloves (sadly I've been to places where nurses didn't wear gloves while taking blood - very unsettling) and had a very soft touch, I barely felt the needle. My first experience was a very good one and I intend on making Dr. Goodman my primary physician.
Excellent experience, DR. goodman and his staff were very friendly and proficient.
I was pleased with the entire visit from the beginning. The doctor was informative and thorough about my needs and questions. It was a very good visit I would have no problem recommending the doctor to any of my.
Extremely professional. Had an amazing experience. I finally found a primary care doctor that I have trust in, can talk freely to, foes not judge, and who genuinely cares about my well being!
Dr Paul was very friendly and welcoming. Very thorough and listened to my concerns. If I waited 10 minutes that was it. Staff was also very polite, and respectful. The phlebotomist was very good, 1 stick and no bruising! :) Will be using as my Dr from now on- Great guy, highly recommended.
I felt rather rushed throughout both appointments that I had with him. The second time, I couldn't hear out of my ears, the doctor "cleaned" it but I ended up having to go to a walk in clinic the next day so they could finish. Dr. Goodman didn't even finish the job when my ear canal was completely clogged. He can be also kind Of rude
this was my first visit to Dr Goodman. he did an extremely thorough physical and then spent at least 20 minutes addressing all my concerns. I was very comfortable with him and felt that he was very knowledgeable. the only downside was that I didn't feel the office was as clean as it should have been
What other doctor can you book an appointment online with ten hours notice only, see the doctor later that same day, wait for only five minutes, and be out of the office within 20 minutes correctly diagnosed with prescriptions waiting at the local cvs? None I knew... Till I started going to Dr Goodman . Love that guy!
Arrogant, a little rude, this Dr. seemed a bit uncaring to me. Also: dirty office, old I don't mind but not kept clean as a medical office and should feel sanitary. It also seemed like a business to this Dr. and tried to schedule another visit for something he soul've looked at while I was there the first time. I did not go back since it was not a cordial office visit with a Dr. who you can get comfortable with and like to go back to. Never again Paul. He could stand to lose a few pounds also. Set an example.
It was great very informative
He is a great doctor, thorough and makes you feel very comfortable.
He was not in a hurry as so many Doctors are these days. He patiently answered all my questions.
very caring and explains things well!
He was courteous and inquisitive.
Fantastic bedside manner, quickly taken and didn't have to wait too long in the waiting room, and thoroughly responsive to my questions and condition any time I've had a visit
Dr. Goodman was extremely professional. Spent quality time with me, unlike other doctors. He is thorough with his exam, answering all my questions and put me at ease. His office is clean and his staff is friendly and responsive. He will be my internist going forward. I highly recommend him!
Awesome visit, thorough and got to the bottom of the problem. Staff was friendly and the office was clean and organized
Dr. Goodman was very patient and understanding. I feel he really listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. He is a very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend Dr. Goodman without reservation.
His nurse drew my blood without washing or sanitizing her hands and without gloves on. When my wife asked her to put gloves on, she replied that they get in the way. Yuk...
Patient and knowledgeball. Very professional. Highly recomend.
I've seen Dr. Goodman twice and have been very impressed by his attentiveness and his ability to set me at ease. He was both friendly and professional and I immediately felt comfortable discussing my issues with him, to which he listened carefully and made thoughtful comments and inquiries. As much as I like Dr. Goodman, I must admit that I am quite unimpressed with his office assistant. She was unfriendly and spoke so unclearly that I had to ask her to repeat things several times. She also entered incorrect information in my chart and had a very difficult time drawing my blood, which has always been an easy procedure at every other doctor's office I've been to. Despite the lackluster office support, I will continue to go to Dr. Goodman and would recommend him to anyone else. He is worth putting up with his assistant!
very professional & clean.
He's an excellent doctor. Very thorough and very nice. I felt comfortable with him and if he prescribes medication he tries to find the best one for you and tells you if there are any side effects. The girl that works in his office is excellent also. He also accepts many insurance plans.
Excellent professional MD. Very courteous, attentive, listen's closely to concerns/issues. Very professional.
Nice person, very attentive doctor.
Dr. Goodman is excellent. I go in for my visit with notes and he takes the time to listen to my concerns, make suggestions, allows me the time to make notes of his suggestions and if required, try new medications. Very proactive. Will continue to see Dr. Goodman as my Primary.
Excellent first time visit. Dr. Goodman is clear, concise, and listens before he speaks. He cares about my health. Office staff is very pleasant and office is run very efficiently and very responsive to patient calls.. I've interacted with Doctors on a professional level for 25+ years and Dr. Goodman is excellent. I will continue to use Dr. Goodman as my Primary Physician.
Visit was great and thorough. Great interaction with Dr. Goodman. My RXs were the only thing not sent to Walgreens pharmacy. I will visit Dr. Goodman on a regular basis. Joseph Bomba
Went to Dr Goodman for the first time. He was amazing. Very knowledgeable, took time to listen and explain everything. He will be my new primary care doctor.
He has an excellent bedside manner. He seems to really care about the patient. He gives the patient adequate time to get to the bottom of the problem
Thorough and professional. I will keep seeing him.
Dr. Goodman has been my doctor for about a year and he's the best I've ever met. Knows his stuff, responsive, easy to talk to and therefore easy to be honest with during an office visit. Never a long wait either--by the time I pick a magazine out, it's time to see him. And his staff is friendly too. Highly recommend.
He was very professional and thorough. Very good bedside manner.
Though quick to interject his opinion while I was voicing my concerns, ultimately he listened well and gave me good feedback. Getting a same day appointment was a perk.
Very thorough, professional and caring. This was my first visit. The wait time was to fill out the forms. I'm happy with my new DR!
I was very impressed by Dr. Goodman! I had a late appointment but , was still seen as soon as my paperwork was completed. He listened to me and didn't ignore any problems I had, and I'm very impressed by his professionalism.
The Dr. took his time and asked questions about family history.
Dr. Goodman is very knowlegeable and professional. He actually listens to the patient and offers different alternatives for treatment. Highly recommend him!
Great Doctor and I didn't have to wait long he says he's respects his patients time :)
A professional in every sense of the word
