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.

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.

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.
