This content was provided by Dr. Goodwin "As a strictly practicing rheumatologist, I believe in patient education and the patient taking control of their life as much as possible by natural and safe methods; this in an attempt to control and when possible to defeat different rheumatic conditions."

Because I Have moved a number of times over the years I have been fortunate to have had several excellent doctors. The first exception has been Dr Allan Goodwin. He is disagreeable, forgetful, and 100% useless as a caregiver.

I made an appointment with Dr Goodwin as a new patient 1 month in advance. When making the appointment I inquired about getting my medical records and any paperwork I may have to fill out. The girl I spoke with assured me all I need to do was show up. 4 hours before my appointment they called and rescheduled me for 2 months in the future because they did not have my medical record! Good luck with his staff!

Dr Goodwin is horrible. He’s impatient with the elderly, seems always to be agitated and did a physical exam that was so rough my 91 year old mother had to return to her pain doctor for an epidural. This occurred AFTER Dr Goodwin had been told about the epidural that was given just 2 weeks prior. He should retire.

Hour and a half late. NO BEDSIDE MANNER

I have had RA for 8 years and was very well managed until this past summer. Had sudden and severe joint point for the past 4mo and now loss of mobility in both thumbs. Dr. said "it's Fibromyalgia, try yoga". I waited 2 hours at my last appointment, and 90min at this one to see him. The walls between patient rooms are weak and you can hear him being just as rude to those patients as he was to me. This Dr. is good if you only need refills and don't actually have any real concerns or issues.

I would leave 0 stars if I could. Sat in his office for almost an hour and there was another patient before me still waiting. I walked out because I was exhausted from waiting so long. Along with rheumatology issues I also have stage 4 ovarian cancer, so it was upsetting to wait in pain for so long. This was my 2nd visit, so he knows my history. I am still waiting for a phone call from the office manager who was alerted to the situation. This was a month ago. No phone call still.

Never, would I recommend this arrogant man!

This doctor saw me young and didnt believe my symptoms he told me to , " eat more lettuce and try yoga". I left very confused and not happy. Turns out I have Hashimotos and lupus. Thank goodness I found another doctor that took the time to find what was wrong with me.
