I'm really not sure why this physician is still practicing. I had broken 3 vertabrae in my back and the first visit was ok. When I went back a month later is when I have issue. When he came into the office and started looking at my notes he literally asked me "Why are you here? I didn't write any notes, so I don't know why you came here theither first time." This was the most shocking thing a doctor has ever said to me. I would not recommend this Dr. at all.

Dr. Goodman was very nice and very informative. He took the time to go over my MRI with me and show me exactly where my problem was with my neck. He did a very thorough exam on me and talked at length about my options. I was very impressed with his knowledge and his bedside manor. Would definitely recommend him!
