I had shoulder surgery with Dr Craig Goodhart and had previously been to too many orthopedic doctors all over DFW the last few years and he is the only one to get me some answers and feeling better. He treats every patient individually not all the same, will literally get on the floor and demonstrate movements that he thinks you can or cannot do, ask what your goals are and what you want to happen as well as gives his advice, and truly cares about getting each patient well again.

I've had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Goodhart several time and found his "bed side manor to be most professional as well as personal. Dr Goodhart addressed my situation with several options before deciding on an operation. Dr. Goodhart'several staff are well trained and very Professional.

Dr. Goodhart has been my surgeon on 3 separate occasions starting in August 2001. He just completed a total left knee replacement for me on June 6th, 2016. I've had a wonderful experience in my recovery. Dr. Goodhart did an awesome job with my knee. I would highly recommend him!! His staff is also very nice to work with...very prompt with phone calls and such. If you need to get your knees looked at, call Dr. Goodhart!!

I have been using Dr. Goodhart for about 20yrs now. he did my first surgery when i was 6yrs old and has done several since. I wish I could give him more stars than offered here. He has done several surgery's for broken limbs on me. All went well and I have not had problems with them since. I have also referred people to him and they have been amazed at the work that he is done! I always feel that I dont need a second opinion with him vs other Doctors I do. You wont be disappointedI

On my first visit Dr. Goodhart told me what would happen and it worked as he and his staff said. He was very interested in a great outcome and my health. I think that following his instructions greatly lead to a successful ending. My leg movement truly has not been this good in the last 7 years.
