Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Goddard "Our mission is to provide outstanding care is to provide the best rheumatologic care anywhere.

"Rheumatology is a challenging discipline because rheumatic diseases affect many organ systems and mimic other diseases. To be successful, the rheumatologist must listen to, learn from and synthesize the information provided by the patient. These challenges are what made me become a rheumatologist.  I have been providing care to the communities of Brooklyn, Queens and Nassau County for more than 20 years.  We are witnessing major changes in health care delivery. As a member of the Weill Cornell Medical College faculty I look forward to meeting these challenges to ensure continued excellence of care for the community that I serve.""
