Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Would recommend him anytime. He is a very professional person but takes the time to explain it all to you. Had knee surgery by him and he did an awesome job and was very caring and friendly.

I've known Dr. Goodfellow for years but recently sought him out to help understand a series of lower back and hip issues. Skipping the details , what was most impressive about Dr. Goodfellow was his willingness and ability really to explain the various factors at work.
