      I felt safe and in great hands with Dr. Goodman. I found him after an extensive search of surgeons who take my insurance. That meant by the time I found him I really needed help. Dr. Goodman made space in his calendar to take care of my surgery. He gave me confidence in his expertise, and made the whole process simple. And more than a year later I'm doing just fine and my scar is small and looks as though it will eventually heal. His bedside manner is gentle, reassuring, and engaging.
