Dr. Goodfried performed a hip replacement on me. I had been crippled for 2 years and was sent to back specialists and pain management doctors in Palestine,Tx. I begged for a referral to Dr. Goodfried for my coworker had used him. Finally, I demanded a referral and Dr . Goodfried did one X-ray and told me that I needed a hip replacement . Two weeks later my hip replacement was done. My results were outstanding. I was home in 2 days with PT assigned . Dr. Goodfried changed my life!

I am sure he is good in his diagnosis and repair of his 2 specialties. My body is made up of several specialties which work together to keep me healthy. The appointment reviewed my test results for one of his specialties. The recommendations were in direct conflict with issues involving his other specialty. I do not want a doctor that is so specialized that he cannot get to know me a little better. As well, he came into the appt in a grumpy mood. I left there feeling horrible. Ask my husband.

I left his office crying because he acted like my hip problem is my fault. Do not go to Dr. Goodfried if you are young and have a complicated hip condition. He will not help you.
