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.
in Bullard, TX |
Dr. Goodfried is a great surgeon and doctor. He is very knowledgeable in the area of Hips and Knees. He has great communication skills and bedside manors. I highly recommend Dr Goodfried to all of my family, friends and co-workers.
