      My experience with Dr. Goodman spans at least 25+ years. He is extremely intelligent and has a unbelievable calming demeanor no matter what the situation. Patient ALWAYS return to me after consultation well educated on their disease process and what to expect surgically. He is always professional. Surgically he is one of the best surgeons I have ever worked with. I am not one of his patients but I do refer all my patients that need a Gyn oncologist to him. He represents the best of the best

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
