Dr Goodman does know his stuff and I’ve seen him almost 10 yrs but his office is terrible. 1-2 hr wait times and rude staff. I can’t see him anymore because I have blue cross but that may be a blessing in disguise. The disrespect of people’s time is maddening. Patient care is low priority. But he is a reliable ‘shooter’. I trust him to inject properly. Or I wouldn’t have stayed this long. Fix your office Goodman! It’s doable!

I have had dr G for about a decade until stop taking my insurance. Bcbs i guess dropped him so now im using another doc with so far better results. Dr G knows his stuff i will give him that. Yes he's hard at times and tells you what at times u just dont want to hear. He does not force drugs on you. There are steps to take before one can get to another option. Pain management is rough to deal only way anyone gets addicted to meds if patient is abusing dose or not communicating w/dr. Staff worst

I have been a patient of Dr. Goodman for years, and I can't say enough good things about him. He takes his time with you, truly listens to you, thoroughly explains things in terms you can understand, & cares about his patients. I have yet to see another Dr. that I can say the same for. He is very knowledgeable, & i have 100% trust in him. You may wait longer than you'd like, but he's worth the wait! If you are looking for a pain specialist, Dr. Goodman is the guy to see.

Been a patient at Dr Goodmans practice 11 years. He has a cold condisending mannerism. I do beleive what other have wrote about his God complex. His staff is very rude, never call you back, they snap at you if you ask too many questions never fill out prior auth from insurance so I go without meds that can heIp me. I stayed because the ARNP I see is so great but after 11 years I'm leaving. They treat patients so poorly like we owe them, as if we have no where else to go. I deserve better.

I highly recommend Dr. Goodman. He explains my questions and/or test results in a manner that I can understand. He is very knowledgable and professional. I feel he shows genuine concern and explains all options to me that will help to reduce pain and discomfort. Definitely one of the finest Doctors, with a sincere regard to helping people feel better. Thank you.

He is extremely rude and doesn't care what you think at all. He doesn't want to hear anything you have to say. He is just awful and dismissive. The first time he sees you he says he's going to give you a spinal block without even knowing anything about you or your condition. I wish I knew how he manages to still be a practicing physician.
