Could not be more thankful Dr. Goodin was on call when I was admitted to the hospital. He is kind, knowledgeable and personable. He took a tremendous amount of time to perform the surgery in a thorough manner, explain the condition and coordinate care. He has gone above and beyond to ensure my condition is treated. His bedside manner made the situation as easy as possible. Highly recommend Dr. Goodin as he is a very skilled surgeon.

Dr.Goodin has done more for me than I could ever explain. I was terrified when I found out I was pregnant and then 2 weeks later found out I had thyroid cancer. He kept a close eye on me throughout my pregnancy and after I had my daughter did my surgery. I'm so glad he's the doctor I went to. Now, you can hardly tell my throat was cut open. Can barely see the scar. Thank you Dr Goodin. You have no idea how thankful we are to you.
