I saw Dr. Goodman for a year. I had been in and out of therapy for nearly 10 years at the time so I was familiar with how things should go. While I respect that every doctor is different, I can't bring myself to recommend Dr. Goodman. I wish I could leave a more in-depth review but I will just say that I am not sure what he's like in his personal life, but he was very difficult to have as a therapist. He seemed to always want to prescribe me an antipsychotic of some kind even though we discussed not doing medications and he had already talked me into taking one which I complied with up until I left his treatment. I went into his office initially struggling of depression and anxiety and by the end, I had redeveloped other issues that had been dormant for years or had never been so severe before. There were a lot of money issues with him and also issues with my refusal to medicate for things I didn't believe I even had reason to take a pill for. I'm sorry, I had no choice but to leave.

I saw Dr. Goodman for a few months and I trusted him, but out of the blue during an appointment he accused me of lying about the drugs I was taking and said that I had called the pharmacy asking for more anxiety pills. None of this ever happened and the pharmacy doesn't know where he got that information from (they don't even keep phone records). I told him that he was mistaken, but he didn't believe me. It was one of the worst experiences I've ever had.
