Lady Lake, FL |
My wife and I were referred to Dr. Goodman by our primary care Dr. We found Dr. Goodman to be very thorough both in our initial office consultations and follow-ups after he performed a procedure in his surgery center. His staff is very professional and courteous at the same time. Forrest Berg

I have been a patient of Dr Goodman's over ten years. I have always had very good to excellent experiences for all consultations, out patient procedures and follow visits.
in Mount Dora, FL |
On initial visit I couldn't be more impressed with Dr Goodman. I have a lot of experience with Doctors and only a few times have I taken the time to write a good review. When a Doctor takes all the time you need to answer your questions and treats you like a human being instead of a number, to me that goes a long way. His excellent reviews are well deserved.

Tavares, FL |
We moved two years ago & are trying to find professional, caring & knowledgeable physicians. It took a year to find Dr. Goodman. I was referred to another gastroenterologist when hospitalized for diverticulitis. The other doctor was rushed, didn't review reports or answer questions. I have seen Dr. Goodman several times now. He always explains, answers questions & individualizes tests & treatments. I now feel well & truly appreciate his kindness. I highly recommend him. Jan, retired RN

My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Goodman for almost twenty years. We are very happy with the care we are receiving. He is very thorough, takes as much time as needed with you, answers all of your questions and makes you feel very at ease. His office staff is very friendly and they act in a very professional manner. I would highly recommend Dr. Goodman as a gastroenterologist.

Excellent care provided by Dr. Goodman. He goes over and above the routine to understand, research and relay any information in a easy to understanding manner.
in Eustis, FL |
I have seen Dr. Goodman since the early nineties.He has performed my colonoscopies and treated me for a bleeding ulcer i had in the early 2000's. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate him-he is a wonderful doctor! His staff is very friendly and efficient, I never have to wait more than 5 minutes in the waiting room, nor in the examining room.He is a terrific person to talk to-he's always friendly and actually listens to what I have to say. And I never feel rushed! Excellent doctor!
in Oviedo, FL |
As far as Dr. Goodman is concerned, I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is what his name says – “A good man”. Dr. Jeff Goodman has a great personal demeanor about himself that is natural. He is sincere and serious about his profession, showing a deep concern and devotion to his patients who rely on him and his knowledge. He speaks to people on their level, using language that is understandable, taking time to make sure the patient understands, he is comfortable to be around.

Had one of the best experiences at Dr. Goodman's office and surgery center. Highly recommend him.
in Leesburg, FL |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Goodman. My husband has been seeing him for about 12 years with very significant colon problems. I had occasion myself to just have a colonoscopy. He is a great doctor, professional, personable, and when someone who works with several gasto doctors tells me they send their father to him, that's recommendation enough for me.

Dr. Goodman read all my past history. He was ready to answer questions during my initial visit and prior to the surgical procedure. After procedure he explained in detail what was found. I would put my complete trust in him.
in Sorrento, FL |
I would absolutely recommend Dr. Goodman to all of my family and friends. Whenever I want to find out about a doctor, I ask nurses and other staff who work with various doctors. Dr. Goodman received glowing recommendations from all of the people whom I spoke with. I consistently heard that he would be the doctor that they would go to for a colonoscopy. This was good advice in that he did an excellent job and was very caring and professional. I will only use Dr. Goodman in the future.
in Mt. Dora |
Dr. Goodman and his staff are wonderful. I have had several procedures in the past and Dr. Goodman has always taken the time to explain what to expect and ease any possible concerns. He takes as much time as needed and never makes you feel rushed. Highly recommend.
