Dr. Goodwin is the best as what he does, very personable and is very knowledgeable. Unfortunate his staff in the front office is very unprofessional and they eat at the front desk, rude and I was very taken back by this. I love Dr. Goodwin but it makes me rethink my appointment. I recommend him highly but I have warn who I send.

Had a 9:30 appt, but didn't get to see a doctor until 12:05, finished at nearly 12:30. By then, I was tired, hungry, & pissed that I had to ask a colleague to see my own patients (I am also a medical provider) who I was scheduled to start seeing pts at 12p. Even after I advised Dr. Solomon that I'd been there for nearly 3 hrs, never once did he or anyone offer an apology. There is NO EXCUSE to treat a patients this way. I'm changing my PCP so I don't have to return to this eye doctor again.

Dr. Goodein Jr. has performed a cataract removal, nd on both eyes the Ahmed Valve Replacement Surgery. These procedures were performed April 19, 2016, May 17, nd June 6, 2016. When I first walked into DR. GOODWIN'S office my eye pressure from glaucoma were 40 in one eye nd 30 in another. I have been dealing with an eye disease for at least 20 years. I met Dr. Goodwin after a referral from my Optometrists Dr. C Knight, nd Dr. Smith. I'm so thankful for the brilliant knowledge nd expertise Dr.G

My vision was getting so much worse, and I was feeling afraid that I would ultimately go blind. Starting with Dr. Goodwin's professional and office staff in his Norwalk office, and ending up with treatments at his LA office, I felt reassured and hopeful. By the time treatments were completed, my vision had returned to normal and I can not be more grateful. Great office, doctors, and outcome.
