Dr. Goodman has operated on my spine three different times - and - I'm doing great. I thank him for the special care and thorough education he provided before each surgery. Hey Doc - Thanks!

Dr. Goodman was my assigned Neuro following a severe accident that left me with a fractured C2 vertebrae. He was extremely helpful during my recovery, did a wonderful job in explaining the recovery process and outlining key benchmarks and improvements during my recovery. His excellent demeanor and professionalism made it a joy to work with him. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Goodman is very professional, kind, and listens to his patients. I think all the staff are great and go the "extra mile" for the patient. If not for Dr. Goodman, and his surgical skill, I am sure I would be in a wheelchair.

Dr. Goodman is one of the most caring, and provider of good care that I have ever met. He has counseled with me, and performed appropriate surgical procedures on me. In my book he is one of the very best. After a lifetime of many sport related injuries, and later auto accident related injuries, I have had 48 surgeries. Without having the best care possible I would not be alive. Dr. Goodman is one of the best there is. I would recommend him to anyone. Sincerely, Diane MacKerricher
