In December 1993, I was admitted to Erlanger on an emergency. My esophagus was bleeding and I required an endoscopy for an accurate diagnosis. My Internist at the time called in the best gastroenterologist available in Chattanooga, Dr. Michael Goodman. He diagnosed me with esophageal cancer. Because of his diagnosis I was able to receive the care I needed to survive. His followup care always gave me the feeling that I was his most important patient, even though I wasn't. His bedside manner was always excellent and helped me heal, regardless of my health needs over the insuring years. This happened 28 years ago. I will always be in his debt for helping to save my life and for being one of my best docs I have had during my life.

Dr. Goodman is one of the most caring doctors. He takes time to listen and make sure he hears all of my concerns. He treats some of my other family members. We really trust his decisions in treating each one of us. I would highly recommend him.

My visit was very helpful. The nurses were very professional and very concerned about my condition, I really appreciate Dr. Goodman's knowledge, his great diagnostic skills and his great skills doing endoscope procedures. Also he communicates very well , Dr, Goodman is my doctor and my friend and the procedure went very well. The medicine used to put me to sleep was very comfortable and I had no pain when it was administered. That means a lot to me. Everything done was done very well. My visit was excellent.

Love Dr. Goodman! He is one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever met. He doesn't rush me out the door and listens to me. After being sick for years and seeing other doctors without anyone ever finding what was wrong with me, Dr. Goodman found my issue right away and got me on the right path to recovery and healing. I can't thank him enough! I have been his patient since 2008.

Nobody looks forward to a colonoscopy, right? Fortunately, Dr. Goodman and his stellar staff helps to remove a good deal of the unpleasantness from this potentially life-saving procedure. During the office visit, his nurse was very informative and answered all of my questions. Dr. Goodman was attentive and spent quite a bit of time with me. On the day of the procedure, his staff made me feel comfortable, and restored any dignity that was lost during the previous days prep.
