Dr Goodman diagnosed my father with colon cancer in the late '90 and afterwards my siblings and spouses have been having colonoscopy scheduled . We would highly recommend him.

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.

Very un-doctor-like. That is, he cares. He takes time to listen and talk. He is very knowledgeable and wise. We are lucky to have a doctor like Dr. Goodman in Chattanooga.
