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.

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.
