Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Goodman Jr "I believe that taking care of my patients is the greatest privilege and responsibility that can be bestowed in our society. I strive to treat every patient as I would want a member of my family to be treated under the circumstances. I communicate honestly and directly to the patient, not by sugar-coating. I hold the patient-physician partnership as the key to one day eliminating all human suffering related to cancer and blood diseases, and aim to do so one patient at a time."
