Care Philosophy

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.

I came to Dr. Goodman from Reno Nevada. The Dr.'s in Reno told me that they didn't think they could help me. I have stage 4 lung cancer that spread to my thyroid and kidney. Dr. Goodman received my medical records via fax and accepted me as a patient I arrived in Vegas in Feb of 2017 and met with him. I have received wonderful care after 4 rounds of chemo the lung and thyroid tumors are gone. I appreciate Dr. Goodman's honest approach, just tell me like it is. I appreciate that about him.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and give us a 5-star rating. We are so pleased to hear about the positive experience you've had while under the care of Dr. Goodman. We are honored that you traveled to us all the way from Reno for care. We are happy to hear how well you are doing. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. If there is anything you need, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly at infocccn@usoncolgy.com. We wish you all the best. Thank you,

One of the most personable, compassionate doctors I have met. He is extremely thorough and is such a calming force knowing that you are in good hands under his care. I have had a very abrupt onset of a critical illness and out of the many doctors I have seen thus far, he was the only one to take time to explain everything and help me to understand what to expect moving forward for my day to day living. I am so grateful for my friend (fellow patient of his also) that recommended I see Dr. Goodman

Dr Goodman led my family you believe that he was experienced in dealing with Mesothelioma. He is not. My father had great confidence in this man and he gave us all false hope. My Dad passed away 3 weeks ago at Southern Hills hospital which is CONNECTED to Goodman's office. My Dad spoke highly of this doctor for years and he has yet to reach out to our family or make an appearance the day my Dad passed. Pathetic. Nevada health care at it's finest. What has happened to basic human compassion?

He's gentle a kind. Open to alternative treatments. Very thorough and knowledgeable.
