      This doctor is like all the rest here. Just came to retire and doesn't keep up with new research. he probably should just be called a diabetic dr. he didn't know half of what he should have for thyroid.

      Taken excellent care of my husband for over 25 years , also my daughter - in - law , her mother & sister as well as myself for a number of years. He is wonderful and we will all travel to Florida for our next check up in June. This is a most caring doctor who listens to his patients & works with you for your specific medical conditions.

      In brief, told me my 3 other physicians were wrong. Though my lab results are now normal after several endocrine prescriptions for 1.5 yrs, Dr Goodman suggested I stop taking all of them and re-test in two months to see if I really need them. (I'd gone to him for expert fine tuning on my doses). When I said I felt better following the protocol/Rx advice of the other doctors, he said Well, some people feeling better when they drink alcohol. - implying I was getting jollies from the Rx.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
