I have recently moved to the Panhandle and feel so lucky to I have found Dr Goodman! He is very professional, thorough and kind! I'm a 57 yr old male and have been watching two nodules on my thyroid for year's. I have had other endocrinology in larger city look at them, but none of the other doctors have taken the time to understand my history and advise me on a plan to ensure my safety. His staff is also very helpful! When making an appointment ask for Karen she'll work magic to get you in.

I was referred to Dr Goodman with elevated prolactin levels and I’ve had great care. He was thorough and professional. I hope to continue treatment as long as needed.

Said only checks THS for thyroid. Really? There are other thyroid tests that should be run if you don't feel well. Doesn't believe in checking other hormones. Two of my adrenal labs from a previous Dr were below normal. Blew it off & said I don't have adrenal fatigue even though other Drs DO believe in adrenal fatigue & 2 previous labs are below normal for adrenal. There are all kinds of thyroid tests Dr Goodman! How about Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, TPO & TgAb? Not impressed.

Although I have a primary doctor, I have been working with Dr Goodman to help reduce my diabetes risk this past year. This is a serious disease and I wanted a expert professional on this to help treat me. He is on time, calming, very knowledgeable and takes the time to truly help you. Tommy

Dr. Goodman listened to me and explained everything! It was a pleasure to have a physician listen and talk with you and not always be worrying about the computer documentation.

I began seeing Dr. Goodman after a terrible experience with another endocrinologist in the area. Dr. Goodman is everything a good doctor should be and his obvious interest in his patients comes through in the fact that he never rushes an appointment, never makes you feel like just a number and is really personable. He has done a great job of monitoring my condition and I have already recommended him to others. I wish he would expand his practice to become my GP!

I have seen Dr. Goodman 3 or 4 times over the past couple of years about my thyroid condition. I never feel rushed, he takes the time to ask me questions, answer my questions and do a careful ultrasound. He told me I looked great!! Since my condition has been stable he said I don't have to come regularly. I think many doctors automatically give patients a followup date, and I appreciated his opinion that this is optional for me.
