I’ve read many of the comments. I’ve known Dr. Goodman as a patient and consider him a friend. I have a good relationship with the office staff.

There's an exception or two -- Mandy is terrific....Read More

When my 90-year-old father's long-time doctor left the area, I found it nearly impossible to find him a new one. Dr. Goodman is one of the few Doctors in San Luis Obispo who is willing to take on new patients, even though he has a heavy caseload. Yes, we had to wait for about 30 minutes to see him,...Read More
