Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Goodman is an excellent doctor. Better than many. His staff is extremely busy and people are people. Show kindness and, eventually, you will receive kindness back. As for Dr. Goodman, I would definitely recommend him to anyone. If you bring a good book and prepare yourself for a busy day,...more

I actually like Dr. Goodman himself, but his staff is horrible! They are rude and cruel even! And Dr. Goodman is aware of this problem but fails to do anything about it. Too bad.

Dr. Goodman is a dedicated Dr. who has been completely sabotaged by the Dignity Health System and his abysmally incompetent staff. Expected to be fifteen minutes early for an appointment and then wait for an hour and twenty minutes. I am changing to a different Doctor.
