It is very difficult to make an appointment with Dr. Goodman. The automated telephone system puts you on hold. I called several times and listened to their announcements for 20 minutes before my call was answered. I was asked to call back. It should be shocking that Dr. Goodman allows her patients to be abused like this but it is not. Neither Dr. Goodman not her staff answer emails promptly. Hospital for Special Surgery should be embarrassed by the way Dr. Goodman runs her practice.

I was very disappointed by my appointment with Dr. Goodman. I paid out of pocket for the appointment and she was very rude and condescending. She actually told me she was not impressed by my labs. I went to her for help, not to impress her. She was abrupt and quick and of no help to me.

Dr. Goodman was an absolute savior for me. I was experiencing many different symptoms that presented as a possible systemic disease. I had seen several different doctors and plenty of tests. Dr. Goodman took plenty of time looking over my lab work as well as speaking with me about my symptoms. She made me feel very confident about my diagnosis and the plan for my future. She is an unbelievably bright woman who has compassion for her patients.
