Ratings for Dr. Karl R. Goodman
Dr. Goodman is knowledgeable, caring and the consummate professional. He takes a holistic approach and avoids over-prescribing medication. He discusses everything you need to know about your condition and explains options thoroughly. He is the best doctor I have every had and I recommend him without reservation.
Dr. Goodman is a good doctor. He is clear and thorough in his examinations. However, his staff is extremely incompetent and unprofessional. The minute they don't know how to do something (e.g. a manual referral), they just don't do it and then reply to patients in very disrespectful tones, passing the buck, and even stating it's ok for them to switch doctors. With this experience one doesn't feel cared for; which in my opinion, is essential when you are basically putting your life and health in your doctor's hands.
This doctor should get zero stars. I went specifically for an immigration medical test. He incorrectly administered the TB sin test which as per CDC guidelines should have a wheal/bubble since its administered intradermaly and not subcutaneously. On calling the office the next day Dr Goodman ofocurse wasnt available to answer and his staff after supposedly calling him back said there is no problem even if there's no whael. Here's CDC guidelines that state a pale elevation should be present for a correctly administered test. cdc.gov/tb/publications/… His bedside manner was gruff, suspicious and rude. The facilities were lacking and looked like there was a need to renovate and more of a make shift office. Extremely dirty and shady. Seriously I cannot believe this doctor is practicing since 1981. His education from Mexico is probably telling. The USCIS should examine the certification they do on these "quack" physicians.
Dr. Goodman is our family Physician since 20 Years and always has been a fantastic Dr. He listens, he cares, he goes the extra mile to make sure we get treated right even in times where we had no insurance. He referred us to other excellent specialists and saved my husbands life twice by recognizing a condition no one else did. He is tied into the medical community well and has opened doors for us to have access to many of his colleagues which are difficult to get access to. He also knows how the system works and recommended institutions such as Hospitals who are required to treat you even if you have no insurance.
the staff is helpfull and polite on the phone as well as in the office. the dr. helps with my hmo rx mail service. the dr. explains the meds that he prescribes. he listens to and answers my questions. when necessary he refers me to other excellants doctors and specialists.For over 20 years he's been my doctor and i have great respect for his knowlege and dedication to his patients.
