Dr. Darenie Goodman has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

No bedside manner

This doctor pretends to take notes, she will ask the same questions each visit even if you were just there 2 weeks prior. The answers never make it to the chart. I have visited this office 3 times in 7 weeks. My most recent appt. was for a pap smear. Every appointment she has insisted on prescribing me birth control, I have not taken hormones in the last 10 years, and I am planning a family and that should've been in my chart. It started the same as any other appt. all the same questions who's answers should've been in my chart. She insisted on prescribing me hormones again. I refused, again. Instead of asking more questions why, she says to me "if you're going to use natural form of birth control just don't get pregnant." I pointed out that was rude. She started to argue with me, saying it's her job as my doctor to give advise. It's her job to explain what can happen without birth control... What she said to me was not advise, not a warning as to what could happen, and it wasn't a sex ed lesson, what she said was incredibly rude. I am a 31 year old woman and I was treated like a 14 year old girl. I got off the table and started putting my clothes on. She opened the door, stood in the doorway and continued to argue with me while I dressed myself. I've had some bad experiences but this is by far the worst behavior I've ever experienced from a health care professional.

One Star

I have had 3 appointments here. I'd like to give it no stars. The front desk is very unprofessional. The wait times are excessive. I was there yesterday only a couple minutes early, instead of my usual 20 minutes early for appointments. I did this because of how long I wait before an MA takes me back(I could write a full page just about the MA's). I was there for an annual pap smear yesterday. Already it's an embarrassing and vulnerable situation. The doc asks all the same questions she asked in the other appointments. You'd think the answers would already be in my chart... This is my 3rd appointment here in the last 7 weeks! She asks about birth control. When I tell her I'm not on any she looks at me like I'm retarded. I was treated like a 13 year old girl instead of a 31 year old woman! When she finally got that she wasn't going to get to shove hormones down my throat she said "so if you are going to continue to use natural form of birth control just don't get pregnant!" I don't need a sex ed lesson! I haven't taken hormones for 10 years! And besides that, I'm getting married in May and will try to get pregnant in June. This is why I'm seeing this Doc. This is why My appointments have been so close together! So let me set the scene! I was in a paper vest and a paper blanket to cover my lower half. She says "so if you're going to continue to use natural form of birth control, just don't get pregnant!". I stopped her, I said excuse me? She says "what? Just don't get pregnant." as she shrugs her shoulders I said that's really rude, you're very rude, I think I'd like to leave. She tried to say that it's her job as my Doc to give advise about this stuff. I said that wasn't advise, I'm 31 not 13 and you dont know me and you didn't ask what my plans are. That's very rude of you to assume. No appology, this is what I got "All I said was be carefull without birth control, because you can get pregnant." I said that's not at all what you said and I'm leaving I got off the table and grabbed my clothes. Before I could even get them on she's opened the door and is standing in the door continuing to argue with me. She even tried to turn it around " you should leave! You were here 45 minutes late and I was nice enough to take you!" there's no way I was 45 minutes late! Fully nude argument with a Doc holding the door open! I'm a very modest person, and it's very hard to say all of this in such a public way. But I would like to save others from having this kind of experience. I think I can safely say it is THE worst experience I've had with health care "professionals".
