Dr. Goodman saved my life!

Dr. Goodman is thorough and very professional. Because he listens, he was able to diagnose my a-fib and send me directly from his office to the hospital for testing, which ultimately led to an evaluation by a cardiologist and a quadruple by-pass. The cardiologist told me that I would have eventually had a heart attack and with the rhythm problem plus 95 to 100% blockage of my coronary arteries, it is unlikely I would have survived a cardiac event. My primary purpose in seeing him is for a toxic goiter condition, which he has been able to control through medication.
