Specialties

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

Great Overall Experience

My experience with Dr. Gooding has been uniformly excellent. I have seen him for several sports related injuries over the years, as has my son. His bedside manner is exceptional. He does not push to surgery but explores all options with you and is a very effective communicator. I recommend him highly.

Consider your options first!

I heard Dr. Gooding was great after I sustained a knee injury. I was taken to th e ER, sent home and appt was made with Dr. Gooding the following day. He had never met me before but when he first saw me he looked irritated. He told me I needed surgery. It was scheduled for the next day. I still don't know to this day what exactly he did during surgery and neither does my family. He has a poor bedside matter. At my first post hospital follow up visit he actually raised his voice to me and my over a miscommunication that was not our fault. He always walks in the room with a stern look on his face. If I could pick another doctor now, I would. I have a shoulder injury too and am not going back to his practice. I've found other staff from X-Ray to receptionists to be snooty too. He may be a great surgeon ( which I have yet to find out) but he lacks compassion!

I was very satisfied with my treatment.He spent alot of time with me, which by the way, put his scheduled behind. I did not feel rushed, i felt like he really cared. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. I have another orthopedic problem, and plan to see him this week.

I thought he was very good. He did not push the idea of surgery and tried other remedies first. I had a problem with me kne and I fially opted for surgery. However, it takes a very long time to get an appointment. My knee is bothering me again and I have to wait for more then 3 weeks to get an appointment. Also, it a long wait once you get there for your appointmet.
