DR. GOODWIN thank you so much for changing my life. He was honest and upfront , and after 20 years of back pain made me pain free.
Dr. Goodwin spent 15 minutes with me.He ask for an Xray , he did not even look into my back and try to sell me his friend Physiotherapy that was not cover by my insurance. basically he just told me what i knew. And now i received a bill of $1650 dollars bill which of course my insurance is disputing.
Ive had Dr. Goodwin perform 3 different surgerys in 10 years.Never have I met such a well educated and caring Surgeon.The DR. takes all the time to explain the details and is no rush to perform Surgery. All 3 operations were successful and I recommend for spine or back this is the doctor. The entire office is fabulous,Shira and John arrange everything as well as take care of all the documentation.
Dr. Goodwin ended 40 years of steadily increasing back pain. I have my active life back again. Thank you.
Horrible bedside manner. Very well may be an amazing surgeon but is a complete and total horrible human being. Doesn’t care about his patients and questionable billing practices.
I’m a dance and Pilates instructor. In 2016 I was in so much pain that I couldn’t sleep, I was teaching from a chair because I couldn’t move with out being in pain. Dr Goodwin performed a fusion of L4/5 and I woke up (in a lot of pain from the surgery) but the leg and back pain was gone. It’s been almost 2 years and that pain hasn’t returned. I am dancing and doing Pilates now. I lost 30 pounds and feel so much better. I’d recommend Dr Goodwin to anyone!
Great experience. Gave me back my life. Very nice as well.
Called for appointment and was seen in two days. Dr. Goodwin was ontime, very kind, took time to understand the issue and diagnose (with xray). Conclusion was no surgery needed. Wondeful fellow.
I saw Dr. Goodwin for a second opinion about spinal fusion to relieve back pain and chose him to do the surgery. The doctor explained his recommendation and patiently answered all of my questions. The surgery went as he described and my recovery is well underway. The improvement was noticeable right away, and I think will become even better as I become stronger. Dr. Goodwins office was also very responsive when I had questions for the doctor between appointments.
had a two level cervical fusion by Goodwin, he never fixed the problem, dismissed my pain after the surgery, treatment I received was worse than a dog, my pain management doc sees many complaints by patients with him. I found a wonderful neurosurgeon to repair his mess but I'm still left with unnecessary metal in my neck that he put in which serves no purpose. Beware.
It has been one month since Dr. Goodwin performed laminectomy and instrumented spinal fusion on my l4,l5, s1 vertebrae. This is major surgery and I am so happy I did the research and found him. He spent over 2 hours w/ me and my wife in our first visit and I left knowing I was in the right hands. He then had me see a neurologist and do an MRI. These were reviewed at the second appointment and I decided to have the operation. He listened intently and was honest and caring. Five stars!
Extremely satisfied with Dr Goodwin, was going to physical therapy for lower back pain, my physical therapist recommended Dr Goodwin. I called and was given an appointment the following day. The office staff set up my MRI and xray for that same day. The staff is extremely nice and very efficient. Dr Goodwin set me up for emergency surgery for my lower back, it went very well I feel like a new person. My entire experience including the Hospital for Special Surgery was wonderful.
My wife had back surgery after being in pain for some time. She was very nervous about surgery, but after a referal from a friend, went with Dr Goodwin She has been totally satisfied for over 12 years of painless ness. Jack Boehm
All insurance and details handled for me. Dr. Goodwin very direct and easy to understand..
Loved his confidence and follow through. C2 C7 fused vertebrae and recovery is great. HSS as a hospital and Dr Charles Goodwin as the surgeon is a fantastic combination.
Dr. Goodwin was the only orthopedic specialist (I consulted three) who correctly identified the problem I faced (my situation was complicated by three separate neurological and anatomical issues) and to make a recommendation for treatment that made sense. I checked his recommendation with two other specialists who both concurred that his assessment was correct. I cant stress enough how diligent and quick he was in making the effort to get to the bottom of the situation.
My experience with Dr. Goodwin was exceptional for spinal surgery. My quality of life was restored with the surgery. I was confident with his expertise, care and communication throughout. I have since recommended him to others and will continue to do so. Nancy
I have high praise for Dr Goodwin and Terry at the from desk. I had a herniated disc that was pressing on a nerve which was very painful. Dr. Goodwin was kind and thoughtful and took the time to answer all my questions and explain why I needed surgery (microdiscectomy) He did not pressure me but made sure I understood his thinking. He saw me in the hospital before surgery and was reassuring. When I woke up my pain was gone and I was able to go home within 24 hours. My care at HSS was suburb
Dr. Goodwin has been my orthopedist for nearly 20 years. You could not find a better doctor. In addition to being a remarkably skillful surgeon, he is personable and patient, and he goes out of his way to accommodate his patients schedules. He understands the importance that physical conditioning plays in a persons life, and he patiently evaluates what you need to do to get back in your game, whatever that may be. This is someone who became a doctor for all the right reasons.
Dr. Goodwin restored full function to my upper body through a spinal fusion operation. He is an amazing surgeon and physician!! He was able to properly diagnose and treat the problem where others had failed. As his patient you know that he cares about you having the most successful outcome possible.
