About our process
Mar 26, 2022
One of my symptoms is short-term memory problems. Therefore I always make a written list of things I want to discuss with the doctor. But I'm easily distracted and usually forget to consult the list during my visits. Early In my most recent visit I mentioned a symptom that's become especially troublesome and that I'd hoped he might be able to resolve. But I didn't get a chance to describe the severity of the symptom or ask how it might be relieved. Instead we spent most of the visit discussing something that was not an immediate concern. So I'm still struggling to cope with the problem on my own.

Doctor Goodin always takes the time to do a thorough exam and answer all of my questions. I drive an hour each way just to see him!

Best doctor I've had the priviledge of being seen by. Always asks about how patients are doing in their personal lives as well as with their Illness. And no matter how busy always gives as much time as nessecery to thoroughly explain Information that the patient should and answer all questions/concerns.

I don't recall if he said anything about a next visit. They usually contact me by phone or email message about scheduling follow-up appointments.

Dr. Goodin is awesome. I respect his judgment and his advice (and I'm skeptical about most people and their advice or how up to date their info is. Dr. Goodin is ALWAYS on top of the latest research and whatever you ask him he knows about. He's amazing.

Dr. Goodin explained various options to me and listened to what I reported had been my past experience with some of them. He worked with me to find a medication that he thought would help me and that I was comfortable with given negative reactions I have had to certain meds in the past.

I have had MS for 26.5 years and this was the 1st time my neurologist sat went over my MRI and discussed it with me. For the first time I actually felt like more than just a number.

This is a complicated question involving the interaction of Ocrevus COVID and PML on a patient with progressive MS with little data to turn to so far. I trust that Dr. Goodin is bringing his best judgment to bear.

The connections was ok for most of the time although it did briefly freeze a couple of times and the connection crashed toward the end of the appointment. Then my doctor called me on the phone to finish discussion.

Since I have MS I usually have a neurological exam which is almost impossible to do via telehealth. Further I forgot to mention some neurological issues that I would have brought up during a neurological exam that was relevant. I didn't make a list prior - which I should have.
