About Dr. Goodman:
Dr. Goodman's father was a physician and as a young boy he would often go on rounds with his father. Although his father died when he was young, this favorable impression left its mark and inspired Dr. Goodman to want to become a physician. Dr. Goodman
practices Family Practice Medicine because he likes to treat patients of all ages and to be able to take the time to get to know the whole patient. "I like to get to know the patient first, get a sense of their expectations and their lifestyle, this helps us to work
together to make small steps toward better health", states Dr. Goodman.
Dr. Goodman feels that the patient is the "star" and their satisfaction and trust in him makes it all worthwhile.
In his spare time Dr. Goodman is an avid cyclist and enjoys low-impact aerobics. Spending time with family and neighbors is another way that he likes to spend his time. The Goodman family moved to Kankakee three years ago and is very happy to live in this close knit community. Dr. Goodman feels that living in Kankakee is refreshing and he is glad to be part of Provena St. Mary's Hospital.
