Dr. Goodman’s Philosophy & Goal
Dr. Goodman’s Philosophy is to have a flexible approach. His goal is to expedite a resolution of disputed claims through meticulous ratable Medical Legal reports and effective treatment.  He is sympathetic with the injured worker, yet maintains excellent credibility with all defendants.

Dr. Goodman screens patients to determine if they are living in dangerous uninhabitable conditions (e.g. exposure to infestation, mold, and for example dangerous electrical and heating-ventilation deficiencies; and hazardous structural deficits). The attorney can refer to a civil attorney and can receive an agreed upon state bar sanction referral fee.

Dr. Goodman received training in Psychopharmacology from Harvard, Stanford, John Hopkins, University of California Los Angeles, & University of California San Diego.  Dr. Goodman is considered to be one of the most prominent and competent treating Med-Legal Psychiatrists. Treatment emergencies can be accommodated. Furthermore, Dr. Goodman provides effective Medication Management. He practices what he has termed “Psychopharmacologic Economics” which reduces costs by up to ninety percent by using generics. Dr. Goodman hopes this significant cost reduction will result in increased claimant’s settlements.
