The visit went smoothly from start to finish. All questions were answered and adequate amount of time was given with the MD which was a nice change from most doctors visits these days. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Gynecological Exams

All of the staff was kind and I was able to get into and out of my appointment quickly. The lab tech drawing blood was quick as well, and did a fantastic job. Usually, I have to be stuck a few times before a vein is found and she did so immediately. Dr. Goodwin was fantastic as always.

Pap Smear

Dr Goodwin is always personable, honest, to the point, funny, and a joy to see. I couldn’t ask for a better doctor for the last 6 years.

Love Dr Goodwin. Kind, thorough, listens to concerns and questions each visit. Only downside was an extended wait time (50+minutes to see the nurse)

Great feedback from Dr Goodwin. Not thrilled with instrument used to take photos/vildeos since it was too warm when inserted and we had to give it time to cool down

Prolia® Injection / Osteopososis Treatment

It was my first time meeting Dr Goodwin, since Dr Hawes retired. She is a whip-smart, compassionate provider. I am over the moon over the good luck of being paired with her. She has already helped me with my HRT, and has given me some good suggestions about finding an endocrinologist out of town, until I'm seen by the local endoc. I have taken her advise and I have an appt in Winston-Salem for 7/2024. It's been 5 weeks since the referral went to the AVL endoc group and they still haven't called me to schedule an appt, which Dr G informed me that it could be a good 6-7 months from the point they call me. So I'm going to get treated sooner thanks for her input. Yup, she's a winner!

Annual Well Woman Exam

Seeing Dr. Goodwin is like visiting an old friend! She makes you feel at home (even when you are in the stirrups). You feel lke she is happy to see you and takes her time to do whatever it is that you came to see her for.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Dr. Goodwin is always thoughtful, clear and helpful. Always a pleasure.

Bone Density

Dr Goodwin took time to talk to me about bone density and whether I should get more mammograms at my age of 75.

Gynecological Ultrasound / Sonogram

competent staff..and Dr. Goodwin clear and helpful with results from scan

Gynecological Ultrasound / Sonogram

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Goodwin is my favorite doctor of any doctor I go to. I wish I could see her for all of my needs. She is a doctor that makes you feel comfortable enough to talk to her about anything (like you would just sit at you kitchen table and talk to). She gives you honest answers and makes you feel like she cares about you and your wellbeing.

The front desk staff was very kind and helpful. The nurses were very sweet yet professional. They also taught me some things while they were taking my vitals and genuinely seemed to care about their patients. Dr. Goodwin is always personable, takes time to talk, walks you through what she plans to do and makes sure to check in while she's going through the process.
