Was able to use MyChart messages to request appointment including details of what I wanted to talk about. Received call back quickly and they left a detailed message. Calling back I was able to connect with a scheduler right away. Appointment was available and scheduled quickly. Appointment (virtual) was easy to log into and when provider was having technical issues offered an alternative (calling me by phone) so I could have appointment without rescheduling. All in all a wonderful experience.

My appointment with Dr.Goodman was made by South Point Hospital personnel. He was not informed of the reason for my visit. He quickly read my file and asked pertinent questions about my injury. He noted that South Point had not scheduled an MRI as directed in my file. He immediately sent me to radiology to schedule the MRI. I was able get an MRI five days later. We also discussed the extreme pain I was experiencing. He prescribed some pain medication that has been very helpful. I was very pleased with the concern Dr. Goodman showed and the actions he took.
