Biography & Education

Biography

Dr. Michael Goodwin encourages patients to take preventive steps to help maintain their health. “I emphasize the importance of wellness and prevention of chronic disease through healthy eating, regular exercise, healthy relationships and positive thinking,” he says.

He believes his most important role as a physician is to be an active, effective and compassionate listener. “I develop a relationship with each patient to individualize the care experience as much as possible,” Dr. Goodwin says. “I find when I close my mouth and open my ears, it is easier to determine the most effective way to communicate with a patient.”

Dr. Goodwin earned his medical degree from Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. He completed his family medicine residency at Providence Milwaukie Hospital in Portland.

A native Oregonian, Dr. Goodwin enjoys singing, playing the acoustic guitar, hiking, reading, and spending time with his wife and two sons.

Dr. Goodwin gave me an overall very pleasant experience!! He was patient, kind and had a warming presence. He took care of me and my needs in a short amount of time which was appreciated regarding the fact I had to go back to work. I also appreciated that he took the time to find and introduced me to another Doctor whom I was going to see at my next visit.

This was to establish care appointment and to get some meds renewed. Dr Goodwin listened and made recommendations. Was going to check with pharmacy on some of the questions and maybe make a referral to pain management.

Dr. Goodwin was amazing! This was my first appointment and I had some specific concerns. His demeanor and responsiveness was best of class. I could not have asked for a better experience. I look forward to teaming with him for my ongoing medical care.

I like Dr. Goodwin. He's very personable and easy to talk with. I was a little bit surprised that this checkup didn't include a more thorough discussion or exams regarding Eye/Ear/Nose and Throat or discussion about other checkups regarding dental, dermatology, or eye exams that I may have had as I've been used to in the past. I have an extensive history of muscular/skeletal issues (unfortunately) but there was almost no discussion of these, or even the progress of two recent shoulder surgeries. This may well have been due to time constraints - we did chat about a lot of things... He seems like a good person and, as I've said, he is easy to talk with and very likeable.

From dr Goodwin to the nursing staff to the people on the phone and front office the level of care and professionalism as well as being responsive in a timely matter is such a refreshing change from prior providers. I consider dr Goodwin to be a partner in my healthcare, a compassionate listener, and he doesn't have to read notes to remember who I am. He has been someone that I trust and I feel that he really cares and respects my input. The staff is always friendly and is exceptional compared to other providers. I would reccomend Dr. Goodwin and the office in general to anyone. It has been a tough year for me health wise and don't know what I would do without the outstanding care and genuine concern that has been provided to me. Can't say enough what a positive change they have made in my life

Goodwin was amazing! I have never had a better experience with any doctor in my entire life. He answered all of my questions, and made me feel like I'll live to be at least 75. I think you should keep this fellow around for as long as possible.

This was my first visit after being with another Providence Dr. for 20-30 years and I was much impressed and have told others how could Dr. Goodwin was. In particular the previous Dr. over 3 years I asked about pain in my hands and got "probably arthritis" which did nothg for me. Dr. Goodwin referred me to a Dr. [...] who diagnosed it as Carpel tunnel and began treatment immediately.

Previously Dr. [...] was my primary care and I absolutely love her but due to her other duties it became difficult to get timely appts. Dr. Goodwin has been an exceptional replacement I feel like he is almost as frustrated as I am with my condition. He has put me in touch with some extremely helpful resources [...]. I feel like I have a "team" whose goal is to improve my quality of life. [...]
