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 is the only physician I've ever had who has expressed his understanding that there are other factors involved in my continued smoking than being weak willed or a person who doesn't care about her health. He has never shamed me about it. As one who is more than self-shaming about being a smoker that has led me to feeling respected as a whole person.

The receptionist was "whispering" to me at intake while looking at the computer screen so as not to interfere with the phone conversation of the receptionist next to her. That could be improved for me.
