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.

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.

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.
