"Good doctor, good attitude, got right to the point and was very positive and knew what he was talking about."

"Dr.Godwin has a lot of energy and clearly has an immediate idea about how to treat a situation. The office was pleasant and the nurse was excellent, plus I only had to wait about 10 minutes in the waiting room. It seems that Dr.Godwin may be a little rushed either because he's so high energy or he may have a long list of patients to see, both of which are positives overall. Although it was only my first time meeting him, I would not hesitate to return or to recommend him."
