Renowned for his expertise in diagnosing and treating adolescents and adults, Dr. Goodman has since retired his practice after 40 years of serving his local community. Inspired to pursue a career in medicine by his father who worked as a physician, he earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Doctor of Medicine from Johns Hopkins University in 1950 and 1954 respectively. He later accepted an internship at Brooklyn Jewish Hospital, and thereafter completed a residency in internal medicine at Baltimore City Hospital and a residency in cardiology at Philadelphia General Hospital. He began his career at the Group Health Association between 1962 and 1970 before joining Drs. Norman Bohrer and Leonard Appel in private practice. In addition, he found success as a senior attending physician at Washington Hospital Center and Prince Georges General Hospital beginning in 1970 and the Doctors Hospital in 1980.
Throughout his career, Dr. Goodman remained committed to research pertaining to the influence of drugs on the many patients he saw throughout the years. As a result, he served as the chairperson of the Maryland Medical Society’s committee on drugs, established a course for primary care physicians in drug abuse management, helped to develop a drug abuse prevention program for the public school system, and authored a book titled “Millie: A Cautionary Tale of America’s Longest War,” which chronicles the devastating consequences of the war on drugs. In addition to his professional career, he served as a regimental surgeon with the U.S. military in Korea from 1956 to 1958, joined the Marylanders Against Handgun Abuse organization in 1994 as a board director, and contributed as a founding member of the Maryland Citizens Health Initiative. He is proud to be recognized as a Fellow of the American College of Physicians and has maintained additional professional affiliations with the American Medical Association and the Prince Georges County Medical Society.
