Patient Testimonials

Very professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. Takes the time to go over diagnostics like MRIs etc A breath of fresh air. Medicine the way it was intended. I wish I could find a primary physician as knowledgeable and patient centered as Dr Goodwin and his staff.

KELLY DONAHUE M. | Dec 08, 2022
Dr Goodwin spent more time and effort than any other doctor I have experienced in analyzing and explaining to me the details of my issues and options for moving forward. It was very refreshing and much appreciated!

I love regenexx! I finally feel like I’m actually healing my injuries the right way & not just masking them! Bonus, no surgery! I can’t say enough about the amazing staff Nina, Jen & Dr. Josh Goodwin, they are all so incredible. If I could give them more stars I would.

I can't say enough about the level of service and expertise. Dr Goodwin is the best!! The staff is wonderful and very helpful each time I have been to the office.

Pleasant staff and Dr was very thorough and informative!

RHONDA P. | Oct 25, 2022
He did a PRP procedure on my shoulder and labral tear and they work. I trusts that he'll do the same with my knees. Dr. Goodwin is very knowledgeable and has so much experience re PRP and stem cell. He explained everything before he does the procedure. People should consult with him before considering the "knife." He will honestly tell you if you are a candidate for the PRP or Stem Cell procedure or not.

JULIANA M. | Oct 20, 2022
Best show & explain on my spine — thank you!!!

KATHARINE O. | Oct 18, 2022

They have been great about answering my questions and getting me scheduled quickly.

JESSICA V. | Sep 24, 2022
One of the best physicians I have been able to see both in my personal life and that of a paramedic. I would and do reccomend Dr. Goodwin and his team to anyone who is having joint pain or other correctable issues. I have had work done on my shoulder, back, and knee. He keeps me healthy for work and I wouldn't seek care from anyone else.

JAMES W. | Sep 21, 2022
Dr. Goodwin is extremely thorough & doesn't "rush" through your appointment. His office team is amazing. Lauren & Jenn are extremely amazing. Hands down, I would definitely recommend Dr. Goodwin & his entire staff to ANYONE.

MIA M. | Sep 15, 2022
During the whole appointment I felt as if I was held by the hand by caring people who really knew what they were doing, There was no hurry anytime and I was attended to with their full concentration, answering my questions as they came up to my full satisfaction. It completely took away my nervousness and to my surprise I was able to undergo the procedure very calmly.

Elisabeth N. | Sep 14, 2022
Dr Goodwin is an outstanding sports medicine doctor. I appreciated his time and excellent therapy including follow- up cares, and it is always nice when we find a doctor that actually cares and would like to do the best. I had a big meniscus tear, there was an extra space between and had stem cell therapy. After three months, the tear has been closing, and I am able to do the sports now. Thank you so much Dr. Goodwin and the team.

Yoshimi G. | Sep 14, 2022
DR GOODWIN & staff are very professional and really care that’s why I fly 2000 miles for treatments . thank you

MARK D. | Sep 13, 2022
So far so good

EUGENE C. | Sep 12, 2022
Knowing another doctor will have to operate, Dr. Goodwin took an extraordinary amount of time explaining my injury, and options, then referred me to an outside surgeon.

MARK B. | Sep 07, 2022
Dr. Goodwin and his staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and professional! Dr. Goodwin spends a great amount of time listening and explaining everything to his patients. Plus, he’s very punctual and doesn’t make you wait in his office for hours before seeing you for an appointment! I would highly recommend Dr. Goodwin to anyone having spinal issues.

AMY F. | Sep 07, 2022
Dr. Goodwin and staff are very respectful, knowledgeable, and straightforward. They don't sugarcoat, or predict outlandish high hopes. But, they are practical; the knee injections provide real relief (some types, more long-lasting than others), and they are helping me be realistic about the future of my knees. I appreciate their help.

KAY S. | Sep 06, 2022
Dr Goodwin and his staff are always very professional and friendly. Dr Goodwin takes the time to answer any and all questions and explains the procedures in detail. I have had excellent results at Regenexx.

Dr. Goodwin gave intelligent and thorough explanations on what he was doing, he was an active listener with real answers. I would recommend him to anyone.

KATHERINE P. | Aug 16, 2022
Dr Goodwin was Amazing! Never in my life have I had a doctor listen to me the way he did. He listened to all details regarding my situation, he explained everything on my level, and really took the time to explain everything (MRIs, what the ultrasound was showing, options available to me). He was friendly, cared, and really listened. Im blown away. I hope my upcoming treatments are just as enjoyable and Im sure they will be. He has the word “Good” and “Win” in his last name and he lives up to both! Thank you Dr. Goodwin!
