As an osteopathic physician, Dr. Goddard seeks to help patients develop attitudes and lifestyles that don’t just fight illness but also help prevent disease.
In our supportive environment, Dr. Goddard obtains a comprehensive medical history and performs a thorough physical exam that enables him to understand the physical, medical, and emotional trauma in the patient’s body. Understanding the cause of the patient’s illness and/or pain is essential to creating an individualized treatment plan. Using natural, holistic, and integrative medical methods, Dr. Goddard applies his knowledge and expertise to create an integrated treatment plan for each patient’s specific needs. This also allows him to teach you how you can better help yourself in the healing process.
Dr. Goddard seeks to understand the root of his patient’s problem(s) instead of just treating the symptoms.

Benefits of having Outpatient Surgery
Outpatient Surgery offers two major advantages to patients:
Comfort - Patients can recuperate in the comfort and privacy of their own home, which most find to be the most pleasant way to recover.
Cost - There is no hospitalization involved, outpatient surgery is lower in cost than traditional surgery involving costly hospital stays. Please call our office with questions regarding insurance networks and providers, obtaining insurance authorization as needed or any other cost related question you may have.
Athletes such as Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Ray Lewis, Peyton Manning, and Hines Ward have all undergone platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, so let’s take a closer look at this treatment that is thought to speed the healing of injuries.
Torn tendons, muscles, and ligaments plague athletes in many types of sports. In attempts to help heal the wounded tissue, some athletes, both amateur and professional, have turned to PRP therapy.
Treatment involves drawing a small vial of the patient’s blood, about 30 milliliters, and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the other components. The concentrated platelets are then injected at the site of the patient’s injury. In theory, the growth factors that platelets secrete (not including human growth hormone) spur tissue recovery. Recent studies, as shown in the May 2013 edition of The American Journal of Sports Medicine, have shown PRP to be an effective and successful treatment option.
