“When I got hit in the face hard with a softball, doctors gave me medicine to blunt my pain but that was not a cure,” Dr. Goddard recalls. “That made me realize there were other aspects of medicine that were not part of the typical med school curriculum. I wanted to get into my toolbox early on a greater number of methods to help people, especially those that could quickly get to the root cause of their problem.”
Dr. Goddard considers continuing education of utmost importance to his patients and seeks to provide them with the most recent advances in integrative and osteopathic medicine possible.
