Dr. Good grew up in Mishawaka, Indiana where he was one of six children. He owned many animals, including three animals, early in his life. As a sophomore in high school, Dr. Good decided to turn his passion of animals into a career and become a veterinarian. He never looked back.
Dr. Good attended Purdue University from ’72 – ’74 and was accepted into the University of Georgia’s College of Veterinary Medicine as a “Two-Year Wonder”. Dr. Good graduated in 1978 and became a practice owner one year later.
Dr. Good is interested in all aspects of medicine and surgery pertaining to dogs and cats. His nearly 30 years of experience, and his efforts to continuously educate himself on the advances in veterinary medicine have made him one of the most respected veterinarians in the Southeast. Dr. Good has won numerous awards including the 1990 Cobb County Veterinarian of the Year, the 1991 Greater Atlanta Veterinarian of the Year, and the 1999 HSMA Veterinarian of the Year.
In 1998, Dr. Good formed the Homeless Pets Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, after he saw a need to create an organization that could assist animal shelters and pet owners in need. In the Atlanta area alone, there are more than 100,000 animals destroyed each year for lack of a home. The Foundation provides critical medical care, food, foster care and comfort to these homeless animals.
In his spare time, Dr. Good enjoys playing basketball, swimming, spending time with his son, and walking his dogs.
