Michael Goodhope, DO

Dr. Goodhope attended medical school at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, MO, followed by an internship and residency in family medicine at Botsford General Hospital in Farmington Hills, MI. After completing residency training in 2003, he joined the United States Air Force and remained on active duty until 2008. He was deployed to Afghanistan in 2007 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. He joined Rapid City Medical Center’s Family Medicine Department in 2010.

An osteopathic doctor (DO) is a fully licensed physician trained in a comprehensive approach to treating patients. Rather than addressing specific symptoms or illnesses, they look at the underlying causes of disease and the overall picture of a patient’s health to help them achieve and maintain a healthy life.

His father, a retired internal medicine physician, had a significant influence on his decision to practice medicine. Initially studying physical therapy, he ultimately decided osteopathic family medicine would allow him to help patients in the way he wanted to practice.

In his free time, he enjoys biking, skiing, hiking, gardening and spending time with his children.

He took the time to talk with me and came up with a temporary plan to try to ease the pain and a long term plan with a referral to a rheumatologist. He is always personable and I always feel comfortable and informed when I visit. Shout out as well to his nurse Cait, she’s the best! BTW, the treatment we did today has eased the pain substantially!
