Dr. Goodwin

Dr. Pam Goodwin, OBGYN

Pamela Goodwin, M.D.


Dr. Goodwin earned her undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Iowa, and she completed her residency at Iowa as well. She’s been practicing obstetrics and gynecology for 24 years and has been at North Shore Associates in Gynecology and Obstetrics for the past 20.

Dr. Goodwin is Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She maintains a membership with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Dr. Goodwin chose obstetrics and gynecology because she has always been fascinated with the human body and health. As an undergraduate at Iowa, she volunteered in a free medical clinic working mainly with gynecology well-woman visits. During her time in medical school, it became clear to her that becoming an OBGYN was a good fit. Today she feels privileged to help women navigate the changes in their bodies and their health as they age.

Dr. Goodwin lives in Evanston with her husband and 3 children. Outside of work she enjoys biking, gardening, and traveling.


As many of you know Dr. Jean Ruth is leaving NSAGO to make a new beginning in the great Pacific Northwest – she and her family will move to Spokane, Washington later this month.  She has been with us for 3 ½ years and has done an incredible job working with our providers, staff, and especially, the growing patient base she has served. The patient feedback we have received, both in person and with her on-line reviews inform us that she is truly a special doctor. We will all miss Jean and wish her all the best.


E Perelman MD NSAGOThe rest of the NSAGO family will continue to accommodate and care for Dr. Ruth’s patients. Dr. Liz Perelman joined us last year and has become an integral team member and excellent care provider for our patients.  She is available to see patients at our Wilmette and Glenview locations. Likewise Drs. Goodwin, Johnson and Saleh are happy to see patients for ongoing pregnancy care and gynecology visits. New patients are also welcome so feel free to refer friends and relatives.


We are also very happy to welcome Imaan Ansari, MD, who will join NSAGO in August. Dr. Ansari grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. She attended the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and then returned to Chicago for Ob-Gyn residency training at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. We have been very happy to get to know Imaan as a kind and talented physician with superb credentials and a work ethic to match. She will assume Dr. Ruth’s schedule and will have hours in Wilmette and Glenview.
