Review for Dr. Singer

Excellent bedside manners. I was prescribed a new migraine medication, Aimovig. I had a severe allergic reaction. He checked on me the next day and came up with a sound game plan for trying another new medication so if i have another ER related allergic reaction, it will not be as reactive.

I saw Dr. Goldenberg after another doctor in the practice referred me to him for kidney stone surgery. He took time to explain my condition, discuss the options, and help me make an informed decision. I had a great surgical outcome. He has a great personality and appears to really care.
