I was very anxious about treating my hemorrhoids. I had put it off for six years, but finally knew I needed treatment as I could not tolerate them any longer. Dr. Goldman carefully explained his approach and goal of no pain, and I immediately felt much better. The three separate banding procedures themselves caused absolutely no pain whatsoever. Dr. Goldman did warn me that I may have some minor discomfort, but I barely had any discomfort at all. The extremely mild discomfort I had on two occasions was gone within an hour of each procedure. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Dr. Goldman and his staff were absolutely outstanding. My advice... Do NOT put this off. Life is so much better now!

Dr Goldman is a superb professional in every way along with his staff. They provide a great alternative treatment for hemorrhoids. His staff was always very caring, efficient and professional. I would certainly recommend trying his treatment to deal with this unpleasant subject to avoid surgery.

Dr. Goldman also has a great sense of humor which helps to relax you during a possible stressful time. To make your visit even more pleasant, each members of his staff are very kind and helpful from the time you enter the lobby until you checkout. I would highly recommend Dr. Goldman

Dr. Goldman is wonderful! He explains the procedure thoroughly and allows patients to ask questions. He is extremely knowledgeable about his field of medicine. His wait times for office visits are about 15 minutes or so. His staff is friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. I had an extremely good experience with both Dr. Goldman and his staff. I highly recommend him!

I suffered from an internal hemorrhoid grade 2, an external one grade 4, and a fissure that opened up to the gates of hell. I went to six doctors around Asheville, Hendersonville, and greenville. Not one had a complete non surgical plan that worked on all three problems. Dr. Goldman patiently listened to my issues took time to understand how it was effecting my quality of life. He then presented. A three part non surgical treatment to fix all three. He was accurate and responsible in describing how each part would help cure me. He has good bedside manner and is easy to talk to. He keeps things lighthearted and works fast. I can't say enough good and positive things. I'm on the healing end of my last procedure and it's a glorious feeling to know all my problems will soon be gone. The staff is top notch and friendly. Caitlin is patient and able to help you understand insurance coverage and make sure it works as it should. Avoid the surgical room go to Alan!

If you are looking for someone to be your BFF, Dr. Goldman is not the guy. But if you want expertise and someone to address your colo-rectal issues in a professional and effective way, then you've found the right guy. I've been to see him twice for my hemorrhoids and he has taken care of my issues effectively. I don't need a friend. I want a qualified doctor ... and Dr. Goldman is knowledgeable and effective at what he does.

The banding procedures performed were done during an office visit, were painless, and enabled me to not have any downtime. Even though I had to have multiple procedures done over a few months, the benefit of not having hemorrhoid surgery was invaluable.

I never knew about Hemorrhoids, until after child birth. I started having stomach issues a few years later due to my gallbladder and it made my hemorrhoids worse as time went on. It is very uncomfortable on a day to day basis, especially when you have responsibilities to tend to. I came to Dr. Goldman for the ligation treatment vs horrific surgery. I can tell you it has been a great experience to feel less irritated by the swelling and pain/discomfort that hemorrhoids cause, all by just a simple rubber band. I recommend you put away the shyness and get help, its so worth it. Cant forget to mention how amazing the staff can make you feel too. HCA is the way!!

Dr. Goldman took the time to explain my diagnosis, the treatment he was administering, the prognosis, and the expected recovery time. He answered all of my questions and we even had a few laughs. I'd highly recommend and I'll be seeing him again should I have any flare ups.

Worst bedside manner of any doctor I have ever encountered. Literally walked out of the room while I was in the middle of asking a question. Spent TWO minutes in the room then immediately left (with every appt). Gave basically no explanation of what he was doing/why it needed to be done. Did not AT ALL communicate the level of pain or what to expect after the procedure. Gave me no instructions on how to recover- I had to research everything myself to figure out what to do- which OTC meds to take, to prop up feet, use aloe, take sitz baths, etc. First banding procedure was painful but bearable, second was miserable. Had to go in for an emergency appointment due to pain and excessive bleeding where he informed me that after a week the band was still there and applied some kind of cream (W/ no explanation) that burned and had me bawling on the floor in the fetal position. If I had any other options, I would never go back to his practice. His staff is nice, that’s about it.

Dr. Goldman is the greatest!!!! I have suffered with painful hemorrhoids for years. During my consultation Dr. Goldman explained all that needed to be done and how many appointments it would take for everything to look and feel normal. He was kind, informative, and gentle. He provided exactly what he said he would and I look and feel great! It was an in office procedure and I should have done this a long time ago.

After decades of living with hemorrhoid and the discomfort and embarrassment that goes with them, I finally decided to use Google to see if there was a non-surgical way to remove them. I did some research and decided to check into the CRH O’Regan System. Their website referred me to Dr. Alan Goldman at the Hemorrhoid Centers of America and I made an initial appointment to learn about the procedure. Not only did they explain the procedure, after the exam they were able to start the treatment (
