I have been seeing Dr. Goldstein for over a year. I travel for work and his staff especially Myra are always going the extra mile for me and my family. I cannot recommend DR. G enough he listens and spends extra time if need be.

Dr. Goldstein has been my doctor for over 30 years. Without his help, I would not be able to function (I am a physician). I recommend him highly. He listens, is compassionate, respectful and responsive. 6 stars!

I have seen Dr. G for several years. I have many problems. A few times I have needed to see him ASAP. After talking to him his staff would always fit me into his schedule for that day. Years ago he gave me his cell number incase his office was closed & I had an emerg. I never intended to use it,...more
