thanks to dr goldstein getting me to the right people saved my life. i had been in and out of fairfax hospital numerous times and they couldn't find out what was wrong . dr goldstein and his staff always show a great deal of concern for not only me but all his patients that i notice. i would recommend dr goldstein to anyone that would need his services and if anyone has a complaint with dr goldstein and his staff then they have problems with themselves.

Dr. Goldstein has literally made me cry two appointments in a row. Today was the last straw. I wasn't doing anything wrong, just simply asking about my treatment and expressing my concerns about interactions (I have many different illnesses) and he just gets totally irrationally angry and starts yelling at me. It wasn't unexpected; he's always this way with me. Very irritable, slouches back in his chair with his eyes shut. He told me my illnesses were my fault and there's no cure. Done.

Dr Goldstein is a wonderful and caring Doctor. Yes, the waiting time could carry on a little more than usual, but once its my turn and I'm in his office he makes it ALL about me. My doctor listens to my concerns and guides me as to what I can do to live a comfortable life. Plus he has a great team in his office. I wouldn't want another doctor.
