Dr. Golant performed two surgeries on my right arm over the course of two days. He is confident, professional, polite, well spoken and a master of his craft. I have had many visits since having surgery, and Dr. Golant and his staff have treated me and my family extremely well. I am extremely impressed with his bed side manor. Dr. Golant spent a great deal of time listening to my concerns, and explaining my injury’s and recovery to me. I’m 6 months into recovery and have regained full use of my arm. I have recommended him to several friends and family members, and would highly recommend Dr. Golant as an orthopedic surgeon to anyone in need.

As unfortunate as I was to fall and break my hip, I was so fortunate to meet Dr. Golant in NYP hospital. He is a very knowledgeable doctor. He has amazing approach with patients. He is very caring and compassionate. Talking to him gives me confidence and assurance to a fast recovery. I would recommend him without any doubts to anyone who needs an orthopaedic surgeon.

I recommend Dr. Golant to all my friends and family who need an Orthopedic Surgeon. My husband has been his patient for years and he was the first doctor who understood my husband’s injury, as well as his competitive nature for sports, gradually getting him back to sports. During appointments Dr. Golant takes the time to explain and give options as well as answer all questions and address all concerns. Dr. Golant is knowledgeable, empathetic, and skilled.

As an athlete, in my 40’s, with a long history it was comforting to find Dr. Golant. While all other doctors told me to stop competing, Dr. Golant and his staff came up with solutions to keep me going and excelling. Unbelievable bed side manner, excellent communication, as well as the ability to relate, assured me I was in the right hands. I enjoy tossing my ideas his way and having him steer me in the right direction. While I am sure he is very busy, I always feel like I am his only patient. I am competing again knowing that I am in good hands.

We saw Golant based off of the wonderful reviews a total of 2 times- both times the wait was horrendous ( nearly 2 hours). Both times the appt. felt very rushed. Both times it seemed as though the doctor was seeing 2 patients at once in between his oddly position room divided by a curtain for two patients. I also agree with the reviewer that mentioned that the doctor takes phone calls and looks at his phone often, this is very true and does not help with the aspect of feeling rushed or disregard to say the least. What bothers me the most was that the family member I came here with is elderly and Dr. Golant was a extremely quick in scheduling A Rotary cup shoulder replacement (a serious surgery). - his eagerness to schedule the surgery was very concerning. We ended up going for a second opinion and that doctor told us he would NEVER suggest something like that for a person of his age due to difficulty in recovery - wouldn't recommend Dr. Golant, Clearly he's out to make a quick buck.

I would never recommend this guy, and I'm not sure how this he has gotten so many good reviews so I decided to share my experiences with Dr. Golant: Terrible bed side manner - he literally took a phone call regarding a storage facility during my first visit. Also, he would often check his phone during the few times he actually met with me during subsequent visits. Regarding my follow-up visits; I saw his physician assistants far more times than I did he, the actual doctor/surgeon (of which there were 3 different PA's during the several months I was in his charge). Finally, during my last visit he asked me specifically what percentage of "loss" I felt I was still experiencing following his surgery; a wildly inappropriate question for a "specialist" to ask his patient. I really wish I chose another doctor. Honestly, I have zero confidence in his work on my shoulder.

To Dr. Alexander Golant and staff. Dr. Golant is an angel, my angel. He operated me from Jan 13 2020 and Sept 2019. He is humugusly blessed by God. If it was because of me I would give him not a 5 stars, but 10! Everything of him is excellent! My knee surgery and shoulder did not have scars and both surgeries came out perfect. Dr. Golant is a true miracle. His staff are all absolutely wonderful and so very helpful. My deepest thanks goes also to his assistant whom was as wonderful and blessed as Dr. Alexander Golant. Also thanks to Prebysterian Hospital for all their wonderful help and such wonderful hearts. My appreciation will always be present. Thank you from the depth of my heart to you all.

He's amazing! With my grandparents getting older the past couple of years I've been to quite a few doctors and most were condescending, dismissive, and had such big heads I was surprised they got through the door. Doctor Alexander Golant is an exceptional doctor who is capable, caring, a fantastic listener, and phenomenal at explaining your options without pressuring you one way or another. His team and facilities are top notch and I have nothing bad to say about any part of my process! 10 out of 10, would recommend!

I cannot thank Dr.Golant and his team enough. Prior to my surgery (KNEE ARTHROSCOPIC SURGERY) I had an overabundance of pain 24/7. Two weeks after the surgery I was able to sleep and walk without limping. Dr. Golant gave me my life back and I am forever grateful. Dr. Golant was confident that I would do well. He was 100% correct. I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Golant thank you. The entire team provided the highest level care.

Dr. Golant had helped me through an incredibly difficult surgery for my bucket -handle tear on my right knee. MRI scans told him that the chances of saving my meniscus may be quite low, however he strongly stated to me that since I am young, he will try his utmost to save the meniscus in order to help me live a pain-free life in the later years to come. I strongly recommend Dr. Golant, who greatly helped me set realistic expectations and decide on a plan of action to take pre and post-operation.

I am one of Dr. Golant's current patient. I had a terrible tear on my right shoulder which led to rotator cuff surgery. I was very nervous and scared, but Dr. Golant had the ability to make me feel at ease. He was very realistic when it came to expectations and what I needed to do in order to make the process smooth and effective. My surgery was in November and it went very well. I have regain almost all of my motion in my shoulder. I am pain-free and feeling like my normal self again!

I suffered a serious injury to my left shoulder requiring surgery while training in the police academy. The only option I had to keep my job was to have surgery to repair the tears I had in my shoulder. Dr. Golant was referred to me as a great orthopedic surgeon and far surpassed the recommendation I received about him. My shoulder, after rehab, is stronger than before my injury and I was able to complete my training and become a Police Officer. Dr. Golant saved my career. Thanks Dr. Golant!!!
