Dr. Golbin is an excellent psychiatrist. One who listens, thinks critically and doesn’t just plug little tidbits of information into DSM diagnoses. He has treated me as an equal in the the healthcare relationship and has been very helpful in reversing damage done by other psychiatrists. He has been helpful with sleep apnea and CPAP issues as well.

It is not an understatement to say that Dr. Golbin saved my life. From the moment I walked in he treated me like family. He has been honest, kind, and compassionate…not to mention he is one of the top professionals in his field. He is wis with not only experience but up to date with current medical practices. There are not enough words to describe how thankful I am for him and his whole staff. Thank you, Dr. Golbin.

There is something to be said for intuition. From the moment I met Dr. Golbin, my gut told me to stop looking, “you found him”! His style is refreshing. He doesn’t look at me as if I was a scientific puzzle to solve. Rather, he recognizes my uniqueness at the human level and builds the partnership needed to both better diagnose my condition and to give more effective feedback to me. He is always very timely with appointments. I’ve never been rushed in any way. He will be the first to tell you that he is not a mixologist at a saloon. Prescribing the most effective solutions is paramount to him, he’s not one to “see what happens”. Dr. Golbin’s tremendously vast background, thoroughness and true care for his patients make it easy for me to highly recommend him.

The field of psychiatry seems to be filled with doctors who want to throw darts at a wall to figure out if random sets of medication will work for the patient. Dr. Golbin is not like that in any way and it is a breath of fresh air. He is interested in actually helping you get better and not just seeing if a random assortment of medication will alleviate your problems. He is considerate, thorough, and an expert on how the brain functions. His experience is an asset and I would recommend him to anyone that is trying to manage their mental health demons.

From the very first minutes of the visit, Dr. Golbin manages to create an atmosphere of trust, keeping a very helpful balance between strictly medical issues and empathy, understanding his patients on a basic human level. Given his field of expertise, it builds a doctor/patient partnership so needed when dealing with health issues. Certainly, ready to recommend Dr. Golbin, especially to people for whom these qualities of his are of great importance.

Dr. Golbin has such a kind heart and so much knowledge. I believe he truly saved my daughter’s life. I definitely recommend the sleep study, etc. The data allowed him to get her on an effective combination of meds so quickly. He is truly a godsend!

Speaking as a family member of one of Dr. Golbin's patients who has dealt with issues for the past 20+ years, the whole experience has truly made a difference in our lives since the first appointment with him approx. 2 years ago. We finally understand so much more about what we're dealing with because of Dr. Golbin. I would absolutely recommend him to family and friends.

If you don't want to go from doctor to doctor looking for answers, then come to see Dr. Golbin. This doctor will assess your whole body and he will evaluate your symptoms, deepest fears and concerns. He will not offer heavy medications, but he will work with you and your family family if necessary. Dr. Golbin helped my husband understand and resolve a lot of issues. We are truly very thankful.

Dr. Golbin has been an answer to prayer, truly! Our teenager had been having trouble with sleep, and we were out of options for how to help him. Dr. Golbin gave us hope! He is a brilliant doctor with an amazing background of experience, and he knew exactly how to treat our son's sleep issues. In fact, he asked questions about our son's early development and autism to get a clear and thorough picture of the case. We learned so much as Dr. Golbin put the pieces of the puzzle together for us! Dr. Golbin is also very friendly and sympathetic to our child's struggles. We feel very much at ease with Dr. Golbin and always look forward to our next visit!

Dr Golbin treated my depression/anxiety for many years. He is a kind, attentive, caring and sensitive doctor who will listen and address your needs. I was in a very bad place due to misdiagnosis and taking the wrong meds, and Dr Golbin helped me get onto the medicine that was right for me. He is a sleep medicine specialist but he was excellent giving me some tough love and lots of support treating my very specific issues. I could not recommend him more highly.

Finally i've found a great sleep doctor! Dr. Golbin is a brilliant, very informed sleep doctor. Actually, everyone at this facility is extremely courteous and very professional. Dr. Golbin does not have the "one size fits all approach". He takes the time to talk to you, suggest possible tests to insure a proper and exact diagnosis which provides each patient with a custom treatment plan. I can't say enough about Dr. Golbin except I wish I found him earlier. This is the first time i'm confident i
