Libertyville, IL |
After years of disappointing experience with other adolescent psychiatrists, we found Dr. Golbin. In a short time, he built trust with our teen and his parents, and created a medication/ therapy plan that created amazing positive change regarding sleep and mood. He is warm, caring and personal rather than robotic in his approach to treatment. Our only regret-that we didn't meet him earlier!

After years of suffering with depression and memory issues treated by my physician I went to Dr. Golbin, he was warm and I found it easy to talk to him about the help I needed. Dr. Golbin, explained test results so I clearly understood how he came to a diagnosis. The medication prescribed is making a huge impact in my ability to sleep through the night without waking, my depression and memory continue to improve. I would not hesitate in recommending Dr. Golbin to anyone.

My experience with Dr. Golbin has been very positive! He always lends a caring, empathetic ear while having your best interest at heart. A doctor who actually cares about his patients and it is clear to see. He is encouraging, supportive, professional, and overall optimistic.

Each of my appointments with Dr. Golbin have allowed for enough time and were constructive, positive appointments. I believe that he is engaged and truly seeks solutions, and is very good at getting to specifics. I have had day and night sleep studies here and the hospitality and professionalism were just great. I also have had therapy &/or hypnosis sessions with Dr. Serge Sorokin, and got alot of insight from these. Together these Drs. cover so much and I like that they integrate their approach

professional and compassionate and has a great staff

Several years ago, I had four sleepless nights in a month. Someone recommended Dr. Golbin to me. He wasted no time conducting a sleep study on me and was able to find the source of the problem. Through prescribing the right treatment and actively counseling me - as well as checking in on my sleep habits - Dr. Golbin has been a wonderful asset in my life as well as a true professional! You will not find a more caring, kind physician who also knows just as much about sleep medicine.

Dr. Golbin is a caring an insightful doctor who takes the time to listen to me and any issues I am having. I never feel rushed and find that he is available when I need to get a hold of him. I like that he continues to work with me until we find a solution to the sleep problems I am having. Very thorough and his office staff is great as well, they know me by name and always greet me with a smile.

Dr. Golbin and team helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life. Their expertise is very strong. The differentiation for me is that they genuinely care about me. When you find that in a doctor you remain loyal. Dr. Golbin calls himself a life coach and he truly is. I would recommend him to anyone in my life..
