Dr. Golbin helped me tremendously. I was suffering from not sleeping for a month. Dr. Golbin listened to me, came up with the strategy and gave me hope that I will be OK. Visiting his office, speaking to his staff was always a pleasant experience. Thank you doctor for giving me my life back!

I have suffered for years with bi-polar and extremely poor sleep habits. Dr. Golbin was the first doctor to address the whole body instead of the symptom. He took the time to go through my entire medical history to devise the best plan for me, explaining in detail his approach and addressing the most pressing issues first. The sleep apnea test revealed problems that I had never been aware of that were preventing me from getting a good nights rest and affected my overall health as well,

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

Dr. Golbin is treating for sleep apnea. The length of my sleep at nigh has improved. He is also treating me for falling asleep during the day doing tings such as seeing a movie or play or attending a concert. There has been significant improvement with that problem.

Dr Golbin has been the best psychiatrist that I have ever had. I went through so many different doctors before seeing Dr Golbin. He always has the patient’s best interest in mind. I have been nothing but EXTREMELY satisfied with his treatment for my issues. I have vastly improved since being under the care of Dr Golbin. There are not many doctors like him.

Dr. Golbin has been treating my sleep apnea for over 8 months. His thorough analysis of test results and his ability to translate them into understandable terms and recommend solutions that actually work is remarkable. My health has improved markedly due to following his advice and treatment. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Sometimes the road to getting well is long and full of potholes, but it is much easier to reach the goal when you have a person you can trust indirectly holding your hand all the way to recovery. I would recommend Dr. Alexander Golbin to everyone who wants to get better, not just better, get well!

I have been seeing Dr. Golbin for over 6 years for a pretty severe sleep disorder due to a brain injury. Dr. Golbin is a caring, compassionate Dr. who takes the time to listen and discuss options for treatment. Through therapy and medication he has made my life, and sleep much more manageable. . I wish I had met him sooner. I would highly recommend this caring man who is patient, kind and knows his profession well.

Doctor Golbin is easily the best doctor I have ever worked with. He cares about every individual patient and doesn’t try to solve your problems with a new prescription, he listens and works with you. He knows what he’s talking about and takes the time to explain things so they’re easily understood. I am grateful for everything he has done for me, he truly changed my life.

The doctor never asked for my son's medical history when we visited the clinics. This was a very poor judgement on the doctor's side and could posed biased conclusion on any findings. Also, after the medical procedure EEG, which costs us $600 out of pocket, we never received any diagnostics and findings. After the EEG, he didn't give us any real medical prescription, but only prescribed herbal supplement. The supplement didn't help with the symptoms at all.
