Dr. Goldstein is nonpareil in his surgical and communication skills. He put my husband, Harvey and I, at ease almost immediately at our initial 2 hour meeting. He explained each step of the upcoming operation and patiently answered all our questions. He saw me daily, following my cancerous lung lobe surgery, even on Christmas Eve and Christmas. Read his career history and become impressed with his accomplishments. We recommend him to any one facing lung surgery. He's absolutely great!

My father needed a triple heart bypass surgery and after meeting Dr. Goldstein I was finally able to get some good sleep that night. His reassuring smile and knowledge of the procedure made me confident he was the surgeon for the job. I recommend watching the videos he has online. The entire Diana family appreciates and will refer Dr Goldstein to others in the future.

On May 7th 2016, Dr. Goldstein saved my life. When no other Cardiologist Surgeon was available, Dr. Goldstein, after just coming home from an 11-hour surgery at 4am, turned back around to the hospital and completed my life saving emergency aorticA dissection surgery. At 47 years old, I can only humbly say thank you for allowing me to watch my kids grow up and have kids of their own. You are truly my hero. You are the very best!

I have a very direct, honest, and thorough approach in communicating with all of my patients and their families. I typically spend a great deal of time with new patients so that I can understand them as a complete person, not just a disease entity. Please see the video on my website to get a better sense of my approach and care philosophy.
