Elk Grove, CA |
Dr. Golden performed my vasectomy 4 days ago. The procedure itself took less than ten minutes and was pain free. His demeanor is down to earth, he was very personable and the procedure could not have gone better. I would recommend him for any man for this procedure. His staff was great with me, and my recovery has been excellent so far.
in Las Vegas, NV |
My survey is when Dr. Golden was located and practicing in Las Vegas, while I was his patient. I feel he did some unwanted/un-neded surgeries on me.
