Jackson, CA |
I called to find out the cost of a vasectomy, and was quoted a rate of $1397.20 by Pam. When we got the bill two months later, it was $1996, $600 more than what I was told on the phone. We tried to argue the rate, but were told over and over again that we should never have been given a quote on the phone. This, however, was not our fault. Regardless, we had no recourse. Even though we were told a price of $1397, we were still held responsible to pay $600 more than this. We are still paying.

Dr. Golden was really friendly and relates to what I was experiencing immediately! In addition to drinking water, he told me the key to prevent kidney stones was to avoid "oxalate" containing products & he gave me a list of foods with "high/moderate/low" oxalate content. I came in thinking that cranberry juice would prevent it. But after learning from him to drink lemonade instead, I removed cranberry juice from my list of beverages to drink to prevent kidney stones. I'd recommend him to anyone!

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.

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.
