My primary care physician referred me to Dr. Carl S. Goldstein, because my hypertension required treatment by a specialist. My hypertension has been treated and managed successfully for approximately 20 years. I have absolute confidence in Dr. Goldstein's knowledge and exceptional skills, and I very impressed with the compassionate care that he provides to his patients.
