Patient Comments (10)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Golden is amazing! I was referred to him by my primary care doctor when I had rotator cuff injuries. Not only did those injuries get treated, but he also replaced my hip and knee. Both surgeries were a piece of cake. Dr. Golden explained the process, kept his word and did beautiful work. From my perspective he's a rockstar of orthopedic surgery. Like him, his staff he exemplary. They all go above and beyond to care for their patients. I've already highly recommended Dr. Golden.

Dr. Golden performed a total hip replacement for me and the result was far better than anyone thought possible. He was pleasant, clear and concise in all our interactions. To the extent that it can be, the entire process was a breeze. However, he didn't sugarcoat anything and his office was diligent in keeping in touch with me and making sure I was well prepared both prior to the procedure and during the healing process. I heartily recommend him.

Not only is Dr. Golden one of the best knee surgeons in town, but he's an unexpectedly really nice guy. When's the last time you had a surgeon apologize for keeping you waiting 15 minutes (never)??? He was my "second opinion". He took his time to explore the best options for my particular set of issues. Thanks to Dr. Golden, I avoided 2 total knee replacements. Instead, had two less invasive partial knee replacements. Now I can get back to doing all the sports activities I love FASTER.
in Valencia, CA |
Dr. Golden is amazing! He takes the time to listen to the patient's concerns and ensures that all questions have been answered satisfactorily. He is never rushed and he makes you feel as though you're his only patient. In addition to his wonderful bedside manner, he is a phenomenal surgeon. I had a double knee replacement two weeks ago and the recovery so far has been nearly flawless. I originally came to Dr. Golden for a second opinion and I'm so glad I did. He is the best, hands down.
in Compton, CA |
Dr Golden has been very personable and assuring. His interaction with me as a patient has been appreciative. Highly recommended.
in Calabasas, CA |
DR. Golden is amazing. My surgery went very well and he was very open with me about the painful recovery so there were no surprises. I am in my third week after surgery and I get stronger and more flexible every day. I highly recommend him.

I felt very safe trusting Dr. Golden with my surgery and never worried for a moment.
in Santa Monica, CA |
Shoulder was in immense pain & rotated back with my arm hanging. The doc told me it had probably always looked that way...not true plus refused to look at my other shoulder (which was beginning to hurt). Out of the blue he said surgery would not help. He told me I had wasted my time & gave me anti-inflammatories. After some biofeedback treatments at my chiropractor's office, my shoulder finally moved back in position plus an MRI, I have a LABRAL TEAR at 4-6 o'clock. Go see someone else.
in Canyon Country, CA |
Dr Golden has "patience with his patients." At my inital consult, having done some research online about "arthritis + hip repl" I had some questions. After consult, I began researching the procedure method & had many questions. His assistant/scheduler, Cheri B.was very helpful. Saw Dr Golden 2wks prior to surgery for knee pain in my other leg, he answered my new questions & put my mind at ease. Saw him morning of-prior to surgery, and then when he popped in at 630a the following day.
