Dr Goldman has "gold hands"... very skillful oftalmologist. He performed cataract surgery in my both eyes with great success. He is a very pleasant young professional that treats his patients with dignity and kindness. His office personal are also very competent and helpful. They treat you with a smile and simpathy. I am very pleased that my Medicare doctor referred me to dr. Goldman's office. Thank you Dr. Goldman. You made my eyes see well again. May 2017.

Dr Goldman was amazing. He treated me like I was one of his family members and after seeing him, I will never go to any other practice. He gave me plenty of reassurance and resolved my eye problems.

i'm a diabetic and have gone to this doctor for years .I went to get a exam my eyes and refracted for new eyeglasses.the girl said that he will not dilate my eyes of refract for new eye glasses. i complianed and he asked me to leave i travel 25 miles to see him. very unprofessional of him the girl told me that if i want to a refraction i should go did to an optomotist why did i go to this doctor for.
It was explained to Mr. Selss why he couldn't have a refraction. Instead of understanding, he paced around the waiting room yelling "this guy's an idiot". He was then asked to leave.
