in Boynton Beach, FL |
Great office staff. Everyone is super efficient and fast. Everything is explained thoroughly. Had cataract surgery. Facility where surgery was performed followed up following day to make sure everything was fine. No complaints with doctor or staff. Never had to wait more than 5 minutes when going for an appointment.

Fantastic doctor, fantastic office. On our first visit, he explained surgery, scheduled it and all post op visits, called in scripts for post op medications and gave me certificate for discount on one of them, answered all my questions, and faxed documents to my doctor so I could get medical clearance. Not rushed and put me totally at ease. Very professional and did not try to upsell. Got his name from my opthamologist who had Dr. Goldman do his surgery. Excellent.

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.
