We can not recommend Dr. Golkar. Dr. G. did not review the culture results of intestional abcess which indicated that the antibiotic given was resistant to the bacteria present. After discharge, he ordered a f/u CT scan. He did not read this report for 2 weeks after multiple calls to his office. The abcess returned, but he ordered the same Rx and again did not review the culture result from 4 wks earlier!! This resulted in an additional 5 day Hospital stay and 4 weeks of IV therapy.

Dr. Golkar performed an inguinal hernia repair on me and I am TOTALLY delighted with all aspects of the procedure and experience and would use him again.
