Inverness, FL |
I would never recommend this man! When he worked in Citrus County he almost killed me because he refused to listen to my concerns. He kept shoveling Valium at me and was adament I could not have a fistula. After finally going to another County I saw a surgeon who quickly admitted me. I not only had a fistula but he put a stitch through my small intestine!! 3 inches of gangrenous colon had to be removed. I am alive no thanks to this unprofessional individual.

Great surgeon. Explained everything prior to surgery. Friendly and efficient office staff.

Dr. Golkar was very straight forward in describing the type of surgery needed to remove my early stage pancreatic cancer. He explained why everyone considered it a "big" surgery and what risks where involved. He explained how the same operation had been performed on other patients and the results achieved. I would trust him with any future surgery I might need in the future.

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.
