Dangerous dermatologist. They burned my skin with laser not once but twice. I was scared for life. I urge you NOT to use this doctor. Plus, they are very unprofessional. Do not put your skin at risk with this negligent office.

Waited a good 45 minutes in a mostly empty office for him to tell me I had "weird" scars and that I should see a plastic surgeon. He is very, very bad at socializing and not at all helpful, friendly, or even useful.

I recently met with Dr Goldberg for an annual examination. I would not recommend him as I felt the exam was not conducted properly and his complete lack of interest was evident from the moment he walked in the door. I followed up about a medication and never received a response from his office. Very unprofessional.

Too many desks to go through to give the same information to all. Disinterested staff. You wait forever for an appointment and then wait some more at the appointment.

Dr. Goldberg was very kind and answered my questions with care. It made my procedure time as pleasant as could be. I hate going but knowing he and his caring staff are there makes it ok.
