Very pleased with his colonoscopy procedure- no complications or other issues from the exam. He is friendly and answers questions, but does tend to be a little quick in his answers. Overall, very pleased with his professionalism.

Dr. Goldberg is the definition of an ideal physician. He Is very personable, his bedside manner is very calm and caring. He listens to everything you have to say, and never seems in a rush to see the next patient. He is very thorough and careful. I recommend him to everyone I know. The staff is very friendly and nice which is a massive bonus because in most medical offices, this is definitely not the case. As a doctor myself I give them 10 stars. Other medical office should take notes!

No matter what you have going on Dr Goldberg always helps to put my mind at ease. He clearly cares for his patients and as someone who has a lot on my plate at the moment it makes all the difference. I have already sent two patients to see Dr Goldberg and they feel the same way!

Dr. Howard Goldberg is an excellent gastroenterologist in the DMV metropolitan area. He has been my physician for over 4 years. He is timely, efficient, and ensures that your medical concerns are addressed. His staff is also very personable and makes you feel special. I strongly recommend Dr. Goldberg to anyone seeking a specialist in the area.

Only gave one star since zero stars isn't an option. This person was outrageously condescending and dismissive, wouldn't look at the test results from my recent hospitalization for gastrointestinal distress, ignored my paperwork from another gastroenterologist about an ongoing condition, threw my paperwork in my face and WROTE ME A PRESCRIPTION FOR ANTIDEPRESSANTS. Misogynistic, combative, rude and most importantly a complete failure at meeting his hippocratic oath.

Dr. Goldberg was a huge help. After having my gallbladder removed by another doctor I continued to have symptoms. A few months after the surgery I had a scare that worried my primary care doctor and my radiologist, so Dr Goldberg was able to fit me in to see me the same day. He showed genuine concern for me, explained everything in easy terms and personally made sure I had all of the tests and procedures I needed done within just a few days. He was reassuring, kind and very competent.

The doctor was good at performing the needed tests and identifying the problem. He prescribed medication but was not cooperative enough when it came to discussing changes in lifestyle. I didn't feel I have a partner who listens and willing to help me through my journey to complete healing without dependency on medication.
