in Bethesda, MD |
Dr Goldberg was really nice, took his time to get to know me and my issues and helped developed a plan to get me feeling better quickly.
Bethesda md |
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.
