The wait at the office is over 2hrs. He say 1 thing but after the procedure it's like he don't want any dealings with you. I had my spine work on. I was supposed to walk the next day not only it took 3 mos to walk I have to have another procedure and I have tremors and pain for the rest of my like. Because he service the urban areas it's like he don't care he talk to you like dirt. And it's not right. Tell he says to ppl if you lose weight you wouldn't have this problem.

Got stuck with a Resident because Dr Goldstein was too busy after it took 3 months to get an appointment. Then was told to go see previous surgeon that doesn't take my insurance... this was a complete waste of my time bordering on Medicaid Fraud.
