To provide state of the art medical care in partnership with my patients. Listening is the key to accurate diagnoses.

This doctor is one of a kind, truly. He has a calming demeanor that makes talking to him very easy. He listens & communicates better than any dr I've been to. He personally answers messages inbetween his appts. He encouraged me to see an Ehlers-Danlos specialist for a proper diagnosis. He not only gave us a direction, he spent time researching drs to help me decide where to go & then answered every question I had along the way. A genuinely good doctor & person. I'm so grateful for all his help!

Dr Goldenberg is a wonderful physician. He has been treating my Mother for Alzheimer's about 5 years. He consistently impresses our family with the time and attention to details he always gives and the patience he expresses with our Mother. Dr G has a very calming demeanor & seems to communicate very transparently regarding her disease. We moved to another state and are so pleased with him & we now make the trip back to Dr G when it's time for checkups. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.

i was referred to dr. goldenberg for intense headaches. from the minute he entered the room i was relieved. he has an extremely calming demeanor to go along with his re-assuring and confident approach, which continued throughout the treatment process. with some behavioral changes and medication, i was pain free a few months later! the office staff is fabulous too - very friendly & quick to respond. i never waited more than 10 minutes to be seen and phone calls were returned the same day.

After being ignored by four drs who passed me from one medical facility to the next instead of diagnosing the source of my extreme pain, I feel so fortunate to have found Dr G. Rather than blindly accept drs opinions and test results, he carefully listened to me and reviewed raw test data to draw his own conclusions resulting in a clear understanding of my condition and a recovery plan. His rare combination of expertise, attentiveness and calm will leave you feeling in the best hands possible.

Dr. Goldenberg has cared for my Mother Vera Tomlinson since 2007. My Mother sufferers from Alzheimer's. I was initially impressed with Doctor Goldenberg mannerism and patients with our Mother he consistently met or surpasses all of our expectations in a Physician. Doctor Goldenberg along with office manger Katrina Smith is a great team together. He comes highly recommended from our family.
in Delray Beach, FL |
I was diagnosed with leptomeningitis in 2013. I had constant headaches for years. I was sent to five different specialists with no results. In 2016, I found Dr. James Goldenberg at Medical Specialists Of The Palm Beaches. He put me on a new medication and I have not had headaches for several months now. Dr. G. was very thorough in reviewing my case. He answered all of my questions. He is totally professional and he instantly makes you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this doctor.
Boca Raton, FL |
Office staff left us sitting in lobby, asked them 3 times to check if they know we're here. Finally office empty, went to window, told someone will be out to speak with us, but don't block the window. Then told the doctor left, didn't know we were here. This after 1hr and 45 min.

As the Mom of a big family, I have been to MANY Doctors. Dr. Goldenberg & his incredible office staff rate at the top ! I have had ONLY positive experiences. It is OBVIOUS by the way he interacts w/ patients that not only is he super competent as an MD, but kind and caring to the utmost degree. He is generous w/ his time, both in person and on the phone, and his deep concern for his patients' well being is apparent. Dr Goldenberg is an inspiring example of what we all look for in a Dr.
