What People Say About Dr. Jay Goldstein, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have never met a more arrogant physician than Dr. Goldstein. He seemed initially concerned with my illness and when his initial treatment for his diagnosis failed to fix my symptoms, he assumed (incorrectly) that the illness was psychosomatic. I was able to ultimately fire him. At my first appointment with the new GI, he asked questions in a new way, looked at my test results and referred me to surgery that day. I have not had an issue since that time. Dr. Goldstein even lied to me about a test result and was angry when I pointed out that he was wrong, as I had already seen the test results from a nurse.

My issue was not directly with Dr. Goldstein, but his office staff had me waiting all day for a return call and absolutely NO one called me. I was in a great deal of pain and contacted the office throughout the day and was told that someone would call me back. I was advised that they received notice that the Nurse Practitioner wasn't available until 3:30 when I called the office AGAIN at 4:09! It wasn't until that moment that I was advised that I had the option of going to Immediate Care!!!

I have a few favorite docs, but Dr. Goldstein surpassed all my expectations. He was patient, kind, empathetic, informative, thorough and had a connection that you just don't see anymore in any doctor.
