Trying to schedule an appointment to see this Dr. Goldstein. it's been one week so far and nothing. I called today and they told me to call back in two more days to talk with the nurse. She can't talk with me because she is sooooo busy scheduling appointments for two doctors (oh my!!!). My sense is this office is scheduling appointments using 18th century technology or the scheduling nurse is absolutely incompetent. Not sure which. I'll let you know when I talk with her.

Dr. Goldstein is a remarkable surgeon who really knows his stuff. He has kept me comfortable, confident, and assured through the whole procedure. He took care when I had complications at one point stemming from something that was discovered during tests and colonoscopy and endoscopy. We are doing more testing now together. Dr. Goldstein has been here every step of the way and even built in time to his busy schedule to see me when it was needed on an urgent basis. Great doctor!!!

So far Dr. Goldstein has thrown tests at my husband and then has his nurse/technician do all the follow up with NO game plan. Extremely frustrated. My husband has been sick for 3 years now.

Dealt with Ulcerative Colitis which he refused to treat or diagnose because his partner did my colonoscopy. Went into to see him with a very distended abdomen and was NOT given an exam just an RX for antibiotics and told it was SIBO. Ended up at my colorectal's office a few weeks later in EXTREME pain. I was IMPACTED with almost 20lbs of fecal matter. If Dr. Goldstein would have done his job and given me a physical exam instead of throw antibiotics at me it would not have been as bad as it ended

Unlike the other reviews I had a wonderful experience with Dr.Goldstein! Not only did he find out what was causing my sharp pain in my stomach but he was also very helpful in explaining the recovery process. I felt very comfortable and safe in his hands and I would recommend him to future patients.

After going to several doctors to find the source of my pain, I was referred to Dr. Goldstein by a family friend. She said he was the best and if he couldn't fix your problem then there wasn't anyone who could! She was so right! After taking an extensive history and reviewing my tests he proceeded to eventually find the solution! I can't thank him enough for giving me back my quality of life. BLESS YOU, DR. GOLDSTEIN

Absolutely awful. Never received my test results. I called and never got return phone calls. I had previously been under the care of a wonderful gastro doctor for many years before moving here. Never had a problem. Dr Goldstein didn't even know the medications I was on. When I discussed them with him he was completely misinformed. I would tell NO ONE to see him. One of the worst doctors I have ever seen!!!

Terrible doctor who didn't figure out what was wrong with me, and when I tried to get my records from him, he had lost them. He called my primary doctor and bad mouthed me causing him to discharge me from his practice.
