Dr. Golub is an amazing physician. She is knowledgeable, thorough, and personable. She also comes with a boatload of experience! Her office is well run and the staff excellent! If you have a wait time in her office, she is definitely worth the wait! I give this physician five stars.

I wish I had written a review sooner. I have been a patient since my early 20's. Dr. Golub is the best doctor I have had for 30 years. She performed a laparoscopy that helped me get pregnant with my now 22 year old and again with my 16 year old. The wait time is the only drawback because she takes the time to talk to each and every patient and answer any questions that you may have. It is worth allocating the time to see her. She is the best!!

I was a patient of Dr. Joan Golub for 25 years while living in Boston area. All three of my daughters were patients as well. She is an outstanding physician in every respect. Her referrals are excellent as well and am thankful for her superior and kind care.

Dr. Golub is one the best physicians I have ever seen. She is knowledgeable and thorough as well as calming when I have had concerns. I have and will continue to recommend her to friends and family who are looking for a gynecologist.
