My name is Jeanie Grizzell I am returning to California in September, I left but my Texas trip did not work out Doctor Golden has been my Doctor for many years I am most appreciative, never reestablished a Doctor in Texas, cannot wait to return, This is the only medical Group I have ever been with since the age of 17. Doctor Golden is always professional never keeps you waiting, always gives you the exact diagnosis, takes the best care of his patients, am very proud to be in the best hands .

A great doctor. I was always nervous about finding a good doctor that wouldn't make me feel bad for decisions I've made or make me feel bad about the person who I was. Joel Golden and his office staff are quite friendly. He's always listened to my problems, kept my best interests at heart and always looked to help out wherever he could. With his help, I've caught a couple of conditions and helped control them, a great staff and doctor for sure.
