Dr. Goldberg performed a bilateral hernia repair for me earlier this year. He was exceptional. From the first office visit he was in tune with what I needed mentally to be prepared to undertake surgery. He explained the surgery very well, I didn't feel rushed and he made it clear that having surgery was my choice and that my wishes could be integrated into what was actually done. The surgical staff was also excellent and they really made the experience the easiest that I could have hoped.

Dr.GOLDBERG is an excellent dr! He goes above & beyond what is needed to make his patients feel like their his only patient. He takes the time to explain any procedure, pre & post op. He has a very professional & pleasant personality! And, he gives 150% in caring for his patients. He's my husband's dr who just went thru 2 traumatic surgeries, & we couldn't be more satisfied w/Dr. Goldberg's care. My husband came into emergency & was hospitalized. His team/staff are also great! Thanks & God Bles!
