About Me

I specialize in pain medicine / physical medicine and rehabilitation as I believe that regular, close, caring, and long-term relationships can help facilitate meaningful lifestyle changes. I added addiction medicine for the same reasons. 
We endeavor to objectively quantify and understand outcomes on behalf of my patients.

What People Say About Dr. Kurt Gold, MD

I actually care for Dr. Gold because he is a great man. He respects people & truly does care about his patients- to an extent. He does treat for appropriate pain, however when something works, he will change the course the next month, leaving patients in a horrible predicament. I see the addicts in his waiting room (you will wait an hour or more) & front desk are TRULY the rudest women I hv ever encountered. He forgets things a lot when you finally get a Treatment plan. Incredibly frustrating!

Dr. Gold is an exceptional Doctor. He spends an abundance of time with his patients to ensure their needs are met. I have been seeing him for almost 5 years and not once has he mentioned his religion, or tried to "push" the Mormon faith on me. He has done wonders managing my chronic pain and admits when he thinks he needs to involve other Doctors for their expertise. I would not hesitate to send any of my family members to him. Thanks Dr. Gold for everything you have done for your patients.

Dr. Kurt Gold MD is the best pain management physician I have ever encountered, in over forty years of back pain conditions. He is thorough, professional, sincere, respectful, and kind. Dr. Gold's professional manner is only topped by his expertise in all aspects of pain management. His office location also houses a qualified physical therapist...which illustrates Dr. Gold's emphasis on holistic, practical and successful treatment plans for pain conditions.

I was SO very fortunate to be recommended by a friend to Dr. Gold! I'd seen many Dr's trying to figure out what was causing my intense pain suddenly after jogging. He spent a lot time with me & I knew he was going to find the answer & he did. To say he helped would be a HUGE understatement. I loved his knowledge, expertise, his absolute dedication to his patients & his character & respect that I saw him display towards his patients & staff. He's pure "Gold" if you're looking for the best!

He withheld pain meds when he found out I wasn't following the faith of mormans, he falsified medical reports on me, when I tried to cut back on the ever increasing pain meds he was giving me he got upset and shut me off for a month to "teach" me a lesson. When I told him I didn't want to be a Morman he sent to a shrink cause I "had" a problem. This doctor has killed people by wthholding pain meds till they killed themselves due to the pain, he called them "ungratfull".
