Dr. Goldman has been my Dr for over 20 years. He is thorough, compassionate and listens to his patients concerns. Your annual physical is complete, his attention is on you, the patient, with no disturbance from the office while he is with you . I highly recommend First Choice Medical.

I walked into Dr. Goldman’s office a few years ago with chest discomfort. I was taken in immediately and was given an EKG test. Dr. Goldman sent me to the hospital right away and thank god he did! W was having a heart attack. Needless to say he saved my life that day. I have been going to him ever since. He is very thorough, really listens to me. Very compassionate. I will never go any where else. The best care!

11am appointment, wasn’t seen until 12. PA was good, however she was under a “Dr. James” who didn’t show his face but was just outside my exam room. He answered the questions. But was quite the arrogant jerk.

By order of a psychologist I opt out of weighing in at doctors visits. I always offer to give a weight range and have the prover coordinate health care with psychologist. Dr. Goldman was complete dismissive about my struggles with disordered eating and cared more about insurance forms and office policy than making sure I remained both mentally and physically healthy.

Excellent old fashion professional family doctor who offers high quality care to all his patients, still provides a 45min-one hr. Thorough Yearly exam. Listens to your concerns explains your condition clearly and honestly and very caringly. I've been his patient for almost 25 years and recommend him to everyone.

My experiences at First Choice Medical in Holbrook, NY have been nothing but pleasant since my first visit. The entire staff is friendly, warm, and helpful. The ease of scheduling, the pleasant environment, and the fact that the staff is determined to help you as soon as possible make this office the absolute best. James makes for a great P.A. and the amount of time he spends to ensure patients' understanding of their state of health is extremely helpful!

This was my first visit with Dr. Goldman's office. His staff is courteous and friendly. Dr. Goldman was easy to speak with, explained everything...even took the time to draw out and explain things I had a hard time understanding. He listened to my own health concerns and put my mind to ease. Overall I found him to be positive, calm, thorough, and attentive. I look forward to having Dr. Goldman's guidance towards a lifetime of good health.

My visit to Dr Goldman was for my annual physical. The experience from being greeted in the office and throughout the entire exam was nothing short of perfection. Friendly, professional, respectful, are just a few words to describe my visit. If you want great healthcare, go to Dr Goldman and his staff.

Last time I had a doctor like Dr Goldman was when I was a small child with my family doctor that made house calls. Dr. Larry Goldman always listens to my issues and take his time to understand and also explain how we will proceed with his course of action to solve my problems. He's one in a million!
