I first met Dr. Gold while in the hospital and have been treated by him for over a year. I have found that he will listen to me closely and work hard to find the right diagnosis. He always treated me with dignity and respect even when he didn't agree with my choices.His diagnosis has been validated by Drs. in Boston and he was the one to suggest seeking help outside Albany. I am very grateful for his kindness and his knowledge.

Felt rushed. Brought my mother to Dr. Gold. He didn’t offer her any alternative therapies except to increase her oxygen and to get her affairs in order because he didn’t feel that she was going to live long. She left the appointment feeling so discouraged. His bed side manner was abrupt and insensitive.

Dr. Gold... Seems rushed in his visits. When my mother was suffering severely with cold he just told her to continue to use her inhales and oxygen. Really didn't try to help her at all.
