They have a strict no-wait policy to make sure every patient is seen on time and so that the office can run as efficiently as possible. For patients who arrive early there are free snacks, a comfortable waiting room and friendly staff to greet them. Dr. Golden received his MD from St. Louis University's School of Medicine.
