I am writing this review, while sitting in the doctor’s waiting room with my wife. She is having a colonoscopy today. We have now been sitting here for more than two hours and that seems ridiculous. The reason I chose to write is because the doctor’s receptionist just told us “Doctor G likes to get all his patients in the room.” Meaning the waiting room. And there are no chairs because it is wall to wall people. Consider this before you choose this Doc because this is the standard procedure.

Dr. Goldschmiedt is a specialist's specialist. He performed a difficult diagnostic procedure on me, diagnosed two different issues, and successfully treated me for these conditions when other gastroenterologists could not find an answer for over a year. I have been disease-free for seven years and heartily recommend Dr. Goldschmiedt to family and friends.

Spent a lot of time with me to understand my complaint. Recommended a colonoscopy and worked with my fear of needles when it was time for the IV. Willing to help with prescriptions that work and are either covered by my insurance or offered for free by the drug manufacturer. Really listened to what I had to say and wanted to find the reason for the problem, then find a workable solution. Never made me feel rushed or embarrassed. Great bedside manner. His office nurse is amazing too!!
Richardson, TX |
After a visit to the emergency room he told me I was having "Migraines of the intestines" and irritable bowel syndrome. Never would schedule my follow-up to do the endoscope. After three months of suffering found a new GI and doctor. Turns out I have early stage pancreatic cancer. Mine looks operable I hopefully the delays wont be negative. I would not recommend to anyone!

could not address the issue

I only got a chance to speak for few minutes to explain and address my lth issues which was very disappointing for me since my most important health issue was not addressed for which my visit purpose was all about. It was more about finding more answers about my Non gastrointestinal symptoms and if they are closely related to my ibs symptoms! I was not given a chance to talk about that. He just told me I have Ibs and some info about it, something I already knew! I knew about it even much more

Office staff is incompetent and rude. Doctor rushes through his appointments and doesn't provide clear instructions or diagnosis
