Dr. Gold has been my doctor for almost 3 years now. He is very knowledgeable and has always known what to do to solve my many issues with my heart health. He has performed and completed surgeries where others have failed for me. I almost lost my life in the care of a different doctor, from a different hospital, during surgery to install a pacemaker. Dr. Gold was able to complete the surgery, that the other doctor was unable to complete, with no complications. I have 4 children that get to have a father still thanks to him, and the many staff at MUSC cardiology department.

Apologized for slight lTeness, very direct and straight forward, answered my questions clearly and did not talk down to me. Recognized my fears of options and helped me evaluate treatments without pushing me either way. I think he was terrific.
