I have been a patient of Dr. Goldberg for over 6 years. I continue to find him extremely responsive and caring. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a skilled, caring gastroenterologist..
in Evanston, Il |
I have seen a few different GI doctors over the last 20 years due to a familial history of colon and esophageal cancers. I found him to very helpful and funny, which is important for a procedure such as a colonoscopy. I am very pleased and will continue to see Dr. Goldberg.

He wouldn't actually listen to me explain my symptoms. He saw me for no more than 90 seconds (I've had *terrible* GI problems for more than 4 years) and he acted like I was making him late for something else and the last thing he wanted to do was talk/listen to me. I've now seen him twice and it was the same on the 2nd visit. Look elsewhere, this kind of care is unacceptable.

I ended up in Evanston Hosp because I was too sick to get home (frequent vomiting and dirreha). When tests ordered turned up "normal", he and other gastroenologist, Eric Elton, sent me home with my symptoms no better and with a prescription that hospital and regular pharmacies would not fill. He either knew this or should have known this. It took four stops for me to get home. When I saw my local gastroenologist, he ordered correct tests then gave me medications that worked.
Unfortuanately we do not know what pharmacies will fill or not fill. Nor do we know what insurance will pay for or not pay for. We also do not prescribe the meds at discharge. This is something the hospitalists perscribe

Never again. His bedside manner was appalling (and I work critical care bedside nursing.) Initially he tried to hand me off to a Fellow. I refused. In recovery, he entered the room, stood partway between the threshold and curtain, told me "you don't need to see me for another 10 years" and actually THREW my report on the bed and walked out. My husband looked at me, and said..."did that just happen?" He acts as if his pts are a supreme nuisance. The remainder of the GI team are professional
I am sorry you felt that way. The fellows are assigned to us every week. This is because we are a teaching institution. This is something you know as you work at the hospital. They are supposed to introduce themselves to the patient and ask if they can participate in their care. However.they are aggressive and at times I understand they do not. I believe things started off badly because of this. You were very nervous about the procedure and I attempted to minimize things by floating the report
in Highland Park, IL |
The entire colonscopy experience at Highland Park Hospital was a 'cattle call' of an experience. They were running late, hurried me into the room, began the procedure before I was fully sedated, ended with never seeing the doctor except to shake me awake to sign papers. By the time I was coherent, I asked to see him, and they told me that he had left the building. All around, what a perfect example of poor patient/family relations.
Unfortuanately the meds used cause amnesia

After colonoscopy he literally came in recovery said you're good and proceeded to walk away,had to stop him to ask questions. Horrible bedside manner, there is a reason he deals with rear ends,he seems to be one.
in North Chicago, IL |
This was the WORST experience I have ever had with a doctor in my entire life. He spent a whole two minutes in the exam room with me. Didn't ask me about my symptoms or my concerns. The one concern I mentioned he ignored. Then WITHOUT an examination he told me to take an over the counter medicine and WALKED OUT into the elevator and OUT OF THE BUILDING!!!!! I could not be more unhappy and dissatisfied with his care for patients. Talk about an unethical practice of medicine!
