What People Say About Dr. Michael Goldsmith, MD

Reply
It was quickly clear to Dr. Goldsmith that I wasn't a candidate for surgery or additional treatment by him, but he spent a more than reasonable amount of time explaining my condition, why he wasn't going to do anything invasive and how to proceed. I found myself with confidence in his explanation and his attitude - nothing dismissive or arrogant, just a nice person with a lot of knowledge & excellent communication skills.

Dr. Goldsmith did my cervical fusion. He was recommended to me by my neurologist. Before the surgery he was excellent about seeing me at the last minute and he got me a very quick MRI appointment before a trip I was supposed to take. He explained everything to me and was very responsive. I felt confident when he did my surgery.
