he nurse practitioner, Carmen, has an issue with patients who come in with knowledge. Apparently her ego is too large to accept that the patient may possibly know something or have something to share about their own health/family history. Consequently, she was inept at listening. She was rude and condescending. Additionally, she was unapologetic about the hour and a half wait to see her.. not even an acknowledgement of it! She just came in the room without batting an eye. I was astounded by her lack of care and professionalism. She behaved like a snippy woman with pretentious overtones. I will, however, return and see Dr. Golden since he has great reviews. I’m not counting this office out because of one employee. It’s his practice and she’s a replaceable nurse who may or may not work there in the future/in the long run.

Have not seen Dr. Golden for a medical condition but I did matriculate and graduate with him form medical school at the University of Colorado. My wife and I were out to Fresno in 2015; to pick up a Sportsmobile - but did not have the chance to stop by (then a Wyoming Physician on call 24x7). To date this is a funny way to say hello to Patrick - but to all others I must add that I would have no reservations whatsoever seeking his care. The best of the year - to all !.

Dr. Golden is awesome. My 87 year-old mom’s health has improved immeasurably under his care. If there were more rating stars available under the “listening and explaining” section, I’d rate him much higher. As it stands, he’s an 8 out of 5.

I have been going to this Doctor's practice for a few years now. Although I don't see Dr. Golden but his nurse practitioner, Carmen Sanchez, whom is competent and prompt (I like her) the office receptionist and nurse are grossly inefficient and bordering on bumbling. When my NP was out on vacation, I called five times over four days trying to refill my prescription. That was 2 wks ago. Called twice today. Still no action. Bottom line, they couldn't care less about their patients.

Just started taking my elderly relative there. Was told the first visit would be with the nurse for screening. Ok. Second visit SURPRISE! Saw the nurse again. Fortunately the nurse seems to be quite competent.

Dr. Golden is thorough, professional, great bedside manner. Dr. Golden believes that certain vitamins and supplements can be beneficial to help maintain a healthy immune system and healthy lifestyle. One of my employees hadn't been feeling well for a couple weeks. He was encouraged to see Dr. Golden to get a second opinion about his condition. Upon arriving at Dr. Golden's office and having a brief examination he was taken straight to St. Agnes hospital where he was admitted for surgery stat.
