Alexander City, Al |
Dr Goldhagen has replaced both of my knees, the most recent entailed only 6 hours at the hospital and zero pain. Great staff as well. Highly recommended
in Wetumpka, AL |
Without reservation, I recommend Dr. Goldhagen to family & friends: a concerned friend recommended him to me. I particularly appreciate that he explains fully the diagnosis, the possible treatments, & the results I can expect with each treatment. He listens to me as I question the different treatments & answers in "layman's terms" so I can actually understand his answer. My body alerts when it's time for my next appointment: I am always ready for my treatment which will alleviate my pain.

First visit I was diagnosed with arthritis in my knee and given an Rx, return in two weeks. Next visit, I told the Dr. the Rx didn't control the pain and I itched all over. Dr ordered an MRI and diagnosed a possible meniscus tear. Treatment would be physical therapy. For the cost of physical therapy vs MRI, why not just try therapy and see if that works. Better yet, if it was arthritis why not try a different pain med instead of $1,000's on the MRI. I resched an apt due to an emer & chrgd.
Odessa, TX |
I had pain in three joints and his receptionist wanted to know which ONE I wanted to talk to him about that day. I drove an hour to get there, barely could scrape up the co-pay (I pay SO MUCH for health insurance, I can barely afford to go to the doctor). Six months later I still have shoulder pain, and don't have a car to go to another doctor. I would NEVER go to him again, he only wants your insurance money and co-pay. He doesn't fix you. DO NOT USE HIM if you want to heal!!!!
Elmore, Alabama |
Emergency room said I had 2 broken bones in ankle/foot. Referred to dr goldhagen. Dr goldhagen said I had no broken bones just a sprained ankle took off my cast and referred me to physical therapy. After my ankle started swelling and hurting badly I went back to the er. The dr showed me on the X-ray the 2 broken bones, one being the talus bone. If I had not seemed medical attention and gone to physical therapy with a diagnosis of sprained ankle I wouldn't have walked correctly again.
