First of all I will sat that I have had digestive issues for a number of years and my problems were misdiagnosed by several Doctors. From the first day i walked into Dr. Goldstein's office I was very impressed by the professional quality of my care. Dr. Goldstein properly diagnosed my issues and got me up and running. I owe him so much that I want to give him 10 stars. My son and wife now go to him and that shows how much I trust him.

Dr Goldstein is the best staff is always willing to deal with issues over the phone and work with my primary care he is smart and forms his own opinion without going off other doctors . This is a rare find . He is caring and very attentive also he does not rush his patients at all as one x employee said in a negative review that is not true.

This was by far the most unorganized and unprofessional office I have ever worked at. The supervisor does not supervise and spends the majority of her time on vacation. The patients are treated terrible. The doctor rushes to see patients and only gives them about 10 minutes of his time before rushing to the next patient. There is absolutely no TEAMWORK in this facility whatsoever. Staff work against, instead of with each other. Glad I have moved on!
