Am a health professional. Have worked in hospitals and doctors' offices. Have never seen a professional office run so efficiently and such a superior staff. All are kind and willingly answer questions, The wait is usually minimal. Most I have ever waited was 10 minutes. EKG, Techs are superior. Dr Goldstein is a gem; perfect manner and reassuring. If you want top-notch cardiac care i a well-run office with minimal wait, Dr Goldstein and staff is the place to go.
