What People Say About Dr. Richard Goldstein, DPM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Had my first visit ever with a podiatrist. Dr. Goldstein was a part of my medical group so I thought I'd give him a try. I had alot of pain in my toe from my manicurist cutting my nail too short causing a very painful ingrown toenail. I couldn't even touch it and had no idea what to expect. Dr. Goldstein was so pleasant. He had a great sense of humor but most importantly, explained the whole procedure which put me totally at ease. He made what could have been a very unpleasant experience tolerable. One day after having to have the nail re-cut and cleaned out, I can happily say....it was like I didn't even have anything done! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Goldstein to anyone who wants a skilled, compassionate and jovial doctor!! Thanks Dr. Goldstein. Linda M

Dr. Goldstein is great! I would recommend him to anyone I know with any sort of podiatry issue. He is very down to earth and understandable. He makes 100% sure that you understand the prognosis and how to help cure it. He is also great with showing you how to do the exercise required the correct way which in turn helps you heel faster! The office is very clean. And all the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. It is very easy to make an appointment as well.

I wish I could say he was good no. I think he does not know how to do surgery. He fired me and sent me to one of his friends. He is nice but not competent. Told my primary care doc I had a tear. The new doctor said I did he just cleaned it out and it hurts worse now. What Can I do HELP !!!

Went to Dr. Goldstein after botched bunion surgery from another podiatrist. He defended the original doctors surgery, but after 5 months he finally admitted that it will be to be re-done. Every question I asked was never really answered, and when I pushed for an answer, I was constantly told that he didn't know how to explain it so that I would understand. From visit to visit, his answers changed and never reviewed his notes. He didn't even know why he wanted me to come in on my last appt.

was treated by Dr. Goldstein at HUMC Pascack Valley for a badly infected leg wound. Within five minutes of meeting Dr. Goldstein, all of my fears were put to rest. By far, the most down to earth, patient centered physician that I have ever been treated by. A few days out of the hospital, infection is gone, I feel better than ever and I'm a few week away from making a full recovery. This Dr. is the real deal!!!
