What People Say About Dr. Robert Golden, MD

Dr. Golden was very professional, yet made me feel "special". I'm sure my pain and suffering were not new to him, but were unique to me. Dr. Golden was amazing at helping me through the process before and after TURP surgery. He will always remain one the most compassionate Drs. I have been served by. His staff was equally as professional and caring. Boy, did I get the best or what? Thanks all. MORE than 5 stars.

Dr. Golden was extremely helpful and kind. He walked me through my Kidney stone treatment and was always quick to get me where I needed to go. He also preformed my surgery and did an excellent job. I highly recommend Dr. Golden.

I have treated with Dr. Golden for the past eight years for a chronic UTI associated with a bladder sling. The surgery for the bladder sling was performed by a local and incompetent Urologist. I have found Dr. Golden kind, understanding, and very knowledgeable. His office staff is, without exception, courteous and caring. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr. Golden and his staff for any urological problem.

Dr. Golden is too hard to see and I won't be back. I had to reschedule due to a late insurance authorization form. It took one month to reschedule a FRIGGIN 15 MINUTE APPOINTMENT. I tried to pay full cash out of pocket and keep the original appointment and that was "Against the rules" because I had insurance. I want to be in charge of my own healthcare and feel like I was bossed around by the system and a Dr. who apparently has too many clients or doesn't work very much.

Was very happy with the way Dr. golden went over my problem and listened to my fears about the gall stone removal. His time with me in the hospital before the removal of stone was excellent and done away with my fears. The removal of the stone went as he said it would and I am feeling so much better since that time.. Excellent Dr. and I would recommend him to any one needing an urologist.

Dr. Golden is one of the few physicians I can recommend without reservation. I have been a patient for over 10 years. He is competent, caring, and takes all the time needed. You will be in good hands with Dr. Golden. On several occasions, he has declined to do work that was unnecessary, but that would have increased his revenues. Jerry Wegman Moscow, Idaho
