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

This was my first (hopefully last) experience with kidney stones. The pain was worse than anything I had ever experienced. It started with a trip to the ER, followed by a primary care doctor visit three days later. I was so sick and wasn't getting any help or answers. Finally, I had an appointment with Dr. Golden. Within 5 minutes, Dr. Golden explained everything and scheduled lithotripsy for the following day. The lithotripsy was successful. Within a couple of days I was feeling better.

I wish I could say that I can review Doctor Golden....However, I never made it past his staff. I was scheduled for a 10:30 Appt. today. Their office is near the hospital and I got lost looking for his office. The info desk at the hospital called his office to let them know I would be running a few minutes late. I arrived at 10:40. I have 2 brain injuries and have seriously mobility issues which was compounded by a recent snow & ice storms. No compassion from staff, cold and heartless.

I recently had laser treatment for a kidney stone lodged in my ureter. This was a day patient procedure under general anesthesia. The results: No more pain! Dr. Golden's skills as a medical professional are excellent. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his services. The staff was most helpful and professional as well.

I have been seeing Dr. Golden for several years since first having difficulties with enlarged prostrate. I have always had the utmost respect on his handling my urinary difficulties. He looks directly into your eyes when talking to you as if to ensure you understand what you are saying and that you understand him fully. He is kind, compassionate and has an excellent bedside manner. I unequivocally would recommend him to the best of my friends and family.

Dr. Golden's training and years of experience in the specialty of urology give me a great deal of confidence in his clinical advice, examinations and treatment. That said, what I appreciate as much as his knowledge and skills is the genuine kindness, compassion and humility he shows towards his patients. In 2009, Dr. Golden performed a life-saving kidney transplant that restored my health and energy. For that and the follow-up care he has provided, I will always be grateful.

My husband & I highly recommend Dr. Golden. From Stephanie at the front desk (who is extremely friendly & put us right at ease) to meeting Dr. Golden & his medical assistant Hannah, it was the best medical/doctor experience that we have had in many years! We did meet with Jana in the billing office, who helped us through the maze of insurance forms & answered all our questions with a smile. Thank you to the entire staff, and especially Dr. Golden, for your kindness, and medical expertise.
