It was a long wait in the waiting room and than it was a rush job in and out. Very dismissive of my concerns.

customer care is beyond pathetic. They treat their patients very poorly when you call in with any type of questions

Had TKR on my right knee a bit over 2 years ago. The surgery was successful & I had full range of motion after I completed my 3 month rehab, I'll credit Dr. Goldman with being a technically proficient surgeon. However, I found him to be generally distant & unresponsive to questions about appropriate exercises & the time frames needed to heal & get back to a normal routine. He was often late for follow up appts & was rushed once he arrived. So, he performed well in the ER but didn't do so well on the communications side of his business. I prefer a more well rounded surgeon to be doing the work on me. For that reason I can only give him a 3 star rating. I'm having a 2nd knee replacement done soon. Dr Goldman will not be my surgeon.

Dr. Goldman performed double knee replacement on me 4 years ago. He was brusque and inattentive, especially when I had serious difficulty with one knee. He cut an artery during the surgery which caused a bleed. He does not require follow-up appointments and, in general, has been unresponsive about a bungled surgery.

Dr. Goldman is an excellent physician whom I highly recommend. I look forward to my knee replacement surgery. Although he has only given me injections. He is very good at explaining procedures, does not waste anytime in getting to the solutions and understanding what is best for the patients quality of life. I endure extreme pain and it is difficult since moving back to NJ since a Hurricane in FL to endure stairs with AVN in my knees and hips.

I have been seeing various physicians at Tri County for almost 25 years. It is now like a factory where they even lock the doors to the examining rooms??? This doctor totally misdiagnosed me, sent me out of his office in pain worse than childbirth; if it was not for the fact that I know one of the doctors personally, who sent me up right away to their pain doctor, Dr. Wendell, (who was wonderful) I don't know what I would have done. He is one of the worse doctors I have come across lately.

I put off surgery for a total hip repacement longer than I should have and was in severe pain. Went to one surgeon and was very uncomfortable. Went to Tri-County and met with Dr. Goldman. This is a very busy practice and the initial meeting was a bit rushed, but all of my questions were answered. Had to wait three months for the surgery but it was worth it. Its a year later, it's like I never had a hip issue. He did a great job and the PT got me back to normal again. Highly recommend!

I had ACL surgery..Dr. Goldman took the time to explain the surgery to me and the follow up that was required. The surgery went well. I would highly recommend Dr. Goldman.

TKR - 1 year ago. Although there is an education class, minimal time truly explaining the length and real scope of recovery by Dr Goldman. I had complication and he kept saying it was an excellent surgery- no problems- DEDPITE being reminded that the night of surgery , a medical aide left me unattended, I took a BAD fall and landed on mY NEW KNEE. Only Xray- months later I continued to have unexplained issues & complications- yet he discharged me. Still major problems Think twice ABOUT HIM.

Excellent total hip replacement surgery; no significant pain; no pain at all after four days; very quick recovery to independence; never had to wait for him except the day of my surgery; efficient and to the point; won't waste words in general conversations.

After my knee surgery in December 2016, I was so discouraged and in so much pain that I absolutely felt hopeless. I was unable to pick up my pain prescription refill because I lived too far from their office and could not drive so that didn't help matters. That was then! Today I am 8 1/2 months post op and feel fantastic. I just completed my first 5 mile walk since my surgery and couldn't be happier. Dr. Goldman was fantastic. I have and will continue to refer people to Dr. Goldman. The BEST.

I know he's an outstanding surgeon for knee replacements. However,when I went for my appt, he spent little time w/ me, seemed ready to leave before I was done asking questions & offered zero recommendations for an arthritic condition. He said there was nothing to do but avoid certain activities like stairs. Really? Said no treatment to slow the progression of the arthritis. Left me feeling completely hopeless. I found there is much that can be done thanks to internet research.Disappointed in him

Several days ago, my Mother, who has been a patient of Tri-County for years, fell and broke multiple bones, including her hip. After 13 hours in the ER, DR. Goldman, who was on call never returned her call or my call, and the hospital kept telling us that they were also awaiting his call back despite their repeated attempts to reach him. What is the point of an on call doctor if they don't respond, especially when the injuries were severe enough to require multiple surgeries?

Very bad experience. After a problem with the surgery and 2 years of misdiagnoses I had to go into NYC to get straightened out.
