What People Say About Dr. Samuel Goldstein, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I would not recommend Dr. Goldstein at all. I saw Dr. Goldstein for a total knee replacement that became infected intra-op. He sent me home despite the fact my wound was gushing fluid. He refused to see me afterwards as the infection grew worse because my insurance had changed. When I tried to politely discuss the matter with him he hung up on me. I was dying from the infection and after four surgeries and four months in the hospital my leg had to be amputated.

Dr. Goldstein repaired my torn shoulder labrum . I followed up with PT through ATI. It was a great experience from start to finish. Dr. G was very straight-forward and personable. He had my best interest at heart and helped me make the right choice for me. There was no pressure from him to choose one option over the other, he simply gave me the information I needed and then supported my decision. He is down to earth and not egotistical at all. His staff is excellent. I would recommend him 100%.

I would certainly recommend Dr. Goldstein. He is a great Dr. that takes the time to explain everything and answer all questions on a level that you understand. Comparing my knee surgery results to others I know and work with, I know I made the right decision using him. My knee is so much better, I have been able to do what I want, and most of all.... I can sleep all night! No more waking up in pain. He is very responsive after surgery for any issues or concerns. Would recommend to anyone.

Dr. Goldstein performed 3 different procedures on my shoulder. His diagnosis was right on target. His surgery was effective. He watched over me and followed up on me. I am extremely satisfied and am lucky to have found him!

Excellent care. Dr Goldstein listens and answers my questions fully and in a way I can understand. He did shoulder reconstruction and a knee replacement. I am very happy with the results and I can still play tennis because of him
