I think Dr. Goldstein is a wonderful doctor. His appointments are very quick, but I feel confident that he has the right skills to do his job.

Dr. Goldstein was a lifesaver for me! I suffered with pain for too many years! No doctor could give me an answer except him! It was a simple life changing fix! Thank you so much!

Dr. Goldstein performed a Fistulotomy on me in June 2018 After I had monthly check-ups until November. Although, he is not big on conversation, he got the job done and did it well. Love ya, Dr. Goldstein. Jerry R Sewell, NJ

Please go elsewhere. He is condescending, overprescribes and is dismissive.

He literally saved my life twice. He’s preformed all of my GI surgeries. His bedside manner isn’t awesome but his skills as a surgeon are. Think about it, half the time his patients are sedated. He’s not talking to them. I’d much rather bet on skill than office manner. The only reason I’m alive to write this review is because of Dr Goldstein.

I've been seeing Dr Goldstein for over 15 yrs. I don't know why it took me so long to realize that he was not the Dr. for me. His bedside manor is terrible, and he acts as though he could care less about his patients, as long as the money keeps flowing in. He does not spend enough time with his patients, and does not explain his findings with respect to ' Why the patient came to him in the first place' ! Therefore, I cannot recommend this Dr. to anyone who needs a Colon Rectal Specialist!

Barely spent time explaining the procedure he was conducting, acted annoyed at questions, seemed like he was in a big rush, as if he had too many patients to deal with. Also brought along 2 other people into the room, did not ask my permission, and I assume they were medical students there to observe, but there was no acknowledgement of that. Abruptly left the room after procedure, little information given on care, pain management, follow-up, etc. 2nd procedure did not work, so I did not go back

Dr. Goldstein performed my Mom's colonoscopy and perforated her bowel. She had to go through an emergency surgery to remove her sigmoid colon. The 2 hour outpatient colonoscopy ended up with 7 nights stay at the hospital and the rehab facility. Dr. Goldstein is not trust worthy. He does not spend time explaining the medical condition in details. He is not willing to provide the patient and the family with the root cause of the complication and the short term and long term impact of the surgery.
