Lady at window asked me for my referral when I showed up--never mentioned I needed to bring it when the appointment was made. I went to my car, logged into my insurance and found it. Had the referral number to her within 10 minutes after my appointment start. Told me I had to reschedule--wasted my entire afternoon now they want me to come back. BTW: The curb appeal of this place is horrible, location is horrible right next to the dog park, unkempt, overgrown, etc--perhaps this Dr could not be so greedy and put a little of his wealth into his office. The inside is not better. Don't waste your time with this "institute."

I interviewed 3 surgeons to perform double hernia surgery. I chose Dr. Goldstein because he is deeply experienced and does the same sports as me. He was the only surgeon that said I could resume sports without risk by 2 weeks after laparoscopic surgery. 1 week after surgery was rough with a lot of pain but by week 2 I was able to resume sports with little pain. By 4 weeks no pain. He allowed me to text him at any time with questions and concerns. You'll wish other doctors are this good.
