I had to wait a long time for a first appointment which was the case with all the RA doctors in the area. Dr. Golembek diagnosed and prescribed medication that took care of the pain immediately. He tests my blood each time I go to be sure the medication doesn't effect any other organs. I'm in and out when I go in for an appointment which is very good.

this review is so overdue! I had been going to dr. Golombek for about 29 years. He has been the most kind, caring and wonderful doctor! I suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and I had done very well. Sometimes when the weather changes, I don't fell well. However, it is short-lived because dr. Golombek is sure to give me the right medications so I can feel better. I trust him with my disease completely. I will not even considering moving to another state because I don't think I will be able to find a doctor with so much knowledge and such a caring spirit.

I saw Dr. G. due to severe pain in my hand/shoulder. A hand surgeon I had seen 6 years ago took xrays, told me that my hands were, "loaded with arthritis, and that I was an anomaly because I had an extra 'hammy bone' in each hand." That with the arthritic inflammation caused nerve impingement. I garden so the pain decreased after summer, but is now intolerable. Dr. G. just gave me a small shot of cortisone in my hand and shoulder and a pamphlet on a leather thumb brace to purchase. Didn't help.

I live in Delaware but was a patient of Dr Golembek years ago when I lived in NJ. I have Wegeners Granulomatosis and was only given steroids by the Delaware Rheumatologist. I knew I was in a major flare and decided to see Dr. Golombek. He put me on the proper medication and I feel, saved my life. He is my Rheumatologist again.

I had a wonderful experience from the moment I stepped into the reception area. Wait time was roughly 10-13 minutes. The doctor spent time with me, really listening. He was able to diagnose my condition, and gave me medications. This medicine is helping!

Dr. Golembek is an excellent, kind, caring physician. He was able to diagnose me when some others could not and he has been great with follow-up.
