Dr. Goldban is an amazing doctor. Great manner in which he cares. But more than that I was legally blind in both eyes and now I see 20/15 in both eyes. I have not been able to see clearly in 35 years. His staff is amazing and I am so glad I found him!!! You won't be sorry!!!

I've been a patient for over four years. Two cataract surgeries, procedures, General eye care for glaucoma eyes and so on. He's the best ophthalmologist in the Coachella Valley and he possesses excellent credentials (education).

Nice guy. Knowledgeable, hurried, lacking patient education skills on risk factors attendant to cataract surgery, i.e., likelihood of torn retinas. He's overbooked frequently which impacts on wait times and hurried visits. Patient education takes time.

Thank you for your comments, I will use this as a training tool; on what we can do to better service our patients. We are currently working on our schedules to reduce wait times. Our goal is to provide great service; as well as respect the time of all our patients.
