Patient Comments (8)
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).

I'm new to the area, got my new Tiffany glasses and I love them. The staff was respectful, great and so friendly. Definitely referring my friends and family.
We are happy to hear you were satisfied with our services. Thank you for the nice comments.

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.

First of all I drive from Nevada to see Dr. Goldban every year for my routine eye examinations and having a problem with my eyes have driven other every week for treatment. Staff: The greatest staff, you will not find a complete staff more friendly and helpful. Dr. Goldban: Wonderful. He sits and takes time explaining everything going on with your eyes and answers all your questions. If you are willing to take the drive it is worth it. I love this group and would recommend this office.
Thank you! I have shared your comment with our staff. I love to show what a great job they are doing and how appreciated they are.

If you value your time even somewhat, I would not recommend scheduling an appointment with Dr. Goldban. I understand things come up and doctors run late. So after 35 minutes in the waiting room, I was told that he was running late, and it would be another 20-25 minutes before I even made it to the exam room!!! The receptionist offered no explanation and offered to re-schedule but I declined. I'm sure he's a great dr, but I won't be back and I'll be sure to pass this experience on to others.
Thank you for your feedback. My name is Rebecca, I'm the new Office Manager at Desert Ophthalmology. I'm sorry your experience at our office did not meet your expectations, I do understand how important your time is. Since I started her in November 2016, I have implemented changes to help reduce wait time and also have conducted trainings on how to improve our service to patients. I will use your experience in our next training to help improve our communications skills for future patients.
