The staff is very polite and Dr. Goldstein was also very polite and seemed caring. Being courteous to patients is more important than you would believe. I have confidence in their abilities.

Amazing surgeon, highly skilled and I ended up with 20/20 vision in both eyes after my cataract surgery. He used the laser for the surgery, because he always provides the best technology. If you are looking for the best doctor with the best staff, call his office!

I am over 10 years out from surgery, and my vision is still perfect. Dr. Goldstein is the best, and his staff is smiley and courteous. They always introduce themselves to me to make a more personal experience

I had cataract in both eyes. Crystalline lenses were inserted with both eyes, a year apart and I can see again. I recommend this doctor highly. A pure professional.

I had a problem with dry eyes last year and could not wear my contacts. His office staff was able to get me in quickly for an appointment. Dr. Goldstein ordered medication that corrected this and now I can wear my contacts as I want to. His office staff is excellent to work with also. I would recommend this office to everyone!

I am a diabetic and have trusted my eyes to Doctor Goldstein for many years. A few years back I noticed some little black dots in my vision, I called the office and they asked me to come in immediately. Much to my surprise I had a torn retina. Needless to say, I was frightened and concerned. Dr. Goldstein reassured me and lasered and repaired the tear right there in his office immediately. I recently had the first of my two cataract surgeries. I highly recommend Dr. Goldstein.

I got LASIK done with Dr Goldstein in November 2011 and it has been so wonderful. I appreciated his warm nature, personability, and detailed explanations of what to expect throughout the process. You can tell he is an expert in the field and my eyes work great 7 years later. I also enjoy his newsletters (some of the few newsletters I actually read) because they are informative on useful topics and they are not sent out super frequently. I'll add that the price was definitely reasonable too!

Every time I go to this office, I am impressed by Dr. Goldstein and his staff. It is amazing that over all of the years that he has been in practice, that he still takes time to answer all my questions. And the staff remains happy, pleasant, and never seem flustered or hurried, even when the office is really busy. My LASIK eyes are still 20/20!!

I absolutely recommend Dr. Goldstein to my family and friends. He and his staff are very responsive to my needs. I am impressed by the timeliness of Dr. Goldstein's response to my calls and questions. The office is welcoming and well appointed and I didn't wait at all. I trust Dr. Goldstein completely. He performed my Lasik surgery 18 years ago and continues to care for eye health. He always explains everything clearly and in language that makes perfect sense. He is a superior physician.

My new LASIK eyes are both 20/20 and have been since the day after surgery last month. Dr. Goldstein is the best, his staff is so nice and funny and respectful! I have never had such a great experience with a doctor.

I've never met a staff so kind and attentive! Dr. Goldstein gave my grandmother (who I drive to the appointments) great vision, and the best care anyone could give.

I will not recommend him anymore. He used to be an awesome doctor, but now he has so many patients and his practice is always so full -between the irritated office staff and frusted patients, this office is a mess.

I am so grateful and thankful for Dr. Goldstein. I knew that I was in good hands even though I was reluctant to have surgery. My cataract surgery turned out so well, that I barely ever need glasses anymore. God bless you!
