  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

Dr, Goldberg was very thorough in preparing me for my operation, providing me with options for my surgery with the risks and rewards for each option! I have a high regard for Dr. Goldberg To say I have a high regard for Dr. Goldberg is an under statement! He was informative concerning my options for my hand surgery, stating each options risk and rewards. We agreed on my course of treatment. He is quite thorough in describing the operation process I was about to encounter!

The Dr. used all medical words that I did not understand.Please tell him to dumb it down. I asked the PA to write me a letter explaining every thing the Dr. said. I still have not heard from them.

Dr. Goldberg, explained every thing in detail, when I hesitated & felt I needed to hear his explanation over again of what could be done to help me he explained it over again to me. DR.Goldberg was calm, and not being growling when he explained it again to me. He was patient with me and understanding my concerns. You can be proud in having Dr. Goldberg representing your facility!!

I was not satisfied w/how my knuckle fused. Dr. Goldberg stated that I had good range of motion & that the results were the best I would get. I wanted the bone pinned. He refused to do it & told me to get a 2nd opinion.

I went to see Dr. Goldberg about my thumb. He felt my trigger ginger needed attention first. After he operated he didn't seem concerned. He said it was up to me at what degree I wanted my finger to be straight. How much I would exercise it. My finger is still bent.

Also Dr. Goldbergs PA was very polite & helpful.

The original diagnosis of the problem turned out to be incorrect. This was determined minutes before surgery. I have been seeing this doctor for one and a half years.

EXCELLENT CARE OVERALL!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK TEAM! :)

everyone was nice. every one was under enormous pressure and rushed. This is a system problem, not apersonel problem. Need more assistants and more docs for hand surgery. Too squeezed. Hire another hand surgeon for god's sake!

Provider is excellent! Knows his job and not only has great clinical skills but also great bedside manner. Even though he may have only spent 5 min with me it felt like it was much longer. He answered all of my questions with detailed explanation.

Dr. Goldberg restored my faith in the medical community. I felt he cared for me as a person and not just a number to be rushed through. Very caring and helpful.

It really bothers me that a doctor will treat you and bill workers comp but will not say anything in your favor.If a doctor who is not willing to go to bat for their Patient for workers comp should not see worker's comp patients.
