I didn't get an appointment as quick as I thought I would like, because he was on vacation. He didn't have anyone who could see me. I had to wait about 3 weeks to see him. I did go to emergency for guidance.

When the actual appointment finally arrived Dr. Goldenberg was extremely rude, egotistical, condescending and dismissive. He doesn't have current records transferred ahead of time, and the office staff didn't have things entered. He didn't take a complete medical history, but he spent a lot of time on the computer with old information. When he learned that I had 2 specialist handling some of my care, his attitude became worse. He seemed immediately irritated that I did not want to transfer the care from my specialist to him. My physical consisted of listening to my heart and lungs. He told me doing blood work annually is old fashioned, even though I am 73yrs old. He checked my thyroid & checked for Hepatitis C. I wonder how he thinks he can catch potential problems with no blood work and a poor physical. I am retired from the Medical profession, and we have lived all over the U. S. Therefore, I have worked with many doctors professionally over the years and I have had many different doctors as my primary care physicians. I have always had respect and excellent rapport with each of them. This is the worst doctor I have ever experienced professionally or for my personal care. His attitude was unacceptable. I believe all patients should be treated with respect and it is disappointing that someone who is a Diplomat of the Academy behaves so poorly.

Little focus on individual care or willingness to seek superior care. Example: Hyaluronic injections or statin alternatives for high cholesterol.

Provider stated that they would find out where I could take an uncommon blood test to see if I'm a carrier of a genetic condition and that this information would show up in MyChart. I'm still waiting for that information.

Dr. Goldenberg is a jewel in your system. He is direct and caring in his delivery of information. Not that I am looking forward to my next visit, but I am thankful it will be with him.

He was extremely egotistical and rude, and did not listen to very real things going on with me, and said I only need mental help. I have never seen this guy before, and even my very quiet husband, who I had come in with me, was thrown by this persons VERY rude and condescending attitude. Not a thing was resolved and I never want to see him again. He was wrong in his "assumptions" about me, and it did not make me feel good AT ALL!
100

11/15/2017
I do not believe this provider is accepting new patients. I appreciate his kindness and sense of acceptability he has with me.

[...] If someone said they were looking for a primary care provider I would recommend Dr. Goldenburg.

He has sent me to 2 other providers and I was very pleased. I feel he would only send me to someone He would go to himself. someone he trusts.

I had one issue that I wanted taken care of that had bothered me for 8 months. after examination, the provider said to let him him when it is bothering me and we can look into doing something about it.

Dr. Goldenberg was dismissive and condescending. He didn't take a comprehensive medical history, and when presented with a comprehensive picture of the multitude of prior health concerns I was seeking to address, he was curt and oblivious. He minimized my concerns not with sage medical wisdom, but by instead treating me like I was either overreacting at best, or disingenuous at worst. He was flippant, curt, and I will not be seeking medical treatment from him or this facility in the future.

09/25/2017
Dr. Goldenberg was awesome. I really appreciate his examination process and how he took the time to address my concerns. As a healthcare provider myself. I can attest that I have full trust in Dr. Goldenberg's ability and attitude as a physician!

The DR has my medical history and knows I have serious life long mobility problems but set me up to take a stress test using a treadmill. This method was not the proper method for me and did not get me the answers I needed about my heart.

Took over 45 days to get appointment.

He spends too much time on the computer and too little time specifically reviewing my needs or answering my questions.

After many years seems disinterested in listening or utilizing diagnostic tools routinely available. "Father Knows Best" vs. pt. experience.

[...] my physician or medical assistant didn't actually place the orders for the tests and vaccinations I needed so it was a little bit of a run around process trying to get that fixed. Also when I came in a couple days later for a test again that test was not ordered so the medical assistant had to track down the doctor and get the test ordered which took about 30 minutes of wait time

I feel like my health decisions are in safe hands

This is not my regular doctor. I only went here because I wasn't able to get into my 'regular' doctor for 2 months because I'm considered a "new" patient since I hadn't seen her in 2 years (insurance had changed). I needed a scrip refill and couldn't wait the 2 months for a "new" patient appointment with the doctor i had seen in the past. I had to wait 40 minutes once I arrived at the office. I didn't like some of the comments Dr. Goldenberg made when I asked about getting an order for a mammogram. And, I requested to have my Vitamin D tested with my bloodwork, but he refused saying "it is expensive". Also, this isn't my "medical home" so I wouldn't drive this far to see this dr. again. I'd prefer to go to the office in Happy Valley that is much closer to where I live.

I love dr. & his staff.

I have noticed that a diagnosis sometimes changes without any discussion at all with me. I find this out by going through my records on My Chart.

06/21/2017
Dr. Goldenberg is a knowable internal medicine doctor that we highly respect for his genuine concern about our medical health. He is thorough and able to explain things in layman's terms which makes it easy for us to understand any treatments being administered. Excellent doctor in our opinion.
