06/18/2018
Doctor was pressed for time. Did not listen to me, cut off my sentences and made clinical judgements and decision based on limited information, if not, impulsive clinical decision making.
100

06/17/2018
He can evaluate objective info o(tests, etc) from the test results. We usually talk about social/emotional/experience things that impact health and are important...and more interesting to talk about. When we need to talk about diabetes specifically, since it's hard to manage, we talk about that, too.
100

06/11/2018
it's always been good.

03/20/2018
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.

02/12/2018
the doctor was kind and professional. very knowledgeable.
 

02/12/2018
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.
90

02/12/2018
This was my first appointment with Dr. Goldenberg. He researched my past medical records and definitely addressed all my questions and concerns. He developed a plan to address my medical concerns.
100

02/06/2018
Doctor very understanding regarding a very emotional situation and very supportive.

01/14/2018
very professional. This was my first visit. Listened to my questions and treated me with respect.
60

01/13/2018
Little focus on individual care or willingness to seek superior care. Example: Hyaluronic injections or statin alternatives for high cholesterol.

excellent, very good.

12/13/2017
subtle sense of humor.....nice!
90

11/29/2017
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.
100

11/23/2017
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.
 

11/16/2017
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

11/14/2017
I do not believe this provider is accepting new patients. I appreciate his kindness and sense of acceptability he has with me.
90

11/08/2017
[...] If someone said they were looking for a primary care provider I would recommend Dr. Goldenburg.
100

10/31/2017
This was an initial visit with a primary care physician as we had just moved to this area. I'm very satisfied with my new primary care person as well as the office staff.

I have been a patient of Dr. Goldenberg since 1988 and he has always treated me with kindness and respect.
100

10/08/2017
Going to the doctor is a pleasure with this clinic. Everyone is caring & friendly.
100

10/03/2017
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.
80

10/03/2017
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.
 

10/03/2017
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.
100

09/24/2017
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!
70

09/19/2017
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.
