I very much appreciated Dr. Goldman's concern about helping me with this condition prior to my leaving for a trip. His assistant was awesome as well. They both helped me to get a prescription I needed quickly. I am grateful for the care I received.

I was extremely disappointed with the appointment I had with Dr. Goldman. It seemed he had already made up his mind what was wrong with me before he had even entered the room. He told me that the wounds on my legs that are not healing were due to the fact I pick at scabs. He refused to listen to me OR my wife (who was at the appointment with me) when we repeatedly told him that I do not pick at my scabs. He seemed to not be aware of the fact I have DIABETES and have had my colon removed due to an extensive history of Ulcerative Colitis/Colon Cancer resulting in my now having several vitamin deficiencies and blew us off when we told him so. He never even examined my legs and rushed us out of the office after telling me to trim my nails so i couldn't pick at my scabs any more and once again ignored me and my wife telling him in no uncertain terms that I do not. I have honestly never felt as unimportant as I did during this appointment.

Dr. Goldman was extremely offensive and helpful. He answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. The wait time was well over 45 minutes but I was ok with it because of the level of care I received.

Dr. Goldman was running late due to an emergency procedure. I waited in the room for 45 minutes before he was able to come in to see me. Originally I was informed he was running late about 15 minutes, however that turned into 45 minutes. I understand emergencies come up. I just wish someone would have come in to the room to give me an update on when he would be coming in to see me. The doctor and the nurses were very nice, and the Dr. apologized for running late. The Dr. answered all my questions, and made me feel very comfortable given the biopsy I had to have done was in an area where it could prove to be an uncomfortable situation for me.

07/27/2019
I called approximately 1/2 hr before my appointment to find out if Dr. Goldman was running on time, as I am only 15 min away. I was told he was on time. I got there 20 min later and was told there was a 45 min wait which turned into over an hour. I waited over an hour for my first appointment, that's why I called. I was to pick up my grand kids which turned into a real problem. If she had told me there was a wait I could have made other arrangements.

This was a 6-month follow up appointment with the Dermatologist. It was good other than they scheduled 2 people for the same time.

I thought my visit was a waste of time, he told me that I had to find another dermatologist that carried a cream for the dark spots on my face which I thought was wrong as seeing that he should have something to offer himself.

wait time is usually half an hourbut I really like Dr Goldman.....so I understand

06/12/2019
the doctor was running 45 min. behind. that can happen as he provides the time needed to ensure one gets the proper care and that is not a concern to me. what i don't understand is why with automated phones and my chart, a patient cannot be notified to allow them to show up a little later.
