    I would love (all) my doc(s) to actually take two minutes before they leave the room at the end of the visit to ask me if I might have any questions.Visits with high-level specialists are filled with details and new information oftimes I am still processing when they (doc and resident) are up and gone. To pause briefly - just long enough to pose the question - would be really deeply appreciated!

    Dr. Goldberg is in my opinion one of the best Doctors in the world! Saved my life with the 3 surgeries I had back in 2005 2006 & 2010. Plus all the follow-up treatments and visits. I've been blessed & lucky to have him assigned to me since the start of my sinusitis issues in 2005. Don't ever let him get away from your clinic!

    Dr Goldberg is the best.
    Aug 18, 2022
    The resident who saw me at the beginning of my visit along with someone else in training who was not identified did not identify herself as a resident. She was extremely nervous and shaky especially while performing the exam. This made me feel really uncomfortable. I also would have liked someone to ask me if it was okay to see a resident.

    Mar 03, 2022
