    Always world class. Takes the time to listen. Never rushes. Huge deal for patients since so many doctors seem in a hurry.

    Dr. Goldberg was exceptional! Extremely pleased with my experience after one visit. I had seen a previous provider for my issue and left disappointed (I was seen for only 5 minutes). Dr. Goldberg took care and time to explain everything that he was seeing and thinking about in his diagnosis. Very pleased.

    Dr. Goldberg may be one of the best doctors on earth If not the best already! This is not an exaggeration. His 2 doctor residents that I met are very nice and fortunate to be learning from Dr. Goldberg. They will carry on his legacy once they go out on their own. Lots to learn between now and when that happens but it'll happen before they know it! They both seem to be very capable doctors already.

    Nov 03, 2022
    Dr Goldberg is the best.
    Oct 20, 2022
    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!
    Oct 18, 2022
    So far so good
    Oct 14, 2022
    Dr Goldberg is my favorite UCSF provider
    Oct 13, 2022
    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!
    Oct 08, 2022
    Dr. Goldberg is the best! He was my surgeon in 2008 and is still the best doctor I have seen over many years.
    Oct 04, 2022
    Have and will continue to highly recommend Dr Goldberg to anyone who needs a skilled surgeon with excellent communication skills and compassion

    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.
    Aug 06, 2022
    Dr. Goldberg and his team area 10 star practice group!!!

    I don't know how to make a follow-up appointment.
    Mar 03, 2022
    I got out knowing what I should do but no clear idea what my next actions should be. Call someone? Wait for a call? Wait for a message? Talk to my referring doctor again?
