I've gone to numerous primary care physicians over the years, but Dr. Goldansky is by far the best. He is thoughtful, caring, and listens to his patients. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Dr. Goldansky is straight to the point, come prepared! I love that in a doctor, give me all the facts. He goes fast, so ask questions. The more you know about yourself, the more he can help. I loved him and am thrilled with my new doctor!

He is my primary care physician and he is always on time and always very helpful. You can almost always get same day appts (if not you can get in with somebody else in the office) and if you have problems/questions the office staff calls back very quickly!

I love Dr Goldansky. I've never had a PCP. Now that I'm older I'm glad I found him. He is a wonderful Doctor.

I was a first time patient. The front office staff had no idea that I had used zocdoc and was terse and almost rude when I stated that was how I had made the appointment. The wait time was a goodhour before I was shown a room and then another 30minutes before the doc showed up. Dr. Goldansky spent most of the appointment trash talking the pharmacy I use and seemed more interested in pushing a new drug onto me than working with me on what I had been using. My experience was not good and I wouldn't recommend this office.

So happy that I moved into this neighborhood and got to see Dr. Goldansky! He was incredibly professional, and wanted to hear all of my symptoms, even those that weren't necessarily relevant. Amazing experience with little wait, if any.

Due to a current bout of bronchitis, I needed to see a doctor quickly. When I arrived, the front desk staff was actually pleasant. I was seen by the doctor in less an 30 minutes. Dr Goldansky is the first practitionerI have seen (outside of an OB/Gyn) in over a decade. He was personable, witty and actually LISTENED to what I had to say. He reviewed medical history with me, performed a basic diagnostic to confirm the numbers the assistant had obtained and to get new ones. He gave relevant suggestions regarding my health (not rote, dismissive info one could get online), tasked me with several items, gave demonstrations, and generally made me feel like I was a human patient, not a number preventing him from getting to the next number in line. I am happily returning in a few weeks for a full physical and I am happy to say I have found my new PCP.
