Dr. Goldman took his time to evaluate me and asked many questions. He wasn't quick to just prescribe medication and send me on my way.

It was a fantastic appointment! I'm truly grateful for his time and he not only gave me a plan to help me but we came up with a plan A, B, and C. It was a big help and i havea follow-up appointment coming up with him. There were a couple times throughout the appointment where I wasn't quite sure if he was listening or just notating but he seemed all in all to help me a lot.

Dr. Brian Goldman is a Psychiatrist who understands that Psychiatrist's are in fact medical doctors; and though their area of specialty is in treating Psychiatric disorders it is also their responsibility and duty to try and identify underlyingmedical disorders that can often manifest with psychiatric symptoms. Identify and treat the underlying medical disorder and the psychiatric symptoms will go into remission. Unfortunately Dr. Goldman's approach which is the appropriate medical approach in Psychiatry, is rarely in fact used by most practicing psychiatrist. This is why I give him my highest recommendations. If you are experiencing psychiatric symptoms, which are real and serious medical conditions; you should want to see a Psychiatrist who is not all consumed by the DSM-IV, (which is not in fact based on a medical model) but a Psychiatrist that remembers and acts like the medical doctor that he or she in fact are.

Finally, a doctor who listened to me and not just a printout of lab tests. I have been suffering for about six months trying to solve my problems alone. After seeing Dr. Goldman less than a week ago, some meds changes,life is looking brighter. Thank you so much, Dr. Goldman.
