Verified Patient Reviews
Will never book an appointment with Dr. Goldberg again. Spent a total of 3 minutes before having me out the door. Did not help me with my issues Don't waste your time going to him if you have a dermatology problem.
Although I liked the doctor and nurses, it took them more than three weeks to give me my biopsy results (I was promised 2 weeks). I don't think it's normal for patient to call everyday and ask for lab results.
Everything went very well, I was in and out quickly and they forwarded the prescription I needed to my pharmacy in a timely manner. My only complaint is that I had to fill out paperwork that was redundant with the forms I had already filled out on Zocdoc, but that's not a huge deal.
It seemed like he was in a rush, but other than that very good!
Such a nice guy and explained everything thoroughly would definitely see him again!
Waste of my time and money
I went for a routine cancer screening. Dr Goldberg spent about sixty seconds doing the exam.. Much of it from several feet away. Never turned on a light. I was shocked by the lack of thoroughness. I guess this is really a Botox and filler shop?!
I arrived about 30 minutes before my appointment and they were able to see me within 10 minutes of waiting.
Great! He was very friendly and very helpful, and answered all my questions thoroughly.
Great guy - pretty funny. And he will get you out so quick. I was amazed that it was so simple. I kept waiting for it to get complicated or annoying - but my visit was neither. Simple, practical, and time efficient. Which for this New Yorker was just what I wanted.
The office is nice and the staff is friendly however, the actual doctor visit with Dr Goldberg seemed rushed and it's obvious that he has his own line of skin care products (which won't be covered by your insurance) and i'm unsure of what makes them better than other products that are covered. I don't see myself visiting the office again, just because he didn't go over other options with me. It was kind of like, you either use his products or figure it out yourself. But he was cheerful and he is in a magazine but idk how confident I am that he really helped.
Quick and to the point. In and out in less than 30 minutes. Would've liked if he spent some time looking at my skin, and providing more feedback regarding my condition. Prescribed a topical lotion for my condition and it's helping so thats a plus. Would go back, but will make sure to ask more questions.
Very professional environment. Dr. Goldberg was easy to converse with and answered my inquires clearly. His support (nursing) staff was excellent and instructed me regarding current and future treatment.
I'm in NYC from out of town on a business trip, so when I got a rash I had to find the best doctor that was available asap. I made the right choice. Dr. Goldberg knew what my problem was right away. His staff called in the prescription, and I was able to pick it up from the pharmacy a couple blocks away instantly. I would highly recommend him. He's a very nice guy, explains what's wrong and what to expect. I'll definitely be back if I ever have issues in the future.
If ZoccDoc sends them my information, why do I have to fill out forms again with my info? Can this time be shortened?
Doc.Goldberg made surgery-lump on the forehead almost one year ago,it's still did not gone at all and there is big red spot!!! He did not come for appointment without any notes!!length of any appointment less ,than 5 min!! During which he just prescribed expensive medication and say a lot of familiars jokes,am very dissopointed of this doc Goldberg!!
Dr Goldberg and his staff were in one word-- weird. The fact that he's a board certified physician is almost comical. I mean which "physican" truts in with two pretty girls and leaves in 10 seconds with useless advise? That's a consultation?! This place is nothing but a huge scam. What a mammoth waste of time and money!
Great doctor the best at cosmetics in the NJ area. Period. Wait time is not so great. But there obviously is a reason. He does spend time and does care a lot.
Doctor was late almost 40 minutes. He did not complete dermatology check up attentively. And of course, charge money before appointment start, but when I already change to hospital gown, was unacceptable.
overall when you have a new patient, you should spend more time on their consultation and less time making them wait to see them.
Well respected doctor with a significant amount of expertise.
I got the impression he was trying to sell me expensive things that I did not need. I would consider looking elsewhere.
It was a wonderful visit.Dr Goldberg makes a visit very comfortable
Professional, efficient, up to the point
The Staff were very professional, helpful, and friendly. the patients coordinator Ms. Tina was the excellent to communicate with her. Doctor Goldberg welcomed me with a friendly smile, explained in details, he was very good listener. I do not know what else to say. It was excellent and successful consultation visit. The rest is after I start the treatment.
I hate when assistant offered/recommended unnecessary cream that is expensive and not really needed.
slight wait in patient room. didnt ask about history or foods eaten to make better assessment. was in and out in less than 10.
Enthusiastic, energetic and professional medical staff. Dr. Goldberg relaxed, unrushed, asked questions before beginning, and asked twice during procedure if I was comfortable. They really seemed to care. Posh, clean facilities in the Galleria building.
He is a pro !
He didn't even check my wound & jumped to conclusions without even asking me what had happened & when i tried to explain, he cut me short abruptly & prescribed something and 'was telling me to come back Tuesday!"
Good guy... got right to the point.
Quick and easy
