After waiting a little over an hour from my appointment time, I finally saw the doctor. He asked me what brought me into the office. As I was in the middle of my second sentence of describing my symptoms, he interruptedme with the diagnosis and treatment plan. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy it was an easy diagnosis, and I have no reason to believe it is inaccurate. But after waiting over an hour I would have appreciated being "heard out" a little. Total face time was about 90 seconds.

Wait time today was horrible. I waited two hours for a 12:00 appointment. Came early and wasn’t seen until after 2pm. I do like this doctor I just wish they actually went by appointment time. Usually I wait about a halfhour to be seen but this was ridiculous. Aside from that the doctor is amazing. He is very knowledgeable and good with ensuring I receive the proper medication and treatment.

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 formsI had already filled out on Zocdoc, but that's not a huge deal.

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?!

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 timeefficient. 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'munsure 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 helpingso thats a plus. Would go back, but will make sure to ask more questions.

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 rightaway. 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?

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 aconsultation?! This place is nothing but a huge scam. What a mammoth waste of time and money!

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.

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 donot know what else to say. It was excellent and successful consultation visit. The rest is after I start the treatment.

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.
