His office called me two hours before my appointment to tell me in a very rude and decisive tone that they were going to cancel my appointment because Dr. Goldenberg did not accept my insurance, "or else I would be a self-pay patient". It took me more than an hour to convince them that my insurance was actually accepted by Dr. Goldenberg - for the longest time they were not listening to what I was telling them. In the end, I was right, which they eventually conceded, after they had been very stubborn and wasted a lot of everybody's time. As the icing on the cake, after this, nobody at the office felt the urge to apologise to me, they only seemed annoyed with me that I had been right and they had been wrong. I had to explicitly draw an apology out of them, which I eventually got. All this obivously already made me feel extremely unwelcome and uncomfortable. Dr. Goldenberg himself did not seem to take me or my problems eriously - he started by asking some questions about my personal life, about which he then immediately made a joke at my expense to his assistant, which I thought very inappropriate. He gave the impression that he was in a rush and that my problems were not serious enough to be considered by him. I found his manner business-like and impersonal. He dismissed any serious worries instantly instead of taking them seriously, listening to them carefully and taking the time to actually take away my worries, even if they were maybe unnecessary, the worries were still there! The actual time I saw Dr. Goldenberg was less than five minutes, during which it was mostly him talking to his assistant and hardly ever making eye contact with me. Both Dr. Goldenberg and his office still have a lot to learn about the psychological and patient-oriented side of things.

We travel from Queens to see Dr. Goldenberg. Found his listing while looking for a psoriasis specialist. I immediately saw the difference between his attention and interest and the dermatologist we had been seeing locally. The trip is more than worth every minute. What can be more important than taking the best care of yourself?

Dr Goldenberg is by far the best dermatologist. His personality and skill set is unmatched by any other Doctor. The only downside is that the wait to see him is sometimes longer then expected; I didn't get called back until almost an hour after my scheduled time.

The doctor didn't review my history I spent 15 minutes detailing in the paperwork at all. His bedside manner was pretty terrible. I felt like the fellow had a better grip on how to treat patients. He spend less than 6 minutes with me. Tried to give me a script and left. Not impressed at all.

I came here for a typical skin check. Upon coming into the exam room, he quickly opened my gown without asking - I wasn't prepared and felt violated. I'm sure he didn't intend this - but he should be more sensitive.

I have never written a zocdoc review before but was so offended about my experience this morning I had to share as a precaution. After making me wait for 40 mins (in an overcrowded and unpleasant waiting room) the very rude receptionist assured me I was "next, he is running late" with absolutely no apology. Yet, when the doctor emerged he took a pharma rep back for a meeting instead of seeing me. Incredibly rude. Don't go. Plenty of other dermatologists in UES.
