Dr. Johnson is great, just be prepared to wait at least an hour before seeing her—I even tried scheduling an appointment at off-hours and still had to wait an hour.

Very through and patient. She took the time to learn a little about me outside of my medical history. She was recommended to me and I am very happy. Wait time however was the only negative. Maybe it was just that day.

There is something very warm and comforting about Dr. Johnson's presence. She is a wonderful doctor, and is very caring and attentive. Most doctors in New York want you in and out of their office, but Dr. Johnson listens and is very thoughtful with her responses. Highly recommend!

Confirming the Appointment: I received a call from the office to confirm my appointment and my check-in information was requested. As a first time Zocdoc user, I figured I missed a step and had to go back to complete some information.With the receptionist on the phone, I told her what I had completed and it aligned with the information she requested. I then went back and re-entered the information, to ensure that I submitted it properly. For the next week or two I received several calls from the same individual stating that my appointment could not be confirmed due to incomplete information. The day before the appointment I received another call requesting my information. When I went online to view my appointment I saw that a completed check-in form (on the office's letterhead) had been saved to the appointment. I called back to the office to get a clarification of what the issue was and was placed on hold for 20 minutes. I emailed Zocdoc and they ensured that I had completed the check-in form and that the office had it on file. Arriving for the Appointment: The receptionist pulled up my forms and confirmed that they had them on file. She handed me a clip board with the same forms and told me to fill it out again, because she couldn't print it. She also informed me that I should have come a bit earlier since this was my first time in the office and forms needed to be completed. I noticed a sign that listed the required fees that will be charged if a patient needs to doctor to fill out any forms. On several occasions I informed the office that I had forms that needed to be filled out and asked for additional information. The one time I was given a response, i was just told to "have the forms available". After about 15 minutes, I left. The way an office is ran says a lot about a doctor. By then I had interacted with two different people, neither of whom appeared to be competent. The Appointment: (see above) After the Appointment: I spoke with a member of the Zocdoc support team to inform of the issue and ask about Zocdoc requirements. the representative was very helpful and I'd recommend reaching out to their support team to address any concerns.

Wait time has not improved, probably gotten worse, since my first visit. At this point I've been waiting almost 3 hours just to be seen for probably 5 minutes.

Dr. Johnson is really nice as is her staff. The office is clean and since I had an evening appointment was also fairly empty. I will advise for those who need prescriptions for birth control, Dr. Johnson doesn't do that, you have to go to a OBGYN.

Dr. Johnson is a very competent, caring and mostly cautious geiatric internist. However, if her staff improves their clerical follow-up skills her practice will be more efficient.

Always professional and never cease to provide excellent care. I live more than a 1000 miles from Golda's office, but she will always remain my primary care doctor. This is a doctor who truly loves what she does, and puts herpatients first. I can truly say this because she been my Doctor for over 24 yrs........What a short time to evaluate someone.

I loved Dr. Johnson. She was thorough, thoughtful and understanding. I don't have anything specifically "wrong" with me but a few issues I'm concerned about; Dr. Johnson took these very seriously and had a number of recommendations. She alsofound an issue during the exam that either just recently sprang up or that my past doctors had missed. I am very happy to have her as my new primary care physician.

Prior to going to the doctor office, I read the reviews. I agree with the other patients that stated that she listens to her pts. Yes the exam rooms are small, and there was a wait. But nobody has mentionedher staff. Her staff members that I dealt with this evening are wonderful, knowledgable and warm. They play an important part of the visit. I may consider making her my pcp

This was my first visit and Dr. Golda was patient and listens to what you have to say. Very soft spoken but has a sense of humor with some personal questions that need to be asked. Her examining rooms are verysmall but all in all I will definitely go back to see her for my followups. Long walk from subway!
