a great salesman. didn't even look at my symptoms. pushed procedures immediately. similar to all other non-five-star reviews here. "it is covered by your insurance". didn't listen. didn't want to discuss actual problem. couldn't explain how proposed multiple procedures would relate to problem at hand. beware.

Similar to someone mentioned previously, he listened but didn't do any examination or blood work. He was mainly pushing for a endoscopy session that will involve sedation, which makes sense because he runs the center that does that procedure.With first time having these symptoms, I was not sure if the procedure was necessary therefore I decided against it. After I expressed I do not want to do the procedure, he basically rushed me out of the door w/o giving me the chance to ask any follow-up questions.

I always felt rushed when visiting Dr Goldberg. If you dont have a serious issues like UC or Crohns then Dr Goldberg wont be helpful. In my multiple visits Dr Goldberg never has actually examined me. I think he is aver good Dr but was not a fit for me.

While I trust Dr. Goldberg's medical expertise, he was very quick to push me to a procedure, and especially brushed under the carpet medical expenses. I've been left with a large bill for what was really a precautionary procedure, and myconsultation with him really brushed through this with a repeated, "It's covered by your insurance." While I don't doubt that I was in expert hands, I also feel like he was an expert salesman too and rushed me into it without discussing all aspects of the procedure. Better safe than sorry, I suppose, but the feeling of being blindsided is always awful, and frankly, I'm quite angry and feel a little hoodwinked. Make sure you give yourself the time you deserve to ask all the necessary questions, because this guy is eager to get you in and out the door. That's probably a good thing for some, but just know what you're in for.

Both Dr. Goldberg's midtown office & his Westside GI Center are modern, immaculate anad staffed by friendly, conmpentent and efficient people. I was taken exactly on time and what little aprehension one may have at any medical procedure disipatedalmost immediately due to the wonderful staff. I've had colonoscopy done with other doctors and this was by far the quickest and most comfortable procedure. The anastesiologist did an amazing job; felt like I blinked & all was over! When I got to the recovery room & checked the time I was amazed to see that the actual procedure took only 10 minutes. Dr.Goldberg does a lot of these & it shows. He's fast efficient &, if you've had one of these before, you'd appreciate that he does'nt leave you with an excessive amount of bloating.

He was knowledgable and professional, but seemed most interested in pushing to have a procedure done. Our verbal consultation was rushed and he seemed annoyed and bothered when I wanted to ask more questions about my issue or how to handleit. If I need more help I'm going to search someone else out.

Dr. Goldberg was very professional and knowledgeable. He didn't jump straight to taking a bunch of tests or prescribing medication, which I appreciated. He asked a lot of questions and took time to explain things. I read a lot of reviewsin which people said they felt rushed. Dr. Goldberg talked quickly and the consult wasn't long, but I didn't feel rushed, and I usually do with other doctors. The office manager was very patient and friendly, both over the phone and in person. I would recommend Dr. Goldberg. For those worried about being rushed, doctors are busy, just come prepared with a list of questions!

I think Dr. Goldberg is a good doctor who knows his stuff but he is arrogant and rude. I was not impressed with his bedside manner at all. He basically told me the symptoms I was describing were impossible and thatI was lying. It really upset me. I will not be going back to him.

Seems to be running a bit of a factory. Long wait and waiting room full of complaining patients waiting to be seen. Office staff use loud voices and lack diplomacy. Once with the doctor, in and out very quickly for theconsultation. Ran through the spiel without having reviewed patient info. Proud of his statistics and process. Easy to schedule procedure and not too far out.

I was very nervous about seeing a GI doctor for a possible hemmroid issue not knowing what the checkup would be like. Since it was my first visit, we met in his office (which made me feel really comfortable). I explainedto him my issue and history and he was immediately able to tell me I had been misdiagnosed in the past. He was confident to tell me the right combination of over the counter medicines would cure me in about 2 weeks after starting treatment and advised he didnt want me to go through a painful medical procedure just to confirm what he already knows. In all honesty, he could have put me through a medical procedure and charged up the insurance but he didn't and I appreciate that.
