Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Goldvug is very pleasant and informative.
Dr. Goldvug is one of the best doctors that I have ever had. She really cares about me, and takes her time to really LISTEN to what I have to say. She has helped me with my health care, and takes pride in her work. No matter how many questions that I have asked her, she always listens, and then takes the time to answer them, and does not try to rush me out of the room. I would recommend her to all of my friends, and family. My husband is also a patient at her office.
The best doctor I ever had., very carefully, professional and she is wonderful person. Thank you Dr. Rita Goldvug!
The staff is rude and do not have a clue of what is going on.. but ither than that the doctor is great and straight forward which i really liked!
Dr goldvug is always very attentive into details with my health she's very caring and straight to the point I was seen as soon as i walked in at times it gets very busy do to high volume of patients the weight is worth it they will accomdiate you in every way there all caring at the office they work there hardest just to make you feel comfortable
Dr. Rita is a very good doctor. Her staffers are also very good. However, the wait time at her office is sometimes ridiculously very long. I don't see her often, just for a check-up. I would recommend go in at early AM, be the first patient to see her. If you don't mind waiting at the doctor's office, she's the one!
They work for the quantity of patients, not the quality of service. The doctor is overbooked, you have to wait in line for ages even if you show up at your time of an appointment. Everything is very hectic, the doctor is always overwhelmed, barely spends time with you, and you are in and out of her office after waiting for almost two hours.
I'm terrified of going to the doctors but had a really great visit with Dr Goldvug. Aside for waiting about an hour to be seen everything ran smoothly. Everyone from the receptionist to nurses were also very nice. Would recommend her
Dr. Goldvug is such a great Doctor,she listens to all your issues and addresses them Asap ,very professional ,very clean office a bit small but Im not here for the decor.I highly recommend Dr,Goldvug
Dr Goldvug has been my primary care physician for 5 years. She is an incredible doctor, very knowledgable and caring. Her office is usually very busy, but the staff does great work managing patient flow.
I am greatly impressed with Dr. Goldvug's welcoming manner and her efficiency; her level of ease, and her kind words. Her clinic and staff were very efficient and friendly, In the past, drawing blood has been one of my main challenges; her nurse collected a sample in one shot. I look forward to working with Dr. Goldvug and her staff for the rest of my life. Deana is great as well.
I definitely recommend Dr. Goldvug, she is excellent
Dr. Rita Goldvug is one of the best physicians that I have ever had. She really cares about me as a patient, and she takes the time to really listen to what my concerns are. She is extremely knowledgeable in all of her endeavors, and that is extremely rare, and I truly am great full for her. I would highly recommend her to any one of my friends or family. She is a true gem.
Fast service i guess satisfying
She said, "I treat my patients like my family," and I thoroughly believe that. I'll be making her my primary care physician for sure.
The staff is great, the doctor is awesome. I had to wait a bit longer than expected but it was also a last minute appointment. I'm just glad they were able to squeeze me in.
Great, she's a professional
Rita is professional, knowledgable and kind. I highly recommend her.
She truly listens to you. I feel so comfortable with the dr. So glad I found her!
It was a pleasure! Highly recommend Dr Gildvug.
Dr. Rita is really great and a breath of fresh air. She was very caring and I enjoyed being there for my appointment today.
Absolutely wonderful always takes time to listen. A great Dr. I feel very I can speak openly. Glad I found this amazing Dr.
The wait time was long but worth the wait. This was my first time seeing Dr. Goldvug and I was impressed. She took blood from me and didn't leave a mark so that's a plus for me. she is very thorough and I will be going back to her. Shirley O.
The doctor was so fast checking me and getting me out of the way
A total professional, courteous and respectful! The staff is outstanding! Both extremely efficient!
I have been looking for a better primary doctor since I turned 18. I am so at ease now that I have found Dr. Rita. She is great.
I've seen her twice for different reasons and both times she was very nice, considerate, and listened! She did not ask for unnecessary tests to be done and definitely considered the events going on in my personal life to make sure the treatments were as accommodating as possible. She took the time to research the different options with me on the computer in her office and printed information for me. She does not rush you out the door. Great doctor!
I was very upset to see that the doctor did not ask me how I felt or give me some pointers on how to progress each day with my rehab. She sent me on my way so fast, my head was spinning. I know that she's very busy, but I would like to get some personalized service while I am going out of my way to see her. I will not be seeing her again if I can possibly help it.
I was hoping for better service by the doctor. I was seen for only a couple of moments. I was not given a checkup or treatment options that I could go over and be better informed. Not going back to her, that's for sure.
Very efficient. Dr. Goldvug is highly knowledgable, very professional and pleasant. She listened to all my problems and addressed all my concerns. I highly recommend her. Larisa K.
Not going back again
I waited over an hour to see her and felt like she was just taking other patients before me. It was quite frustrating
Fast wait time. Thorough, efficient and fast appointment. Listened to my concerns. Great bedside manner. Laid out a detailed plan for my treatment.
I thought she was thorough, personable and knowledgeable. I'm very happy with my decision to have her as my GP.
Dr. Goldvug is an excellent diagnostician. Has never failed to recommend a specialist when needed. Her office is efficient and the staff is helpful and courteous
Thank you for help!
Friendly staff and attentive doctor. Great bedside manner from all. Felt comfortable to be there.
She is very good physician. She had provide me all appropriate care.
She was very professional and thorough. I'm very happy I selected her as my primary and have already recommended her to friends!
my visit was not what i was expecting. i went for a regular check out and she did not check me. Very disorganized. next time i am going to another doctor.
Very nice doctor and staff, has soon that I enter the office doctor Rita saw me in 10 min.
Very efficient Staff, nurses and quick professional service
Dr. Goldvug was very professional and listened to my concerns. It was my first appointment with her so I had a good first impression and the office setting was nice.
Dr. Goldvug is kind and gets to the bottom of whatever issue you are having quickly. I appreciate her answering my questions as well.
Doctor Rita was professional and warm. Her staff were also pleasant to work with.
I really liked Dr. Goldvug. She is kind and so is her staff. She listens and gives her opinion once you're done telling her what you've been feeling. I just recently had to find a new PCP and am very happy with my choice. Definitely would recommend her.
I went to her to do a general check up, I waited for a long time. She saw a patient that just walked in whit out singing the sheet and took her time to see me. Took blood test and till the day i haven't received a call from her to let me know the results and i have called a few time requesting the results and all they can tell me is that the doctor will call me i am still waiting she don't call. Bad experience ever and i am not satisfied with this doctor at all.
I was very impressed with the demeanor of the office staff and felt very well cared for. I appreciated the office's ability to handle doing tests in the office (I hate getting sent out to another facility!), and how friendly Dr. Goldvug was.
It was good.
Very nice doctor, have seen her a few times with no complaints. Wait time was a bit longer than I would like being I was the only patient waiting.
Great staff great doctor
She is great!!
I only go for my refills. Otherwise, this doctor always seems to be in a rush, constantly on her phone, and does not take the time to listen to you or your concern. The back of the office is always filled with old food containers with visible leftover food. The nurses, however, are very nice and personable.
Dr Goldvug is great. She listens to her patients well and shows you that she is caring. She is very busy which is great for her. The only issue with the office is that she is usually running from one room to the other and answering phone calls from other doctors, patients and pharmacies. Even though she's so busy, she manages to give your her undivided attention once she is able to sit down. I have been seeing her for over 5 years and will continue to do so.
Dr Goldvug is an excellent doctor. She's very concern about her patients very understandable. Your health from head to toe she leaves nothing unturned and that means so much to me. She keeps up with other check up other than with her such as gyn and eye and any other specialist u see.Most important you can talk to her and she listens.
I felt uncomfortable in her office. She was not giving me her full attention when I was asking to have my test results explained to me. I will not be returning to her in the future. Sometimes you need to search awhile to find the best doctor who understands you.
Ms.Goldvug is very professional.
I felt uncomfortable communicating with her. She did not explain things as well as I had hoped. Last time I was there, she was checking her phone for messages. I would think that a patient was more important than that. I don't like to be kept waiting in an exam room when she's talking to other patients when she knows I'm waiting for awhile. The patient should be kept informed as to what is going on at all times. I wish she was better.
the doctor and staff are good, but the wait time has me not returning. The double booked patients when I was there. 3 other people had the same time as my appointment.
I felt very comfortable with her and very welcoming
Dr Rita Goldvug is very warm and caring, when talking to her it feels like you're talking to your own family. She even encourages you to call or text her with any questions you may have. My family and I are in good hands with Dr Rita Goldvug--- one of the BEST, PRO-ACTIVE doctor around!!
Very professional, quality, and quck diagnosis!
Dr. Goldvug is just as phenomenal - she always takes time to listen to my concerns, and takes strides to really involve me in my care.
Quickly, correctly makes the diagnosis, quality service, the correct and harmonious work of the staff .Very satisfied with the doctor and staff.
Very good first doctor that took my blood without any shock or problems
Dr. Goldvug is very nice. The office is always very busy but it's understandable. She's worth the wait.
Rita is attentive and caring but on more than one occasion I have been told to come in at 8am for an appointment and I waited 45 minutes to see the dr. One day I came in to find that 3 other patients were also booked for an 8am appointment. I will most likely go to the city md on Austin Street the next time I need to see a dr.
Dr. Goldvug is a wonderful doctor. She cares very much for her patients, and you can always get an appointment when needed.
I would NEVER go back. Staff was inexperienced, the doctor took nearly 2 HOURS to see me, while the office was empty. She seemed pushy for me to leave, went in for an annual check up and left with frustration and NO CHECKUP. Ridiculous!
realy good and thacks doc rita feel better
Dr. Goldvug and her office and all of the staff were warm, friendly and accommodating. So happy to have finally found a GP of my own that I actually like in Forest Hills! I would highly recommend her to anyone else in need of a GP in the area!
She is a great doctor. She really takes her time to listen to your concerns and explains everything very clearly. I'm very happy to have met a primary care physician that I like.
The doctor was nice although not enough for the long wait time. Once she saw me, she was quick and to the point.
I arrived early for my appointment, so I was seen early. I checked in through ZocDoc online, so I didn't lose any time in the office. Dr. Goldvug is AMAZING. She was so easy to talk to. She answered all of my questions, and she seems really determined to help me resolve my health issues. She's kind, patient, funny, and she really seems to understand me. In my experience, most doctors will try to get you in, and send you right back out, making you feel like cattle. Dr. Goldvug handled me with care. She didn't rush me! She really took her time to get to know me and my needs. I wasn't expecting all this when I went in for my visit, so I was quite pleasantly surprised. Also, this office is ORGANIZED. It's an all-in-one of sorts -- no run-around. Instead of sending me to a lab to get my blood work done, they did it right there. Also, THEY are getting in touch with my specialists for records. They're not sending me to do it, which is so refreshing. It's a small office, but they've got their stuff together. Why can't all practices be like this one?! I very highly recommend Dr. Goldvug, and I look forward to working with her in the future.
Very professional, nice and helpful
Overall she is good. She could be more thorough. She is obviously too busy. The office should be kept clean, swept, mopped and more organized ! as it should be (as a doctor's office) and should smell clean!
Nice doctor ,I felt comfortable talking to her
Dr. Goldvug is very pleasant and listens to what you have to say before making a diagnosis or recommendation. Her office is clean and organized and her staff is very friendly!
I was hesitant to go to a new primary care physician even though I'd moved to a new state, as I'd been with my former doctor since I was in grade school. I found Dr. Goldvug on ZocDoc and paid her a visit. She has a wonderful personality, friendly staff, and I was in an out in less than an hour. I'm very happy with my new doctor!
Shes excellent. Before she assigns any meds especially if you are a NP she wants to get a feel of you thats a big plus...
Just went to my first appointment with Dr. Rita Goldvug. Very pleasant doctor and the visit overall was a good experience.
As a brand new patient, she had never seen me before, she took my issue as important enough to escalate and another doctor to ask him to take me in as a patient when my results at her office led to something that needed more testing. The whole staff was very considerate of insurance and taking care of my needs before worrying about things like paperwork - although everything was done, they were concerned with me and all very knowledgable and caring.
Took more than hour to see her and then less than 5 to go through my lab tests. She didn't remember why is that she gave me some medicine during my first consultation. Aren't they supposed to make notes?
good informative helpful
I feel like I finally found a doctor that is concerned about what is going.
Good doc! Will visit again and make her my PCP!
Doctor was very nice. Wait time was decent. Small office. Nice staff. Would definitely recommend for people in the area.
I had a visit for the first time with Dr. Goldvug on June 28, 2012. She is an amazing doctor made me feel very comfortable and she understood exactly what I was explaining to her. Her staff is very pleasant as well. I will definetly will be going back.
The doctor was very friendly, does not intimidate unlike my previous primary care doctor.
Dr. Goldvug is very pleasant - she is fast, but addresses all important issues.
Very kind and warm. Was aware of financial pressures of her clients and wanted to prevent me from spending unnecessary funds. Support staff very efficient.
The staff was nice. Even though I waited only 15-20 minutes, I didn't see the reason for it. There were no other patients and they didn't seem busy at all. Dr. Goldvug was quite pleasant.
She was very nice and understanding. She listened to everything i had to say.She made me feel comfortable.
Went in for hearing loss in one ear. She checked it out and saw it was wax. She let me know what she was going to do and through out I was very comfortable with her as she cleared my ear. Before I knew it I was hearing again.
she is great! very friendly and I felt welcomed and comfortable!
she is the best.. excellent
I have been through a lot lately and Dr. Goldvug took the time to understand my issues and diagnosed me accordingly. She was great !!!
short, and well done
Dr. Rita Goldvug was very informative on my evulation. She made me feel comfortable, and I would definitely recommend her. I would make Dr. Goldvug my Primary Dr. Mariama Dassa.
My usual experience at a doctor's office is, in and out with a one hour wait. Dr. Goldvug was the complete opposite, I was seen immediately and the doctor spent a good amount of time with me. I never felt rushed and was very comfortable with dr. Goldvug. I highly recommend her!
