22/05/12 5 5 5 5 Looked in to the mirror today and I just realized how amazing my hair looks! Dr. Goldman works wonders. I have been experiencing hair thinning for some time now and after just a few treatments with Dr. Goldman, I experienced re-growth in my hair and now my hair looks amazing. One thing I do have to comment on though, is what other people are posting about him. Dr. Goldman may be abrupt but who cares?! I go see him because he is the hairless EXPERT! With the amazing work he has done, I wouldn’t mind if he was yelling at me. I'm willing to sacrifice my sensitivies for someone who knows what they're doing!!!! My overall experience was wonderful. Highly recommend Dr. Goldman to anyone experiencing hair loss.  Respond

21/05/12 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Goldman for about two years for hair loss. I did quite a bit of reasearch to find a good dermatologist for hair loss. He is very knowledgeable and provided a few different treatment options. I learned quite a bit about hair loss and when I could expect to see full results. Two years later now and my hair looks so much fuller and thicker, thanks to this expert! If you want to ensure the best results possible, you must see Dr. Goldman!  Respond

18/05/12 5 5 5 5 It took me a while to finally shop around doctors for my hair loss problem. I was embarrassed about my hair and have been for a very long time. Once I found Dr. Goldman I knew we were a good fit, he understood me and alleviated me of all my concerns. In a couple treatments I could see and feel my hair returning, by the time we were finished I was amazed. I always knew I would feel more confident but I never knew I would feel this good. I'm so thankful for my friend who referred me, and to myself for taking that step, and to Dr. Goldman for welcoming me in and making me look at feel like I once did when I was at my best.  Respond

27/02/12 5 5 5 5 Dr Goldman is a wonderful doctor. He is so knowledgable about hair loss and treatments. My husband had several consultations with hair loss doctors and found Dr Goldman to be far superior to the rest. He has already had a few treatments and is seeing great results. We are both very happy with Dr Goldman and can't wait to see the final results of his hair transplants. I would highly recommend scheduling a hair loss consult with Dr Goldman if you are in need of some hair help!  Respond

31/01/12 4 1 1 2 Goldman was over an hour late and told me I was being treated like a king. He overcharged me by $300 and refuses to take a look at it. Really a greedy person and doesn't care about his patients. Awful.

07/07/10 1 1 1 1 This doctor constantly make mistakes. He must be on medications!! He injected botox in the wrong place instead of fillers. He over bills for cosmetic products. re uses left over filler and re bills at full price. Dr does not wash his hands. Very messy and unprofessional bed side manner.

25/06/10 2 3 1 1 Dr. Goldman does not do any tests to determine the cause of your hairloss. He does collect large fees for service and wants to sell you everything from his overpriced version of Rograine to his own shampoo, conditioner and medications. He sold me the name brand medication for more than twice what the generic cost. He refused to provide any information to use for insurance reimbursement. He was rude, arrogant, and bordering on mean. Avoid him and his miraculous claims. I went to another MD who did tests and found the cause of my hair loss and put me on the correct medication. Who knows what the other medication unnecessarily prescribed by Goldman did to me.  See Responses

19/02/08 5 4 3 5 I am writing this review because I disagree with some of the comments written about Dr. Goldman. Yes, I agree that he can be abrupt and in a hurry. He doesn't have great bedside manner, but he has done wonders for my hair loss. I have sent several friends to him, and they all comment on his abruptness, but all of them have seen vast improvements in their hair growth. He specializes in a special kind of hair shot, that is injected into the scalp. I recommend him if you have thinning hair.  Respond

31/01/08 1 2 3 3 *Dr. Goldman does not accept insurance for appts. regarding hair loss and his products are expensive.* He is quite brisk; expect to see him less than 5 mins. per appt. after the initial consultation. I keep going b/c I was so frustrated by other MDs telling me hair loss (over a 2 YEAR period) was solely due to stress. He was the first Dr. to validate what I was seeing. Make an appt. only if you can deal with a cold bedside manner.

13/05/07 4 1 1 He does not listen at all to your problems. He pretty much believes he knows exactly what's wrong with you without taking the time to listen to your symptoms. He is very high on himself, saying to me that his treatment for hairloss is why there is a 3 month waiting list just to get into his office, which is ridiculous, because I got an appointment within two weeks, and all he gives is his own version of rogaine. He didn't try to figure out why I have hair loss or why I have dark circles under my eyes. He pretty much wanted to sell me his products for both problems, and when he realized that I wouldn't be able to afford all that stuff, he pretty much wrote me off. He was short and quick and doesn't appear to be the authority on any dermatological problems. Find someone else- anyone else. A complete waste of my money- didn't even get any advice or information on my issues for the paid appt.
