23/06/13 4 2 1 1 Rude chauvinist. Tries to put fear into the minds of women if they show a strong desire to deliver vaginally or without meds. VERY high C-section rate; not a fan of natural birth. SAYS he will do a water birth, but will not. Everyone I know who has used him has ended up with a c-section. I was very informed, hired a doula, and always requested the midwives over him (MWs don't seem to like him either) so I was lucky to deliver vaginally. Trying again soon for another baby and will not go anywhere near this practice! Don't even bother! Yes, they have a fancy office, but unless you want unnecessary surgery, steer clear! AND he started talking about c-sections with me when I was only 20 weeks pregnant bc baby was "too big!" Umm, delivered my 9.0 baby naturally with only 2 stitches thank you very much!

11/03/12 5 5 5 5 I have seen 3 different OB's for my kids and he was by far the nicest one. He never seemed rushed and never left the room before I assured him I had no questions. He is soft spoken and just very friendly. I went into labor at 11pm on a Saturday and he was at the hospital shortly after we got there. I ended up rupturing my uterus while I was pushing and he got my daughter out in just a few minutes, keeping us both perfectly healthy. We both owe alot to this wonderful doctor. I highly recommend him!

29/04/11 2 5 1 4 Not helpful at all. I went in to ask about my pregnancy-related depression and the first thing he asked me was "Don't you have a doctor for that?". I thought he was a doctor?? After that day, he referred me to the other doctors in his practice. I guess he didn't want to deal with something he supposedly has experience with.

31/08/10 3 3 2 2 I recently used this office for my first pregnancy. The staff was never on the same page about my care. I went into pre-term labor and he couldn't even take the time to stop by the hospital to check me out. The hospital staff ran many tests and administered drugs to stop the contractions. They stated that he would fully go over restrictions/tests/events during my next appointment(which was in the next couple of days)but when I went to the office NO ONE knew that I had been in the hospital. When they went to look up the info in my file...it wasn't listed!! Another staff member told me "well obviously you're alright, otherwise they wouldn't have let you leave the hospital." This is not the explaination or type of care that I expected.  Respond

05/05/10 5 4 5 5 Dr. Goldman delivered both my babies via c-section, scar is minimal. He's a very smart guy, definitely recommend. Sometimes he seems in a hurry, but in his business, it's unavoidable.

17/11/08 4 4 1 1 This guy has no business practicing. ****ed. Spent so much time looking at my "goodies" that he misdiagnosed me as pregnant with "no baby". Went to hospital the next week and an ultrasound not only confirmed I was pregnant but had a healthy 12 week fetus jumping around inside of me. Man is a quack!! Beware, do not go to him.

11/09/08 4 4 4 5 Wow, I am suprised by the negative comment. Sorry to hear about your experience though. My experience with him has been great. Dr. Goldman recently delivered my baby by c-section and I could not be happier. I have even referred a few friends to him and they love him too.
