I have had kidney stone problems for decades and have had surgery in the past that had left a surgical scar on my right side almost from belly button to backbone. I have not had very good experiences with Urologists in the past, so that had made me quite anxious when the things started causing acute problems again. A friend recommended Dr. Golden since we had recently moved to Northwestern Arizona and no local physicians accepted my insurance. Dr. Golden takes the time to listen to his patients concerns, works with his patients and directly addresses all issues and leaves nothing out. I have found him to be very professional and very thorough. It took four trips to the hospital to rid me of those kidney stones, and I experienced none of the agony of the past. I highly recommend Dr. Golden to anyone with any urological problems. In this modern day and age where everyone is in so much of a rush, Dr. Golden is one who treats the patient, and not just the disease.

elevated PSA, prostate cancer. After reading about radiation and surgery, I opted for robotic prostatectomy. Dr. Golden, who had a great reputation as the expert in Las Vegas, was very upbeat about the chances of a good outcome. I was quite anxious about having surgery, but he made me comfortable with my decision. I was in the hospital just one night, had the catheter for one week. I had some urine leakage for 3 weeks. Since then (mid-2008), I haven't had any problems. My sexual function is as good as it was prior to the surgery! It took about 3 months befor i even tried to see if it would work, and I was pleasantly surprised that it did! I was using Cialis before surgery and continue to use it occasionally with satisfactory results. To be frank, it's not like I'm 20 again, but that's life. Overall, my experience has been quite satisfactory, since my PSA has been undetectable for 2 years, I don't leak urine, and I can have sex. What more could a guy ask for?

Dr. Brian Golden is a fabulous surgeon! My husband was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2009. He was only 41, and in seemingly excellent health (he’s an ex-pro-volleyball player) when he started urinating blood. Dr. Golden was the specialist called in to care for my husband. After studying all x-rays and scans, he explained everything to us in detail…all pros and cons…all worst and best case scenarios. He was straight forward. He needed to perform surgery and remove the mass. I did extensive research on Dr. Golden to weigh our options, and was confident in my findings. Dr. Golden is a certified specialist, and an expert using the Da Vinci machine, which leaves the smallest scar possible, meaning less damage and a faster recovery time. The surgery went flawlessly! The whole kidney was removed, and my husband’s recovery was rapid. I would highly recommend Dr. Golden to anyone!

This note is my thanks to Dr. Golden for saving most of my left kidney. I lost my right kidney to cancer in 2002. In 2009 my left kidney grew a tumor. I was scared I would be on dialysis machine for the rest of my life. I was referred to Dr. Brian Golden. My primary doctor said he was “EXCELLENT.” Dr. G showed me my CAT scan and the tumor. He described the da Vinci robot and showed me how much of my kidney could be saved. He had a very reassuring bedside manner, was confident (but not arrogant), and answered all my questions. He made me feel comfortable that I’d found the right surgeon for my terrifying situation. The surgery went great! MY KIDNEY WAS WORKING JUST AS WELL AFTER SURGERY. The incisions weren’t very painful and I was out of the hospital in just a day and a half. The pathology report said all the cancer was removed. IF YOU HAVE KIDNEY CANCER, GO SEE DR. GOLDEN. I’M EXTREMELY HAPPY AND THANKFUL THAT I DID. NO DIALYSIS FOR ME! Yeah!!

Dr. Golden treated my kidney stone, he explained exactly what he was going to do. One of the things I like about Dr. Golden is his great bedside manners, very friendly and easy to talk to. If anybody needs his services, I highly suggest Dr. Golden.

Dr. Brian Golden was very highly recommended by a prestigious internal medicine group in Las Vegas. Their recommendation noted that he was eminently qualified as an experienced, practicing urologist and surgeon, particularly in a procedure called the Da Vinci. Having undergone this procedure on 5 Aug op at the hands of Dr. Golden, I attest to the fact that he has more than earned such high esteem. From initial consult, through biopsy & diagnosis of prostate cancer to eventual surgical removal of my prostate, Dr. Golden was the consummate professional. He firmly & clearly communicated the facts to me, & was always considerate of my feelings. He thoroughly explained other options to me based on my type of cancer cell & provided other sources of information I could check including other oncologists. Dr. Golden placed the decision in my hands & waited for me to decide. I really appreciated that. I'm recovering well & chances for complete recovery are great. Bless you, Dr. Golden.

He is a very knowledgeable physician/surgeon. However, he is extremely unprofessional, never on time, rude, has an attitude, and has absolutely no bedside manner. If you can overlook his attitude and unprofessional manner, he is certainly an acceptable physician. As for me, I hope never to grace his office again.
