Ratings for Dr. Joel W. Goldsmith
I saw him the hospital due to Kidney Stones and he was rather abrupt and cold under the circumstances. I was about to go to the OR and her actually raised his voice at me.I thought it was just me b/c I was in excruciating pain; but its not. I'm looking for another Urologist.He needs to work on his bedside manners!!
Dr. Goldsmith may be an excellent doctor but I will never have a chance to find out. After two visits, I have switched to a different provider. On my first visit, he did not even greet my wife and I with a "Good Morning" nor introduced himself. On the follow-up visit, after a PSA test which he ordered, he did the same thing and asked if he had seen me before! His arrogance turned me off and his cold, detached and borderline rude manner is undesirable. Faced with a prostate biopsy and who knows what future treatment, I could not put my care in the hands of a man with whom I had no connection and who inspired an instant dislike. That's regrettable because during the painful digital exam, he was careful and almost KIND! He could learn a thing or two from his office staff, which were a pleasure to deal with!
Very helpful, but you must wait your turn. His personality is rather curt and demanding but he gets results. I would not like to work for him but I would never change doctors cause he's the best urologist I know of and very dedicated to his patients.
I have never met a more rude and arrogant doctor in my whole life. I had a whole list of questions and he made me feel like any questions were an imposition. Thank goodness for this web-site. Hopefully doctors like him will finally be exposed. Of course with the shortage of doctors in New Jersey, this may not make a huge dent. A rude and arrogant doctor is better than no doctor at all.
