I had surgery for stenosis and herniated disks six month ago, after four years of pain. I’m only sorry I waited so long. The pain in my legs that kept me from activity is gone. I was back at work in two weeks. All that is left is a little stiffness in the back, which continues to improve. I was nervous about the operation because outcomes vary, but my fears were groundless.

It's hard to remember how bad I felt prior to my surgery with Dr. Goldstein. I really appreciate his care, skill, compassion and warmth. My recovery following minimally invasive surgery was quick and complete.

So here I am on Christmas Eve with my family enjoying a blessed pain free time. I have to thank Dr. Goldstein for his skill, empathy and compassion. Six years ago I had minimally invasive spine surgery and I remain thankful every day.

Dr.Goldstein and his entire staff are excellent in every way. I was so afraid of having spinal surgery, but his professionalism and skill made it so well worth it. I did have spinal fusion, and after 5 weeks, I feel great! I had 3 consultations with 3 doctors, and I thank God I selected Dr. Goldstein. He's very compassionate and thorough, and so was his staff.

Two doctors recommended spinal fusion due to stenosis and disk herniations. I saw Dr. Goldstein and was glad I did. He told me I did not need a fusion, explained why and recommended a procedure to correct my problems. Back surgery in itself is freighting add a fusion and its now a life altering event. The day of surgery, I could just about walk into the hospital due to the pain running down both legs. Dr. Goldstein's pain protocal made the surgery comfortable. Returned to work part time in two weeks, full time in three. Pain free and loving every moment. I thanked dr. Goldstein for his professionalism and his kindness, and thanked god for giving him the talent to be a great surgeon.

I can't say enough to thank Dr. Goldstein. He gave me my life back after surgery. I sought multiple opinions. My doctor sent me to see Dr. Goldstein. Following minimally invasive surgery I feel wonderful. I found Dr. Goldstein to be caring and concerned. I am back doing what I love to do. Thank you!

Worst doctor, admin staff and clinic I have been to. I got no responses to any of the questions sent to my doctor, Dr. Goldstein. He saw me all of 10 mins after waiting for a long time and I was charged an arm & a leg. The office sat on my short term disability paperwork and did nothing, I almost got fired. I had to have my company resend it to my Primary Care doctor to have it completed. My doctor tried getting hold of Dr.Goldstein as well for over a week and no response. So there is no professionalism either. When you go to an Ortho surgeon, chances are you in a lot of pain as is. Don't add onto your pain by going to this clinic or its doctors who are extremely unresponsive, irresponsible and not empathetic. I have asked my doctor to refer me to another Ortho Surgeon.

Dr. Goldstein revised the surgery I had done by another spine surgeon. I now feel great. I wish I had seen Dr. Goldstein first but I live quite a distance from New York City. Dr. Goldstein identified the problem and corrected it. I found him to be very knowledgeable and caring. I am so happy I came to see him.
