Dr Goldstein has completely changed my life! I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone. I had been suffering with back and neck pain for around ten years, I had seen countless doctors and therapists and frankly was on the verge of giving up on living a natural pain-free life without the use of strong pain-killers. On our first consultation Dr Goldstein was very quick to identify the source of my pain. His consultations were clear, informative and ultimately incredibly successful. I had a discectomy and fusion a year ago and I can (extremely) happily say I am totally pain free now. The first two weeks after surgery are a little bit of a blur and I relied heavily on my family for support in getting around, but soon I was making rapid progress. I have had around 6 months of PT since the surgery to help the muscles recover and relax. It is really worth the disruption of having the surgery, I am back to my usual happy self again, totally pain-free!

I highly recommend Dr. Goldstein. I went for a second opinion. the first doctor recommended spinal fusion, but Dr, Goldstein preferred to do lumbar microdiscectomy- which is less invasive. I had it done, and now I'm fine. Very professional and knowledgeable staff, and they made me feel like "family'. If I could give Dr. Goldstein 30 stars--I would. I recommend him to anyone !

I found Dr. Goldstein to be very thorough and compassionate. He explained everything to me and my family. I had surgery almost 2 years ago and I feel great. I don't think anyone has as much experience doing minimally invasive artificial disc replacement disc replacement as Dr. Goldstein.

I had back pain for about 10 years, but it could be tolerated until my foot started going to sleep. I looked for a no nonsense and competent doctor. I found Dr. Goldstein and gave him my short term plans. He said that I should be able to achieve them without any problems. Within a few days of a spinal fusion I was off pain medication, and the day after the 4 week post-surgery visit I went driving on a 1300 mile trip without any problems. I would definitely highly recommend Dr. Goldstein.

Dr. Goldstein helped me return to ME. I went through all the steps (PT, Epdurals, etc) but was just getting worse. After surgery, I felt immediate results. I am just approaching 5 weeks post open and I feel great. My family is greatfull as well because was miserable company to be around. I'm an active 55 yr old and suddenly i felt 100. Dr. Goldstein cured that! I no longer have pain. I'm a little sore after PT but that goes away within an hour. I have my life back!

Dr Goldstein gave me my life. After a year of failed treatments (acupuncture,massage, PT, meds) to help ease my excruciating back pain caused by herniated discs, I was referred to Dr Goldstein for surgery. I had avoided the surgery option at all costs and both my wife and I were apprehensive.After our first visit to see the Dr. we were put at ease and we came away knowing that I was in excellent hands from a truly skilled professional.Surgery day was a breeze and the follow up excellent. A+ care

Dr. Goldstein was very thorough and kind. He is clearly one of the most knowledgeable spine surgeons in the field. After he performed minimally invasive spine surgery I went back to work and I feel great. I appreciate his compassion and skill.

I am a 70-year old and have just had my 2nd spinal surgery this year with Dr. Jeffrey A Goldstein. He is extremely skilled as a surgeon. My cervical (in late March, 2016) and my lumbar (early September 2016) are now freed of pain, and I can't thank him enough. I do not expect him to spend time hold my hand, I expect competence, courtesy and within that is where you will find his caring. I feel he has given me my life back for going into my more senior years.

I was suffering severely from back pain which curtailed my daily activities. I was fortunate to have been referred to Dr, Jeffrey Goldstein for lower back surgery which was performed a year ago. I am incredibly happy with the results. Now, at age 75, I am free of pain and leading a full life. I am so thankful of Dr. Goldstein expertise, kind and gentle work with his patients. I give him five stars and recommend him highly.
