This guy sucks. You want someone who is going to make you feel taken care of and this is not the kind of doctor who is going to do that.

After meeting several of the nest surgeons from around the country I chose Dr. Goldstein for my spine surgery. Surgery was a great success. Dr. Goldstein is a great surgeon and very skilled and caring. Well worth the trip.

Great experience. Wonderful surgeon and team. I appreciate Dr. Goldstein's compassion, skill and knowledge. He is a very nice doctor. Now I am back to normal with no pain after my recovery from surgery. He used the spine robot and I had a minimally invasive operation. Thanks!

I had debilitating pain. I tried a bunch of treatment including therapy and some cortisone shots. Dr. Goldstein did an artificial disc and now I feel great. I appreciate his time and expertise. He has a really nice team and he made me feel very comfortable.

I went to Dr. Goldstein as I suffer from chronic back pain and was hoping he could help me. I made a 10 AM appointment with him and was looking forward to getting help. After arriving early, I was told they had me down for 10:15, so I would need to wait a little longer- which was very frustrating as I took their first available appointment of the day. Finally, I was seen at 10:50 AM by an assistant. The assistant asked me 100 questions before I had my x-rays taken. After taking my x-rays, Dr. Goldstein finally appeared after waiting another 20 minutes. He spent just a few minutes with me and was clearly trying to cut off my appointment and move on as he would not answer any of my questions I came prepared with, and hastily gave me a goodbye hug to indicate he was leaving. Dr. Goldstein told me he would be back to wrap up, however after waiting 20 minutes in the room, no one ever came. I left the room to figure out where I should go next and came across the assistant who questioned me at the beginning of my appointment. He similarly was not interested in helping and instead told me I should settle up at the desk as the doctor was not going to be returning. When I went to wrap up with the receptionist, she was unbelievably rude and spoke over me to her friend in the next room as I was providing her with my personal information. My entire appointment was such a waste of time, I left VERY disappointed, and I would not recommend this practice or doctor to anybody. To make matters even worse, when I received my requested Doctor's notes and x-rays in the mail, my notes were incorrect and inadequate. There were tests on there I did not receive, and notes that were untrue.

I saw several surgeons at NYU, HSS and Columbia prior to choosing Dr. Goldstein for my spine surgery. I could not be happie. Dr. Goldstein was very thorough and his care is outstanding. I could not be happier with my results after surgery.

Thank you Dr. Goldstein for a great surgery. My pain is gone and I feel like new. Dr. Goldstein performed a minimally invasive surgery with a robot! He explained everything. I felt very confident having surgery with him and the hospital was great. He is very thorough, compassionate, and understanding. I can see why he is so highly sought after for surgery. I would recommend him to anyone looking for spine surgery.
