I used to like this doctor very much. But over time it´s as if he´s rushed and hurries through the appointment. You feel like you´re on a conveyor belt. It´s probably not his fault but I feel like the level of care I receive has fallen.

Care Provider was excellent in manner, communication and knowledge. Highly recommended.

January 2017
Although I have liked this doctor in the past, this was not the best experience. I do not feel the issues I came in for were addressed. As a matter of fact, I think they were dismissed. I felt like I was on an assembly line and rushed out the door before anything could be addressed.

October 2016
Dr. Goldberg is a busy doctor but he never rushes through our appointment. He listens carefully and treats my elderly father with respect. It means everything to my Dad that Dr. Goldberg talks directly to him but includes me as his caregiver in the conversation.

Dr. Goldberg is truly an asset to the Virginia Mason team of Physicians. My husband and I moved from Kirkland, WA to Anacortes, WA in 2008. We have received fair care in Anacortes, but decided it was worth the time and effort to drive 2 hours to work with Dr. Goldberg for our Health Care. Thank you for your excellent care!!!

June 2016
good

June 2016
Dr. Goldberg has a very friendly and caring manner, addressed my questions and concerns and provided a care plan for me in writing. I would (and have) highly recommend him.

June 2016
always very personable and sensitive to my needs very through in my evaluation of my problems

June 2016
I felt that the doctor did not listen to my concerns nor took what I was feeling, seriously. I felt that I was an inconvenience to the doctor´s schedule. Bedside manner could be improved and a smile wouldn´t hurt either. I have confidence that he is a good doctor and gives proper diagnosis, however, he is lacking in delivery and communication. This was my first time seeing him and I would hate for other patients to have the same experience.

June 2016
I have been with Dr Goldberg for many years and have been very satisfied

June 2016
Dr. Goldberg is very a very good doctor and I have recommended him. I always feel a bit rushed, not because he rushes me, but because we move through the issues/symptoms pretty efficiently... I am just a bit slow to process it all and find that I walk away with a few lingering concerns at times

June 2016
I cannot state more highly the expertise, concern and care of Dr. Goldberg. I have come to trust him completely and enjoy having him as my care physician.

June 2016
I´m a "professional patient" meaning I´ve got quite a few diseases/issues. I´ve seen many doctors over the years and have to honestly say that Dr. Goldberg is the best EVER. EVER. He is kind, caring and knows what he´s doing. I always feel safe knowing that he´s my doctor and has my best interests at heart. I tell everyone about him.

May 2016

Dr. Goldberg is wonderful doctor and we trust him completely. He has a good understanding of my fathers situation and treats him kindly and patiently with a careful approach to treatment. We both feel we have been very lucky to have found and be treated by Dr. Goldberg. We have seen many, many Drs. and he is truly exceptional in carefully listening and evaluating what is best for my Dad.
