Dr. Goldstein and his staff provided a wonderful experience for both of my pregnancies. After reluctantly being referred from a retiring Dr., I was skeptical at first but he was kind, funny, warm and very reassuring. He was open and honest about all of my concerns and his bed side manner was excellent especially dealing with non-medical advice. There were moments when he was fatherly than medical care provider. His team of nurses was open and honest and they are knowledgeable in their field. They were supportive and I appreciate the nurses returned phone calls with my concerns or questions. The office staff is very accommodating and kind as well. I have no complaints and I have recommended his practice to others.

This man took my mom away when I was not even 5 years old because he and his staff are incompetent, sloppy and only think of the money they make and not the consequences of what can happen because they run an assembly line practice....may you never forget this, I will make sure of this.... .

Really, is he wonderful as you say??? You say you feel terrible for the innocent patient that died at his hands, but you cannot understand why people that loved her are bashing him on another site....shame on you for saying in so many words that for the hundreds he has helped that only one patient was never to leave his office after a botched operation. That one person was a loving mom, daughter, sister and friend to hundreds. You are a heartless stupid woman...KARMA.....

 |  Best OB/GYN ever  |  show details
by Gabrielle Taylor on Nov 23rd, 2013

I can't say enough great things about Dr, Goldstein(or Dr. G as I call him). He has been my doctor for more than half of my life. Not only does he have some of the best bedside manner I have ever received but when I was going through all of my pregnancies, he provided me with the best care possible. Every time I had a question or concern, he took the time to ease my fears and really explained everything that was going on in my body. There is no rushing as he takes his time with every patient. The office staff is wonderful and the nurses are probably the best you could ever hope for. Kathy and Cynthia are the veteran nurses here and I felt like I could ask them for advice and receive the most honest and accurate answers to all of my questions. I don't know what I would do without this team.

Poor excuse for a Dr. is too good description for Clifford Goldstein. Have to rate him to give him a review on this site. He deserves a O rating for what happened to a beautiful 40 year old mother, wife and NYPD sergeant at his hands.

Today was the 1st day of school for a little boy going to first grade...her had calls last night from many people who wished him a wonderful new year, his grandparent from far away etc.. this morning he went with his Dad and Nonna, but not his beloved Mom. She made the mistake of going to this Doctor for a simple procedure on Dec. 17 2012 and never came home...DO NOT GO TO HIM OR THE DAY OP CENTER HE WORKS OUT OF!!!!

We vow to write these reviews until we reach people that do not know what a careless poor excuse for a doctor he is. Apparently he is still able to practice, but a 6 year old little boy graduated from kindergarten without his Mom there because of him....

So after the last 4 or 5 reviews telling people who have enough sense to read this site, I hope you never go to this so called doc. who took away a loving mother, daughter wife because he is an incompetent man who severed her uterus, and did it in an underequipped day op center and changed the people who loved her lives forever.....

 |  Botched Surgery ends in DEATH -  |  show details
Apr 3rd, 2013

This Dr. botched a surgery for an Extraordinary person. Everyone in that room has blood on their hands. The outpatient center is in an ill equipped facility that should be shut down. Justice on Earth can never fulfill the massive loss felt by the people left behind. So, I wouldn't recommend this Dr., that facility or anyone associated with his Office because a 15 minute outpatient procedure took away a Lifetime of Memories for Family and Friends.

On 12/17/12, Candie Holochuck a healthy 40 year old came to Dr. Goldstein for what he called a "routine" fibroid removal in her ovaries and instead Dr. Goldstein severed a major artery and Candie Holochuck died right in the Day Ops Center. I would give Dr. Goldstein zero stars but unfortunately I can't submit this review without at least selecting one star! Dr. Goldstein should never practice again.

My last pregnancy was high risk. I had a complete placenta previa and two bad bleeds that placed me in the hospital on bedrest at 27 weeks. Dr. Goldstein and Dr. Trufelli were the most caring and attentive doctors. They were thoughtful and considerate about everything I was going through. At one point, Dr. Goldstein even went to bat for me at the hospital and argued with the high risk team about my treatment. This argument forced him to go to the Board and he still fought for my rights. I have been a patient of Dr. Trufelli's for 15 years and I absolutely adore him. I go out of my way to travel to their office because they are the best.

I think he realized it after my daughter lost her baby at 5 months, that's how important to high risk Moms to be on top of things. The staff never told or miss place a note put on his desk about my daughter going into the hospital,when he got back from vacation. He called one week later to me that's not knowing your patient.My daughter wanted to speak to him and then three weeks later.Someone from the office realize it to let him know. Sad!!

After hearing such good things with all the stars you give a Doctor a rating.Very disappointed .When I ask him did he check my daughter records from Cornell I guess he overlook it. My daughter lost her baby girl at five months. If he would have seen her instead of the head nurse I things would have been different.please sure if you see this Doctor your on Top of things and he would see you every visit Especially if your High Risk.

After hearing the reports I was so happy to see this Doctor ,What a disappointment.After my daughter lost her daughter at 5 months. He never bothered to follow up . His staff called almost a week later.He was on vacation you think when he got back he would call to see how she was doing.Her being High Risk.The staff also gave her wrong information when she said she had mucus they told her to go home and rest.Instead we went to The Hospital where she delivered her daughter.It has been almost two weeks we have heard from Doctor yet.

I have been a patient of Dr. Goldsteins for 11 years and he is an absolute DOLL!!!! he is always there to explain anything that I may have a question about and has the best bedside manner ever. The staff at his office are superb and there is never a problem getting an appt. whenever i need one. I had my daughter through his practice and will be having another one as well. I could never imagine anyone else as my doctor.
