Dr. Brian D Golden has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

the worst doctor ever. I went to get further blood tests for lyme disease and auto immune positive on the blood tests. He refused to do blood tests. Charged me the 500.00 for the office visit to tell me that I didn't have arthritis. I could have told him that. I didn't go in there to have my joints squeezed, I went in there for blood tests and he refused to give them to me. I eneded up having to go into the office and demanding blood tests. He never called me back to discuss results and I am still waiting on them to be mailed me. A man with a g-d complex, steer clear of him if you can and find a better doctor.
Doesn't listen. Says things that defy common sense and appropriate basic medical judgement. IE: you don't have lupus unless you have fluid around your heart or you are in renal failure. Bases his opinion on year old lab work (done when feeling well) that was being watched every 3 months by another doctor and doesn't see the need to have more labs done. But did some as a "favor" - result = 5 x normal value. Says your your hands are not swollen when visually they obviously are and x ray confirm--- however he would like to inject that swollen joint in your hand w a little cortisone.??? My opinion is the same as another poster - must make money from the injections. Just so odd / gross. This doctor is not your answer if you are looking for appropriate medical care - look for someone else as I am.
