Rude and sarcastic

I should have read the reviews before I went to Dr Goldsmith because I would not have gone! He is so rude, sarcastic and horrendous bedside manner. He didn't listen to me and insulted me by saying I talked too much! Really! Doctors seemed to forget that the patient is what's keeping them in business. Dr. Goldsmith might need to think about what he is doing, especially since he has so many negative reviews. The staff were nice, though.

Exceptionally Good

I had reservations about consulting this doctor after reading some of the negative reviews, but my experience at his office was exceptional. Better than most doctor visits, actually. The office staff were friendly and helpful, the nurse efficient and pleasant. The décor is bright and cheery--not the usual dull doctors' office setup. Dr. Goldsmith could not have been nicer or more professional. He seemed interested in and concerned about my symptoms, initially recommending several moderate to mild home remedies. His manner was low key and reassuring and no technology was involved during the consultation. He deals directly with his patients and not with his back to you while on a computer, as is so often the case these days. A follow up visit yielded the same amount of interest and resulted in the next phase of treatment. I have every faith in his expertise. Just a word about online ratings: most frequently, those who believe they've had a bad experience are the most likely to write a poor review. So, as far as Dr. Goldsmith and his office staff are concerned, take my advice, and go with the positive reviews!

Staff and Doctor don't go together

Dr. was rude. Ponded on the desk when I went to talk to him and said listen to me, you are a talker. He wasn't interested in listening to anything I had say. Examination went well. He seems knowledge but he has no bed side manners--arrogant, condescending --talks down to people like they are children. Doesn't want to take time to tell them specifics of case.

One Star

I've seen a lot of physicians and have been blessed with many great ones. This one was not one of those! He was very arrogant, sarcastic, rude and demeaning. Answered my questions with " It doesn't matter". Would not refer anyone to him - in fact have and will continue to spread the word of his lack of bedside manners.
