Brilliant Cardiologist and a Caring Human Being

Dr Goldschmidt has been treating my husband and myself for more than 20 years. He is a quiet, calm, studious man, who cares about his patients and attempts to get to the bottom of any problem his patient is having. He is responsive when his patient needs him, and his staff is equally courteous and responsive. His reputation for being one of the finest Cardiologists in our area is well known and well deserved.

Good Dr.

I Like the fact that he is not an alarmist. Iv'e had ovarian cancer so so many of my specialists treat me like I'm fragile. He is relaxed and really nice. He is the first doctor that put me on hypertensive meds that worked. My Bp is always good in spite of the fact that I have a benign arythmia and a murmer. I like his staff and the wait time is normal.
