Incompetent shyster

If you are looking to drop a lot of money on a great horse and pony show you have found your man. He has no ability to make an accurate medical diagnosis or render safe, sound and appropriate treatment. He will jump from one diagnosis to the next, run costly invasive tests and propose costly and invasive treatments procedures without sound evidence or practice. Run from this man. He will harm you, not heal you.

Warm, compassionate, educated, I recommend!

After seeing many doctors for vulvar pain, one of them recommended Dr. Irwin Goldstein of San Diego Sexual Medicine. After a short physical exam, he diagnosed my condition quickly. He is a well-educated, compassionate Doctor, as is his staff. I highly recommend him to any who have been to countless doctors and with no set diagnosis made. He is one of the best in this field.

The Erotic Genius

One day at work while reviewing a medical malpractice case, the treating physician diagnosed this elderly woman with vaginal atrophy (among other things). Well, I could not get that dx off my mind. I am very familiar with anatomy and chemistry. Obviously I know that our bodies change. But after I thoroughly researched what vaginal atrophy is, I had what I would describe as no less than a crazy severe panic attack. I did not want this to ever happen to my body. I have always been extremely sexual; kind of a high oxytocin woman. So I panicked. Fearing the loss of my body parts/vulva and sex life (I can be a bit dramatic) I called Dr. Goldstein. At my appointment, I did not tell him of my vaginal atrophy nightmares, it was too difficult for me to discuss. However I did have another reason for my visit which again was difficult for me to discuss; a decline in my libido. I was extremely nervous at my first appointment (labs already done). I did not know what to expect. Dr. Goldstein brought me to his office, we talked for awhile, he asked all the appropriate questions, we reviewed my labs, we discussed treatment plans, and meds. Then I had an examination which tested among other things my sensitivity. Throughout the exam, he talked me through everything and without my having to ask, he talked about the very thing that I wanted him to talk about but was too afraid to ask. Specifically what happens to our anatomy as we get older if we do not incorporate bio-identical hormones in our life. Mind you I am in my 40's and not menopausal. After the exam we came up with a customized plan. Being very busy, the follow up was I believe by telephone with a visit shortly thereafter. That was about 10 years ago and I still value him as my doctor. Over the last 10 years, he continues to care for me as if I was his only patient. He has always been available by email or phone and quickly responds. Most importantly, he listens, he is intuitive, and knows how to communicate with me. I just had a visit with him and again, he is generous with his time, gives me samples and tailors my treatment that meets my lifestyle. My sex life has greatly improved since I have been his patient. As a medical malpractice attorney, defending physicians both here in Ca and NYC, I can tell you that one of the biggest complaints patients have about doctors is that they feel like a number instead of a person, feel ignored, get upset because phone calls are not returned and feel like their doctors do not listen to them. Dr. Goldstein's philosophy surpasses the standard. He educates his staff and they all work together. Dr. Goldstein has this elan way of practicing, which I sincerely appreciate and relate to. He is the best. My life has changed for the better.
