Dr. John A Goldman has the following 3 specialties
- Allergy & Immunology
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.

If you have nothing better to do than to wait half a day on this doctor, then go ahead and make your appointment. Waited close to 3 1/2 hours and then left as the receptionist wasn't anywhere to be found and the answering service answered the phone when I called from the front desk. Will never return. No patient should ever wait that long. Too many great and efficient doctors in the metro Atlanta area than to waste your time with this one.
Dr. Goldman is very knowledgeable, but you can expect expressions of his political opinions every few minutes. and a non-stop diatribe against the government and the president. There a political signs all over the office. He appears to be very thorough, but I found it exhausting to carry on a conversation with him. Some of the staff are very nice, and his phlebotomist is the best I have ever encountered. She can draw blood with no pain whatsoever. However, one of the office workers definitely needs to work on her people skills, that is all I will say about her. I do have some reservations about the amount of testing he does. I think I got an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment, but bring your patience and your assertiveness. You will need it.
I saw Dr. Goldman recently and have never been treated so rudely. I waited for TWO HOURS just to be seen (after a 6 week wait just to get in to the practice). A two hour wait would not have been so bad if the doctor was wonderful. He was anything but nice/caring/empathetic. He talked over me, cut me off, made snide remarks about my paperwork and then finally as I was leaving, I overheard him complaining to his staff...ABOUT ME! I could hear him! I guess besides me being dumb, he thought I was deaf too! He did not care though. His staff told me he is always running this late and this is just how it is and the same with his attitude. Maybe he is great if you care to put up with the exorbitant wait and his crusty demeanor. He is not for me and I have not been back! There are many CARING doctors in Atlanta who will treat you as if you are a person and not some bumbling idiot!
