    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Lung Cancer

I had lung cancer in 2012 and had to have the lower lobe of my lung removed. Dr. Gouldman was there every step of the way and I am free of cancer today. I respect him as a surgeon and admire his caring and compassion.

If you have to wait, it will be worth it.

Dr Gouldman is one of my heros in medicine. I had an incredibly frightening condition last year that involved the removal of the top right lobe of my lung. The doctor performed the operation perfectly and I was sitting up joking in ICU shortly after it was over. I would recommend him to everyone. You may have to wait during the office visits, but that is only because he gives EVERYONE the amount of time THEY need. These are scary situations and there is no way to tell how long each visit will take. I'd much rather have a doctor spend time with me than one that rushes me in and out as quickly as possible!

Dr Gouldman is a fine surgeon

Dr Gouldman is a fine surgeon. At times, he may have to consult regarding patients in the hospital, etc. and so it's to be expected that at time, you may have to wait; but then he spends the time that it takes with you to make sure you understand exactly what the problem is and what he proposes. My surgery went well.
