Never available for timely appointments
Self-verified patient of Dr. Patrick A Golden - Posted on March 2nd, 2018
It is near impossible to get an appointment with Dr Golden in a timely manner for any sickness or injury. His staff have a very poor record of follow through like submitting perscriptions to appropriate offices. Carmen is an uncaring, arrogant, dismissive, condensending excuse for a PA. I will not be returning there ever. When I have complained to other health professionals, they have all nodded their head and said they had heard it all before about Carmen and his staff. So obviously, I am not the only one. I read so many positive reviews about him, I am wondering why the huge difference in service?
A Wonderful, knowledgeable, caring doctor

I have been a patient of Dr. Golden for more than 20 years. He is a very knowledgeable, kind and caring individual. He and his staff respect their patients and make themselves available. Dr. Golden has gone out of his way on many occasions when I have had health problems in the past to refer me to specialists when necessary and have followed up on my progress. I would not hesitate to refer him to others.
A Dr who truly cares!

My former doctor is a great person but trying to figure out what was going on was going nowhere. I was getting sicker and sicker with no correct diagnosis. The former dr was reluctant to referring me to specialists, wanting to run the tests himself. Finally with the concerned prompting of my sister (who is a patient of Dr Golden's) I switched over to Dr Golden. Immediately he saw the seriousness of my health. He researched some things that I had been looking into (I was trying to look at everything because we really do need to be our own health advocate but also I was getting nowhere with former doctor) and he gave me the referrals I needed. He was also very willing to look outside of the box and not just prescribe medication to cover up the symptoms. A specialist that Dr Golden referred me to at UCLA found the problem and surgery was required. I'm also thankful for that wonderful doctor too but if it hadn't been for the care and concern of Dr Golden, I don't think I would be here today. Cannot say enough good things about Dr Golden. He truly is golden!

I have been a patient of Dr. Golden's office for six years. Both Dr. Golden and his outstanding NP Rafeal Camarena are extremely compassionate and caring professionals. I have a serious health condition that has been carefully and thoroughly treated and monitored over the years. They also pay keen attention to the emotional side affects to serious health issues. The entire office staff is outstanding and always willing to help with the kindest of treatment. Many of my family members are now patients of this office including my 85 and 83 year old parents, whom are extremely healthy and active!. Three generations of our family trust and appreciate this outstanding office.
