Dr. Robert J Golden has the following 2 specialties
A urologist is a physician who specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the male reproductive system, as well as the urinary tracts of both males and females.
These doctors cover the kidneys, ureter, urinary bladder, adrenal glands, urethra, and the male reproductive organs which include the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis. Some common disorders that urologists treat are urinary tract infections (UTI), stress incontinence, benign prostatic hyperplasia, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and cystitis. These urological specialists also perform vasectomies and vasectomy reversals.
- General Practice
A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

Although the care of this doctor was more than adequate, the experience that we had with his billing clerk has been poor, to say the least. We had insurance but rather than make a phone call to tell us there was a problem, we were sent to collections for $81. We didn't know what hit us when we were served a lawsuit. We made contact immediately, gave the information the office needed and was assured by the billing clerk, Jana, that the lawsuit would go no further. Then, in June, we received a judgment in the mail from their collection company for the $81 plus over $300 in fees. We called again and were again assured that this matter would be corrected. We then called our insurance company, only to find out that this office had NEVER billed the insurance, even though Jana had told us she had. When we called the office, we were told again that the insurance company was billed and that Jana accepts no responsibility for prematurely sending this account to collections, or her failure to bill our insurance. We sent a certified letter to Dr. Golden as well as a fax and have received no response. At this point, we have no choice but to pay the judgment to avoid garnishment. The billing staff there is incompetent and the Dr, who's supposed to be in charge of his staff, is nonresponsive. This is a warning to anyone who uses this office, make sure that even when the bill says "insurance pending", that you receive an EOB from the insurance company as well, otherwise you might also be sent to collections after a short time and end up in the nightmare we are in.
This issue has been resolved. We are sorry for the inconvenience it caused.
Dr. Golden is a great doctor. He explained my condition to my wife and I in detail and with pictures. His bed side manner is excellent and when you call into the office with a question you always get your answer right away. His staff is also great. We especially liked his nurse, she is caring and has a great sense of humor! It was an all around good experience.
