My Regular Doctor
Self-verified patient of Dr. Umesh A Golani - Posted on August 22nd, 2018
i'm 52 years old now, and I've had type 2 diabetes for over 50 years. By now i've contracted all of the other problems that go along with it - neuropathy, kidney problems, etc., etc., etc., along with a few others not even associated with type 2 diabetes. Dr. Golani has recognized all of my health problems, and has either treated them successfullt himself, or sent me to a specialist who has treated them successfully. Not only is he knowledgeable and effective, he is friendly and courteous. His staff is equally so! In my long life I have had many physicians, having travelled all over the world. Yet I have never known a doctor who has been as able to treat my many afflictions anywhere nearly as well as Dr. Golani, and I consider myself quite fortunate to have done so now, in my dotage.

I have to tell you, anyone looking for the Dr's we had back in the day that cared for you, took time to hear what was wrong with you, and with compassion- diagnosed you. Dr Goloni follows up with me, and I am in better health now than I was in my 30's. His gals inthe office are just as compassionate. Returning all of my calls, no matter how important. God Bless Dr Goloni, Biji, Heather Jamie & all of the staff in st Margret office of Dr. Goloni. I have been a patient there for over 15 years. I promise any new patients you will not be dissipointed.
