I was referred to Dr. Mark Golod's office by my medical insurance for a pain in my right shoulder. So I set up an appointment the following week. At the appointment I gave Mark Golod my past history and told him the issues I was having with my shoulder. After the consultation mark Golod wanted me to drive to Palo Alto for a special MRI.

I made the appointment for my MRI and took time off of work the following week to get the MRI down. This procedure involved a special dye being injected into my shoulder joint (not fun). After a two hour wait and MRI I was finished.

A week after the MRI I went back to Mark Golod's office to discuss the MRI and what to do next. Golod said that my MRI really didn't turn up anything in particular and assumed that I had had some rotator cuff issues since that was the issue I had in my right shoulder years earlier.

Mark Golod's plan of action was to perform arthroscopic surgery on my right shoulder and look at my glenum labrum and rotator cuff.

Two weeks later I set aside a Thursday and Friday to recover and into surgery I went.

At the post-op visit Mark Golod's PAC explained the post op physical therapy process and what I could and could not do. I followed his recommendations to a ""T"" even though they both said that my shoulder looked in remarkably good condition and they couldn't understand why I was having the issues I was having.

After four weeks of physical therapy and ""taking it easy"". I went for my second follow-up and my pain had not lessened. They told me to continue with physical therapy and do minimal activities that involved my shoulder.

After another three weeks I went back with no improvement in my condition. Mark Golod then said that i may want to seek a referral to another doctor. I knew there was a serious problem at this point.

I did my own research and found a Dr. Kao who at the time was across the street from Golod. On my initial visit Dr. Kao suspected a broken Acromion Process. During the first surgery to see what Golod had or had not done. Dr. Kao discovered that my Acromion process was in fact fractured completely through and was pinching my Rotator Cuff. A second surgery was scheduled to do and open surgery to affix the bone using two screws and wire.

Because of Dr. Golod's incompetence I had to endure more months of pain, two un-needed surgeries, lost time at work and I was out of pocket my own money for medical related costs not covered by my insurance.

one great doctor

Dr. Golod has operated on me on two occasions. I was treated professionally, seen rapidly and had good results.

I have worked with many patients who have gone to this doctor and the feedback I received from them has been excellent. He is considered an excellent orthopedic surgeon, by other doctors in this area. He has treated a number of other physicians and that says a lot. He is a referral source for a number of local doctors.
Don't expect to be wowed when you meet him. He is rather quiet, understated and kind. He comes across as somewhat ""shy"", but very professional. the practice of medicine is ""his life"". He spends a great deal of time with his patients and cares about their outcome.
I'd go back to see him any time I had an orthopedic problem.
