I had a small cyst on my chest that I thought would be a fairly easy case to treat. I initially saw Dr Varughese. He recommended he perform a biopsy to remove the cyst. He assured there would be very little to no scaring on the standard procedure. I agreed. At my follow up he removed the stitches and saw it had developed into a scar but insisted it would heal nicely over the next few months.
Two months later no improvement. I decided to see Dr Goldberg for a second opinion. I waited over a hr after my apt time before he actually saw me and it was literally no more than 10 mins. He basically told me everyone's skin is different and have different reactions to treatment and that eventually it will heal someday. Showed no concern or sympathy for my situation and rushed out to his next apt.
I basically have to live with this scar now. I deeply regret stepping foot in his practice. After reading all the negative reviews I also blame myself for not doing my due diligence. STAY AWAY!
Office manager, Joelle, is very rude and unwilling to work with the patients. Very bad patient service! She also hangs up the phone & refuses to speak with you. She does NOT listen to you. Very UNPROFESSIONAL woman who lacks the skills to handle all sorts of people. Dr. Goldberg hired the WRONG person to be office manager. An office manger needs a lot of experience, patience, and savvy to handle various types of situations. Dr. Kristina Campton does not seem comfortable and skilled in what she is doing. I received a treatment from Dr. Campton but it's as if I did not receive it AT ALL! The treatment also took ONLY 3 minutes when it should have been at least 10 minutes! She also neglected to take the time to explain the treatment to me & the process involved, including the setting level and what would be most appropriate for my face. I even asked Dr. Campton for botox and she said ok, but never administered it. I told her my face itched before treatment but she didnt address that too.
I came to the office with the skin rash that looked like a bull eye and was seen by David Goldberg. I told him that I might have a Lyme disease since two weeks prior I was camping and asked to start treatment right away. However he laughed at my concern and ordered to do blood work and asked a PA to do a biopsy. The results should be ready in two weeks. At the end of the same week I went to my physician since I was not comfortable about waiting any longer and was prescribed antibiotics right away. She was surprised to find out that another doctor could not diagnose such a textbook case. Since office has not contacted me, I called them three weeks after the initial appointment only to find out that biopsy showed that I was bitten by an insect and that I do have a Lime disease. If I would trust this so called “doctor” and wait for almost another three weeks to hear the result of such obvious case I would suffer much devastating results of untreated lime disease. I strongly advise to avoid such incompetent doctor who obviously doesn’t care a bit about his patients.
I did a lot of research looking into his credentials. I’ve had friends in the past who have gone to other facilities or clinicians that ended up with some hyper-pigmented areas after their laser procedures. I wanted to be sure that I had the best physician in the field, and someone who knew all of the ins and outs. I felt that that was Dr. Goldberg, and that’s why I chose him. He was very thorough and answered all of my questions. He really made me feel comfortable. It was a positive experience overall.
I did a lot of research before choosing Dr. Goldberg. I saw that he had a lot of credentials and he has done publications which is why I chose him. He spent quite a bit of time with me during my initial consultation and he answered all of my questions. He was actually able to start me right that day with my first procedure which was the laser surgery to my left forearm birthmark that I have had my whole life. It is also known as a port-wine stain. He was very honest and told me that there is a possibility that I won’t see any results after the first time or a few times but I should. However, after the very first one I had people comment to me that it looked so much better. Hopefully, after my package of five it will be much better. I am excited to keep coming back because I want it to be completely gone. He has done a great job and I am very pleased so far. I am a registered nurse so I have dealt with a lot of other doctors’ bedside manner and Dr. Goldberg has been fantastic!
