6-mth check-up= Complex -- disappointment -- not relating well--not satisfying--depressing--feeling helpless.. Did not adequately discuss medications, blood pressure, weight, overall health-- combined with inefficient echocardiogram results and follow-through. See in 1 year. Doctor did call after I sent [...]'s error, but we ended up arguing about my expectations. [...]

We found Dr. Goldberg very abrupt and hurried. Plus, we waited about twenty or more minutes for him to come in for the exam after the medical assistant left. We needed a cardiologist in the Valley instead of traveling to Dr. [...] at Sacred Heart, and that's why we saw Dr. Goldberg. We were very dissatisfied.

After arriving at the office, I was immediately greeted by the receptionist. I was given a clipboard with a form on it and asked to complete the form. As I completed the form, my name was called and I was taken to an exam room. The medical assistant performed an EKG on me. Shortly afterwards, Dr. Goldberg arrived and completed his examination. We then discussed my condition, my concerns, and then his recommendations. He then scheduled me for a procedure the following week, and gave me two new prerscriptions.

05/10/2017
Because of a difficult patient earlier in the day Doctor Goldberg was behind schedule so I had to wait longer than I expected to see him. However, he did not act rushed, he patiently answered all my questions, and spent quite a bit of time with me. I was very satisfied with the attention I got.

Our family has been with Spokane Casdiology for over 30 years. We started with them shortly after my husband had a heart attack. After another Doctor from another group assured me that [...] wouldn't make it over five years, coupled with the dismissive attitude I moved his care. He has survived over 30 years in their care having passed away this last (2017). During that course of time I also developed some blood pressure issues and also became a patient . They were very attentive to me especially during the end of our battle with alszimers, I was taking care of him until the the last two months of his life. When he did pass Dr Goldberg made an enquirer as to my health. His staff sent a card of condolence, and when my visit came I was looking for his concent to have Back surgery. He ran the tests necessary to asssure that my heart was healthy to withstand the surgery.

02/27/2017

Dr. Goldberg was clear, efficient, obviously a very talented heart specialist. he also exhibited a sense of humor which was appreciated by me.
100

12/21/2016
Dr. Goldberg and his RN [...] were great and very courteous. His front desk staff could use some people skills. I felt as if I was burdening them and did not feel welcomed. Also his Medical assistant [...] could use some people skills as well. During my initial assessment she argued with me about my pharmacy. I'm competent enough to know where my pharmacy is. very insulting
