Patient Reviews

Dr Golden has repaired both of my shoulders, for the 5th & 6th and FINAL TIMES! I had 4 surgeries by 3 PREVIOUS surgeons that failed. He had to replace my left oulder JOINT & it’s been strong & pain free for over 2 years. He’s a wonderful surgeon & has an exceptional bedside manner; explaining clearly the exact problem and plan. His entire staff is ALWAYS prompt to assist, professional, reliable and welcoming! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him. He’s passionate about his profession & it shows! I am a retired nurse of 35 years. I have VERY HIGH STANDARDS. Dr Golden is OUTSTANDING!
