What can I say about Dr. Goldstein. He is a superhero, a rockstar - the doctor that saved my life. This is my story. On 2/21/11 I woke up to the most excruciating pain I've ever experienced. I lay in bed next to my husband crying silently, wishing that it would stop - but it didn't. The pain in my left arm was indescribable, but my newfound inability to move or lift it was even more terrifying. My husband took me to his doctor that morning, where the anesthesiologist swiftly administered an epidural and sent me home with some heavy duty painkillers and a prescription for an MRI. My MRI confirmed that the disc between levels C4 and C5 was severely herniated, and that surgery (ACDF) was necessary. I met with 3 different doctors, praying that one of them would tell me that everything would be ok and that I could get through this without having the surgery. Each of them said the same thing "If you were my wife, sister or mother, I would tell you to do this tomorrow". I pleaded with my husband to give me 2
My primary doctor recommended me to Dr. Goldstein. He had operated on one of his family members and told me he was the "best". Well, I'm living proof. Dr. Goldstein gave me my life back. He is one of the most thoughtful, skilled, and compassionate doctors I have ever met. He did not push me into surgery but gave me enough information to allow me to make my own decision.
Dr. Goldstein is an amazing doctor! #nationaldoctorsday2015 #virtualflower1
