Apr 19, 2024
In the beginning, him and I didn't get off on the right foot!! In fact, I didn't like him, for many reasons. Yet, as time went on, Dr. Golden actually ended being my fave Dr.!! He will listen to you and will address any concerns one may have. His staff is beyond caring(love Topaz). I only wish he was up here in coos Bay, then I'd know I'm getting the best possible care from a Dr.!! Thank you Dr. Golden for being a part of my health journey! P.s. I quit smoking 2 years ago!!!
