From Patients and Their Families

“The rapport you have with your patients and their families is wonderful. More doctors could learn from you Dr. Goldstein.”

“In my 30 years as an RN, I have found that some physicians have a technical finesse and some have ‘people-skills’ – rarely both. You are blessed with both.”

“You are not only a highly skilled surgeon but with your warm and dynamic personality you make all your patients feel that they are a special friend of yours.”

“You never gave up on him, even in the midst of many who did. I believe that the two of us have many happy years left together, and we thank you for them.”

“Thank you for reinforcing the fact that there really are caring and loving people among us.”

“Many, many THANK YOU’S for giving me the 'gift of renewed life' with your successful four by-pass heart surgery. I feel I am only around 50 years old now instead of 84 years young.”

“You came into my husband’s room- business-like with straight talk! For me, his wife of 56 years, a Calm came – same for our five children….we say our thanks every day that you were, and are, there, for all your patients and their families. You are blessed with a very unique gift, and caring beyond belief.”

“I feel well for my 94 years. Before the transplant [aortic valve replacement] I could hardly move around without help, but now I have no problem except that I am not a fast mover.”

“I am now back on the golf course with my friends.”

“Your confidence gave us confidence.”

“The period leading up to the operation should have been the most trying time of my life, but your knowledge and demeanor made me confident that the surgery would be a complete success. I want to make sure you understand that I especially appreciated your availability and support during my stay. The hospital staff was complimenting your abilities and your interest in all your patients.”

From Medical Professionals

“Several of the nurses who assisted you with my care remarked at how good you were to work with. They asked me if I thought you would stay the same or change over time, and my response was that you will stay the same because you are a good person and a very caring person.”  - Lung surgery patient and RN

“We had an incident in DCU…I just wanted to let you know how much your calm, pleasant demeanor really helped us at a critical moment making all the difference in this patient’s outcome. Thank you so much, we very much appreciate you.”  - Nursing supervisor

”I am the sister of a recent patient of yours. I am a RN and in the past was a heart transplant coordinator at Froedtert Hospital so I appreciate all you do and have done for your patients. This is just to let you know how thankful our family is for saving his life. I read all your accomplishments before his surgery but I was more impressed with your video explaining how you see your patients and oversee the care they need. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU can't say it enough!

”Congratulations on your 'Top Doc' honor! You have been incredible with patients and a true inspiration.”  - Referring cardiologist
