  • Dr. Goodstein comes off as a very knowledgeable physician. However he was late for three of the four appointments I had scheduled with him. And he was not just late, but embarrassingly late - as in sometimes 45 minutes, late. Additionally, there were two occasions where I called in to his office to get a follow-up from Dr. Goodstein and received no return call or request to set up an appointment. After calling several times and waiting for a reply, my husband finally called in on my behalf and requested to speak with an office manager. After speaking with her, I finally received a call from Dr. Goodstein the next day. Rather than apologize, he blamed his office staff for the mistake and told me he didn't know what to make of my case and ordered another test for me in the mean-time.
     
    Dr. Goodstein referred me for appropriate tests and prescribed appropriate treatments for routing out the cause of my symptoms , however, his treatment of me as a patient left a lot to be desired. He did not listen to my description of concerns and blew off symptoms and frequently treated me in a condescending manner.
    In addition, he questioned treatments by different physicians for other medical conditions I have, going as far as to order costly tests to challenge the validity of their diagnoses, unrelated to my lung related symptoms, and then recommending I discontinue the other medications because he deemed the the diagnoses to be "incorrect", even though they were not part of his scope of professional knowledge as a pulmonologist, and were not part of the lung condition for which I was referred. He frequently grumbled to me about his fellow physicians and literally growling his frustration with them.
    When one of the tests he ordered came back inconclusive, or not providing an answer for my symptoms, he would berate me for his fellow physicians and medical specialists and their ineptitude - speaking as if it was my fault or theirs that he did not have an answer for me. Very unprofessional.
    After four appointments with him and still no relief after trying his course of treatment, he expressed exasperation to me, again speaking to me in a condescending manner about my concerns over my symptoms persisting . I was informed that he had "no idea what could be going on and maybe I should see my primary care physician about a referring to an ENT and a speech therapist".
    In my personal experience with Dr. Goodstein, he does have an extensive medical background in tests to order for suspected diagnoses. However, he bedside manner, punctuality, and respect for his peers is severely lacking. He did not instill confidence in me that he is a competent in his field. I commend his office for remaining civil with him in front of patients because I do not know many people who appreciate being treated in the manner he treats others.
    I have since been referred back to a pulmonologist after treatment by an ENT. Needless to say, I will NOT be returning to Dr. Richard Goodstein.
