February 01, 2014

After the 3 hours of waiting I saw my doctor for maybe 5 minutes and part of that time was spent with him finishing the last patients file. It was late and they were just trying to get everyone finished with and out the door.

January 17, 2014

I find the entire staff to be very professional and dedicated to helping their patients

January 11, 2014

Left most of the examination to others.

December 14, 2013

have told others and they were very happy with their vist

December 13, 2013

Dr. Goldsmith saw a rising condition in my left eye and said we should take care of it before it got worse as he didn't want to risk doing the operation after his vacation. I am very pleased with his decision to address my problem right away.

November 18, 2013

I have concern of coming from out of state and not getting the exam, tests or answers I needed.

November 10, 2013

very good

October 26, 2013

September 11, 2013

extremely pleased with the experience, will return for check-up next year

September 08, 2013

Have found Doctor very forthright and honest.

August 19, 2013

My questions and concerns were answered fully with care.

August 07, 2013

Doctors spent more time huddled around the computer trying to understand their program than they spent with me. Not happy with my past three visits at all.

July 23, 2013

Over all with disregard for the time delays the experience was acceptable..time was a little too long

July 12, 2013

Dr Goldsmith is a caring, and a wonderful care provider. He had read a paper regarding my specific condition,and sounded very enthusiastic to share the results of the study with me.

July 12, 2013

The care provider always provides excellent care.

May 27, 2013

one of the best doctors I have ever had! Dr. goldsmith rocks! thanks for saving my vision

May 20, 2013

Excellent in every way.

May 17, 2013

The care provider, Dr. Goldsmith, was excellent in every respect: highly qualified (a leader in his field of glaucoma research), his concern for me and my condition, a good communicator, a good manager of his time, and the coordination of my follow-up visits. He will be comparing the results of my new tests with the old ones taken at my former clinic as soon as my medical records become available on your forthcoming online service. I look forward to seeing Dr. Goldsmith, again.

May 16, 2013

my dr. goldsmith was so wonderful with me and now cause of him its wonderful how i can see things, i want to thank him and everyone who works with him they are all so good to you!

March 29, 2013

I have complete confidence in the skill and knowledge of Dr Goldsmith. He does an exdellant job of keeping me informed of all procedures. It is obvious that he is very commited to his work by how much he cares about taking care of my eyesight

March 27, 2013

I have been a patient of another university hospital for several years, but NEVER have had my condition explained so thoroughly. The Doctor was interested and interesting, and I felt properly informed when I left.

March 15, 2013

I feel Dr. Goldsmith is a wonderful doctor, but he is a very busy one. I referred my brother as well as my twin sister to him for eye surgery and they too feel he did a great job on their cataract surgery.

March 12, 2013


March 01, 2013

Excellent in every area.

February 18, 2013

Explanations were very brief. Due to previous providers' lack of explanations, it would have been nice to have an overall summary of the condition(s) the patient is being treated for. (i.e. No one had ever mentioned to the patient that she had "Fuch's" before).

December 31, 2012

Dr. Goldsmith has been my doc for many years. The person I saw in Triage was a sad substitute

December 30, 2012

Always receive excellent care and clear explanations of diagnosis, medications, treatment, etc.

December 15, 2012

I am always terribly impressed by the service I get at the Moran. Dr. Goldsmith and his support staff are top-notch. They're engage, they're interested, they're very helpful. I look forward to my visits there, and I would recommend without hesitation both Dr. Goldsmith in the Moran to friends and family.

December 03, 2012

Dr Goldsmith is extremely thorough and concerned about my condition. He goes the extra mile in my behalf.

November 19, 2012

Dr. Goldsmith is one of the best care providers I have ever met

November 19, 2012

I received excellent and courteous service

November 05, 2012

Very good experience all round

October 23, 2012

I felt that I was being treated as an intelligent person. As much time was given to me as I needed without my feeling being rushed through the appointment. I am very pleased about the care given me.

August 06, 2012

Dr Goldsmith is a caring person who takes time to explainwhat ever he sees.

July 30, 2012

Dr Goldsmiths office hours at Moran are very I wouldn't recommend him to a friend

June 20, 2012

My appointment was very through and any concerns were carefully explained

June 18, 2012

I have recommended you with the caveat that appointments take a rediculously long time. I like being part of the teaching hospital experience, but doctor spoke 95% to intern.

June 04, 2012

Everyonel I came in contact with during this visit proved to be attentive and caring for me

May 15, 2012

Skills and knowledge of caregive was exceptional.

Dr. Goldsmith is always polite, helpful and I feel confident having him as my provider

April 11, 2012

I have already recommended this care provider to others.

April 10, 2012

Dr. Goldsmith seems to care about me as a person. He and Dr. Vitale work together and communicate about my eye problems even though they have different specialities. I like knowing that I have two doctors who care enough to do this.

April 06, 2012

The doctor and assistant (with whom I spent the most time) were both very thorough. The assistant was courteous but not friendly. I would, and have, recommended this doctor to friends. All my questions and concerns were listened to and answered.

April 03, 2012

Need more continuity of care! Lots of waiting and not knowing when they would do the next test..made w me wonder if they forgot me

March 28, 2012

Personaly I would have liked to see the Doctor before my eyes were dialated so I would know who was talking to me. All he was, was a voice. He mentioned taking a question I had to some other people. Not sure if I will get an answer to the question or if it was even going to be asked.

March 21, 2012

very good

March 05, 2012

It was a routine exam so very limiting toward the above questions. Very positive though.

February 27, 2012

Ask stated before I was treated like an Idiot and my concern dismissed as not worth his time, that I shouldn't even have wasted his time. When I felt he had wasted my time.

February 15, 2012

Visit with the Dr. was short did not explain test only said they were good. Total visit should have only taken 30 to 45 minutes

February 15, 2012

Both Dr. Goldsmith was wonderful.

February 14, 2012

I always recommend the Moran Eye Center.

February 08, 2012

great experience

February 01, 2012

January 31, 2012

Dr. Goldsmith was stellar

January 31, 2012


January 24, 2012

My physician was perfect. He went beyond the call from my very first appointment. He spent a lot of time with me and explained everything in detail in a way I could understand.

January 11, 2012

Always very professional and caring

January 10, 2012

I like the Dr a lot and all the helpers did a good job too. The intern explained everything to me very nicely, so the Dr. was only there a minute or two. It's ok though as I didn't have any problems.

January 10, 2012

Great Doctor and staff.

January 10, 2012

Dr. Goldsmith didn't say I needed to curtail activities after laser procedure, but I wondered about that when I got home. Every time I bent over, I felt pressure in my eye, so I cancelled my plans to go work out that evening. I expect there were no restrictions since he did not mention any.

January 09, 2012

Dr Goldsmith always shows me the attention I need, even after nearly 9 years.

January 03, 2012

not enough details on other side effects of new medication
