    Dr. Goldman is an excellent pediatrician. She sees thee children of mine and she connects well with each of them really well. One of them has some complicated issues and she help us navigate them well. She always remembers previous things that were brought up and checks on them in subsequent visits. I feel we receive really excellent care from her. I have a lot of confidence in the care she provides.
