Doctor Brian Golden is the best. I was living in Las Vegas at the time, I had gone through 5 years of misery with Kidney Stones. I had 1 stone that kept coming back and would be bigger every time. I lost jobs due to this problem having to be hospitalized. I remember the 1st day I visited Dr. Golden in his office, he was so professional and caring and explained the procedure that was going to take place. After I had my surgery I felt like a whole new person I had never felt so good. I would highly recommend Dr. Golden to anyone, he is truly the Golden Doctor.
BEST LISTENER EVER – My name is Leora I am 57 years old and have been going to the doctor for 6 months for the same problem. I have another appointment so I go and meet Brian Golden. What a great guy he really listened to me and I think he got it right. He gave me a few samples of a pill. I took one and it seams that it has already helped. I cant say enough about him. He is my hero!
Best Doctor EVER! – My name is Debbie, and I am a 56 year old grandmother. When I had severe abdominal pains recently and ended up in the Hospital, Brian Golden was my doctor. I was amazed to discover that he honestly cares about each of his patients, and goes above and beyond the basic care I’ve come to expect from doctors. It was obvious that he listened and worked with me in choosing a treatment plan. He explained my options, told me what he would recommend in my case and answered my questions in easy to understand terms. He was very calm and reassuring, and I trusted him immediately.
After discussing the pros and cons of each procedure, we decided to take the least invasive plan. Dr. Golden threaded a laser up to my kidney and chipped away at the huge kidney stone. (I went in for outpatient surgery.) EVERYONE involved came in to talk to me. It was like a meet and greet. When it was time for my surgery, I knew everyone in the room and felt the respect and compassion. While I was waking up, I could hear the nurse talking to me, gently encouraging me. Over the last few weeks, I have had a stent from kidney to my bladder. It has only caused minor discomfort, but is necessary until the lithotripsy procedure to hopefully shatter the rest of the stone. I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Golden and highly recommend him to ANYONE needing a urologist.
Please do your best to get through the terrible office staff. Dr. Golden’s bedside manner and knowledge are amazing and well worth it. I encourage everyone to tell the office manager about any experiences with the horrible front office staff. The doctors in this office should not have to apologize for the staff’s sloppy indifference. All of those doctors deserve a lot more respect and assistants of much higher quality.
Debbie, Thanks for your positive comments. I'm very glad I was able to help you through some tough issues. As for my office problems, they were largely responsible for my moving to my new practice in Sacramento. NEW OFFICE WITH WELL-TRAINED AND CARING STAFF!
Dr. Golden Feedback – I am writing this testimonial because I feel strongly about the care that I received from Dr. Golden. I do not normally take the time to express my recommendations, I feel and have always felt that only exceptional service should be acknowledged and that is why I am writing this now. Being diagnosed with cancer is an extremely scary and emotional time, for both me and my family. The care, treatment and eventual outcome of the cancer has the ability to consume your every waking thought. Dr. Golden, from the initial consult, was professional, warm, caring and in touch with the mental anguish that I was obsessing about. He treated me and my wife with respect and consideration while helping us through this challenging time in our lives. It goes without saying that he is an extremely skilled surgeon; I exceeded all of the standard milestones of recovery and much to Dr. Golden’s dismay and eventual reprimand, even played softball two weeks after leaving the hospital. I can only express my deepest appreciation for all that he did for me and whole heartedly would recommend him to family and friends alike.
Excellent Doctor – Dr. Brian Golden is a great surgeon. At the age of 38 yrs old I was worried about having bladder surgery to correct my stress incontinence. I could not jump, run, sneeze, or cough without wearing a pad. I went years trying to find the right Doctor. I read all of Dr. Goldens reviews and decided to make an appointment.
Dr. Golden set me up for bladder surgery. The surgery went flawlessly! Now I can run, play, jump, sneeze, and cough without worrying about my bladder or wearing a pad. No more stress incontinence. Thank you for giving me my life back.
I would highly recommend Dr. Golden to anyone…
Excellent Surgeon – Dr. Brian Golden is a fabulous surgeon! My husband was diagnosed with kidney cancer in September 2009. He was only 41, and in seemingly excellent health (he’s an ex-pro-volleyball player) when he started urinating blood. Dr. Golden was the specialist called in to care for my husband. After studying all x-rays and scans, he explained everything to us in detail…all pros and cons…all worst and best case scenarios. He was straight forward, which was comfort in our situation. He needed to perform surgery and remove the mass.
My mother has had three types of cancer over the last 15 years, and she only trusts Mayo Clinic in Arizona. Being we lived in Nevada, going there to have this procedure done wasn’t out of the question. I did extensive research on Dr. Golden to weigh our options, and was confident in my findings. Dr. Golden is a certified specialist, and an expert using the Divinci machine, which leaves the smallest scar possible, meaning less damage and a faster recovery time.
The surgery went flawlessly! The whole kidney was removed, and my husband’s recovery was rapid.
I would highly recommend Dr. Golden to anyone…and when you’re shocked, scared, worried, and every other emotion that you experience during such a traumatic diagnosis, hopefully this testimony will offer you some sort of comfort, knowing you’re in such knowledgeable skilled hands.
Dr. Golden, The Very Best in the West – Having a kidney transplant at The Cleveland Clinic, I did not feel confident seeking medical care in Las Vegas. My nephrologist, Dr. Jain, said he understood my concerns and promised me the best in the west. Being from the east coast I have come to know what the best is. Dr. Golden is preeminent in his speciality and I can feel comfortable knowing I am receiving the best medical attention in the west!
Thank you for giving me peace of mind!
Wonderful Doctor/Peson – Dr. Golden is an excellent doctor. I was diagnosed w/ issues that were pretty extreme and needed help fast. He was compasionate, caring, and jumped to action immediately. I'd been telling another Dr. for 2 years that something wasn't right and was given the attention, until things went extremely bad.
I'm alive due to the fast action and thinking of this wonderful doctor and will be one of his patients as long as he is here in Las Vegas and practicing.
Dr Golen removed my Rt Kidney. – My situation is a little rare but I found out in March that my right kidney had no blood flow in it and it was basically dead. I saw 3 other specialist before I saw Dr Golden and all 3 told me to leave my kidney in and not have it removed that it was a congenital issue. In August I saw Dr. Golden because I was having some back pain. The minute I met with him he made me feel so comfortable. He recommended I remove my kidney right away due to being high risk for infection. The 2 weeks before my surgery I woke up in the middle of the night in the worst pain of my life. My husband rushed me to the ER and they told me my kidney was infected. They put a catheter in the kidney to drain it to relieve the pain. The day after this procedure they sent me home until my sugery. The next day my hospital doctor called me to tell me my blood was infected from the infection and I had to go back to the hospital right away to be admitted. I stayed in the hospital another 5 days because the infection was so bad. I finally got to have my surgery the following week. I wish I had met with Dr. Golden sooner because I wouldnt of had to go thru all of this pain. He is the sweetest doctor have ever had the chance of meeting. He took the best care of me, and made me and my family feel very comfortable! I would highly recommend Dr Golden to anyone who has kidney problems. He has the best bedside manner!
Thank you Dr. Golden for taking such good care of me!!
Dr.Golden Saved Most of my kidney - No Dialysis for me! – This note is my thanks to Dr. Golden for saving most of my left kidney.
My story is a little unusual, since I had already lost my right kidney to cancer in 2002. That whole kidney was removed in a traditional operation through a long “shark bite” that was awfully painful and took several months to recover from. Recently my doctor found a new tumor in my left kidney (the only one I have left!). I was scared I would need this kidney removed, then be hooked up to a dialysis machine for the rest of my life.
The urologist who took out my right kidney years ago recommended Dr. Brian Golden. My primary doctor rated Dr. Golden as “EXCELLENT” which of course influenced my decision, but the deciding moments were when I actually met and discussed my case with Dr. G. He showed me my CAT scan and the tumor. He described the operation using the da Vinci robot (robotic partial nephrectomy) and showed me how much of my kidney could be saved. He had a very reassuring bedside manner, was confident (but not arrogant), and answered all my questions. He made me feel comfortable that I’d found the right surgeon for my terrifying situation.
The surgery went great! MY KIDNEY WAS WORKING JUST AS WELL AFTER SURGERY as beforehand. The few little incisions weren’t very painful and I was out of the hospital in just a day and a half. When I saw Dr. Golden after surgery, he said the pathology report said all the cancer was removed. My primary care doctor was absolutely amazed at my speedy recovery and the difference in my incisions for the right and left kidney operations!
IF YOU HAVE KIDNEY CANCER, GO SEE DR. GOLDEN. I’M EXTREMELY HAPPY AND THANKFUL THAT I DID. NO DIALYSIS FOR ME! Yeah!!
