These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Our family has been with Spokane Casdiology for over 30 years. We started with them shortly after my husband had a heart attack. After another Doctor from another group assured me that [...] wouldn't make it over five years, coupled with the dismissive attitude I moved his care. He has survived over 30 years in their care having passed away this last (2017). During that course of time I also developed some blood pressure issues and also became a patient . They were very attentive to me especially during the end of our battle with alszimers, I was taking care of him until the the last two months of his life. When he did pass Dr Goldberg made an enquirer as to my health. His staff sent a card of condolence, and when my visit came I was looking for his concent to have Back surgery. He ran the tests necessary to asssure that my heart was healthy to withstand the surgery.

excellent communicator of health issues.

Seemed preoccupied, disengaged, unwilling to acknowledge concerns, answered a call during visit and made a point to mention that he would finish with his current situation (me) in two minutes.

Dr. Goldberg was clear, efficient, obviously a very talented heart specialist. he also exhibited a sense of humor which was appreciated by me.

Dr. Goldberg and his RN [...] were great and very courteous. His front desk staff could use some people skills. I felt as if I was burdening them and did not feel welcomed. Also his Medical assistant [...] could use some people skills as well. During my initial assessment she argued with me about my pharmacy. I'm competent enough to know where my pharmacy is. very insulting

Provider has cared for me many years. He is the "best" ! The last visit he seemed very much in a hurry. Having heard my symptoms before, seemed annoyed symptoms continuing. Not sure actual causes of symptoms are being addressed.

Good experience.

I am having trouble understanding the nature of my heart health problems. Perhaps because the doctors don't know the exact cause of my problems? I get general answers to my questions that don't point to an exact cause?????? The problems I am having are under control at this time.

I had only one initial visit with Dr. Goldberg. He was referred to me by my primary for an assessment of my heart. Dr. Goldberg ordered a nuclear stress test so we are in the middle of analyzing my problem.

Referred from cardiologist in Walla Walla, St. Mary's Hospital. This was my first visit after moving to Liberty Lake. Finding a new Doctor can be sometimes traumatic and troubling. This was easy and Dr. Goldberg is a GEM. Couldn't ask for a more friendly and caring physician. Thank you.

Dr Goldberg is an exultant Dr. I'm not a fan of the scribes in the room during visit.

My technician spoke very fast. He may have explained the use of a heart monitor hundreds of times, but it was my first time to hear it.

07/19/2016
I feel as though I do not get total care and also feel that since I am 83 years old it is quick appoints also I live in valley and always ask for valley reservations not always that way thanks

The only thing I would like to have more of is time with Dr. Goldberg. Not a lot more but I always feel he is rushing to get to the next patient. I know doctors have time limitations, so I'd love it if we could do away with them.
100

07/03/2016
They are very friendly and concerned about all your needs! They listen and give answers right away or if they can't, they will get the answers for you and will call.

Dr. Goldberg always has been sensitive and very understanding to my welfare and I am always happy to see him and his happy personality make me in a good mode & have had a good visit.

Dr Goldberg seemed to be in a hurry to get out the door. I had some questions that didn't get answered. I don't want to take medication and I have alternative ways to get the same results and he didn't want to even consider that way of doing things. It was very difficult for me to get a word in as it seemed he had no consideration of me taking alternative medicine.
100

06/20/2016
Dr. Goldberg is amazingl... super smart, caring and witty. I literally trust him with my life. I couldn't respect him more. It is sad to know one day he will retire. He will be sorely missed.

06/08/2016
Dr Goldberg was "specialty care" for me. I was referred to him from my primary provider at [...]. I also saw his tech RN who moniters pacers/defibrillators. She was fantastic !!!! Also the MA and other RN's were great ! Everyone treated me with respect for my knowledge base (also case manager RN level) and clearly answered all of my Q. Compared to the cardiologist office who I left, this total appointment and getting to know Dr G and his staff was an absolute pleasure !!!!

Have been a patient of Dr. Goldberg's since 1985 - He is now & has always been professional, knowledgeable & caring -

I think the receptionist was overwhelmed with a patient who was very early to their appointment and line began to form while the other went on break.

Would like Dr. Goldberg as a next door neighbor---A great guy!!! But he works too hard.

05/11/2016
it was my experience with the M.A. which may be well improved for patients She, [...], said to me multiple times, ..."usually...patients...wear a Top to cardiology appts. so they can just pull top up...usually...patients know how to access the Internet...usually people enter a username..." etc, etc.! I did not have prior knowledge, nor was I informed by your paperwork sent prior to my appt. of the seeming required garb! really ridiculous in my experience here. I wore a dress. Robin offered me nothing for a Cloak & modesty issues either. Because in her view, ..."most people"... to exhaustion. [...] Dr. Goldberg and the lovely lady doctor listened well as far as I am aware. Reception was great! Kindness Is powerful. [...]

Next to last appointment on a Friday. Felt like consultation was rushed and my questions and concerns were considered unimportant or irrelevant.

03/08/2016
Dr. Goldberg is very knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. I have always received the highest standard of care at his hands. My only concern lies with the scribe program. I must say that I felt self-conscious with the scribe in the room. I can see the merits of the idea, but the reality leaves a lot to be desired.

Dr. Golbergs nurse or asst, who called me & in room with me, was not friendly, not nice, didn't smile, and her tone when she 'lectured' me [...]. Dr Goldberg was great.
