Dr.Golden is fellowship trained in minimally invasive surgery. He cares for all adult urology patients, from those opting for a no-needle, no-scalpel vasectomy to those with urologic cancer. One of his areas of emphasis is in laparoscopic procedures for urologic malignancy. Dr. Golden is skilled in laparoscopic and robotic kidney and adrenal surgery. He also provides care for general urology problems including kidney stones, BPH and erectile dysfunction.
Dr. Golden is compassionate, warm and caring. 100% great. HIGHLY recommend the doctor. Avoid office staff (Jessica) RUDE and bratty!! Inexcusable!

Please note that this review was about my old office in Nevada. My NEW office staff in Sacramento is wonderful. They prove to me on a daily basis that they care about my patients as much as I do.
I made an appointment for a consultation. Spent 40 minutes in the waiting room before being called into the exam room. Waited another 40 minutes in the exam room. There were no apologies or explanations from any of the staff. I asked what the problem was- Dr. Golden overheard me and explained several appointments had gone longer than planned and added "it is what it is and the longer I stand here talking to you about it, the longer it'll be before I can see you". So, after another 10 minutes of waiting I walked out- demanding a refund. An unprofessional and inexcusable hour and 30 minute wait. I wasn't the only one- I overheard another gentleman in the waiting room saying he was tired of waiting and was ready to walk out. Another greedy, arrogant doctor trying to squeeze in too many patients.

I apologize for the inconvenience. Sometimes things happen that cannot be predicted or controlled, like this day when several new patients in a row had unexpectedly complex issues. Given the opportunity, I would have made sure you received the time and attention you required and done my best to figure out your problem, too. That was just one of those days. Sorry.
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.

This Dr is caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable. He was quick to react to my issues, especially since it was such a surprise issue that happened. He's been a wonderful support, and he should be sought out by anyone in the Las Vegas area searching for a GOOD UROLOGIST! He has 2 offices (1) in Henderson, and (1) in Las Vegas at San Martin (Thus Appts Only - for now). YOU GO DR. GOLDEN!! - YOU ARE THE BEST OF LAS VEGAS PERPETUALLY - Too bad there isn't a category for Good physicians in "Best of Las Vegas" - You'd be there repeatedly every year!
