Blood tests were ordered and hence I went to the Silverton Hospital Lab the same day of my appt. I have yet to here about these lab test results and whether any medication changes are warranted (or not ?) I would definitely like to know the results.

I had an appointment on [date deleted]. Showed up that morning and waited in the Silverton Office for 30 mins before I was told that the Doctor was on vacation. Scheduling should have notified me before I took time off work for a appointment.

In regards to the wait time, I understand that other clients sometimes have pressing problems and require more office visit time and as long as I have been with Silverton Health and now Legacy Health, I have never felt as though I am not getting the time I come to expect from Dr Golden or that I am being rushed because he is running late.

Dr Golden seemed to care more and gave me more time to ask questions than in the past. Maybe my attitude towards him or his to me but I think it was a different appointment than in the past. I was very pleased with this appointment.

I usually am impressed about how helpful the check in office is however not at this one. when I arrived 12 min late for my scheduled appt I was told it is cancelled by the office when I was 10 minutes late! they said I could go talk to Dr Golden's office to see if I could be seen. so I thanked them and did go to the front desk of his office. the secretary said "no. when you were 10 minutes late, we cancelled you for today's appt!"I asked to talk to his nurse. she came out and said I would have to schedule for next week! I explained I first of all thought it to be rediculous to cancel an appt when I hadn't checked in within 10 min of my confirmed appt. and I needed to see him that day. I had taken time off for this appt and if Dr Golden knew I was here he would say Yes she can be seen! The nurse said well we patients that are scheduled and here to see him so if you can't re-schedule for next week? you will need to sit and wait till he can see you. I said I will wait. she was not helpful or respectful! I waited 45 min to be called in by her. Once I got to see Dr Golden I said I am sorry I was late. He said -Oh that happens sometimes and it is not a problem. when I reported to him how I was treated and what the front offices had said and done, he told me that should have not happened and said : that is not how we run this office and I am sorry you had to go thru this! at that point we went on with my doctor appointment and as always! was treated with professional doctor appt and Dr Golden spent all the time needed with me and more! making sure all my questions were covered!

I've always liked Dr. Golden and the care he gives me, but I have, in the past, had negative experiences with the office staff. I let Dr. Golden know about that when I saw him a few months ago, because I had to stop taking a medication that I was getting free from Pfizer. The office staff simply couldn't get the instructions straight so Pfizer would continue to provide the medication that helped with chronic pain. I'm doing OK without it, but still feel frustrated because I didn't get the response I needed from the staff.

Dr. Golden meets you where you are at and explains both the cons and pros of any medication. He is willing to have a conversation regarding what may matter to me and maybe not another patient. He is respectful and unfailingly patient. And he can have a lovely sense of humor. Which can be helpful when talking about difficult matters.

The blood work report was much more comprehensive/detailed than in the past, but the report would be more meaningful if some written explanation were included describing the various parameters and why each is important to health.

I told him that as a child I may have experienced ADD and as an adult still have the attention related problems.This has never been addressed and I asked if it could be treated as an adult. I got the impression that it was not worth trying to reduce the effects of the problem . This was not helpful .

I rate Dr. Golden very high because he has always been what I need in a doctor. I have reservations about his office staff, however, because I had difficulty getting the help I needed with a Pfizer free medication, and finally gave it up, stopping the medication when they failed to do what needed to be done to get the medication. I guess I should have made an appointment and talked directly to Dr. Golden, because when I have, he has done what needed to be done.

Dr. Golden and the staff at the Silverton office are always professional and polite, however, trying to get through to the Silverton office through the Woodburn Clinics is another matter. They can be rude, unorganized and generally difficult to work with. Just one example: I had to reschedule this office once. When I called to reschedule, Clinics Services didn't have an appointment scheduled for me on that day. When I told them that I had an appt. card and had it on my calendar, they initially argued, and then looked back in their records. It turned out that Dr. Golden's schedule had changed and they had cancelled my appt. They didn't notify me that it had been cancelled and had I not had to reschedule, I would have shown up for my appt. and the Dr. wouldn't have been there. They didn't apologize or even acknowledge that I could have been very inconvenienced, as I take time off work (I work in Albany) to go to my Dr.'s appointments. This isn't the first time this type of thing has happened, and things like this have happened to my husband, as well. Dr. Golden and his Silverton staff are wonderful, but some of the staff at the clinics need customer service training in a very big way.

Had an xray(which I asked for to find a problem with my shoulder). Have had no results from the xray as yet. Saw the results of my bloodwork on my medical history in MyHealth. Have never had a "physical" - just asked if I had any problems and those were addressed. On my medical health summary on MyHealth it states that I am past due for osteoporosis screening. I have never had one to my knowledge.

The reason for the office visit was to do a physical exam. I go each 6 months to be checked for the blood test items that are borderline, or out of normal such as triglycerides, glucose, and PSA. Dr. Golden counsels me on how to improve in those areas, and it is very helpful for me in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Dr Golden and his back office staff are great! knowledgeable, helpful, kind, friendly, efficient.... The only problems I have had are with the central office that answers phones. They are very inconsistent with the content and concerns I have when trying to leave a message for the Dr. I have started leaving messages with the Dr. through the myhealth website. That has worked much better. I always get a response from him or his office staff.

I am very pleased with Dr. Frank Maurice Golden. I try to be an informed patient about any medicines I'm taking and treatments I'm receiving. I do a lot of research about them...and so does Dr. Golden. He is very knowledgeable and up-to-date on medicines and treatments for various conditions. He respects my opinion, answers my questions thoroughly and explains exactly why he's chosen a particular medicine or treatment. He's been my husband's PCP for 2 or 3 years, but I have only been going to him for a few months. I have Primary Bilary Cholangitis (HCC) and he has a lot of knowledge about that because his own mother had it. So he is managing my care, and coordinating with the many specialists I've needed to go to treat my condition.

The clinic was supposed to have sent my ultrasound results to Willamette Valley Endocrinology for a consult appointment. The endocrinologists off had to request the records THREE TIMES before they were finally sent. This resulted in a delay of scheduling a biopsy that Dr. Golden wanted me to have as soon as possible. Dr. Golden is great but the staff who is supposed to send records really held up this process. The service was extremely disappointing and created a lot of anxiety for me.

The visit with Dr.Golden was very good, he realized the urgency of my problem. The resulting hospital stay was very trying. They spent a day and a half deliberating on how to proceed dealing with a blood clot in my upper left leg. I couldn't have breakfast or lunch, and just minimal water.
