Excellent. Caring, analytic and detail oriented.

  May 3, 2023
I'm always impressed with the way Dr Goldenberg explains options and listens carefully to my responses. I appreciate the respect she shows. And I respect the intelligent explanations she gives. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.

  Apr 17, 2023
30-40 minute wait past appointment time (10:20 am) to see the doctor. The MA popped her head in the door once to say that I hadn't been forgotten.

  Apr 12, 2023
Dr. Goldenberg is as good as they come. I place so much faith and trust in her.

  Apr 11, 2023
Dr. Goldberg is thorough, patient, and a good listener. She does not rush me through my concerns and issues. She offers different options to discuss and explore. I trust her knowledge and experience. She is the first doctor I have had in decades with whom I have been able to have continuous care and who has gotten to know me.

  Apr 5, 2023
Provider apparently was covering for my regular provider. When a change in treatment plan she ordered that visit instead caused greatly enhanced pain I expected some kind of ameliorative action. Instead I was strung along for a few hours and then just dropped.

  Mar 28, 2023
Dr. Goldenberg was wonderful. She totally understood my concerns and her solutions were really great. I came away feeling so much better. She deserves my deepest appreciation.

  Mar 27, 2023
Great attention paid to what I said.

  Mar 27, 2023
This provider tends to be dismissive, explains away my concerns with conclusions that do not consider all the information, is paternalistic in her questioning and care, and seems to have already decided what she believes is going on which narrows her focus and questioning. I've left multiple appointments feeling invalidated and as though she sees me as an overly anxious patient who needs to be "managed" rather than heard and informed. I will change my PCP after our most recent visit.

  Mar 10, 2023
I called for nurse advice and did not expect an in-person appointment. My established PCP is not available, but Dr. Goldenberg addressed my health issue thoroughly.

  Mar 3, 2023
Dr. Goldenberg provides thorough examinations and is inquisitive about symptoms and patient concerns.

  Feb 21, 2023
Dr Goldenberg spent a lot of time with me and I felt very listened to by her.

  Feb 20, 2023
On my visit... I was called into the waiting room with the nurse on time the nurse took my vitals. Then I wait 52 minutes for the doctor to come in. No one ever stopped In to let me know what was happening. I was ready to leave as doctor knocked, I was putting on my coat to leave. This has happened before but not to this extent. This has been the case a time or two before but nothing like the [date removed] appointment. The waiting room was not busy either. There was just one other patient In the waiting room when I arrived. Another situation that needs attention is when you call for an appointment it takes forever for someone to answer the phone. Maybe time to move on....

  Feb 13, 2023
She was patient and thorough about my pain issues that that defined my request for an expedited appointment

  Feb 6, 2023
This was my first visit to this provider. However overall I was very happy with Dr. Goldenberg.

  Feb 3, 2023
My labs were after the visit and there were a few unexpected/atypical values, but I haven't seen a note or explanation in MyHealth yet. Dr. Goldenberg is a wonderful practitioner. I've been with her for years.

  Feb 3, 2023
Dr Goldenberg is very thorough, intelligent, approachable and caring

  Feb 1, 2023
My doctor is wonderful and I trust her. The only issue with this visit was I wasn't called back until 40 min after my appointment and didn't see her for another 15 min. I'm assuming that there must have been some kind of emergency in the morning because my appointment was at 0950.

  Jan 31, 2023
Very long wait in exam room, no apology for keeping me waiting. I know the doc doesn't have precise control over the schedule or how long prior appointments require, but it would be nice to get a simple "sorry to keep you waiting"

  Jan 26, 2023
This was an excellent visit, following up on recent infections and hospitalization. Dr. Goldenberg spent a lot of time reviewing all the test results and my current health after the treatments. Thank you!

  Jan 19, 2023
I know the team at Legacy Medical Group NW are doing the best they can with staffing shortages.

  Jan 18, 2023
I don't have any problems with her.

  Jan 16, 2023
I couldn't ask for a better PCP, Dr. G is kind, smart, and warm. She is always up to speed on my health/tests/meds and addresses my concerns in easy to understand language. She involves me in decisions. She listens & is respectful always. She cares about me as a person, I'm not just a customer.

  Jan 13, 2023
Dr.Goldenberg is a good health partner and makes sure she directs to the right specialists.

  Jan 13, 2023
Only complaint is length of time waiting on phone to make initial appointment.

  Jan 12, 2023
Just a simple apology for being 45 minutes late would have changed the entire tone of the appointment. My time is important too. I respect Dr. Goldenberg and will continue to see her.

  Jan 10, 2023
After I was put into the exam room and the nurse took my vitals, I waited about 30 minutes for the doctor arrive.

  Dec 20, 2022
I like my provider (dr.); I hate how difficult it is to contact her & how poorly the communication between her office & your lab are.

  Dec 14, 2022
Dr Goldenberg spent a lot of time talking to me and did not act rushed even though the office was understaffed.

  Dec 9, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg is sympathetic, wise and patient. She listens, assesses and responds with obvious care.

  Dec 9, 2022
Dr Goldenberg is a compassionate listener yet raises good and sometimes stern questions to guide my understanding. I always leave thinking of my health in a way that is more beneficial. I left this particular appt with referrals and potential solutions to problems I did not think were fixable.

  Dec 5, 2022
Love Dr. Goldenberg.

  Dec 2, 2022
I didn't feel a connection nor did I feel this provider had good information & feedback on how to progress with my diagnosis other than medication & PT. I would love a provider to acknowledge mind & body connection as well.

  Nov 30, 2022
I thought Ms. Goldenberg knew what my appt was for and we discussed my allergic reaction I was having then she recommended want I should do for a 2 week time period. She's not my provider but I needed to get seen and she had an open slot. I was impressed by her visit. So I would recommend her to family and friends.

  Nov 22, 2022
Daniela Goldenberg is a perfect doctor/advisor for me.

  Nov 21, 2022
Dr Goldenberg is very thorough & conscientious & encouraging.

  Nov 21, 2022
Very pleased. I feel valued and listened to with Dr Goldenberg

  Nov 18, 2022
My visit was good & my problem addressed. However, my doctor was "rushed." I am most aware of staff shortage. It is in all of our hospitals. It is sad & must not go on!

  Nov 15, 2022
I've seen doctors in this office for 30 years or more. I have been pleased with the providers and the services I receive. Dr. Goldenberg is friendly, professional and answers all of my questions snd concerns.

  Nov 14, 2022
The doctor and staff provided exactly what I needed.

  Nov 14, 2022
She was phenomenal. This was our first visit and I felt truly heard and cared for as a patient. She listened to me, explained concern in ways I comprehended and will apply differently than when it heard similar sentiments from other physicians in the past. Her ability to balance compassion and a medical opinion is a beautiful gift. I left feeling thoroughly evaluated and in good hands as a primary care physician. Thank you so very much, I imagine it's often a long and tough role these days.

  Oct 28, 2022
Dr goldenberg is very attentive and caring abd works with my life style for great health. I considered switching providers to be closer to my home but I like dr goldenberg too much to switch. We will do online appt if no in person services required in the future. I feel very fortunate to have dr goldenberg and her support staff

Dr G - knowledgeable - experienced - thoughtful - friendly - Perfect Professional

I waited in the exam room for an hour before I saw my doctor.

  Oct 21, 2022
I have utmost confidence in Dr. Goldenberg.

  Oct 21, 2022
It was all good.

  Oct 21, 2022
Had some urgent health concerns that Dr. Goldenberg took seriously, talked through with me and made a plan. Very satisfied with her response to my concerns.

  Oct 19, 2022
I like Dr. Goldenberg very much.

  Oct 17, 2022
Great doctor.

  Oct 17, 2022
Good experience/annual meds review; Dr Goldenberg very thorough reviewing lab results while engaging me in questions RE my lifestyle, changes/habits to recommend best course of treatment. Dr. G advocates health and wellness while promoting healthy habits. Excellent physician. Extremely grateful for her care and guidance. Office staff and assistants very good too!!

  Oct 17, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg always listens to my concerns and questions. She is a very intelligent, caring, knowledgeable Doctor.

  Oct 14, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg and her MA were both incredibly helpful, professional, and thorough. I appreciate all the help that the doctor has given me. She has followed up with my cardiologist to make sure I get the testing I need. I even got my flu shot which was an added bonus!

  Oct 11, 2022
Dr very good listener. Very confident and considerate of myfeelings

  Sep 30, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg was running behind and didn't have enough time to fully address all my questions.

  Sep 30, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg is kind, listens well, is always familiar with my chart, knowledgeable. In short, she is an excellent physician.

  Sep 28, 2022
I trust and respect Dr. Goldenberg and am thankful for her care.

  Sep 27, 2022
I spoke with one of the nurses associated with my PCP on the day before my visit because I felt I needed an appointment promptly. The nurse facilitated a visit the next day for which is am grateful. The nurse gave me some information regarding my pain complaint which was different than what I heard from my doctor at the appointment the next day. The nurse recommended that I take Tylenol, saying that I should avoid Advil at my age. At my visit with my doctor she told me that it would be fine for me to alternate recommended doses of Tylenol an and Advil.

  Sep 27, 2022
Good to see the dr again I have been gone for 18 months

  Sep 21, 2022
Good experiencehad my medical history on hand. Very professional and thorough.

  Sep 19, 2022
This appointment and Doctor were completely useless. Was insulted multiple times, accused of not listening to my other doctors, very rushed, not giving enough time to explain my story. Worst of all, labs were ordered by the scheduler but were straight up canceled by Dr. Goldenberg because she refused to believe they were necessary even after describing my symptoms and even though I've had concerning numbers on some things and hadn't had them in a year. I got nothing at all from this appointment except a lot of frustration. The office manager even had the nerve to tell me that "perhaps this clinic cannot help me", despite the fact that I was 100% respectful.

  Sep 16, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg ordered lab tests. I used to be able to go to the lab immediately and get the tests done, but now there's a long wait or you an appointment. I made one online, and the earliest I could get was 3 days later. I had to make 2 appointments because 2 tests can't be done with one. I also need to go to the hospital twice Instead of once. There was no confirmation of my appointments and they aren't listed on MyHealth. Your system Is very bad. I won't recommend Legacy to anyone.

  Sep 16, 2022
I am a long time client of Dr. Daniela Goldenberg. I am so very pleased to have her as my doctor. She is always there for me and gives me excellent care for whatever ails me. She gives me very good advice for my future health care planning. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank You.

  Sep 14, 2022
Provider is excellent. Medical assistants need to be warmer, friendlier... act like they like their job.

  Aug 26, 2022
She is really patient and understandable.

  Aug 23, 2022
Long wait in the reception area.

  Aug 23, 2022
She was taking the time allotted for her lunch hour to fit me in. I appreciated that very much. She immediately got tests underway to discover what the problem might be.

  Aug 19, 2022
Dr Goldenberg is professional, knowledgeable, kind, thoughtful and organized. The best.

  Aug 18, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg is the best doctor I've ever had. I would not go to anyone else. PLEASE provide her with the support team needed! Outside of Dr. G the staff has no idea of common courtesy.

  Jul 19, 2022
She always listens carefully to any concerns or questions I may have. She is a very attentive and caring doctor.

  Jul 15, 2022
This visit was a hoped for. Dr. G. gives an impression of interest & is caring & respectful. I never feel rushed.

  Jul 14, 2022
Provider was pleased with loss of weight and lowering of cholesterol levels and so went through all my medications. Replaced one and discontinued another. All was done in response to my labs tests of one week ago and expectations of further improvements.

  Jul 12, 2022
Doctor Goldenberg works hard to keep me well!!!!! I have the highest respect for her and feel privileged she is me doctor!!!!

  Jul 12, 2022
Visit was fine. Dr is fine, but Legacy itself needs improvement. Especially the covid response.

  Jul 5, 2022
We came up with a good plan together.

  Jul 1, 2022
Dr Goldenberg is a professional, efficient, thorough, and highly knowledgeable physician.

  Jun 29, 2022
Dr Goldenberg is a gem. I trust her completely and feel comfortable discussing health concerns that embarrass / emotionally distress me. The only issue I have is with support staff: there aren't enough. When I left a message for a PA to call me back, I received no call back. I had to call repeatedly to get attention and an appointment with Dr Goldenberg. Before Covid this was never a problem. Once I actually got an appointment and saw Dr Goldenberg everything went very smoothly. I value having Dr G as my physician and feel very fortunate to have her as my doctor. She is my husband's primary physician as well.

  Jun 28, 2022
Dr. G. Is thorough and caring. She asks a lot of questions and is a good listener. I trust her decisions and guidance.

  Jun 10, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg was very attentive. She asked a lot questions to understand my underlying issues with my right leg nerve pain and muscle weakness. Also, discussed follow-up testing. I appreciate the extra time she took to try to get to the bottom of my Issue

  Jun 8, 2022
Dr. Goldenberg is great. I am very glad that she is my doctor.
