It is pathetic that people have nothing better to do than trash a dead man. Get a life.

To all the dear wonderful people,family,friends & total strangers thank you from the BOTTOM OF MY HEART for all of your incite full,beautiful words & most of all your kindness to my 2 wonderful daughters that kept defending a courageous man who needed no "excuses " as to who he was.
To all the SHALLOW,VILE INDIVIDUALS……KAarma & Ronzoni for your information my best friend & brilliant diaognostician husband suffered from being BI POLAR !!!!!! For your information mental illness is NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED ABOUT !!!!! Yes he was in a Psychiatric Facility for THREE MONTHS & guess what Dr G. came out of the facility brand new like the man I had fallen in love with. As far as treating "drug patients" he DID TREAT THOSE GETTING OFF DRUGS not aiding & abetting them. Since you are so nosey and self righteous he was on SPEED DIAL with the SUFFOLK COUNTY NARCOTICS SQUAD !!!!! Drug seeking patients stole numerous prescription pads as well as ALTERED prescriptions. Guess what the DRUG ENFORCEMENT AGENCY came to our office at least THREE TIMES to look at ALL of our patients charts because once Dr. Goldstein discovered the DRUG SEEKING PATIENTS ABUSE HE DISMISSED THEM FROM THE PRACTICE. For your GOD DAMN INFORMATION A FULL AUTOPSY WAS PERFORMED on my late sweet husband with FULL toxicology report and guess what you vile people he tested NEGATIVE !!!!! He died of an AORTIC DISSECTION. Check your facts you idiots …..its a Public Record ! Leave my beautiful , young daughters ALONE . How truly hope Karma pays you back for making up the disgusting things you emotionally scarred my children with who were 16 & 14 at the time of David's sudden death. God forgive me but you should ROT IN HELL for emotionally SCARING my children who lost their innocence the day their father died.

There are many inconsistencies...and then there is truth. One persons illusion does make it truth because someone says so. Trying to make up for past transgressions by trying to do good deeds.....Will not wash it away no matter how you try........

I just found out today that he was gone. I'm to late to thank him. I thought about it so many times. today so many years later I looked him up on Google. How sad it breakes my heart. I had lym and other doctors wouldn't keep me on antibiotics for more then a month. It helped but the symptoms woud return. He put me on the meds and gave me a different one every month. I got better after suffering for four years. By Doctor Goldstein I have told so many people how you saved my life. Sorry I was so late.

Sorry to hear about Dr. Goldstein's passing. He was extremely courteous to my 80 plus year old mother. He even invited her into his office to discuss jewish history. The only problem was that the office was not managed well, and he and the physician assistant did not agree on my mother's course of treatment. While she was waiting for an appointment with a new physician - a month, she landed in the hospital for the concern that Dr. G's PA mentioned to me. Great PA... I wish her well.
As far as the doctor's family goes, I wish them well, too. Nobody gets it right all the time!

I was one of many patients of Dr Goldsteins. He was so much more than a doctor to me, he was a friend! I am in total shock to hear now, of his passing. I left Long Island in 03. My heart goes out to his family. May he rest in peace.

I just read about Dr Goldsteins passing. I left NY in 03. He was my Dr for years, and he was the BEST!!! He trying cared about his patience, and he went over and above what was necessary. I am so very sad to hear he is gone. To his family, I want to say, please don't listen to the negative "crazies" the world is full of them. Keep the good thoughts and be proud that your father touched so many people lives, and hearts!

I know it's been a while, but u left NY years ago and found out about Dr. Goldstein recently. I was searching the web to find him just to say hi and found this. I am so very sorry for your loss. I was one of his first patient. He was a wonderful caring, funny soul. May he rest in peace.
