I've had nothing but great experiences with Dr. Golden and his staff.
I've been nothing but happy and relieved since I have been with my swedish/providence team. Anyone with serious health concerns in my area should be worth them if they aren't already.
Dr Golden came highly recommended to us; even so he is exceeding those high expectations.
I connect with Dr Golden via MyChart. He is always responsive, either himself or boys a member of his surgical team who he knows that I know. Dr Golden has always been kind and caring and professional in fact all the nurses who took care of me lauded his praises. His attitude towards members of his team and the nurses was always respectful and I could not have expected more thorough care. He ordered special treats and seemed available for whatever was needed 24/7. He is absolutely the best. And my friends are enjoying trying to find the stitches on my face. He could be a quilter! Plus...I love Dr Gs sense of humor even in the worst circumstances he is appropriate and connects with his patients on many levels. Kudos!!!!
Dr Golden is personable, knowledgeable and skilled. He is a true asset!
Dr. Golden is great. I always enjoy my check-ups with him.
I feel that I am receiving the best care possible with this care team.
Dr. Golden is very nice and easy to talk to about any issues you have with your health. He has shown kindness to the cancer issues I have in my mouth and took time to not cause pain when examining my cancer. He really listens to me and has answers right away to alleviate any fears I have. He is a treasure.
I am so grateful Dr. Golden was recommended to my family and I. His attitude and knowledge left me very confident I was where I needed to be. So blessed to have met him and his staff.
Absolutely no negative experiences. This office has staff that are extremely attentive & caring. It's the best office I visit and I go to many! Dr Golden is the most attentive and caring person I've worked with - not always true with surgeons. He understands my concerns and always makes sure I understand his information. Since my first office encounter with him prior to the first of two surgeries, I have had complete confidence in his skill and knowledge. He put me at ease the first time I met him and has always been honest with me aout my illness. When things have gone well, he's the first to express happiness about it. He simply never distances himself from his patients. Highly recommend him!
Dr Golden saved my life and for that I will be forever grateful.

Dr. Golden is a nice caring man. But as he is a cancer doctor I don't really want to see him again after my surgery and treatment are done. I don't want to have cancer again.

It's all good!
Nothing but excellent care. I only met Dr Golden once before he operated to remove mouth cancer bu I saw him or one of his associates every day I was at Swedish recovering. Without exception, they addressed my medical issues, answered my questions clearly and were friendly. I couldn't have had better care! Not once did I receive even 'good' care - it was always the best!
I felt comfortable about how confident the Dr is
Professional at its finest
Excellent Doctor explained everything very clearly and put me at ease before and after surgery. Great surgery recover
Dr. Golden and his staff is first class. He treats you as a human and explains things in a manner that is easy to understand.
I was impressed that Dr. Golden called me the day before my appointment himself, to let me know my pathology results even though I was going to see him the next day. He said he didn't want me to wait one more minute wondering if I had cancer or not, that was really kind and compassionate.
Good so far
Excellent care from Dr Golden and his team!
I was very pleased with the care I was given during my surgery and leading up to surgery after care was very comforting.
