I regret not consulting Dr. Goldenberg earlier in my journey to obtain FAA medical certification. His expertise and patient guidance were instrumental in getting my certification process back on track. Dr. Goldenberg was exceptionally responsive and went above and beyond to ensure a smooth journey, ultimately leading to my approval. His dedication to his patients' success is truly commendable.

I have never had a more enjoyable experience dealing with doctors than I did with Dr. Goldenberg. He not only answers the phone when I call, replies to my emails, always in less than 24 hours, but fit me right into his schedule and was on time, and absolutely completed everything that was needed. I am an airline pilot. I needed some evaluations done and paperwork to renew my FAA flight medical, and he was able to complete this with no issues or follow-up needed whatsoever. I highly recommend him, and if the need arises, I would gladly go back to him for help.

I am thankful for Dr. Goldenberg. He has a strong understanding of how to handle the FAA and medicals, especially when it comes to the special reporting that is required. This was my second year working with him, both times he's been incredibly helpful, quick, and successful in getting me my 2nd class medicals. I am certain that I will be working with him as long as the FAA requires it.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, the “No Surprises Act”, health care providers need to give patients who do not have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
