She is the most caring and compassionate Dr one can ever meet. She is always available to discuss any concern or worry, to answer any question without judging. She it the best, I couldn’t recommend her more

Like I said above, Dr. Goldman was so helpful and understanding. I walked away from the appointment feeling more confident in my path and like I could reach out with any questions I might have. I felt like she really listened to me and adjusted based on what my thoughts were in terms of treatment options and that meant so much.

She does not come across as a doctor who is just interested in getting over with discussing their patients' reports and get done with the appointment. She instead takes time to explain the results and gives us enough time to understand the results and ask questions for any doubts. She is a doctor who is genuinely interested in her patients' well-being.

Explains things clearly. Takes steps to help when things get gummed up. Understands and explains all the contingencies of this process for my personal situation. Feels like she cares about me as a patient.

Dr Goldman had read through our file ahead of time and came prepped with a data based approach for next steps. She has a reassuring manner, explained everything to us, and answered all our questions.

Dr. Goldman and Kristen are two of the most supportive women in medicine Iâ€™ve ever met. They care about what they do and the patients theyâ€™re taking care of with such detail and make sure you never have any questions unanswered

Dr Goldman has an excellent bedside manners. She made us feel comfortable discussing multiple options for future, even though our first two attempts were unsuccessful. A great physician that we will stay with despite many other clinics out there.

I trust Dr. Goldman and her team (especially Nurse Kaitlin) and value the medical care they provide. All in all, Iâ€™ve had a very positive experience with Dr. Goldman and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Goldman has been a very kind and sensitive guide through this delicate and very personal process. She is direct and realistic when talking about the medical information which is overall a good thing. She answers questions patiently and discusses what she thinks is the best plan, why she's adjusting certain medications, etc. She takes time to know your personal story and I am very happy to have her expertise and warmth guiding this process for me.

She really makes me feel like she cares, always has a personalized plan in place and makes sure I am comfortable with all our steps. I do not just feel like a number to her even though she has many patients.

I've submitted a survey several times. Each time, I sing Dr. Goldman's praises. She is everything you would ever want"need in a physician. We think the world of Dr. Goldman. Kind, intelligent, empathetic, well-spoken, friendly, talented, etc.

The entire staff is so so nice. Nurses and doctors respond back very quickly and explain all situations clearly. Plus I had my first ultrasound of my baby today and saw a very fast and very tiny heartbeat. It is my first child and there are no words to explain that joy. Northwertern made this possible for me and my husband.

The patient portal is extremely intuitive and convenient to access appointment info, fill out forms or ask questions. Also, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful when getting me set up as a new patient and scheduling appointments.

Dr. Goldman came off as capable yet personable. She took time to explain the fertility testing and egg freezing process to me, and to listen to my goals and situation. I have many friends considering egg freezing, and have already recommended her to one.

She broached difficult issues (namely, my age) with kindness and compassion. Also, the waiting room seemed very busy, but our appointment was not rushed. She provided ample time to explain things and answer questions.

Dr Goldman has been so supportive as a doctor. She always answers all my questions in a thoughtful way, has a great repoire with me as a patient, and is very knowledgeable about fertility and related issues. I will recommend her every opportunity I get!

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
