Dr. Goldgeir is confident to the point of arrogance. He was not comfortable being confronted by questions and responded in a defensive, aggressive manner asking me about my background and telling me he's never had a patient ask these kinds of questions before. The doctor prescribed a combination of Retin A and Hydricortisone to me, that had to be compounded at the pharmacy and presented to me in a large pill bottle. This exposes the product to bacteria and oxidation. I questioned the Dr. about this and he grudgingly wrote separate scripts. It bothered me that he prescribes treatments in a way that knowingly exposes his patients to potential wasted efficacy and money when it is so easy to just order two separate tubes of product.
I expect a physician in my employ to educate me on my conditions, so his clipped manner didn't stop me from returning to his office repeatedly for treatments. I'm looking for competence, not charm.
Over the course of a year it became obvious that the Dr. and his staff were also ignorant about things like sunscreen,( a key component of the prevention of melasma, one of my conditions). I invested over $600.00 in laser treatments with him, which were successful. Unfortunately the Dr.'s advice about sunscreen was so misinformed,that my investment in laser treatments was literally unprotected. Only after the melasma reoccurred I learned the sunscreen he endorsed provided inadequate uva screening. (uva spectrum triggers hyperpigmentation) When I raised this issue of uva screening, staff had never heard of industry standard values like PPD, a measure of uva protection, and did not understand that uv filter zinc oxide, while screening well in uva spectrum, is an inefficient filter at the rates in which it is formulated in the sunscreens they advised. All of this information is published in numerous peer reviewed studies I accessed on the Web. I ultimately began to suspect that the practice was more devoted to recouping their investment in laser equipment then anything else.
