Dr. Golden was great! He tells you what he can and cannot do on your nose. He doesn't sell false expectations. His staff is awesome, so friendly. He is quirky but the man knows what he is doing!

SO happy I did my research regarding rhinoplasty doctors and found Dr. Golden. The main thing about him is he focuses on what is realistic regarding what can or cannot be done, and has no problem communicating that. Additionally, he is fair and promises that as his patient, you are his patient for life and any problems after surgery are corrected by him and covered by the initial cost (none of this bs about still needing to pay anesthesia fees and such for a revision for something that wasn't completed correctly in the first place). I drove FIVE HOURS back and forth to see this man - multiple times for consultations, post-ops, etc. my rhinoplasty journey! And he is an angel - even offered to give me a cortisone shot during his stay in Chicago for a trip to save me the drive back and forth. Dr. Golden is Michigan's best kept secret - his before and afters yield perfect noses. Hope he never retires because a few friends are considering seeing him!

Dr. Golden has been doing this for a long time. He knows what he's doing and how to do it. He has a great eye and hand for what he does. Sometimes can be inconsistent verbally with what the plan is but overall cares about getting the agreed upon outcome.

Dr. Golden and his staff were very helpful and reassuring. Dr Golden has already called to follow up and my surgery was just this morning. His staff took care of me when i was in recovery, got my blanket, got me apple juice, let me rest in a nice recliner chair, etc. So far, so good.

First, i was very nervous about selecting the best doctor under a budget. I had seen too many hack jobs online. I am incredibly happy with my surgeon. I must warn though, he has a very unique personality. But then again, maybe all plastic surgeon have a bit of a weird streak. He was honest about what he could and could not do. Dr. Golden's philosophy is to not over-do it. He told me that if not enough was done, it could be fixed with a follow up procedure. However, if too much was done, there was no going back. He really stuck to that. I was not 100% pleased with the first results (though my nose looked 100 times better and i could actually breathe) he did another minor procedure free of cost. He really is a perfectionist. But he knows what he is doing. He is also a rhinoplasty specialist. This means that he doesn't do 5,000 breast implants a year and 3 nose jobs- this means that the face is his specialty! The greatest advise i can give anyone who is searching for a surgeon, or even goes to see Dr. Golden is as follows: who cares if the receptionist doesn't smile when you walk in or is peppy, and who cares if the surgeon has a personality which is not necessarily your cup of tea. The only things that matter is how good of a surgeon is he. Dr. Golden was great. That is the most important part. Because when i was under and he was doing his magic, the secretary or the doc's personality were the last things that matter. Get references from potential doctors, and talk to the other people in the waiting room....

I was not planning on joining realself or writing a review. I've been looking on here before my surgery and right after to see reviews of Dr. Golden and to see how people are recovering. But now I have to share my experience with Dr. Golden. He was highly recommended to me; after my consultation and a little research online, I was confident that I made the right decision. Very very talented doctor, can't say enough good things. I would recommend him to anyone. If anyone has any questions about the surgery or Dr. Golden, or if you want to see pictures, feel free to PM me.

Didn't do my research. Chose on a whim.

Anyone who says something about his personality doesn't have a clue about how dismissive doctors can be. I love his personality and his concern for his patients and his interest in the outcome. Surgery is very unnerving, but he makes you laugh and reassures you. At the end of the day, though, someone's personality doesn't matter in the slightest. What matters is how talented they are. Dr. Golden delivers. No one else will be able to offer you a better outcome. Period.
