    Dr. Goldenberg was immensely helpful in allaying my anxieties throughout the process of tracking my Prostate Cancer. It’s been a year since my operation and I am filled with gratitude and awe for what has been done for me.

    Dr. Goldenberg helped me through a very large stepping stone in my life with his very knowledgeable and personal manner. Our family is very appreciative of all that was done for me. From the moment when I first met him I knew that he was the person I most trusted my life with. There was never a rush, and I knew that he understood how I felt and he put me at ease. It is his confident manner and a little humor that helps one to overcome their fears. I am most thankful that he did the surgery for me and my future looks very good. Certainly the best Urologist in Western Canada for prostate problems. Thank you Dr. Goldenberg.
