What Our Clients Are Saying
Joel Yarmush, MD
We hired Dr. Sheldon Goldstein of Gold Level Consulting to lead a faculty development workshop on mentoring. It was superb. Dr. Goldstein brought a wealth of knowledge and expertise from several areas, including mentoring, coaching and executive training that will certainly improve the mentoring our faculty provide and, thereby, the achievements of our trainees. The techniques described are generalizable and could certainly be adapted to mentoring and onboarding in fields as diverse as law, medicine, engineering, business, education and others. The connections he described with executive coaching make clear Dr. Goldstein is an expert in that area as well. I recommend Gold Level Consulting without reservation.
When I was in pre-production for my first feature-length film, Sheldon’s consulting proved invaluable to me. Despite the fact that Sheldon is trained as a doctor, he knew intuitively what I needed as a filmmaker. If there was something he was not familiar with regarding my field, he would research it intensely, and present me with great suggestions and recommendations within days, and help me approach the problem in new ways that I would never have thought of on my own. For example, after months of unsuccessful searching for the right locations for my film locally, after meeting with Sheldon, he suggested just the right location in just the right town, so that every indoor and outdoor location needed for the film was within 10 or 15 minutes of each other. We even had room and board for the entire film crew and cast, and it was within our budget. Sheldon is creative, hard-working, and dedicated to helping you make your dream come true. He has a wealth of contacts, a positive attitude, and he’s funny—he’ll have you laughing throughout the whole process.
Rebecca Varela, M.D.
Dr. Sheldon Goldstein was a cardiac anesthesiologist when I was a resident at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. He was enjoyable to work with, despite the fact that he insisted on extremely high standards of clinical practice and patient care. In addition, he prepared me for the grueling oral examinations in anesthesiology. His teaching guided me both in terms of didactics, and in terms of how to interact with the four examiners. I entered the examination confident and passed the first time. Sheldon is the best teacher I have known.
David Amar, M.D.
Dr. Goldstein helped prepare me for the certification exam in advanced intra-operative echocardiography. He taught me briefly, both by demonstrating various advanced TEE applications and reviewing key didactic concepts. With his help, I passed the exam the first time. Dr. Goldstein is a superb cardiac anesthesiologist and one of the best teachers I know.
Michael Taragin, M.D.
I first met Dr. Sheldon Goldstein while I was a resident anesthesiologist at Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn, N.Y. He was a cardiac attending anesthesiologist at the time and I was fortunate enough to work with him many times. He was an excellent mentor, very knowledgeable and extremely patient. His expertise and exemplary patient care were obvious to all. I had the privilege to co-author two chapters in an anesthesiology textbook with Sheldon and witnessed first-hand his hard work and dedication. I have always found Sheldon to be honest, warm, and intelligent. Sheldon has many different interests. He is highly motivated and strives for perfection in all that he does.
We have used Dr. Sheldon Goldstein as a consultant and are very satisfied with his expertise and proactive, energetic approach to customer service and business development. With his strong medical background and business acumen, he understood our Biotech company and the science behind it very quickly. We recommend him highly.
Lawrence Kushins, M.D
I supervised Dr. Sheldon Goldstein in my position as Chairman of the Anesthesia Department at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Goldstein is a highly motivated individual who is capable of identifying and solving problems. During his years as a cardiac anesthesiologist, he observed the lack of a laboratory in the operating rooms that was necessary to safely and efficiently provide optimal care to a very large population of cardiac surgical patients. He managed to overcome the objections of the laboratory medicine physicians to accomplish this. He also recognized the need for an intraoperative echocardiography service, which he established with a cardiologist. He then trained the remainder of the cardiac anesthesia staff, who became board certified in advanced intraoperative echocardiography.
We wanted to thank you for your consultation regarding a medical device company in which we are considering investing. Your evaluation of the clinical utility of the device was extremely helpful as was your analysis of the likelihood of market acceptance and estimation of market size. Of particular assistance was your identification and prioritization of specific surgery types in which the product would and would not be useful – and why.
