Flavia A. Golden, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

"..For the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient.” – Francis W. Peabody, MD, 1927

With over two decades experience practicing internal medicine on Manhattan's Upper East Side, I have learned something simple - the better I know you, the better I am able to advise you and deliver optimal care tailored to your needs. In these hectic times, one of the most valuable resources I have as a physician remains the time I can spend with you. It is my privilege to know each of my patients personally. In my office, you will be cared for as if you were a member of my family.

My style is direct and warm, and my approach is comprehensive and holistic. In addition to managing illness, I have a strong personal interest in wellness care, integrative practices and proactive, preventive medicine that is designed to keep you at your healthiest.
