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.

I'm grateful Dr. Golden is always there when I need her. She has helped keep me active and healthy, as evidenced by my ability to bike the back roads of Switzerland at age 83 last Fall (see photo). She's the best!

from Sheila in NY February 16, 2024 for Flavia A. Golden, MD

Dr. Flavia Golden is always there for me. She is kind, caring and LISTENS! I never feel rushed in her office, my file on her desk is open and about 3 inches thick and she is taking notes as we speak, sometimes she goes back in those file to compare what we might be discussing. She has been the best inheritance of all time since she took over from my previous physician, Dr. George Gorham,… See more

from Helen in NY February 10, 2024 for Flavia A. Golden, MD

Two months ago I turned 84 and a year and a half ago I became a widow. With those daunting statistics onboard, I went in to see my wonderful internist, Dr Flavia Golden, who, after some standardized tests, told me that I haven’t told my body how old I am!! That wonderful message has carried me forward with energy and humor!

from Anne in CT January 25, 2024 for Flavia A. Golden, MD

I trust her knowledge and recommendations 100% and under her care I have enjoyed excellent health.

I am so blessed to be in the care of Dr. Flavia Golden and her team. I call them the ALWAYS THERE TEAM. When I have ANY ISSUE, they answer right away. Because of my work, I am a globe trotter.

I met Dr Flavia Golden when she was a resident at NYP/ Weill Cornell Division. I knew then that she is intelligent, compassionate, and really cares for her patients. That was a very long time ago. Until now she is still my most trusted doctor to take the best care of me physically, physiologically and mentally. I'm already 73 years old and Dr Golden is still keeping me very very well. I… See more

from Isabella in NY March 27, 2020 for Flavia A. Golden, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Golden for a little over 3 years...shortly after having recovered from a Meningitis that left me with a few issues in my immune system. I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding care, warmth and dedication she's been providing me all this time. She works hard and cares for her patients. She's an outstanding doctor and professional… See more

from Barbara in NY March 13, 2020 for Flavia A. Golden, MD

A little late for Dr.’s Day but I’ve been traveling. To me it was amusing that MDVIP was boasting about the added attention I’d get from my doctor because Dr. Golden gave me the same individual time and attention before she joined the organization. Then a couple of weeks ago another of my doctors detected an occasional arrhythmia and wanted me to see Dr. Golden right away (I live 2 1/2 hours… See more
