To the Goldman family as I do not get the newspaper I just found out today that "Doc" that's what I called him anyway had passed. My deepest condolences to your family of a very nice man and Doctor. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have my foot right now! I also used to go see him play the piano with his trio at the little place down the street from his Wound Care Practice. Quite the piano tickler he was and I must say I truly miss hearing his jazz...My thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Goldman clan..God Bless you Doc.....

My sincerest condolences to you and the rest of the family. Dan was truly one of a kind. He was real in everything he did. I will forever be grateful for the short time I knew him. What a great night the three of us had at Cafe Maxx during your recent trip to Florida. I can't help but remember how excited he was about buying a place in Florida and being able to spend time here. Again, my sincerest condolences to you and the rest of the family. He was truly a great person who will be missed.

All the best,

Steven Brooks

You are the best surgeon ever. When all other doctors gave up on me you didn't. Without you I probably wouldn't be here today. You will forever be deeply missed and loved.

It is with a profoundly heavy heart that I offer my deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences. I loved Danny very much. We would see each other whenever he came to Los Angeles and whenever I came to New York. We laughed a lot and enjoyed just being in each other's company. I will miss him terribly and I will keep his spirit alive in my heart and memory. A donation will be made to the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society in honor of my cherished cousin Danny Goldman. with love, cousin Richie

Debbie&Danny's Children,
You're so blessed to have had such a wonderful and caring person in your lives. Debbie, I'll never forget the evening that I met the two of you, back in the 80's, which was at my mother's Terrace Lounge. The two of you had come down to hear the jazz and Danny told me that he was a piano player. I asked him to sit in and that was it.WOW! Thanks to Steve Habib for inviting the two of you down. Wonderful memories are made of this. You're very blessed to have had him as a part of your lives and these are memories that you'll always have in your hearts to treasure. I thank God that our paths crossed.

Please accept my deepest sympathy on Dr. Goldman's passing. He was a wonderful and truly skilled doctor. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was always compassionate and kind. Twice he healed my husband's wounds. My husband always sang a little song when Dan came into the room "Here comes Dan, he's the Man." And he was!! He always made my husband feel better. Blessings and prayers to all the family.

Mt deepest sympathies for the family, friends and co-workers of Dr. Goldman. No doubt he will be missed by many but his work continues on through the Wound Care Center which he cared so much for. He was a gentle and kind soul with a great sense of humor. I learned many things from his skill and vast knowledge that helped shape my career. May he find eternal peace.
