Dr. Golonka is amazing. He is the reason we continue to go to Kids in the Sun. It is difficult to get an appointment because they only allow you to schedule same-day appointments on the day so you can't schedule anything ahead except routine care. The only way to really get a same-day appointment quickly is to use online and you have to do it first thing in the morning. If you try to call the office during business hours very rarely get to speak to a human Dr. Golonka is great, but scheduling with this practice needs improvements.
Most professional and caring physician. I always recommend Dr. Golonka to others.

My son and daughter both see him and I have nothing but good things to say. He is genuine and relatable. He never makes me feel like my questions are unwarranted or silly. He cares about my children and their well being. I would recommend him to anyone who asked! Great dr all around.
University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.
UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
