WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF? Life is a marathon, not a road race. Try not to do too much too quickly, and try to stop and smell the roses as often as possible. Always treat everyone with kindness, and continue to show them compassion as you always felt you would when you got into medicine.

WHAT'S THE BEST DISH TO BRING TO A COOKOUT? Knowing that someone will be bringing the big cheeseburgers, I would probably add a healthy salad to the mix — one that includes mixed greens, broccoli sprouts, zucchini, carrots, orange and yellow peppers, and other crunchy vegetables. I have tried to become a little healthier with my eating habits through the years, but a nice bottle of red wine would be in my other hand.

WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO SPEND A WEEKEND? I really enjoy spending time around the house and with my family. We get outside a good bit and love to play golf together. My kids even have my wife caddying for them in local tournaments, which is always fun to watch.

VOTED BEST EMERGENCY MEDICINE DOCTOR

Jay D. Goldstein, MD Georgia Emergency Physician Specialists 216

SAVANNAHMAGAZINE.COM

WHAT'S THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB? Emergency medicine is the best field and specialty for me. I love the quickcare aspect and seeing the rapid improvement in my patients. The fast pace keeps the job interesting, and I really enjoy treating varying illnesses across all age spectrums. On top of all that, I love making people feel comfortable during a time of acute need.

WHAT’S THE BEST ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF? Pretty straightforward — work hard, dream big, and always follow the golden rule.

WHAT’S THE BEST DISH TO BRING TO A COOKOUT? Ice-cold sliced watermelon and a case of Dr. Robot Sour Ale (does that count as a dish?).

WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF? The same advice I would give my current self: Work hard, but also try to relax and enjoy the ride. Don’t be so focused on the destination, otherwise you’ll miss the important things along the way. Easier said than done, but it’s something I’m now trying to be more cognizant of.

WHAT'S THE BEST DISH TO BRING TO A COOKOUT? I’m into having a variety of side dishes at a barbecue, and I’m kind of a traditionalist, so I would say something like baked beans, honey cornbread, or spicy coleslaw. Also, it goes without saying, but beer is a necessity.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO SPEND A WEEKEND? I prefer a chill-mode weekend over a busy one. To me, nothing is more perfect than hanging out with my wife Elyssa, daughter Sydney, son Matthew, and mini Labradoodle Sonny on our boat out on the beautiful waterways around Savannah.

WHAT’S THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB? As a plastic surgeon, I love being able to connect with my patients on an emotional level and be able to witness changes in their emotional well-being when I am able to improve something physical with reconstructive or cosmetic procedures. While medicine as a career has certainly changed over the years, I still truly feel blessed to be able to do this job.
