Primary care physician Dr. Martin Golding joins Atracare Urgent Care

May 16, 2023

Atracare Urgent Care, a leading medical facility in southern Delaware, is now offering primary care services to its patients.

Primary care physician Dr. Martin Golding will be joining Atracare in Ocean View.

With this expansion, Atracare will be able to provide a more comprehensive range of medical services to its patients under one roof.

Golding attended the University of Miami School of Medicine, and completed his internal medicine training at Brown University and his gastroenterology fellowship at Emory University. He is board certified in both internal medicine and gastroenterology, and is a fellow of the American College of Internal Medicine and the American College of Gastroenterology. Golding was a practicing internist and gastroenterologist for 25 years in Maryland in addition to being appointed to the medical school faculty at the George Washington School of Medicine for several years.

His practice primarily consisted of seeing patients with a wide variety of gastroenterology disorders including gastroesophageal reflux disease, peptic ulcers disease, malabsorption disorders, inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome, and disorders of the liver and pancreas. He also provided primary care for patients with a broad variety of general medical conditions including diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.

In 2011, Golding left his medical practice to join the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Devices and Radiological Health. He was chief clinical officer for the gastroenterology and endoscopy devices branch, which primarily consisted of evaluating subject safety in clinical trials related to gastroenterology and endoscopy devices.

During his 11-year tenure at the FDA, Golding continued providing services as a physician volunteer at two clinics, working mostly with indigent patients as both an internist and gastroenterology consultant.

Golding found this work very enjoyable and gratifying, which led to his decision to leave the FDA and return to the practice of clinical medicine. Golding and his wife Sharon moved to Lewes in May 2022 to search for a position as a primary care physician. Golding said he is elated about starting work at the Atracare Center in Ocean View within a few weeks.
