I am so happy that we found Dr. Goldstein!! He is very knowledgeable and caring. Additionally, his office manager is wonderful too. Very personable and easy to work with.

On May 7th 2016, Dr. Goldstein saved my life. When no other Cardiologist Surgeon was available, Dr. Goldstein, after just coming home from an 11-hour surgery at 4am, turned back around to the hospital and completed my life saving emergency aorticA dissection surgery. At 47 years old, I can only humbly say thank you for allowing me to watch my kids grow up and have kids of their own. You are truly my hero. You are the very best!

Dr. Goldstein says...

I began my professional career as an aerospace engineer working on the Nasa Space Shuttle for Rockwell International after receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Brown University.    Several years later, I decided to apply this background to a career in medicine so that I could help people on a more personal and direct level.  I received my medical degree (M.D.) from Columbia University in New York City and my fellowship training in cardiothoracic surgery from Yale University.  My first job as a cardiothoracic surgeon was as a faculty member at The Ohio State University School of Medicine where I performed a wide variety of complex heart and lung surgeries including heart transplants and lung cancer procedures while teaching students, residents and fellows during their training.  I moved to Arizona in 2002 to be closer to my large extended family.  I have given talks on a wide variety of cardiothoracic surgery topics to patient groups and professional societies based on my experiences and research over the years.  I like to stay current with new technologies when I believe they are safe and offer clear advantages to patients.  To that end, I have performed more robotic thoracic surgeries than any other cardiothoracic surgeon in Phoenix because I believe the patient benefits are significant.
