Dr. Goldberg and her staff DO NOT function well in a crisis. If you struggle with hair loss, especially CCCA, she's great for an initial diagnosis. However, I would not recommend her for long-term care. I'm surprised she hasn't had any malpractice charges brought against her. Do yourself a favor and find someone else.

Terrible experience! I saw Dr. Goldberg hoping she would help provide treatment options for my hair loss after having been diagnosed with Alopecia Areata by my previous dermatologist. I was told by Dr. Goldberg that maybe my hair wasn't as full as before but that many people would love to have the amount of hair I had. To my horror, she went on to say that instead i should focus on clearing the marks on my face (acne hyperpigmentation). I have never felt so hurt and disrespected by a doctor.

We brought our 13 year old son to discuss early onset alopecia. We were very concerned because of possible psychological morbidity in the future. She said he had androgenic alopecia and asked if it bothered him. When he said no, she wanted to know which parent it bothered. . She basically downplayed it and was very short and dismissive with her responses. She is better suited to working in research behind a bench rather than in front of patients.

Dr. Goldberg is highly experienced with hair loss. She will be honest with you and look at your follicles and will tell you what is clinically proven for treatment options. She makes you feel like you will be okay! Brought a huge list of questions and she was reading off my list before I even got to them! Go see her if you have any concerns about hairloss even if you received other Derms diagnosis! She is worth it!!

I saw several MDs before Dr. Goldberg who had no idea why I was losing my hair and eyebrows. I was so afraid that she would say the same thing and nothing could be done. She was very reassuring and her treatment has helped enormously. Even though I had complained to other MDs that I was tired all the time, she was the only one who noticed that my iron levels were a bit low and I should take a supplement. I feel much, much better. She is brilliant.

She is the only one to take her time to answer all of my questions, and do a biopsy of my skull, and be honest about options. Yes, she can come off rude but still had the most knowledge from the other 4-5 dermatologists I met with.
