Dr. Goldberger is by far an expert in his field and keeps up with the latest treatments. I have been seeing him for chronic pain after multiple injuries and surgeries for over 10 years. He he saved my life when I was in such horrible pain that it was impossible for me to do daily tasks such as taking a shower and washing my hair, getting dressed, brushing my teeth , and other things that are necessary. He went above and beyond to find different effective ways to treat my pain and my brain! And he is always totally present when he’s with me. He’s a genuinely a kind human being in addition to being an A+++ doctor. I never feel rushed, and I always understand exactly what the plan is. He knows what he’s doing x10, however, he is always open to new ideas and suggestions. He’s such a great guy and so smart, I respect him totally. I would definitely recommend him to anybody suffering from chronic pain or any pain related disorder. He is the best!

Dr Goldberger helped me find a way to beat my pain by thinking outside the box. He was compassionate which helped make the difference. The big name specialists with large practices that I saw in Charlotte were useless and never made the correct diagnosis.

I was impressed with his Polite, Professional manner from our first visit. His genuine concern & skill in treating muscle & tendon pain areas as well as primary joint pain were on a higher level than I have previously experienced. The treatments that he has recommended & performed without lengthy delays have been very effective. He’s a good listener & explains options & recommended procedures thoroughly in detail. Dr. Goldberger’s good manners & calm professionalism are greatly appreciated. He is personable & friendly in a way that helps to ease fears that pain may accompany procedures. I wish there were more doctors like him.

I visited two other pain management doctors in Charlotte before going to Dr Goldberger who was the only one that diagnosed my pain issues properly as well as treating them the right way. His PA Mary is the BEST!!Won`t go anywhere else and HIGHLY RECOMEND that you don`t either.

Dr. Goldberger is an excellent doctor. He takes the time to listen and explains everything in detail. I never feel rushed during my appointment. I find Dr. Goldberger to be a very smart, kind and compassionate doctor. I highly recommend him to anyone who has legitimate pain issues. If you're looking for a doctor who just hands you an Rx for what you want and doesn't care then this is NOT the place for you.

First meeting was very hopeful. I thought I had found a Dr. That. Really cared. Goal reduce meds oxycontin to a minimal amount and help me with my chronic in lower back causing severe sciatic pain. 120mg to 90 first visit. Great. Then 90 to 60mg without me knowing. Saw him one time then saw Jennifer 3 times over 6 months. Horrible experience. Cuts meds so fast and horrible withdrawals. No patient concern. A nightmare. Avoid. Go anywhere and avoid Dr Goldberg. Worse experience ever.

I've been going to Dr Goldberger for a very long time. He is the best Dr I have ever had in any field of medicine, he has always took his time to listen to what you need and help you in the best way he can. I will never go to another Dr as long as he's here and if he moves I'm going to follow him. His staff ate great to, they are always very nice and accommodating and help you with anything. The office staff are great to very polite and they always do there best to get you checked in and out.

Dr. Goldberger is one of the best dr's I have had in pain medicine and more. I have chronic pain from a bad car accident and he been treating me for over 3 ½ years. He doesn't just throw Rx's at me like my prior dr. He takes the time to diagnose each problem and treat it as needed. He has also referred me to a different dr. for a problem causing pain that needed surgery out of his field to fix. He is caring and has a great moral compass. I walk unassisted today because of Dr. Goldberger. Thanks

I had relocated from a state where I had excellent,caring drs. Enter Dr G. Horrible. My mom says he is called a pain Dr to help u get out of pain but he just keeps u in it. They schedule appts every 15 minutes. Average wait to see DR is 2-3 hrs or more. Of all the pain care I've had , his has been worst. My quality of life went down. I can't work at all. And he just plain doesn't care. He has his $$. AND 4 Med Board Actions since 2011. It's certainly not from over prescribing. And in 3 states !

Diagnosis after 26ft fall: inflamation w/ 2 MRI's showing life threatening injuries.Was rude, spoke over me, acted as he didn't hear what I said (3 different witnesses) Actual problems: 2 broken vertebraes (L2, L1), multiple bulging discs in neck, fibromyalgia, arthritis, ligament laxity disorder, shattered S.I joints, broken pelvis, & 2 with torn meniscuses. New Dr was livid bc the correct procedures had not been done. I'm 27 & have had 7 surgeries & 3 more to go bc of Goldberger's negligance
