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
