About Dr. Goldberg

Philosophy of care

I work in tandem with you to solve your present spine pain symptoms and to create strategies to prevent future pain and injury. I also develop efficient treatment plans to help you quickly navigate the health care system in order achieve your functional goals related to work, sports and daily activities.

I like to offer you a full array of non-surgical treatment options including traditional and alternative medicine while also providing direction when surgical referral is needed. And I work with other members of the health care team – including other physicians and physical therapists – to bolster a multi-disciplinary spine approach.

Why I entered medicine

I embrace the challenging, ever-changing aspects of modern medicine. I enjoy being a constant learner of science and technology and imparting this knowledge to my patients to help them solve their problems and limitations. I also cherish the uniqueness of the trusted doctor-patient relationship.

Community involvement

I am a youth baseball coach for South Parkland and volunteer at many school programs and events. I also have served on the boards of the JCC and religious institutions.

Personal interests

I enjoy playing baseball with my two sons and playing basketball with my daughter. As a family, my wife and I love taking time to travel with our kids. I also enjoy reading and spending time outdoors.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
