Dr. Goldberg is a capable and smart physician. Problem is, she is rigid, certain about what she knows, and not particularly interested in learning about what she does not yet know. I waited months for an appointment with her, then found to my dismay she was only willing to prescribe heavy antibiotics and drugs for my medical conditions - even when there was plenty of medical evidence that the drugs had already caused toxic side effects in my immune system. She was not interested in hearing about that, saying she prescribed the drugs routinely, to many patients, with no problem. She had no alternative or milder treatments to offer for my chronic - but not life threatening - conditions. I have managed to cure myself, since that visit, largely through simple herbal remedies and lotions that she should have known about, and which I found out about by reading other people's advice and suggestions on the internet! Dr. Goldberg would have had me on toxic drugs for several months instead, with immune-compromising side-effects. When a doctor's mind is closed to anecdotal evidence, and the person quick to prescribe immune-compromising drugs and antibiotics, it violates the basic Hippocratic injunction to "first do no harm".
