Dr. Alexander Goldberg has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Office hours are not for working people. Very difficult to schedule an appointment â the phone is always busy or on hold for 15 min Waiting time is 30-40 min, while there is no line in the waiting area Doctor lets his PA to see patients while he is out of office! Take lots of calls to get lab results â no one is calling back ever DO NOT RECOMMEND!
I thought Dr Goldberg cared for my son but i know now the only reason he had him for a patient was for the CASH my hard working son PAID him. He passed every urine test he took . He was called in for a special urine test and he had trouble peeing. after 45 minutes they said they had no more time and dismissed him from the program and replaced him . I would think after 4 years he would wean him off the drugs. NO WAY he pays CASH. How does a Dr just throw out a patient after hooking him on percribed drugs. He does not care and this is proof!!!
I cannot and do not recommend this doctor and cannot state my feelings strongly enough. My husband & I visited Dr. Goldberg for the 1st time for a complete physical after undergoing our last fertility treatment (an unsuccessful IVF cycle). When we discussed our desire to have a child, he suggested we could take his teenage daughter. At the time we tried to laugh it off, chalking it up to just another insensitive comment by another "well-meaning" person. The 2nd time my husband saw the dr, the subject of having children was again discussed. We are in the process of adopting and had appointments to see Dr. Goldberg the following week for a complete physical as part of the paperwork. Again Dr. Goldberg made a comment to my husband that was inappropriate, insensitive and inexcusable. He told my husband that we didn't need a child and we would be happier without one. He also said that just b/c everyone else has kids, doesn't mean we have to. My husband didn't know what to say but again told the dr of our desire to have a family together. At the conclusion of the exam, the dr told my husband to "remember his advice." When my husband asked which advice, the dr said - "You don't need to have a child. You'll be happier if you don't." We have been struggling with infertility for 6 years. Our desire to have a child doesn't have anything to do with anyone else but us and our desire to share our life with a child and build a family. Perhaps someone who hasn't gone through what we have couldn't understand our mindset/feelings. At the very least, I expect my doctor to be aware of his audience when making comments/giving advice. We have cancelled our upcoming physicals and I left a message explaining why and telling them that we would not return to the office.
