Dr. Carl S Goldstein has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Awesome Doctor!

My grandmother has kidney disease, along with pancreatic cancer (please pray for her). Dr. Goldstein is the best of the best. I really mean it. He is the most intelligent, well-prepared doctor you can find. He will remember lab results/facts that neither my grandmother nor myself can. He is a truly patient-focused physician. I cannot say enough about this wonderful doctor; he, along with his expertise, constitute a huge gift to society! Keep it going, Dr. Goldstein!

Great Doctor

I was referred to Dr. Goldstein for issues with hypertension and edema during my pregnancy. I have to say that he has been the most reassuring member of my healthcare team during a potentially risky pregnancy. I was so much more at ease knowing that Dr Goldstein has overseen my blood pressure during my pregnancy. I am now due in 2 days and the doctor has even promised to be in touch during my labor and delivery and even to pay a visit to the hospital to make sure that everything runs smoothly. I can't say enough about the professionalism and quality of care I've received from Dr Goldstein. He's the BEST!!!!!!!

I have never had a desire to write a review for a Dr until now. I brought my Mom to see him because a CT Scan showed kidney issues. He explained clearly what the issue was and went above and beyond to listen (and really listened! ) to other issues that she was having for 6 mos and it running tests to determine the causes of these issues. He put my mind and my Mothers mind at ease. We felt like he really cared to find out what was going on. Mom felt very validated by Dr Goldstien. His staff is wonderful as well ! I cannot say enough about how wonderful he is and he is definetly worth waiting for. He spends alot of time with all his patients!
