Specialties

Dr. Joel S Goldberg has the following 3 specialties

  • Hospice & Palliative Medicine
  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

One of the best doctors I have had in the VA system.

Dr. Goldberg has taken good care of me in treating my chronic pain. I find him caring and with a great sense of humor. He is knowledgeable and skillful. The epidural injections he has given me have been really helpful, and I feel truly fortunate to have him on my team of healthcare providers.
