Specialties

Dr. Neil J Goldberg has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

  • Nuclear Cardiology

    Rooted in general cardiology, nuclear cardiologists specialize in a specific, non-invasive imaging technique that's used to diagnose heart disease, evaluate how well your heart is pumping blood, or determine the size and place of a past heart attack.
    They’re able to take pictures and video of your heart during stress tests, and in resting states, that allow them to diagnose patients as well as recommended treatments, medication and additional testing that might be needed. They often work closely with radiologists to assess the damage of a past heart attack or the patient's risk for future heart attacks.

Dr Goldberg is exceptional. He always remembers who I am and what my problems are. He has referred me to several specialists who are excellent but not as good as Dr Goldberg. His office staff is always cheerful and efficient. I am a nurse and have been in medicine for 40 years and have never met anyone who I more respect for than Dr. Goldberg.

I wore a heart monitor for 30 days and Dr Goldberg's office never got back to me with any results. I had to keep follow up to obtain my results. Waited 45 mins the 2nd appt. Just went to the ER with heart palpitations, etc, spent all day there and spent the night...called Dr Goldberg's office earlier in the day. Was told he'd be over to check on me. Never saw him.

Excellent Cariologist & Staff

I have been treated by Dr. Goldberg for 5 years. While he was at the AZ Heart Institute, he performed many heart procedures that saved my life. He has always been extremely informative and sensitive to my needs.His new location at the Scottsdale Healthcare is better than the AZ Heart Institute. I would recommend him and their affiliated hospitals without reservation. The previous reviews appear to be while he was at the AZ Heart Institute. It is a vastly different staff and service at the new Scottsdale location.

This Doctor's lack of care caused irreversable muscle damage in my father!!

Dr. Goldberg made my parents wait over 3 hours to see him on SEVERAL occasions, knowing they drove in from out of town to have his statin drug reviewed. On all three occasions, the office closed without him being seen. His staff was rude and aggressive, telling my Father "the doctor doesn't call patients" and refusing to reschedule him for the beginning of another day. My father never did get in to see Dr. Goldberg and now, after a year and a half on the same level of drug, his new cardiologist says he has suffered permanent muscle and memory loss!! Apparently, my Dad was placed on a dangerously high dose of the statin drug which should have been carefully monitored. We intend to file a complaint with the medical board - please DO NOT allow your loved ones to be hurt by this careless and arrogant doctor and his uncaring staff.
