Specialties

Dr. Rina F Goldberg has the following 5 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Great doctor

My child has been seeing Dr. Goldberg for about 5 years. In all that time, she has always been terrific - caring, compassionate, smart and accessible. She is highly professional and very knowledgeable. I find that she spends more time with us than most other doctors do. She never makes us feel like she is rushing off to the next patient. Dr. Goldberg asks good questions and actually listens to the answers - she is not just busy writing notes like some doctors are. She has a gentle bedside manner which makes kids (and adults) feel comfortable with her and confident that she is giving the best care possible. Also, whenever we have needed referrals, they have always been spot-on. I have recommended Dr. Goldberg to friends and they have also had positive experiences, too.

And she was so happy to see him doing so well .she said he's a miracle .she gave us results from his test that he took that day and was trying to push his MRI results before we left .but surely her staff called us the next morning with the results . we have two people to thank God and Dr. Goldberg for saving our son.

I was very impressed. We did not have to wait too long - actually it was less time than it took me to fill out the questionnaire for a first visit. Dr Goldberg was very nice - she has a great manner both with me and my 15 year old son who was the patient. She is easy to talk to and gave us enough time to ask questions. I would recommend her highly.

Great Diagnostician-A Pleasure to work with

My son has epilepsy and has seen Dr. Goldberg for 5 years. She is extremely smart without a trace of arrogance; experienced; part of a nationally acclaimed team; sweet, easy going...I can't say enough great things about her. She has been like an oasis in a pretty scary desert. My teenage son will listen to anything she says. She never talks down to parents or kids. I literally trust her with my son's life. LOVE THIS WOMAN. A godsend.
