Dr Goldberg performed surgery on myself at age six for leg perthes. I had seen multiple surgeons and the only other option at the time was a long term brace. The new method he advocated allowed myself to heal and lead a normal athletic life! Now at age 45 I am so thankful my mother dragged me to boston for that consult!

Dr. Goldberg's wise, caring and comprehensive care for our daughter's health and well-being is such a gift to our family. In fact, since our first meeting, Dr. Goldberg welcomed us to the skeletal dysplasia clinic and made us feel like his family--making sure Mimi was signed up for camp, introducing us to so many supportive people and always being so focused on what is best for her well-being. While it was a commitment to chose a doctor located three hours away, Dr. Goldberg and the skeletal dysplasia team are the best and we are grateful for their fine service.
