Very personable and thorough in communicating regarding my care.
I am thankful to *Dr. Goldberg for what he has done for me. It has been my dr. for 4 years. However, I feel he is a reserved person, no very communicative and always in a rush.
*Dr. Goldberg cares.
The entire experience was impressive.

Physician Bio

Dr. Goldberg was born and raised in San Diego, Calif. For college, he moved north to go to the University of California at Los Angeles, where he earned a BS in Biology in 1998. Dr. Goldberg then attended the Sackler School of Medicine at Tel Aviv University in Israel.

After four very exciting years in Tel Aviv, it was time to move close to home again. Dr. Goldberg completed his internship and residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles between 2003 and 2006.

At Cedars-Sinai, Dr. Goldberg realized his love for Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. Following his residency, he completed a fellowship at the University of California at Irvine/Veteran's Administration at Long Beach Medical Center in 2009. While at UC Irvine, Dr. Goldberg's research efforts focused on developing models to teach trainees advanced pulmonary procedures.

One such model's description and results were published in the medical literature. This model has been used worldwide to train physicians on a bronchoscopic procedure known as Transbronchial Needle Aspiration. With this model, the physicians are able to learn and become proficient at the procedure without placing patients at risk.

His interests include asthma, COPD, lung cancer, and sleep medicine, as well as the care of critically ill patients.

Additionally, Dr. Goldberg has an interest in less invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Dr. Goldberg has been developing a program called bronchial thermoplasty, which has brought Mission Hospital to the forefront of asthma treatment. He established the first bronchial thermoplasty program in Orange County and San Diego County. Bronchial thermoplasty is the first non-drug therapy for patients with severe, persistent asthma. Currently, Mission Hospital has the most active bronchial thermoplasty program in the area, and he is the only physician designated as a proctor, teaching the procedure to other phyisicians in Southern California.

Dr. Goldberg is board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine and Critical Care Medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

In his spare time, Dr. Goldberg enjoys spending time with his family, golfing and biking, as well as rooting for his UCLA Bruins.
