DR. GRIGORY GOLDBERG TESTIMONIALS


Dr. Goldberg became my spine surgeon put ely by luck. I was taken to the emergency room and he must’ve drawn the short straw. Boy was I lucky. This man is amazing. The staff runs the shop in an orderly and time sensitive manner. Dr. Goldberg was assigned my case when I had no use of my arms andlegs. He told me what I needed to do and explained before the surgery. He has operated on my spine 3 times. He has hands of gold and an easy way about him. I walked 2 miles this morning. Thank you doc!

Dr. Goldberg is an excellent surgeon. After being admitted to the hospital for an infection and abscess in my spine, Dr. Goldberg was assigned my case. His knowledge, composure and confidence let me know I was in the right hands. He performed spinal fusion from C5 to C7 while removing the abscess and damaged vertebrae without any issue. It has been more than 6 months and I feel great. I really can’t thank Dr. Goldberg and his team enough. (Mark Pizzariello | Oct 2018 | Healthgrades)

I was very pleased with my visit. Dr. Goldberg was terrifically honest and I so appreciate hearing the truth. He’s the first doctor who evaluated and made his diagnosis. Thank you for your honesty. It’s rare that a doctor honestly talks and explains why. (Peggy Wall | 2018 | Google)

To. Dr. Goldberg, Dr. Goldberger, and the entire staff at Advanced Orthopedics,

Thank You all for takingcare of my mother. It is truly humbling to see such great compassion and skill used to relieve the suffering of someone you love. This is care that I do not believe she could have received anywhere else. Your whole operation gives me pause to think about how I can be a better person.

I am grateful beyond words that you were willing to take this case. She is already moving around and I am confident that this surgery will dramatically improve the quality of her life and make the time that we spent together happier and more meaningful.
