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)

goldberg-testimonial-3-15Dear Dr. Goldberg,

Thank you so much for the emergency back surgery you did on me in October 2014. Dr. Banzon took care of my left shoulder 20 years ago. I came back to him, sent me for an MRI, told me he doesn’t do that type of surgery anymore and referred me to you. You did an EXCELLENT job on me and I am very lucky I had no pain and got moving quickly with great improvement in my left leg and foot. Physical Therapy (Charles) was great. You are a wonderful Doctor and person. All the nurses at CentraState love you and respect you.

Thank you again,

Patricia D.

Ainslie Brown

ainsley-goldbergThis accomplished equestrian breeds, rides, and competes with her horses.  One day in June she was riding when her horse became startled, bucked, and sent Ainslie into the air.  Ainslie was in incredible pain.  She could not walk or stand.  Arriving at the hospital, Ainslie met Dr. Grigory Goldberg, her back was broken in several places, there was concern she would never walk again.  The severe pain ended with the surgery Dr. Goldberg performed.  Ainslie was sitting in a chair the 2nd day after surgery and was walking the 3rd day.

“I had to lie flat in bed for 5 days before the surgery could be done.  They were the most horrible days of my life.  Dr. Goldberg saved my life.  I believe without him I wouldn’t ever get back to showing and riding my horses again.  My horses are my life!”
