Dr. Goldberg Is Understanding of Back and Hip Issues
“ Dr. Goldberg has been an excellent physician to me in the past 6 months.  He has always been patient and understanding with my back and hip issues. I would definitely recommend him to any of my family and friends.  I am most appreciative of all the help he has given me and I wish him all the success in the future. ”
Thanks for the fantastic treatment
“ I am a very satisfied patient of Coordinated Health, and just want to say Thank You. I have recently relocated here from Arizona and was looking for orthopedic help. I did not know who to choose or even where to begin so I chose at random. I chose OAA that was the biggest mistake of my life. The people there were rude , did not return phone calls and would not help me in an emergency. On a recent trip back to Arizona I decided to go back to the group I had used out there. They told me I needed a bilateral hip replacement and I would be better off getting it in Pa. I got on the internet and did some research on top hip replacement surgeons and found Dr. Scarpino.I did not have to wait forever for an appointment and he took care of matters immediately when I did see him. I was treated like royalty. Since then I have had to use the pt services along with the services of Dr. Goldberg. No matter whom I see at Coordinated Health I am treated with respect. The staff is very friendly in every way. I cannot begin to express how pleased I am with all of Coordinated Health and I fell that Coordinated Health needs to hear praise when praise is due. Thank You for all your timeJean Stalowski ”

Relief of Pain
“ I have to put a shout out to Dr. Goldberg. He suggested Trigger Point Injections for my pain in my shoulders and back because the acupuncture isn't paid for through my insurance but the injections are. I have to say they work. It is a miracle that I can actually lift up my arm, pick things up and basically move my arm without pain. What a difference it makes waking up with NO PAIN. Dr. Goldberg has been so wonderful also with getting me in basically the same day because of the pain that I have been having. I also like the fact that I don't have to take another medication because of the pain. I believe in trying other avenues instead of always taking medicine and this sure does help me ALOT. Thank you Dr. Goldberg. ”

Great Experience!
“ By far the best experience I've had with any hospital/doctor office. Always calls you back within 5 minutes of checking in and responds to messages within minutes. He is very understanding and professional and I highly recommend ”

I can wake up happy again
“ When I met with Dr. Goldberg regarding my back, I was barely able to function. I had 4 herniated discs and was unable to go down the steps in my house with out 45 mins of pacing first to loosen up my hip and legs. I was unable to sit for more than a few mins without pain and literally had to crawl around my house at times because transition to standing was too painful to make it worth the effort. He was able to administer treatment that allowed me to wake up the next day and move forward with normal function. After only 3 PT sessions I was back to the way I was before the pain started at all. I am now 3 months post treatment and my life continues to improve as I am running (I had pretty much given up hope I would ever run again) and riding again, building milage every week. Thank you for giving me my active life back. ”

Coordinated Health. Better. Together.
“ The slogan is Coordinated Health. Better. Together. I think this is an appropriate slogan for me as well. I have been a patient at Coordinated Health for many ailments including Achilles’ tendon issues, tarsal tunnel syndrome, torn meniscus, partially torn ACL, and Morton’s neuroma. The first person I encountered at Coordinated Health was Dr. Brigido. When I saw Dr. Brigido for my neuroma issue I told him about no feeling in my foot. He referred me to Dr. Goldberg for acupuncture and Dr. Duffy for Grafton massage. With these doctors I gained the feeling back in my foot. Dr. Goldberg explained acupuncture and what he would be doing. It didn’t hurt and I felt more feeling in my foot after a couple treatments. Dr. Duffy did Graston massage and removed scar tissue as well as keeping me balanced. He looked at me as a whole person and not just a left foot. Unfortunately, as I was getting treated for that I partially tore my ACL. The great news is that I had acupuncture a few days later and it prevented pain from the ACL issue. Dr. Slenker, the orthopedist who treated me for the ACL, sent me for physical therapy. I have been rehabbing and have avoided surgery. Physical therapy is hard work. I had the team of Katie Pritchard and Deb. Together they helped me strengthen my muscles. They were very patient and kind while teaching me new exercises and doing Graston massage on my tight IT bands. I never knew Graston massage was part of the PT but it is makes such a great difference in loosening tightness and breaking up scar tissue. I’m happy to say I have my last day of PT today. As the slogan goes, Coordinated Health. Better. Together. Thanks for all you all have done! I feel stronger and confident I will stay healthy. If not, I will definitely be back because you have a true team that works together to make me better.Diane DeVivo ”
