It's important for Dr. Richard Goldenberg to cultivate relationships with his patients, as he feels this facilitates good decision-making. He takes the time to explain complex medical issues in a way that patients can understand.
Dr. Goldenberg believes that more care is not always better care. "My role is to coach patients in the prudent use of medical resources in an increasingly complex medical world and act as their advocate," he says.
After receiving his medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine in Massachusetts, he completed an internship and residency at Boston VA Medical Center.
In his free time, Dr. Goldenberg enjoys hiking, reading and all things French.
