  • About

    Physician Bio

    Dr. Goldin is a fellowship-trained physiatrist who specializes in the diagnosis
    and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions in variety of patients. He
    believes that the key to the successful evaluation and management of every
    patient is to perform a thorough history and physical examination. After
    reviewing his findings and treatment options, he and his patients make
    a mutual decision on how to proceed. Treatment typically includes the
    correction of biomechanical deficits through detailed and focused physical
    therapy, possible short courses of pain medications, and various types
    of injection procedures. He performs traditional injections that historically
    have involved steroids to help with inflammation, and also has an interest
    in more novel growth factor injections that use the body’s own growth
    factors to help heal various injuries. In addition, Dr. Goldin is trained
    in electrodiagnostics and musculoskeletal ultrasound. He can use these
    when appropriate in order to make a diagnosis and determine appropriate

    Dr. Goldin earned his medical degree at Virginia Commonwealth University
    in Richmond, Virginia and went on to do his internship at Tucson Hospital
    Medical Education Program in Arizona. During his physiatry residency at
    Stanford, he found that his main interests were in understanding functional
    anatomy and applying this knowledge to help all patients maximize their
    function. During his senior year, he ran a free musculoskeletal clinic
    for the uninsured patients in the area. Here he was able to teach junior
    residents and medical students and to treat a population that required
    this kind of care. Dr. Goldin’s residency honors include the top
    score on the annual self-assessment exam during his third year and the
    top score on the electrodiagnostics examination in his final year. His
    article, “Tendinopathy: A Review of the Pathophysiology and Evidence
    for Treatment”, is about the treatment of a variety of tendon problems, and it appeared in
    The Physician and Sports Medicine in September, 2013.

    Dr. Goldin has played several sports throughout his life, including tennis,
    soccer, basketball, skiing, and boxing, to name a few. When not at work,
    he enjoys spending time with his family and friends.
