About Dr. Goldin

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 electrodiagnostic and musculoskeletal ultrasound. He can use these when appropriate in order to make a diagnosis and determine appropriate treatment.

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.
