I could nothave expected or got more.
My son has flat feet. We saw two GP's and a podiatrist and everyone just said there is nothing that can be done. I wish we had seen Mr Goldberg sooner. At last we understand the issues and now we have a plan that we have confidence in.

Fast diagnosis, and same day treatment! Last time I sprained my ankle I was sent away for a scan to return a week later. Dr Goldberg saw me and arranged an MRI there and then and saw me back and told me I had also pulled off a piece of bone. I was out within 2 hours with a boot and a full plan. Wish all doctors could work like this.

I cannot fault the care I have received from Mr Goldberg. During the past twelve months, he has made me feel at ease each time I have met with him. He has answered my email queries promptly even when he has been on holiday or at a meeting abroad. I consider him almost a friend such is friendliness and professionalism even though there are many years between us. I cannot thank him enough for the new lease of life he has given me. I was always an athletic man who participated in every sport and almost overnight I was unable to carry out any of these activities. I now can walk 18 holes of golf without any discomfort at all although I am disappointed that my technique has not improved! Thank you, Mr Goldberg.

I have been under the care of Mr Goldberg for the past two years and underwent Achilles revision surgery fourteen months ago. After two previous operations with disappointing results, I was determined to find the best foot and ankle surgeon I could, and I am pleased to say the best I found! Unfortunately, non surgical treatments proved insufficient to ease my condition, but Mr Goldberg exhausted all options before considering surgical intervention. In addition to his surgical expertise and patience to explain everything in detail, what I admire most about Mr Goldberg is his continued aftercare and genuine interest in my recovery. I was determined to return to running and sport and enjoy my passion to the full. With Mr Goldberg’s help, what once seemed like a dream is now turning into a reality!

Very good at explaining the options and responding to my particular needs. A true consultant who tries to include the patient in the decision making.

Mr Goldberg is an excellent surgeon. He has performed an ankle replacement on one ankle and an ankle fusion on the other ankle. I have regained my mobility and am hugely indebted to him and his excellent team. He is definitely the best ankle surgeon in the UK.

A very friendly and caring doctor who is top of his game, what more can you ask for.
An extremely skillful and committed surgeon who engenders confidence that one is receiving the best and latest treatment. Also caring and considerate and keen to retain responsibility for longer term outcome.
MR GOLDBERG IS A BRILLIANT CONSULTANT WHO HAS HELPED ME ENORMOUSLY.

I WOULD LIKE TI THANK ALL THE STAFF THAT HAVE HELPED ME OVER THE LAST SIX MONTH.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU GOES OUT TO MR GOLDBERG WHO CORRECTED MY ANKLE AFTER A PREVIOUS CONSULTANTS BOTCHED WORK LEFT ME IN PAIN FOR FOUR YFARS ALLOWING ME TO WALK AGAIN PAIN FREE. HE IS A BRILLIANT PERSON AND MY ONE REGRET WAS NOT SEEING HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE.
In 2018, having developed arthritis in my right ankle and suddenly finding I could hardly walk, I made an appointment to see Mr Goldberg whose name as a leading expert on ankle surgery I had found on the internet. After a careful and thorough examination he ordered a scan which showed that I had end-stage arthritis in my ankle and that I had also ruptured the posterior tibial tendon which was why I was unable to walk.He said I would need an operation and that the ankle could either be fused or I could have a replacement joint and the tendon could be repaired or replaced. He also said that if I decided to have the joint replacement I would need two operations but that the fusion and tendon could be performed as one. He explained everything very clearly, he was very attentive and I knew immediately that I was going to be in the best possible hands. He arranged for me to be fitted with an orthopaedic boot and to come back and see him when we had had time to think about the options. Being so well-informed, it wasn’t difficult to make a decision. When I talked it over again with Mr Goldberg, he was very supportive and agreed it was the right one. He said I would be surprised at the amount of movement I would have with a fusion and now, just over a year since the operation I am absolutely delighted with the result. The operation itself was completely painless afterwards and although I was sent home with a supply of pain killers, I didn’t have to take any of them. He had performed some kind of miracle with the tendon and the fusion, I can walk normally on that foot now and there is hardly any sign of a scar. During the long recovery period he looked after me wonderfully and I always looked forward to my appointments with him. When chatting with his grateful patients in the waiting room, we all agreed he was an outstanding surgeon and we were extremely lucky to be under his care.

I ruptured my Achilles‘ tendon and sprained my ankle and went to see a specialist whose name I won’t mention and he put me in a plaster but I wanted a second opinion and found Dr Goldberg who I had read is one of the best doctors for Achilles problems. He was much more thorough and scanned my tendon to show one end of the tendon was stuck and not moving and he did surgery the next day and after 6 weeks had me back in the gym. I’m now 4 months from the injury and almost fully recovered with the neatest tiny scar. My physiotherapist said that is one of the quickest recoveries she has seen. I’m so glad I found Dr Goldberg. I felt extremely well looked after and I don’t think I could have anywhere near the result if I had not taken the second opinion. I thoroughly recommend him.
