Dr. Goldman has expanded her practice to include functional medicine. In brief, functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of illness. Treatment focuses on lifestyle changes (nutrition, movement, and stress) and may be supported with the use of supplements. Pharmaceuticals are only used after the holistic approaches have been fully investigated. Patients are much more satisfied with the profound long lasting results. Dr. Goldman is passionate about the functional medicine approach and is finally practicing the way she imagined when she entered medical school. All coursework that is required for certification with the Institute For Functional Medicine has been completed (anticipated 2018).
Dr. Goldman recognizes the limitations of any one modality of treatment and is open to alternative approaches. After practicing for several decades Dr. Goldman has expanded her perspective to include integrative and functional medicine in addition to advanced nutrient therapies. Diet, nutriceuticals, botanicals, medications, and a variety of psychotherapeutic treatments are among the tools Dr. Goldman uses (whether directly or through referrals). She is science based and has been to multiple advanced trainings to inform her treatment approaches. She welcomes collaboration with primary care physicians, specialists, psychotherapists, advanced practice nurses, naturopathic doctors, nutritionists and other healthcare clinicians.
