His medical career continues to thrive as well. “Early on, I recognized that medicine was changing and that the solo medical practice was starting to die,” Goldberg explains. “Luckily, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with so many great people in my field, and through that and partnering with other great dermatologists and physicians, I have been able to open and run three dermatology offices in New York City and New Jersey.”

Additionally, his fourth office—Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center—opened a few years ago in Boca Raton, Florida, as part of a collaboration with his friend, Jason Pozner, MD, a plastic surgeon. Goldberg’s love of travel, which inspired him to get his medical license in several states, including Florida, found him always eager to experience a new place. “Pozner said, ‘Just come down here and see if you like it,’ ” Goldberg remembers. “When I did, I started going back every other month, and soon our name was getting known well enough that he and I opened a space next door to his plastic surgery office. We’ve really worked to build this combination cosmetic surgery-dermatology practice together.”

Goldberg also plans to take this plastic surgery-dermatology model to Boston, where he’ll partner with another area plastic surgeon.

He sees the crossover of cosmetic dermatology and cosmetic and plastic surgery as a growing part of aesthetic medicine, saying, “They overlap more and more not only intellectually, but also economically. And I also find the opportunity to work with my peers in this way quite fun.”

Additionally, Goldberg sees the continued growth of noninvasive procedures in the industry and people seeking age management treatments at a younger age. “It’s a way to help people feel better and live healthier,” he explains.
