Dr. Goldenberg is a highly trusted colleague, effective psychiatrist, and respectful provider.  I have worked with him for a few years to date, in a variety of treatment settings including residential treatment, intensive outpatient and day treatment, and private practice outpatient settings.  I'm a psychologist that works with personality disorder and trauma, and I continue to refer clients to him due to the high quality of care he provides and expert consultation.  When Dr. Goldenberg takes a case, he engages in ongoing consultation with all treatment providers to ensure consistency, continuity of care, and overall highly effective treatment all around.  He never assumes authority over any other provider, and engages with each as colleagues supporting each other's work for the best outcome for a client.  As a colleague, he is an invaluable resource on every case he works on. All of my clients have reported very positive experiences and successful outcomes with their treatment with him.  They often report he is highly respectful of their needs and wishes, never pressures any client to take medication or engage in an intervention, and offers multiple options and perspectives on how to achieve their goals.  He is very kind and approachable, and clients report they trust him to work in their best interests and feel very safe in his care.   If you are a client or a referring provider, Dr. Goldenberg will certainly exceed your expectations and provide expert care and supportive treatment.

Dr. Goldenberg has been a pleasure to work with. As a psychologist in the field for 20 years, I've collaborated with many psychiatrists and many of those experiences have left much to be desired. It's so hard to find a psychiatrist who takes the time to really understand individuals for all of their complexities, rather than just focusing on "patient symptoms." Dr. Goldenberg has helped dozens of my clients gain clarity regarding their diagnosis and appropriate medications that will be effective, but non-addictive. His bed-side manners and overall approach to psychiatry are admirable. I would feel confident sending family members to him.

Dr. Goldenberg is my go-to psychiatrist for clients in my private practice. I have shared dozens of cases with Dr. Goldenberg and he is the most professional, compassionate, and trustworthy psychiatrist I have worked with, period. My clients report feeling understood and well taken care of by him, even some of my toughest cases. Needless to say, I highly recommend him.

I’m a psychologist in West LA who has collaborated with Dr. Goldenberg in successfully treating several patients from diverse backgrounds and with a wide variety of presenting issues. With every consultation, he has been accessible, intuitive, responsive, and a consummate professional who has been authentically invested in increasing the quality of our patients’ lives. Simply put, Dr. Goldenberg is my first choice in addiction psychiatry because he is effective in helping our shared patients achieve and maintain sobriety. Additionally, we have efficaciously treated individuals experiencing psychosis, suicidality, acute anxiety and depression, as well as a host of other presentations. I think of Dr. Goldenberg as a “Doctor’s doctor.” Aside from treating medical and other high-functioning professionals, he has provided highly rated continuing education for the Los Angeles County Psychological Association (LACPA) at our Annual Convention, of which I was the 2017 and 2018 Chair. I look forward to collaborating with Dr. Goldenberg far into the future.

As a registered dietitian nutritionist working in behavioral health, I have always struggled to find a psychiatrist who will collaborate with our clients who have addictions and eating disorders. Dr. Goldenberg is my guy! He works great with a team and is compassionate and caring. He is also interested in the latest research, which is critical to providing good care! I highly recommend!

I am a psychotherapist working in Santa Monica, and frequently have to refer patients for medication management. Dr. Goldenberg and I have collaborated on several cases over the past two years. He has been easy to work with, caring about our shared patients and seems to be very knowledgeable about medications and mental health in general. I would not hesitate to send my patients who need medication to him. As a therapist, I have worked with many psychiatrists and Dr. Goldenberg has been one of the best! If you are a patient looking for a new psychiatrist, I highly recommend Dr. Goldenberg.

I have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Goldenberg for the last year and he is one of the most collaborative psychiatrists I have ever worked with.  He spends a lot of time with clients in session and available for them when challenges come up. It is rare to find a psychiatrist that will answer questions and be apart of a team.  All of the clients that we have shared together have made a lot of progress because of his strong support and communication.  I am a therapist and coach and he is one of my first choices for a lot of my clients.

Dr G’s the best. He’s the first psychiatrist I’ve met that actually understood that, in my particular case, i was better off with less meds over time than with more. The guy is a gift.

Dr. Goldenberg is a very nice person, easy to talk to as well. I came to him freshly out of rehab. He doesn’t judge and is very knowledgeable about addiction which is nice. He has helped me regulate my meds and I feel he genuinely cares about his patients. I would definitely recommend him to others.
