Biography


Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg is Professor and Chair of Ophthalmology at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford University. His clinical effort is focused on patients in need of medical or surgical intervention for glaucoma and other retinal and optic nerve diseases, as well as cataract. His research is directed at neuroprotection and regeneration of retinal ganglion cells and the optic nerve, a major unmet need in glaucoma and other optic neuropathies, and his laboratory is developing novel stem cell and nanotherapeutics approaches for eye repair.

Dr. Goldberg received his B.S. magna cum laude from Yale University, and his M.D. and Ph.D. from Stanford University where he made significant discoveries about the failure of optic nerve regeneration. He did his clinical training in ophthalmology and then in glaucoma at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, and was awarded a fellowship from the Heed Foundation. He was named the 2010 Scientist of the Year by the Hope For Vision foundation, and received the Cogan award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology in 2012. He was elected in 2010 to the American Society of Clinical Investigation, an honorary society of physician scientists. He directs an NIH-funded research laboratory and has developed significant expertise with implementing FDA IND clinical trials for optic nerve neuroprotection and regeneration. His goal is to translate scientific discoveries to patient therapies.

The very best in his field!
I have high regards for my doctor , and wish that occasionally we spend more time looking on a bigger picture of my condition, discussed the overall Developnent of my desease just to be better informed and maybe reassured. it's a very lonely place to deal with the progression of the glaucoma on my own. .there is no family or a friend that can accomplish this with me, just my doctor. I like him a great deal, trust his expreptise, just once in a while I want to have an overview consult and feeling rushed.

Dr. Goldberg seems to be an expert in the field of Glaucoma. When he finally showed up, he didn't rush me or talked down to me. He was patience and listened to my concerns. However, he didn't seem to want to take me on as a patient. He did not explicitly say no, but did not suggest that I should transfer care to him.
Great experience - Highly recommend Dr. Goldberg to others.
