Dr Goldman is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (FAAPM&R), and certified in Wound Care (CWS).

He has 10 years experience in forensic consultation. Services include (for plaintiff or defense) chart review, preparing reports, and testimony at deposition/trial.

Dr. Goldman is a nationally recognized authority in wound care with 20 years experience, including 8 years as Medical Director of a wound care center at an Ivy League setting. He has authored over 25 publications. He has also distinguished himself as a peer reviewer for leading wound care journals, and has over 20 presentations at national conferences in the past decade. This experience uniquely qualifies him to assess malpractice and abuse relative to standard-of-care for chronic wounds, pressure ulcers and amputations.

To forensic work he brings a understanding of rehabilitation standard of care. Functional loss underlies much complex wound litigation. Bringing clarity to these proceedings, he renders thorough, respected, well researched opinions. He excels under cross-examination. As a result, Dr Goldman helps resolve problematic cases.
