I was terrified to have the bone marrow biopsy procedure, but thanks to the special needle that Dr. Goldenberg invented, and his incredibly experienced nurse Priscilla, it was less painful than going to the dentist!
You are not just a medical chart to Dr. Goldenberg; you are a real person with real concerns. And now, 18 months later, I am celebrating One Year Cancer Free!
What I realized by having the good fortune to find Dr. Goldenberg, is that the scary things on the internet about having a bone marrow biopsy are not true.
My time with Dr. Goldenberg has made me realize how strong a person I am. I put my life in his talented care, and in order to survive I learned to overcome my fear and look for the positive. Now that I am healthy, I share with my own patients the encouragement that he gave to me to get up and walk, and to make movement one of the keys to reclaiming health.
If not for Dr. Karen Haglof, I may not be doing so well right now. I am a very lucky person.
It is New York and there are plenty of good doctors. The trick is to find one who is an excellent doctor and a good person, and Dr. Goldenberg was that fit for me.
One of the best calls I made this year was to Dr. Goldenberg, on the one year anniversary of the date of my diagnosis. Out of the woods medically, thanks to an unrelated donor in Germany, I've now in a new role as a cancer patient advocate to increase awareness for the need of participation in the bone marrow registry. Thanks to Dr. Goldenberg's uniquely compassionate care, I am able to experience this past year as a gift in disguise.
Dr. Haglof is one of my favorite people on the planet and I would tell everyone about her. I am back to work and in remission. I can’t possibly repay her, but if I could find a way to repay Dr. Haglof, well..I’d never do anything else with my life!
Dr. Goldenberg and his first-rate staff at Manhattan Hematology Oncology Associates have brilliantly and compassionately helped me navigate the trail to recovery.
I often think of how lucky I was to have chosen a physician that I was able to trust 100% as my advocate.
The Cancer had me and Dr. Goldenberg to contend with. I never felt like a cancer patient, Dr. Goldenberg’s office felt like another home to me.
My time with Dr. Goldenberg has made me realize how strong a person I am. I put my life in his talented care, and in order to survive I learned to overcome my fear and look for the positive. Now that I am healthy, I share with my own patients the encouragement that he gave to me to get up and walk, and to make movement one of the keys to reclaiming health. I would never go anywhere else!
Dr. Haglof made the frightening process of surviving cancer easier by providing a sense of positivity throughout the course of my care.
Dr. Goldenberg’s dedication extends to both his patients and to their families. When my husband Gregg was sick, Dr. Goldenberg took the time to encourage and endorse a book that our daughter Ali wrote to help other AML family members. Our family believes this kind of patient support from an oncologist is rare.
Dr. Goldenberg’s love for his work is unmatched and his medical expertise and overall core values related to patient management shine through every time.
