Professional Statement

Dr. Goldstein is a world-renowned dermatologist who developed many of the procedures for tattoo removal and he remains a leading practitioner in that specialty, having trained hundreds of physicians from around the globe.

A graduate of Columbia College (1955) and SUNY Downstate (1959), Dr. Goldstein completed his dermatology residency at the Skin and Cancer Hospital (Bellevue and NYU’s Postgraduate Medical Center). He achieved the rank of Captain before completing his military service in Hawaii and was invited to become Chief of Dermatology for the Honolulu Medical Group and Director of its Research and Education Foundation Laboratory. His groundbreaking research led to the development of the first sunscreen, and in 1972, the American Academy of Dermatology recognized his work with its Original Research in the Prevention of Skin Cancers award. Dr. Goldstein also pioneered the use of photographic techniques for the early detection of skin cancers. Other clinical accomplishments include the introduction of cryotherapy for the treatment of acne and use of the laser in the treatment of Kaposi’s sarcoma.

A prodigious author, Dr. Goldstein published The Skin You Live In (1978) and served as Editor of the Hawaii Medical Journal for ten years. The recipient of many awards, he became the first specialist in dermatology named a Laureate Fellow by the American College of Physicians (2005) and more recently he was named a “Leading Physician of the World” by The International Association of Dermatologists.

Having this gifted clinician join our faculty is a boon to patients, residents, and medical students alike.

After much inconvenience, central res person found my appt. I no longer trust zocdoc; this is second occurrence of faulty appt this week. And receptionist was rude!

I had to fill out papers I had already filled to see the doctor and when I finally did, it was a very short session (maybe 2 min!) , I was very rushed and felt like I can't even ask a question . I was told what to do and I didn't even have time to ask him how to apply my prescription and what is it he just left the room .

I was very nervous before because I've never seen a doctor in USA and also worried about my skin condition. He and his stuff were so kind to me. I had time to ask questions and he gave me clear answers. The visit was short but I got to say that it was worth the time.

He's been in to this business for more than 40 years, so he knows how to make money! He's only charging insurances without really examining the patients. It was like in and out visit, it really didn't last more than 2 minutes, and everybody was like that. I am suffering from severe hair loss. He just asked me questions and told me to buy some supplements from grocery or pharmacy store, take them for 3 months and come back here. He mentioned that of course you won't see any change. He did not asked for any exam, blood test, hormonal exam or any thing else. He could refer me to somebody else if it was not his specialty! He said after 3 months I'll prescribe some vitamins! A herbal specialist would have taken care of me better than he did. Just take some suplements that certainly will not work and come back after 3 months, to charge your insurance. He is old and has no time and patience to spend on patients. How he's been allowed to still practice despite his poor performance!?!

My visit with Dr. Goldstein was very helpful. My reason for visiting was pretty minor-- two warts near my fingers-- but they have been on my skin for months despite various treatments. It looks like they are going away now, though. During the visit, Dr. Goldstein also offered to give me a sample of acne cream. I definitely appreciated this suggestion and will be picking it up soon.
