Dr. Goldberg is literally the best functional medicine doctor I've ever worked with. I thought I was in reasonably good health when I saw her, mostly because I had started to live with the fatigue and rollercoaster thyroid labs I thought was part of getting older or just how my body functions. Well, within a matter of 30 minutes Dr. Goldberg had a few theories she wanted to test out that had to do with seemingly unrelated estrogen and cortisol levels, as well as ideas to get me back to better health. A few inexpensive labs, supplements, and exercise changes later and I'm already feeling better. Most importantly: I'm back to feeling in control of my well-being! I gotta say, though, this doc is unbelievably caring and patient. In addition to her knowledge and experience that's what makes her the best patient advocate.
After a year-long journey of intermittent inpatient stays for severe depression and anxiety symptoms despite being on SSRIs and other medications, I found a holistic provider who would listen to the fact that my symptoms followed my hormone cycle -- Ilana Goldberg. Thank God she knew what she was doing! I want to get the word out to all women with mental health issues to get a women’s health/holistic provider like Ilana who listens to you, will recommend bloodwork AND be able to interpret the levels correctly. It could keep you out of the hospital, save your marriage, and/or give you a daily balanced standard of life you may have thought was not possible for you. Well, it is. Don't give up on seeking answers!
