Dr. Robert P. Goldman
With over thirty years in medical practice, Dr. Goldman has witnessed the development of modern American medicine. Wonderful new treatments, vaccinations, medications, surgeries and therapies have prolonged the lives of many Americans. Though we are still plagued by many chronic ailments and stresses that reduce the pleasures of that prolonged life, Dr. Goldman sees that overemphasis on synthetic pharmaceutical medications has not solved all our chronic medical problems and has at times made them worse.
As a holistic practitioner, Dr. Goldman appreciates the wide range of options available. Holistic medicine includes many complementary and alternative therapies without rejecting the mainstream allopathic medicine that is the basis of Dr. Goldman’s medical school, residency and years of continuing medical education. Dr. Goldman does not just treat body parts. Each patient is unique and whole. All medical problems come in the context of your life including social, family, work, mental, spiritual and medical environments. Dr. Goldman chooses from many options to offer patients a course of therapy that suits their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. He wants to know how he can help you as the complete person that you are.
Dr. Goldman has long had a special interest in hormone balance. Often ignored by mainstream allopathic medicine, even small hormone imbalances can lead to big problems. Virtually the entire spectrum of human hormones is now available as real, bioidentical replacement hormones. Dr. Goldman can do extensive hormone evaluation and prescribe these bioidentical replacement hormones as needed for supplementation of ovary, testicle, thyroid and adrenal gland functions.
In today’s rapidly changing world of menopausal science, Dr. Goldman keeps up with the latest information on hormone replacement, bioidentical hormones, compounding pharmacies, the wide variety of available compounded hormones and medications, natural and herbal therapies, as well as information on breast cancer, bone health and women’s heart disease. Menopausal management must be individualized to your personal needs.
Male Hormone Supplementation (Andropause)
Over the years of Dr. Goldman’s treatment of female hormone disorders, he has been asked where husbands and male companions might receive similar treatment. Unable to find other Atlanta physicians using an approach for men that paralleled his philosophy of female hormone balance, Dr. Goldman began a search for appropriate sources of information in male hormone physiology. After extensive study, taking many graduate medical courses and treatment of a select group of men, Dr. Goldman opened his practice to treat male hormone issues. Holistic treatment is of paramount importance here, too. A man’s entire medical, lifestyle and personal goals and issues must be considered. As with women, natural bioidentical hormones are used to restore natural vigor, health and performance. Using laboratory testing, hormone levels are monitored to ensure adequate supplementation while avoiding overmedication.

Over thirty years in the active practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology
During his career, Dr. Goldman delivered over 7,000 babies, incorporating new medical information and technologies, including fetal monitoring, obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound, laparoscopic and laser surgery, hysteroscopic surgery and endometrial ablation. With a long interest in safe, non-invasive and natural medicine, Dr. Goldman has done extensive study in complementary and alternative medical techniques culminating in his board certification in holistic medicine. As a baby boomer himself, Dr. Goldman has special interest in menopause, male aging and hormone balance. This has led him to certification in Menopause Management by the North American Menopause Society. Along with his studies of female aging, Dr. Goldman has done extensive study and taken many continuing medical education courses about the aging male. To concentrate on menopausal issues, holistic medicine and hormone balance, Dr. Goldman ceased obstetric care and major surgery. His practice is now limited to office practice and less invasive, outpatient surgical procedures.
