Dr. Avram Goldberg was formerly at North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System in Lake Success, New York
This premier academic medical center is led by Dr. Avram Goldberg. He diagnoses and treats adults with any form of scleroderma, such as limited or diffuse systemic sclerosis and localized forms such as such as morphea, linear, and en coup de sabre.
Scleroderma often takes many years to diagnose because of insidious onset, vague initial symptoms, and low physician and public awareness. It is typically diagnosed and treated by rheumatologists, but because it is a rare and very complex disease, there are only a few dozen scleroderma specialists in the United States. Expert care can be crucial for proper screening, diagnosis, patient education, clinical trials, and treatment.
