Many years before natural health care came into vogue and long before the current fads of “alternative medicine” and “functional medicine”, The Goldberg Clinic was founded with the express mission of reversing chronic diseases by addressing causes.

Today The Goldberg Tener Clinic is an institution whose history evolved out of Dr. Goldberg’s quest to help others reverse their chronic health problems after successfully restoring his own health from serious autoimmune disease while a young man. A Clinic based in both nature and science offering those in need a place to come where their health can be Re-Created.

The Goldberg Tener Clinic today is based on Dr. Goldberg’s professional education in Public Health, Clinical Epidemiology, Clinical Nutrition, Toxicology and Chiropractic, forty five years of clinical experience and the compassion  that comes from going through the hardships of chronic illness and having recovered…a doctor who can say to others with chronic disease, “I have been there and done that.”

Dr. Goldberg developed the Goldberg Bio-Hygienic Re-Creation System, assisting those who have lost hope return to an active life and take control of their destiny.

Dr. Goldberg attended the University of Texas Medical Center Graduate School of Public Health, where he wrote his thesis on Biological Approaches to Rheumatoid Diseases and graduated with a Masters of Public Health Degree in Chronic Disease Control. He later became a Doctor of Chiropractic and served for thirty-seven years as a University Professor in Clinical Nutrition, Gastroenterology and Rheumatology teaching over thirty thousand students and doctors. He has served as the Health Director of the famed Shangri La Hygiene Education Institute, as a Health Planner for the State of Illinois and the Federal Government, as a consultant for two leading functional laboratories, as a Science Advisor for the Arthritis Trust, as the Director of Research for a major Probiotic Company and as a sought after professional speaker on chronic disease topics to thousands of physicians in seminars and conferences.

Known for the challenging cases he has returned to good health, he has long taken a highly individualized approach with each patient. He has lectured and written extensively on chronic disease reversal, including rheumatoid and other autoimmune conditions, gastrointestinal problems, chronic fatigue related issues, allergies, and other chronic, disease states.

Dr. Goldberg holds Diplomate Status with the American Clinical Board of Nutrition and the Chiropractic Board of Clinical Nutrition. He is a Certified Member of the International Association of Hygienic Physicians. He also directs The Hygeia Health Education Center in Brooks, Georgia.

David Tener, BS, DC

  • Director of the Goldberg Tener Clinic for Chronic Disease Reversal

Dr. David Tener developed an avid interest in health and fitness as a young man. An outstanding athlete he played multiple sports including basketball, soccer and volleyball and obtained an athletic scholarship to New York University. Burning the candle at both ends as a student and athlete he found himself suffering with fatigue and skin issues which the medical profession was unable to assist him with. This brought him to study the works of the early Hygienists leading to an interest in Nutrition and a natural way of life. He made lifestyle changes which were rewarded soon afterwards with his health returning to its full vigor.

Graduating Magna Cum Laude from New York University with a major in Psychology, his new interest in health, nutrition and hygiene led him to pursue a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. Having heard about the Goldberg Clinic and Dr. Goldberg he visited the Goldberg Clinic For Chronic Disease Reversal and met Dr. Goldberg whose writings and reputation he had admired. He convinced Dr. Goldberg, based upon exhibiting his knowledge, interest and passion for Clinical Nutrition and Hygiene, to allow him to intern at the Goldberg Clinic which he did from 2010 till 2012 at which time he graduated Summa Cum Laude and Valedictorian of his Class of over 160 students. He so positively impressed both Dr. Goldberg and patients at the Goldberg Clinic during his internship that he was offered an Associate Position at the Clinic upon his graduation which he accepted. 

Bringing a dynamic, youthful, force to the Clinic he helped in advancing the services of The Goldberg Clinic and in the development of the Hygeia Health Education Center.
