What To Expect

This is a different kind of clinic from any you have been to before. Our slogan of “Causes Identified…Causes Addressed…Health Restored” represents the way we practice based on our extensive education and clinical experience in working for over forty years to help restore chronically ill patients back to good health. Here we work hard (you and us) to make health a reality. Learn more about our unique approach to reverse chronic disease, the Bio-Hygienic Re-Creation System™.

Initial Visit and Evaluation

At your initial visit you will spend an hour or longer with both Dr. Goldberg and Dr. Tener. Your case history will be careful explored and a physical examination tailored to your needs will be administered. Based on this information, specific functional laboratory studies will be recommended.

Lab testing is for educational purposes to help learn what causal factors have contributed to your problems. We conduct nutritional, digestive, immune, endocrine, toxicology and microbiology studies specific to your case to help reveal how your body is functioning. This is not standard lab work as used in medical offices to name a disease. Lab work selected will be specific to your needs and performed according to our specifications to insure that the appropriate functional information is obtained.

All of the above is part of a process we refer to as “Discovery” and is employed to develop an individualized program to help each patient restore health and vitality.

Report of Findings

The Report of Findings will take place within three weeks after the initial evaluation. The results will be discussed with you in detail and copies of all lab reports provided for you.

**Out of state and international patients may elect to do the report of findings over the phone and have their lab reports sent to them by e-mail so that they can view them directly while they are being explained by Dr. Goldberg and/or Dr. Tener.

Initial Steps and Follow Up Appointments

Initial steps are given following the Report of Findings. Follow up appointments are necessary to evaluate progress and modify the program as needed. Appointment frequency varies according to individual need. Most patients are seen one to two times per week initially for the first two to three weeks and once every 30 days thereafter for the first two to four months. Frequency depends on the severity and chronicity of the condition.

Long distance patients have the option of working with us via phone and email for a period of two months following the report of findings. This is in lieu of making regular visits to the office. A return visit to the clinic is required two months after beginning the program for a re-examination.

Each program at the Goldberg Tener Clinic is highly individualized to the patient and includes the following aspects:

Clinical Epidemiology:
A detailed analysis to determine the specific functional causes of a patient’s health problems.

Nutritional Reform:
Progressive, Individualized Diet and Nutritional Counseling to improve the patient’s overall metabolism and nutritional integrity.

The Development and Implementation of a Re-Creation Program:
to allow for proper breakdown of body wastes (catabolism) followed by creating new, more healthy tissues (anabolism).

Specific Lifestyle Changes:
based on what has contributed to the patient’s problems as evidenced by the case history, physical examination, laboratory studies and lifestyle analysis.

Appropriate Physiotherapy:
e.g.: Graston Technique, acupressure, traction, gentle spinal adjustments, therapeutic massage, individualized exercise programs all based on individual needs.

Turning Healthcare into Self Care

At the Goldberg Tener Clinic it is our goal to put the power of self-care into your hands as soon as possible. In the process of working with us, patients are educated on the causes of their health problems and taught effective health promoting practices to both get well and stay well. In doing so, each person becomes less dependent on physicians and able to play a greater role in their own health destiny.
