Born to an Austro-Hungarian Jewish family in Transylvania, Dr. Goldstein’s interest in health care was influenced by the warmth and compassion of her father, a physician who specialized in tuberculosis and whose patients traveled extensively to come into his care. Dr. Goldstein was enthralled by the relationships her father forged with his patients and desired to emulate his passion by caring for the children of her own community. She first obtained a Bachelor of Science, summa cum laude, from the City College of New York in 1968 and a Doctor of Medicine, cum laude, from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in 1972. She then served as a pediatric intern, pediatric resident, and pediatric co-chief resident at Lenox Hill Hospital from 1972 to 1975.

Dr. Goldstein has cemented her legacy as an accomplished author, penning the novel “24 Karat Kids,” which was a Boston Globe Bestseller for six weeks and translated into seven languages. She has also been featured on Lifetime TV on “The Balancing Act Show” in 2010 and on CNN to discuss the swine flu epidemic in 2009 and 2010. A member of the New York County Medical Society and National Board of Medical Examiners, she is also an honorary police surgeon for the New York City Department of Police. In addition, she has notably been elected a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

In recognition of her exceptional achievements in pediatric medicine, Dr. Goldstein has accrued several accolades throughout her career.

Dr. Goldstein was inducted into the Professional Hall of Fame in 2012, and she was honored as one of The Best Doctors of New York by New York Media LLC in 1999, 2000, 2003, and from 2005 to 2011.
