Dr. Goldberg completed a master’s degree in epidemiology in 2020 and studied clinical outcomes in pediatric heart failure and transplantation. He has received National Institutes of Health funding for his clinical research, for work with colleagues at Inova Heart and Vascular Institute to study genomic biomarkers of heart transplant rejection.

Dr. Goldberg’s clinical work focuses on children with heart failure of multiple etiologies, including myocarditis, dilated cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. He prescribes heart failure medical therapy and plans advanced therapies, including ventricular assist device placement and heart transplantation.
In his previous position, Dr. Goldberg helped strengthen a pediatric heart transplant program and participated in the care of more than 50 heart transplant recipients. He looks forward to working with colleagues at Inova to build a top-tier pediatric heart transplant center through collaboration with other pediatric cardiologists, pediatricians, pediatric cardiac surgeons, nurses, respiratory therapists and many others.
Dr. Goldberg believes that heart failure and transplant care involves a partnership between the patient’s family and the care team. He sees his role within the care team as the main point of communication for the family.
