The traditional medical model is spectacularly successful treating many acute health conditions. Unfortunately, not every ailment is amenable to this type of treatment. Many patients continue to suffer from chronic problems that don’t respond well to this paradigm.

  • Are you concerned that standard treatment options can be harsh and harmful?

  • Are you looking for a more natural and holistic approach to medical care?

  • Dr. Goldman personalizes your recommendations by integrating the very best of traditional medicine and alternative medicine

Supplements are supplemental. They add to the nutrition that comes from a healthy diet. Based on each of our individual diets, genetics, exercise levels, biochemistry and physiology, diet alone may or may not be able to provide all the building blocks necessary to achieve the very best health.

There are several competing technologies for Vaginal Rejuvenation, all of which share the same end effect. Dr Goldman uses ThermiVa, as it is the smallest and most comfortable instrument and has the greatest number of applications. ThermiVa is performed in the office and does not require any anesthesia or recuperation time. It can help with the following:

  • Urinary Incontinence, for mild to moderate symptoms.

  • Vaginal Dryness. Therapy increases blood flow, allowing for the production of greater amounts of natural lubrication

  • Decreased orgasm frequency or intensity. Treatment results in orgasms that are easier to obtain and stronger in intensity

  • Excessive size of labia, or for vaginal laxity

We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures such as:
