Anyone can claim the title “nutritionist” without regard to what qualifications they may possess. However, there are those who have amassed the education and practical experience to truly merit the title: Registered Dietitians. Robyn Goldberg is an outstanding member of the latter group. An R.D. who earned her degree in dietetics at California State University Northridge. Goldberg has gone on to private practice in Beverly Hills as well as inpatient clinical practice at the world-renowned Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Inspired by her desire to provide long-term nutritional solutions for her patients, Goldberg was motivated early on by the chronic condition of a close family member who suffered from coronary artery disease and her own desire as an athlete to maintain a healthy body weight. She recognized that long-term health could result from permanent lifestyle changes, not superficial “quick-fix” solutions. Goldberg now applies that philosophy to her patients, treating them with a combination of individualized therapeutic diets, fitness regimens and compassionate counseling.
“All of my work is very tailored to each persons lifestyle,” Goldberg says, “I approach it from a behavioral standpoint, by being able to reprogram people’s natural intuitive eating cues.”
Using medical nutrition therapy, support and motivation, Goldberg addresses the conditions of Diabetes Mellitus, Coronary Artery Disease, Hypertension, Gastrointestinal disorders, kidney and liver malfunctions, Obesity and Disordered Eating. Her skill in helping alleviate these ailments has been duly recognized by her colleagues, as Cedars-Sinai Cardiologist Mark K. Urman, M.D., F.A.C.C. notes:
“Robyn’s nutritional counseling has brought a whole new dimension to my practice. Her practical and individualized advice has been beyond helpful, and the patients have truly made progress they were unable to achieve in the past.”
Goldberg’s healthful endeavors extend outside of the clinical setting as well. She serves as a Nutrition Consultant for the Celiac Disease Foundation as well as an Advisory Board Member for the Healthy Dining Restaurant Guide. She has contributed articles to enutrition.com and addictionsolutions.com and her specialized classes, conducted for the Motion Picture Wellness Program, Universal Pictures, and other private and public institutions, regularly sell out.
“The positive response from our patients has been overwhelming and unanimous,” endorses Cedars-Sinai Cardiologist Gary D. Sugarman, M.D. “In 25 years of practice, I have yet to meet such skill, professionalism and communicative talents.”
From clinic to classroom, Goldberg is that rare combination of articulate expert and telegenic personality that makes her a sought-after commentator, educator and writer. As one who has truly earned the title, Goldberg is a nutritionist with the credentials and compassion to truly make a difference in her patients lives.
