Dr. Amy Goldstein is one of the best doctors I have ever had the honor to be seen by. She picked up on things I knew were not right that no other doctor has ever been able to figure out/explain. I can't speak higher of this woman and the care/guidance she provided me.
Amy Goldstein is a compassionate, brilliant physician who was easy to communicate with. So thankful to have had the privilege/access to her knowledge and care. Thank you Amy!!!!
Dr. Amy Goldstein is a top notch doctor and specialist! Her bedside manner is exemplary. But above all else she embodies a doctor who honors the parent and caregiver perspective and concerns as an integral member of the child's team. She will be very missed in Pittsburgh when she leaves. Our hope is that her position will be filled with another mitochondrial specialist who is willing to go the extra mile, as she did with her patients.
Dr. Goldstein and her nurse, Megan, always respond to our calls and concerns about our son. They have gone above and beyond expectations to provide him with exceptional care and concern.

Dr Goldstein is phenomenal words cannot describe her
Dr. Goldstein is an EXCELLENT physician! Our daughter has issues with being around people but she LOVES her! She is FANTASTIC at what she does and an asset to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh! We feel very comfortable with her providing care for our child.
Dr. Goldstein ensures that all patient concerns have been addressed, even staying past normal closing time to do so, which is admirable. She explains things in a way that's easy for non-Medical people to grasp, but is capable of having excellent conversations with people at every level of medical/biological knowledge.
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Goldstein. She was very informative and took her time with us. She made us feel very comfortable.
After our experience with Dr. Grudziak, who we felt was very rushed and not thorough or very concerned with our concerns for our son, it was a breath of fresh air to see Dr. Goldstein who was patient and listened and answered questions, offered sensible suggestions, interacted positively and effectively with our son. I feel she really cared about our concerns with his toe-walking and she seemed genuinely interested in helping us to draw a conclusion.
Dr. Amy Goldstein is the best provider we have seen in the department of Neurology at Children's Hostpital of Pittsburgh and our son has been a patient in that dept for 13years and we have seen many providers. She even visited him repeatedly in the PICU during an extended stay in March and she was not really in her care for that stay. She is fabulous!
We LOVE Dr. Goldstien. She is so personable and humble.
