Dr. Goldman is a New York native who attended veterinary school in Bologna, Italy. He enjoyed the challenge of learning a new language and becoming fluent enough to study veterinary medicine all at the same time, as he knew it would help him fulfill his lifelong goal of healing sick animals and helping to keep healthy pets thriving. Dr. Goldman continues to maintain close connections with his friends in Bologna. Dr. Goldman considers his staff as family and they see him as an enthusiastic, caring and committed leader. He enjoys an especially close knit family life at his home in Arnold with his wife Jodi. He has two children, Zachary and Samantha, and three grandchildren, Rhodes, Scottie and Marlowe. They share a love of sports, tennis, bike-riding, and animals.
