Since joining Summit Cancer Care in 1979, Ronald F. Goldberg has worked to establish a comprehensive system of cancer care in Savannah. By helping to obtain a grant from the National Cancer Institute for this purpose, his efforts led to the establishment of an oncology program at Memorial University Medical Center, the first of its kind in Southeast Georgia. Throughout his career, Dr. Goldberg has participated in clinical research and has been committed to focusing on the full range of patient needs by providing an individualized treatment program for each patient.
After graduating from Boston University and Dartmouth Medical School, Dr. Goldberg received his medical degree from Harvard University School of Medicine in 1970. He completed a medical internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa., and fellowships both in medical oncology and hematology at the State University of New York in Buffalo. He also served as a clinical assistant professor of medicine at SUNY and served as a captain in the United States Army before moving to Savannah.
As part of Dr. Goldberg’s extensive involvement in promoting high standards of cancer care in the Savannah area, he served as director of the Medical Tumor Clinic at Memorial Health University Medical Center for 15 years and has held positions as the principal investigator of the Community Hospital Oncology Program, director of Oncology Services at Memorial and chairman of the Cancer Committee for the St. Joseph’s and Candler Hospital Consortium.
