About Us

Full Service Office

West Brattleboro family practice is a full service family practice office.
We offer complete health care to patients of all ages including newborns, children, teens, adults and geriatrics.

 

Multiple Modalities

We provide traditional Allopathic Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine as well as complimentary and alternative medicine including homeopathy, herbal medicine, diet therapy (including plant-based whole foods nutritional therapy) and certain aspects of ayurvedic and yogic medicine.

 

Osteopathy

In addition to practicing family medicine, Dr. Craig Goldberg’s specialty is Osteopathic Medicine, specifically Biodynamic Osteopathy in the Cranial Field. This is a very gentle but deep, powerful and effective method of balancing the body to help bring about maximal natural self-healing for a wide variety of clinical problems.

 

Physician Assistant

Anika Opp-Harris,PAC is a fully licensed physician’s assistant who provides all aspects of office based family medicine. Please see her profile to learn more about Anika’s background and training.

 

Office Environment

WBFP seeks to provide a warm, friendly, comfortable and personal environment within which patients can expect excellent quality healthcare.
Our receptionist answers calls personally as much as possible whenever the office is open. Our patients usually have a real person to talk to when they call. The answering machine is used mainly when the office is extremely busy, closed or on lunchbreak and even then the patient can call the toll free number provided to speak with the answering service personnel. When patients do need to leave a message we generally get back to them very quickly.

 

HIPPA

We are very careful to follow HIPPA guidelines giving patients the assurance of privacy and confidentiality.

 

Hospital Affiliation

Dr. Goldberg is on staff at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital. We utilize the BMH hospitalist service whenever one of our patients require hospitalization.
WBFP provides 24 hour per day medical coverage via our participation in the Brattleboro family practice call group. This group includes 11 other Dr.s besides Dr. Goldberg who share call responsibilities for the Brattleboro community.

We are able to perform various lab services at WBFP. These include blood sample collecting which is sent to Quest Labs where almost any blood test can be performed, rapid strep tests, flu tests, urinalysis, pap tests, std testing, ppd planting, and microscopy.
