He started a private practice in Cardiology and Cardiac Catheterization at that time while maintaining an extensive teaching schedule. As a Clinical Instructor he was responsible for teaching medical students, interns and residents at St. Lukes, as well as the clinical education of cardiology fellows in consultative cardiology, EKG and echocardiogram interpretation, and cardiac catheterization and angioplasty. He was active in the growth of the use of intra-aortic balloon pump support, especially in the management of critically ill patients following open heart surgery. In 1997 Dr. Goldmann left New York City to open a suburban practice. He is on the staff of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories at Hackensack University Medical Center. He has special interests in percutaneous coronary interventional procedures using balloon angioplasty and intra-coronary stent placement, as well as endovascular treatment of peripheral artery disease with balloons, stents, rotational atherectomy, and other devices.
