Dr. Gerald Goldberg, MD Retirement Announcement
There is no easy way of saying it. After much consideration, Dr. Goldberg has decided to retire from active practice as of January 1, 2022.
In his words, “The past 40 years have flown by. I lived my dream of doctoring while building Pima Dermatology into a full-service center of excellence.”
Read his full letter to patients here.
Double board-certified in Pediatrics and Dermatology, he has touched the lives of many of all ages for nearly 40 years. His special interest in the laser treatment of vascular birthmarks in children, and aesthetic laser skin resurfacing, have brought him international recognition for his contributions to Laser Medicine.
A pioneer and global expert in dermatologic laser surgery, Dr. Goldberg is certified in more than 30 laser modalities. He is past President of the Arizona Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery Society (ADDSS) and is an active member of many Dermatologic societies. He is best known for his contributions to the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), where he received the Presidential Citation in 2020, and is a recipient of the two highest awards given by ASLMS – the Ellet H. Drake Memorial Award in 2019, and the Leon Goldman Memorial Award in 2017, in recognition of his lifetime achievements in the advancement of Laser Medicine. He has spoken at conferences around the world, on four continents and three languages, over the years.
Dr. Goldberg founded Pima Dermatology in 1986, cultivating a team of exceptional staff and protocols for the best in patient care. He has mentored and trained staff members, fellow colleagues from around the world, as well as Residents and Fellows through the University of Arizona, for almost four decades.
So what happens next? An exciting new chapter awaits. He is exploring a number of options to continue his teaching, mentoring, and research in the Dermatologic Laser niche. He will also have much-deserved extra time with his family, new opportunities for travel, and of course, far more adventures in photography!
There is no replacing Dr. Goldberg – the man, the myth, the legend. We thank him for his generous contributions to medicine, and our shared vision of optimum care – with ingenuity and integrity always at the helm.
Matthew Beal, MD and Sarah Schram, MD, practice owners since 2018, and their team, will continue to provide the exemplary, compassionate care that is at the core of Pima Dermatology. The Laser program at Pima Dermatology will continue with Dr. Beal leading the team of highly-trained certified laser technicians and healthcare professionals into the future.
It has been a true honor and privilege to partner with Dr. Goldberg. We have been inspired, have learned so much, and achieved such great heights with his leadership and friendship over these tremendous years.
We will make sure this transition is seamless for our patients. Please contact us at 520.795.7729, Ext. 0 if you have any questions.

Meet Our Cool Warrior CoolSculpting® Contest Winner
Meet our Cool Warrior winner, Stephanie! We were beyond touched by the remarkable stories that we received through the nominations.
Our mission was to find someone with a warrior spirit who keeps a positive, cool attitude through tough times or who always puts others’ needs before their own. Because we think this courage is beyond cool, we teamed up with CoolSculpting® to give away a CoolSculpting® Makeover (a $9,000 value) to a deserving “Cool Warrior” in our community.
This was a difficult decision as all candidates are so deserving of this win! We thank everyone for submitting stories about loved ones, people who have demonstrated strength and have been supportive to others in times of need. We are inspired.
Stephanie has spent the last ten years putting others first. From her mother who had a stroke and needs 24/7 care, to her husband who struggled with his own difficult health battle that took him a full year to recover, she has persevered to remain strong in giving time, support, and comfort to those needing her the most. While managing to care for their children and her parents with disabilities during this unimaginably challenging time, she started the only nonpartisan grassroots group in the city, “Tucson Vote Riders” to drive people who could use a helping hand (those with disabilities, parents who need car seats, etc.) to vote. She has also been working on improving her own life, losing 25 pounds in the process.
In her husband’s words, “This woman is a superhero and doesn’t know it. She has been saving up to get Coolsculpting® for two years. Instead, she gave the money to the Tucson Food Bank this summer. I just want to help her feel like the hero she is.”
We will share Stephanie’s journey with CoolSculpting in the coming months!
We thank CoolSculpting® for teaming up with us to honor and celebrate someone so deserving. In addition, our runner-ups will be receiving special prizes for their demonstrations of courage and love out there! We are in awe!
