In response, Goldberg announced a new consulting service—Medical Tourism Patient Advisory Services—formed to assist patients considering traveling overseas for medical care. “We are focusing on qualifying hospitals and doctors which patients are considering for treatment,” Goldberg said in a recent press conference held in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
