Dr. Goldberg taught me more than I know how to describe in these few words. My condolences to his friends and family. I am a better clinician because he taught me. I am a better person because I knew him. He has changed the world, and his students will not forget him.

As a psychiatrist who trained under Dr. Goldberg at Rush, words alone cannot express how his tutelage has influenced my career. Rarely a day goes by when seeing patients that I don’t think of Arnie, and I consider myself privileged to have been mentored by such a man. My condolences to Connie and her family.

Dear Connie,
Katie and I are so sorry to hear about Arnie’s passing. He was a very important part of the psychiatric and psychoanalytic community in Chicago, and of our department at Rush. We send our condolences to you and your family. Sincerely, Jan Fawcett and Katie Busch.
