Estelle Toby Goldstein, M.D. is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and is licensed to practice in the state of California. She holds a valid license from the DEA to write prescriptions, but is an expert in nutritional therapies involving vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other cutting-edge treatments.
A native of Boston, she graduated from medical school in France, and after returning the US, did her internship in general surgery and residencies in neurosurgery and psychiatry. She has also done fellowships in neurology in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and psychopharmacology at the University of Kansas, Wichita.
She calls her current practice “Natural Alternative Mind-Body Medicine” and chiefly concentrates on transitioning patients away from prescription drugs and onto natural substances. She is also a master practitioner of Emotional Freedom Technique, a powerful and dynamic form of energy psychology that usually brings quicker results than traditional psychotherapy.
A proud veteran, she has served as psychiatrist to the 82nd Airborne in Ft. Bragg, NC while in the U.S. Army and worked in the VA Hospital system in several states.
After her Army service, she held faculty posts in both University of Kansas and University of Oklahoma schools of medicine.
Dr. Goldstein is in demand as a public speaker and a media guest, and has written an advice column in a major market daily newspaper and hosted a weekly call-in radio show on one of the national networks. She now lives in San Diego, California with her husband and business partner, Wade B. Ward.
