Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Goel is interested in studying the complications and management of patients with end-stage liver disease, including infections, bleeding and encephalopathy. As the waitlist for liver transplantation continues to grow, many patients develop consequences of decompensated liver disease. It is becoming increasingly important to improve our understanding and care of these complications in order to optimize the quality of life for this growing population of patients.
She is also particularly interested in the management of patients with autoimmune liver disease including autoimmune hepatitis, primary biliary cholangitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis among others.
Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated) [Scvmc], Medicine - Med/Pulmonary, Allergy & Critical Care Medicine
Bio I am a Board Certified Internal, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Physician working at the County Hospital of San Jose: Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.
I take care of a wide range of patients with Pulmonary disease ranging from those whom I see in the clinic to those who are critically ill on life support in the Intensive Care Unit. In addition to my role in the treatment of patients I am part of the teaching faculty for the Internal Medicine Residency program at Santa Clara Valley. I also have an appointment as a Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated) at Stanford University School of Medicine since I teach the Pulmonary and Critical Medicine fellows. I am fellowship site director of the Stanford Pulmonary Critical care fellowship and Critical Care fellowship program at SCVMC.
As a Pulmonary specialist I take care of patients with a range of diseases including but not exclusive to COPD, ILD, asthma, lung cancer, pulmonary arterial hypertension, pleural disease and lung cancer.
I also work as a full time Critical Care physician in the Medical Intensive Care Unit and manage a wide variety of conditions. These conditions include septic shock, respiratory failure, post cardiopulmonary arrest, ARDS, fulminant hepatic failure, drug overdose, coma and acute on chronic multiorgan failure. I am keen to engage with the families of patients who are critically ill in the ICU. I help families understand the spectrum of interventions that are possible for their loved ones from complex organ support to providing comfort care when patients are at the end of their life.
My goal as a physician is to help diagnose and treat the diseases of my patients in a scientific, evidence based, holistic and humane manner.

Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Bio Dr Goldenberg completed his education and training at some of the top clinical sites in the country, including UCLA, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, Tufts Medical Center, and Cedars Sinai Medical Center. In addition to a gastroenterology fellowship, he graduated with a Masters in Healthcare Delivery Science at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. He has a passion for medical education and enjoys teaching medical students, residents, and fellows as a Clinician Educator. His research focuses on Healthcare Delivery with an emphasis on maximizing value-based healthcare. He has an additional interest in translational research with multiple publications and provisional patent applications for medical devices.
Associate Professor of Medicine (Primary Care & Outcomes Research) and, by courtesy, of Epidemiology and Population Health
Bio Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Medicine, a Core Faculty Member at the Centers for Health Policy/Primary Care and Outcomes Research, and a Faculty Affiliate of the Stanford Center on Longevity and Stanford Center for International Development. His research focuses on complex policy decisions surrounding the prevention and management of increasingly common, chronic diseases and the life course impact of exposure to their risk factors. In the context of both developing and developed countries including the US, India, China, and South Africa, he has examined chronic conditions including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, human papillomavirus and cervical cancer, tuberculosis, and hepatitis C and on risk factors including smoking, physical activity, obesity, malnutrition, and other diseases themselves. He combines simulation modeling methods and cost-effectiveness analyses with econometric approaches and behavioral economic studies to address these issues. Dr. Goldhaber-Fiebert graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in 1997, with an A.B. in the History and Literature of America. After working as a software engineer and consultant, he conducted a year-long public health research program in Costa Rica with his wife in 2001. Winner of the Lee B. Lusted Prize for Outstanding Student Research from the Society for Medical Decision Making in 2006 and in 2008, he completed his PhD in Health Policy concentrating in Decision Science at Harvard University in 2008. He was elected as a Trustee of the Society for Medical Decision Making in 2011.
Past and current research topics:
- Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular risk factors: Randomized and observational studies in Costa Rica examining the impact of community-based lifestyle interventions and the relationship of gender, risk factors, and care utilization.
-Cervical cancer: Model-based cost-effectiveness analyses and costing methods studies that examine policy issues relating to cervical cancer screening and human papillomavirus vaccination in countries including the United States, Brazil, India, Kenya, Peru, South Africa, Tanzania, and Thailand.
- Measles, haemophilus influenzae type b, and other childhood infectious diseases: Longitudinal regression analyses of country-level data from middle and upper income countries that examine the link between vaccination, sustained reductions in mortality, and evidence of herd immunity.
- Patient adherence: Studies in both developing and developed countries of the costs and effectiveness of measures to increase successful adherence. Adherence to cervical cancer screening as well as to disease management programs targeting depression and obesity is examined from both a decision-analytic and a behavioral economics perspective.
- Simulation modeling methods: Research examining model calibration and validation, the appropriate representation of uncertainty in projected outcomes, the use of models to examine plausible counterfactuals at the biological and epidemiological level, and the reflection of population and spatial heterogeneity.
