Dont believe a word she says....i like the special skills he has that doesnt leave any marks. Maybe the reason she has no marks is that she is a liar like 10 to 30 percent of domestic violence claims against men

Dr. Goldman had been pushed to his limit regardless of whatever lies Loriann told. How could he live with this crazy woman for so long and not be effected and lose control. Enough about what his problems were as well as her problems, this is a tragic event that could ruin the career of a great doctor. My heart goes out to him.

Just a few points to consider regarding domestic violence and the case that has been described in the news regarding Dr. Howard Goldman and Lori Ann Goldman.

* Although both females and males are perpetrators of domestic violence, the consequences for females are much more likely to be FATAL.

* Dr. Goldman told the police he had hidden the Smith and Wesson in his pool filter. Lori Ann may have exaggerated/lied about physical abuse, but Dr. Goldman himself admitted to the presence of the weapon. This is concerning due to the potential for lethality that a gun would bring to a domestic violence situation.

* There is specific evidence to suggest that Dr. Goldman was abusive in some way to the first Mrs. Goldman. During the 1980s and early 1990s on the Adolescent/Child Psychiatric Unit at Manatee Memorial Hospital, multiple paintings were hung on the walls that were painted by Dr. Goldman's first wife. These paintings depicted Dr. Goldman as a fierce and aggressive monster. Why would Dr. Goldman allow such paintings to be displayed? Could be he enjoyed the amount of power (although be it negative)with which the paintings imbued him. This need for power is a typical characteristic of an abuser.

In terms of Dr. Goldman's professional career, please note the following (some are a repetition from earlier postings in another area):

* Dr. Goldman has given medication orders multiple times while obviously impaired. And when the order was found to be incorrect, Dr. Goldman blamed the nurse for the error.

* Dr. Goldman has verbally abused a young child that he was treating. He yelled and jumped from his chair... filled with rage. The child soiled himself and ran from the room.

* Dr. Goldman has told an adolescent patient with an eating disorder that she should get a nose job.

* Dr. Goldman has initiated Baker Acts on patients whom he had not assessed first within the legally required time frame.

* Dr. Goldman has referred direct admissions to the hospital who were at serious risk of self-harm and arrived to the hospital aggressive and not wanting treatment. This is dangerous and reckless in terms of patient safety.

* Dr. Goldman has repeatedly berated, insulted, and sought to intimidate other health care professionals. Dr. Goldman has verbally abused colleagues and thrown objects. Then following these behaviors would ask for forgiveness using a number of excuses. Despite showing contrition, Dr. Goldman would continue to exhibit the same abusive behaviors. As observed previously, this mirrors the Cycle of Violence that is found in domestic violence cases in the home.

Lori Ann's character does not provide adequate reason for Dr. Goldman's abuse. No one can cause someone to be aggressive- only that person themselves can make that choice. In order to threaten with a gun, a number of social and moral barriers must be broken. A healthy individual can go their entire lives without threatening or using weapons.

To Healt Care Pro; You have some very valid and interesting points about this situation and seem to have personal knowledge.
Having said this, do you have any knowledge of the current Mrs. Goldman's mental capacity. From all that I have gathered both public and personal she is a narcissistic, evil and manuplative person.
I too have knowledge of Dr Goldman verbally abusing and perhaps using his power of MD. Maybe this is an opportunity for someone to report him to the Florida Medical board and inspect his ability to practice and prescribe.
My thoughts are is that he is an irrational unstable man, his first wife was a drunk and too narcissistic. She was taken off the streets in Miami by Dr Goldman and her paintings(however strange) obviously depict a woman struggling with her own identity. I've seen them hanging on the walls at Manatee Memorial as she insisted and was her desire to sell them. They would host parties at their home and invite the elite who out of respect for Dr Goldman would buy one then hide the paintings in their closet. This was his way of trying to show support for her aweful work and yet she just complained how bad her life was. At one point she was considering and exploring a lesbian relationship. Can't stay away from the bottle. She was assaulting and never a nice person. She should have been tossed back to the streets.
His second wife which not much is said about her, who is the only wife that got involved, saved his practice, and his financials and regained what little to no respect the community had for him after his first wife caused many to doubt his abilities as a physician.
Next he marries this woman who has had 4 prior marriages all of which fear her, she has harmed and stalked many for years, has a son living with an arsonal of weapons in the home and murders a young man and she pays monies to cover up the crime and yet she's like oil, nothing sticks.
Lori is always the victim, not to excuse Dr Goldman but Lori has done many, many bad things to his family his children, parents, ex wife, friends and collegues.
My opinion is yes, Dr. Goldman needs psychological help, but he has to my knowledge never owned or posessed a gun or harmed anyone physically (maybe over prescribing)but not hitting.
It is my belief Lori attacked him and took out a gun as she wrote about this on his first ex-wifes husband's facebook. How she bought this gun cause you never know, and she loves going to the shooting range etc.. She tries to befriend everyone in Dr. Goldman's life then uses it to her benefit.
His son was married a year or so ago, they had an on-line registry in which Lori set up a bogus name and blogged horrible lies about the young man and his fiance. They had to take the registry down and Lori was un-invited. Dr. Goldman would not attend his own son's wedding nor was Lori allowed to attend his mother's funeral.
It's obvious that there is a lot of disturbing acts going on between them. It is known he must supply her with drugs, Illegally or she goes off on him and becomes violent. I think if he did perpetrate this, then he finally snapped.
Too bad the trigger was not pulled, she would be gone and he would be locked up and nobody would give two craps about them...
Can we hope that the State Atty doesn't back down AGAIN and seek the truth and finally have her arrested on falsifying a police report.. or simply for just being her?

Response to most recent post-

I am afraid I've not yet been able to find information on Lori Ann Goldman. I am sure I would find many disturbing things. It's never a happy situation when two individuals with pathology are joined in any way.

The professional offenses cited were observed many years ago. Much time has elapsed since. At the time, however, reports were made but consequences were not forthcoming, at least not to the point where Dr. Goldman could lose his license or be suspended (at least not to my knowledge).

In the past, negative behaviors by doctors have been minimized and the response by institutions would be to find fault with the nurse/health care staff. When decisions were to be made as to who was the truthful one, the doctor would often get the pass.

The culture seems to be changing presently as Joint Commission has identified a collegial and open environment as necessary for patient safety. Hospitals that I know of have enlisted specific policies for approved methods to handle verbal abuse by physicians. Also verbal and telephone orders have been restricted with "read back" policies put into place to avoid poor communications regarding medications and procedures.

Dr. Goldman's inability to continue to afford his malpractice insurance has barred him from admitting patients to the hospital and therefore has been kept to the outpatient arena.

thank you for the information, always appreciated

It seems that everyone can agree that both Goldman parties exhibit significant pathologies.

As I have not met or read anything definitive about Lori Ann Goldman, I can only speak to Dr. Goldman himself.

Much as Lori Ann has been described as lying, Dr. Goldman lies for personal gain as well.

For example, an MD who was practicing with him left the practice due to philosophical differences. As a result, Dr. Goldman spread rumors about the Dr. through the medical community making it difficult for that person to find success.

Dr. Goldman has lied to other doctors who took call for him and told them that they would be guaranteed reimbursement by patient's insurance companies when he knew this wasn't the case and he was attempting to get coverage for a trip.

Once again- lying for personal gain and control... Antisocial Personality.

But seems both are guilty of much; violence is the natural risk factor for their type of relationship.

But no matter the characters involved, I cannot say it is too bad that the trigger was not pulled. The situation is much too sad for that thought.

This is getting very interesting,
What I do know is Dr Goldman may have not had monies for his mal-practice insurance but he has also had three deaths and I heard he assaulted a nurse. I think the combination resulted in his being taken off staff at the area hospitals.
Lori Ann had absconded all of his monies and his father has dis-inherited him and will no longe so long as he is married to this evil deil woman will give monitary support so long as Lori is in the picture.
He's living in a hotel, and requesting to return to his home to retireve his personal belongings such as clothing. He better take his jewelry and any other vsluables before she takes it to be pawned. It was her tht screwd the Dr you referenced that left the practice and I can say this with GREAT CONFIDENCE that it was LORI hiding behind Dr Goldman's name spreading rumors about him or any others. It is or I should say was never Dr Goldman's nature to do so. Perhaps you have first hand knowledge. I'm sure if you speak to his second wife she can tell you the hell Lori brought into her life, stalking her for over 6 years, writing lies and falsifying police reports. The Manatee County Sheriffs have subpoenaed the Goldman's phone and internet records which proved the harassment and have warned her recently to arrest her if she continues. This was after Lori made phone calls over 25 times threatening her etc(recorded). I know his second wife personally and the DR she worked for many years, describes her as a crazy woman.
We can keep this post updated as the court dates get near so sit back and see how this all plays out. Just hope justice prevails and gets these unstable waste of lives off the streets.
Dr Goldman is now a Suboxone Dr working at a facility called Family Preservations in Sarasota, how apropos> REALLY, Family Preseration. Dr Goldman has put the fun is disfunction.

Honestly, I did not want to respond to anymore topix regarding the dysfunctional Goldman's as I have had years of harassment from Loriann which Florida Law Enforcement has been able to thus far stop her or she will be arrested.

I'm not sure who take a break is but am almost certain who healthcare is....

As to why Howard and I divorced, let me just say that it it's complicated. He was NEVER abusive, we did not own any firearms. He was kind to both me and my children and I refuse to air my personal details regarding why we divorced.

I can assert that take a break is accurate in his/her information and holds very true. As to health care; I get what you're referencing regarding Howard and his bad behaviors~~

Because i am a subscriber to Topix, I get updates in my e-mail when threads are updated. I just have much more important priorities in my life and I wish the best for Howard. I hope he finally divorces this despicable woman, change his life and regain his reputation as a professional man that I once knew.

DANG, just saw his latest mug shot and he looks like a crazy man or fresh from "One flew over the cuckoos nest". Like to have been a fly on the wall that night.
Seems likely he'll end up in a Psych Ward, how ironic that would be.
He was released on the 28th, Someone send him a "get out of Jail free" card...

From what I read in the arrest warrant; it seems fitting for the Mrs to accuse Dr Goldman on the very day of his court hearing 6/20/13, allowing him to come to the home to recover some personal items that he is accused of violating the order. I know Dr Goldman is not a stable man but I smell a rat, a set-up.
Lori is going to hunker down as she needs a tow truck to get out of bed due to her excessive weight gain. Dr Goldman is in for a rough ride in ridding of her.
