History: Formally co-founded by Roy A. Goldberg, PT, and Edward J. Blum, PT in 1990 at the Tremont Ave location, as an extension of Mr. Goldberg's already existing practice at the Buhre Ave. location. Mr. Goldberg began his practice in 1975. Joined by Mr. Blum in 1985, they continued to grow the practice, winning the praise of the community they served.
