Rachel Goldberg, Internal Medicine

"Rachel was one of the first senior residents I worked with as an intern. She received rave reviews before I started, but she exceeded all of my expectations. She is a great leader who allowed us to have so much independence on the wards while always making sure patients were safe. She forced us to take coffee and food breaks when we didn't feel like we could and demonstrated good time management skills. She will be a phenomenal cardiologist next year though I'll miss having her here at Hopkins."

In addition, she continues to be a strong advocate for resident well-being in all of her work."

She demonstrates the highest level of compassion, integrity, curiosity, and determination with each and every patient she encounters. I am constantly in awe of the care she provides."

"Dr. Kohn goes the extra mile for patients on an unrelenting basis. Her notes are detailed and descriptive and show the complex medical and social thinking she does about each patient and each of their problems. You look at her and wonder where she has the time and energy to care for patients like she does; As a co-resident, she keeps a sense of humor about her and always pitches in to help... Hopkins is lucky to have her."
