in Newark, NJ |
This doctor is a quack. Prescribes antibiotic/steroid drops for eye infection in one eye and doesn't explain to me, the patient, why drops have to be used in both eyes and for how long does patient, me, have to used prescribed drug. the package insert clearly states "do not use" for a prolonged period of time. Am I, the patient supposed to guess how long I'm supposed to use a drug prescribed to me by a "so-called" doctor. I think this doctor (Goldfeder) is a quack and I stand by my reasoning!

This guy is a total quack. Tries to blame an eye infection on a trauma injury that happened 7 years ago. Prescribes prescription eye drops and doesn't explain why he is prescribing for both eyes and how long to use prescription when drug use insert clearly states that this prescription antibiotic/steroid combination eye drops should not be used for a prolonged period of time. Dr. Quack here gives me 2 refills and doesn't state (on the prescription) how long it should be taken. BiggestQuackEver!

Although Dr. Goldfeder is good, I will never step foot in this office again due to the frustration of providing inaccurate information regarding insurance and billing. Ending up paying a few hundred dollars even though we have insurance coverage.
