Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Goldfarb "I believe in personally giving patients the information, time and support they need to understand their conditions and the surgery or other treatment indicated.

I encourage questions and allow patients to be involved in decision making in all aspects of their care. 

Each patient is an individual, some with underlying medical conditions, some with significant family or employment responsibilities which need to be worked out.

In my referrals to physicians of other specialties I try as much as possible to suggest not only a highly qualified and experienced physician, but also a physician with whom my patient will feel comfortable."

Dr. Goldfarb performed bilateral mastectomies on me 17 years ago. I can’t speak highly enough of her. She was always professional, with a considerate, kind bedside manner. She worked seamlessly as a team with my plastic surgeon. I felt very blessed to have her as my doctor.

Dr. Goldfarb performed a biopsy/lumpectomy over 20 years ago. I'll never forget that when she did the node procedure, she made it a point to put the drain where it would be most comfortable.
