I've been a patient of Dr Goodfriend for many years and find him a genial, common sense, and knowledgeable Physician. I believe his patients are very well cared for. He is patient and makes sure to answer all questions thoroughly. This is a rare trait for most physicians. I have recommended Dr Goodfriend to many.

I have had cataract surgery on both eyes by Dr. Goodfriend. The first was in 2009 and the second was this year. Both surgeries went very well and I cannot praise Dr. Goodfriend's experience, bedside manner, pre-op. telephone call and subsequent follow up enough. If only other physicians that I've had contact with over the years had this attitude, it would have made life a lot less complicated. Thank you, Dr. goodfriend!
