Dr. Goldfarb is a wonderful doctor, and a very personable person. I have used him for about five years. Robert Prywitch

Dr. Goldfarb has operated on my oldest daughter, age 6, three times for polydactyly. He will also be operating on my infant soon for the same thing. He has amazing bedside manner and truly cares about each of his patients. He did a great job making my daughters hands and feet fully functional and normal looking. He is truly talented and trusted in my eyes. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Charles Goldfarb performed carpal tunnel releases on both of my wrists as well as performed surgery on both of my elbows for pinched ulnar nerves. He recommended doing the wrist and elbow on the same arm first, then the second arm three weeks later. Everything went very smoothly and the surgeries were complete successes with negligible pain and discomfort. After seven weeks the scars are very light and should nearly disappear in the future. Dr. Goldfarb was always very polite and caring.
I would have to say that Dr.Goldfarb Is by far the best hand surgeon out there. He built a robotic arm for a kid at Shriners. And he did all of Yadir Molina hand surgeries . I wonder why Yadi picked Dr. Goldfarb when the Cardinals just signed their orthopedic contract with Mercy. I guess it's because they want the best for our star pitcher. The best is Dr. Goldfarb. Doctors get busy and seem like they don't care but they do. I don't need friend just as long as he is the best at what he does!

I saw Dr Goldfarb three times in the past 2 plus years,,in office needle procedures ,,,Dupuytrons contracture ,and he seemed cordial , however not very interested in exploring further treatment that might help my condition. Two weeks ago saw Goldfarb once more for second opinion re; very serious MRSA infection of right index finger treated by Dr Moore of Barnes hand resconstruction team. Goldfarb a cold fish almost hostile , he barely gave me the time of day and ushered me out .

anxiously looking forward to this appointment to Dr G was over an hour delayed (no apology). He shook hands and his hands were very wet (no apology). needed to discuss neurological & physical problematic left wrist/hand that compromises everyday life. Dr. G asked 2 questions neither about his occupation or compromising issues. Abruptly announced surgery re. plate/screws w/ no details. He ended visit in 6 min. Had to be persuaded to stay to ask our pertinent questions. Horrible experience
