Patient Comments (2)
Newburgh, NY |
Had many problems after the operation. He missed things another doctor saw who was surprised that Goldfarb missed them. Lost confidence in Goldfarbs ability.
in Newburgh, NY |
He knows nothing about how diabetes affects the eyes. He could not diagnose my blurry vision, referring me back to my endocrinologist. He asked me what to do. I said, You're asking me?! He's supposed to be an expert! He kept referring to my endocrinologist as your physician, and I thought, YOU'RE a physician! My suggestion is that Dr. Goldfarb revisit the definition of ophthalmologist as opposed to optometrist and either learn about diabetes and vision or change careers.
