Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Goldfarb "David Goldfarb, D.O. is a specialist who wears many hats, an innovator and an inventor. The first Medical Director of the Voice Center at the Medical Center at Princeton. He introduced state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosing vocal problems to Princeton. Previously, patients had to travel to Philadelphia or New York City to access this technology, which uses an oscillating strobe light to obtain a detailed, objective evaluation of vocal cord activity. Dr. Goldfarb invented a laryngeal pacemaker to restore movement to the paralyzed vocal cords. He has obtained a patent for this still experimental procedure. Dr. Goldfarb is board certified in Otolaryngology. He is chairman of the Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery Department at the University Medical Center at Princeton and Clinical Instructor of Otolaryngology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia."
