I was in a great deal of pain when I started with Dr Goldfarb. First I was able to het some relief from the very first epidural treatment. I will be proceeding with the remaining treatments for sure. Once I got started with the office, I have been very pleased with just about every aspect of the experience. They have been great about scheduling and working my person schedule. What was the best thing is the way that Dr Goldfarb explained everything prior to, during and then post treatment.

Dr.Goldfarb gave me my life back with two epidurals in my lower back. I've gone from a pain level of 9 to less than 1. I found him to be very professional and thorough in handling my case. The office staff was friendly and efficient and the out patient clinic where the procedures are done is First Class in appearance and the medical staff the nicest and most professional one could want taking care of you.

I waited 2 weeks to get an appointment. The office was an hr and a half behind schedule. Dr. Goldfarb was clearly in a hurry, and was the most arrogant individual I've dealt with in healthcare setting hands down. He didn't want to answer questions and began to walk out of the door as we were addressing my health concerns regarding an epidural. He was distracted, and rude at times during our brief encounter. Had no idea what my medical history was but felt comfortable making clinical decisions?
