Dr. Michael Goldfarb, MD
After residency, I was an Army surgeon and a Major, and led the development of Kevlar body armor and the standard for bullet proof. Since 1974 I have been in practice and now specialize in breast and soft tissue tumors. I was Chairman and Program Director of the Department of Surgery at MMC for 14 years. I am a Professor of Surgery and a Governor of the American College of Surgeons. I have been selected for many consecutive years as a "Top Doctor" in New Jersey and the New York Metropolitan area. Qualifications, experience, technical skills and judgement are key to a successful outcome. I have kept records of my outcomes that are among the best in the nation.
