Patient Comments (2)
in Houston, TX |
I've known Dr. Goldfarb since we trained together at the Ben Taub Hospital some 40 years ago. He is, and has always been, an exceptional physician. Careful, thoughtful, compassionate and knowledgeable. Having been around doctors all of these years, I have a good idea about the qualities I want in my physicians and he checks all the boxes in bold print. He's been my urologist for more than 25 years and he astutely diagnosed my mod't grade prostate cancer (despite a low, and easily normal PSA) A+

He has saved me from prostate cancer (25 yrs), and then kidney cancer (20 yrs). He is the best urologist in Houston in my opinion.
