I had a double knee replacement. I read the reviews and do agree that after surgery he is in a hurry to go to the next patient but he will talk to you if you ask him. I feel he is a very good surgeon. he just needs to work on his bedside manner
Dr. Goldfarb was very amiable prior to surgery but was "done" with me when surgery was over, did not want to approve our request to go to a rehab center because "85% of his patients go directly home.". It appears his statistics are more important than what is best for the patient, My hip dislocated & I spent the holidays in the hospital & then a rehab ctr. I think this could have been avoided. We also felt he was not totally trustworthy in his "advice." He never folowed up.

I had 3 knee surgeries in 5 months by Dr Goldfarb. Hes the kind of doctor that's hard to find. By that I mean, one that is upfront with you. If you want a doctor that's going to tell you the truth, he should be your doctor. I was a bit worried at first, but come to the realization that this is what I needed in a doctor. A doctor that loves what he does. He seems to stay up on the changes in technology and advancements in knee replacements. I would recommend him to anyone needing knee surgery.

Leg injury and 'pop' behind my knee resulted in pain and inability to straighten my leg. Dr. Goldfarb did an xray, reviewed it and the notes that had been taken and entered the room announcing he already had the diagnosis, a torn calf muscle. He said it wasn't my knee and told me there were no restrictions and it would heal in a couple months. An MRI ordered by another doctor 5 weeks later showed a stress fracture of the tibia, torn meniscus and bakers cyst. I walked on a fracture for 5 weeks.

Dr. Goldfarb repaired my son's ACL tear in 2011. As a result of our very positive experience I chose to have him do a complete Bi-lateral Knee Replacement in June of 2012. I was back at work in six weeks in August, 2012. In February of 2014 I slipped on black ice and broke my right ankle and a bone in my right knee. Dr. Goldfarb repaired my ankle and I am up again. I highly recommend him.

I broke my ankle. He decided amputation was the correct procedure. He almost made it required as he ignored treating the staph wound I got in his office for a month. He put the ankle in a fixator but continued to maintain that amputation was the best (read easies) procedure, despite obvious signs that there were other viable options After wasting 5 months I sought a second opinion and am well on the way to being healed. I would have lost my foot under his continued care.ii

Per my mom, he was her interim knee care doc while her regular doc took some time off. She said, he was good, but his assistant did all the work.
