Was in need of total knee replacement in both legs. Left knee was far worse than my right, so I agreed to have just my left knee done. I've never known anyone that's has knee replacement, do was at the mercy of the doctor to steer me down the best path. That was my mistake. Just glad I didn't allow him to do both knees at the same time as he recommended... End result, severe infection resulting in my knee swelling bigger than my waist and so badly infected that I wasn't even coherent by day 5. This guy actually argued with my home health nurse that there was nothing wrong even after he sent him pictures... The nurse encouraged me to go back to the hospital that night to the er. The doctor then reluctantly agreed to reopen my knee the next morning. The hospital actually an infectious disease doctor to my case even though Goldfarb insisted there was no infection... His arrogance and rude behavior was beyond my comprehension. Even had I not ended up with a severe infection, his plan was to keep me in the hospital for 4 days with no PT, transition to a wheel chair for 3 to 4 more days before transitioning to a walker. Since he used antiquated procedures such as a drain and staples, I wasn't able to even shower for over a week let alone do any real physical therapy. Not only was he an arrogant jerk, his while plan was just as flawed as his personality. Flash forward 3 years to today. I am 8 days after having a real doctor replace my right knee and I am already walking without as much as a cane. I was released the same day of surgery using a walker. Was in physical therapy 4 days later and down to using a cane on day 5. By day 7, I was able to flex my new knee to 111 degrees. It took me six months from surgery to bend my left knee thus far thanks to Goldfarb... I really didn't know how important researching a surgeon was until I didn't do my homework and suffered as a result. Never go with a doctor that still uses staples and verify their infection rates... Above all, stay away from this guy!!!

Botched surgery. Left me crippled for life. Denied anything went wrong. He was defensive, arrogant, seemed to be pleading for it to go away but the results are obvious. Lied. Contridicted himself. His record of the operation could have been written before as it reads like a model op. Still in pain after 6 months.

Totally botched surgery. So cocky, to hear him tell it everything was perfect.
February 22nd, 2015AWESOME DR!!

Dr Goldfarb was a wonderful surgeon and helped me in a very trying time in my life. I had a previous hip revision 6 weeks before I met him and I had fallen at my house and then began dislocating the prosthesis almost every other day. I am a young mother with two small children, one still a toddler, and Dr Goldfarb was very understanding of my needs and did his best to take care of me in a difficult situation. He performed a second surgery on me replacing the failed device and I am so thankful that I was able to meet him and get my young energetic life back on track! I would recommend him to anyone in need of orthopaedic treatment. He will not let you down. Now it is 6 months later and I'm back to work, back to chasing my kids, walking and living life!

Dr. Goldfarb was recommended to me as someone who would be able to correct and repair a 10 year old replaced knee which had been mis-alinged when it was put in.Dr. Goldfarb did everything he said he could do: he replace half of the knee, steighten my leg, improved my walk and reduced my pain. He is 100% into his work!
