Dr Goffman Is Truly a healer. I had a painful eyelash stuck in my eye over a holiday weekend. When I called Dr. Goffman's answering service and left a message, he returned my call himself and told me to meet him at his office. He removed the lash and treated the eye. It was a great relief from the pain, and I am so grateful .

Dr G

I have been a patient for many years, and have been thru numerous eye problem during that time. Dr G diagnosed my macular issue which required surgery, he hooked me up with a great surgeon and monitored the situation until I has recovered, he has done my PRK surgery with great success, he even did my eyelid surgery and I had no pain or bruising afterward.... I would not go to anyone else as he is the best!!
