This was my first visit for a seasonal "checkup", because I started feeling me a little bit tired. After short administrative formalities and a reasonable waiting time, Dr Brian Goldfarb took care of me. He is a very nice physician whoreally takes care of you. I am French and for some medical questions, it happens that I cannot find the right words easily, but he was very patient and did his best to help me. Finally, he asked for relevant blood tests. Diagnosis was accurate. I warmly recommend Dr Brian Goldfarb as a great physician !

I had visited two urgent care providers before making an appointment with Dr Goldfarb. I had to wait 2.5 hours at the urgent care WITH an appointment, and was also misdiagnosed. I had absolutely no wait time with Dr Goldfarb andI made my appointment 2 hours prior. He was thorough in his examination and made me feel a lot more at ease. I will definitely be going back to Goldfarb as my PCP. Excellent and prompt service cannot be beat!

I went in for a general examination after a car accident. He seemed a little hasty and even though I complained about pain in my neck and back, he didn’t spend any time on them. He was nice but now I’m going to see a specialist.

Dr. Goldfarb is an outstanding doctor and I can't thank him enough. During my last annual checkup he was able to detect my cancer (multiple myeloma) with pretty much no symptoms. Thanks to him I was able to get a successfultreatment at such an early stage and write about it; I can say that he saved my life. Thank you!!

Dr. Goldfarb was friendly, insightful, and helpful. From booking to completing my Norwegian Seafarer's Medical Exam I was satisfied. The Medical Clinic of Houston is quite a busy office, so be sure to allow yourself plenty of time especially if you are going for a full physical type exam.

The office was closed due to cold weather- no one bothered to call me to cancel my appointment or notify me of the closure. 2 days in a row...but this is Houston & that's how they roll. Dr. Goldfarb is wonderful,but...I don't find this to be a professional way to run an office/business.

Setting up the appointment and getting all my information to the office before my appointment made everything easy. The wait to be called into the room and actually seen by the doctor was surprisingly short. Dr Goldfarb is charming man. Tooktime to talk to me and didn't rush or seem to be ready to move on as dr's I've had before. Overall very happy with my experience.

Although I had just booked the visit time for a consultation, Dr. Goldfarb took the time to listen to what my symptom's were and look me over very well. He told me what he felt would help, and it has, todayI feel much better and I think I will make a full recovery soon. I will return for a full physical in a couple of weeks. Thanks, Dr. Goldfarb.

I have been seeing Dr. Goldfarb for several years. He has always been very sensitive and responsive to my care. It is rare to find a doctor that you can open up to and in turn provides honest feedback without addinga fear factor before getting to the root cause of the problem. He has never ordered a test that was not called for, very honest. He is loyal to his patients and deeply cares about their health. His focus is to get you healthy and keep you healthy.
