My visit with Dr. Goldfarb was great. I was a new patient, so had to fill out paper work. I arrived early to get that taken care of. Once that was submitted I was seen by the Doctor's assistant's right at8:00am, the scheduled time of my appointment. I must say that having 8:00am appointments was a huge plus as I was able to be in and out before work. The staff and assistant's were great. Once some preliminary tests were completed I stepped into Dr. Goldfarb's office where he did a few other tests and explained the results. He was extremely clear with my eye health and the lense prescription needed. I'll definitely be returning in a year for my checkup!

Dr. Goldfarb is very polite and funny. However, his staff sucks. They are extremely rude. The older white lady at the front has a terrible attitude as well as the male technician with the jacked up hair and glasses. The rudestpeople I’ve ever come across and, I will definitely not recommend to anyone.

Dr Goldfarb was amazing and conducted a very delicate procedure flawlessly and sent me feeling great after the pain I was in. I had booked a 2pm appointment but his staff saw that I had an emergency so he gave mehis first available appointment and then squeezed me in later to finish the procedure as I needed a ride home so I came back with a relative. And his nurse Grace was a godsend - she literally held my hand the whole time. The whole staff was amazing. I highly recommend him!!

Dr. Goldfarb was super nice and patient and really was positive and cared. Everyone in the office was well run. The only reason I had to wait is because there was an emergency patient who had to go ahead of mebut Dr. Goldfarb was very apologetic about it. I would recommend him highly.

I saw two technicians and the doctor and they were all professional and pleasant. I felt I received a thorough exam so that's good. There were wait time between each portion of the exam and I was at the office forabout three hours. I had someone waiting to drive me so I wasn't particularly happy about that. I have a couple of follow up visits and I'm hoping they won't take so long.

The only surprise was that I had to fill out paperwork as a first time patient when I have provided all of this information through ZocDoc. Later I saw all of the ZocDoc pages printed out; this makes me think office paperwork was unnecessary.
