Dr. George Goldfarb
Dr. George Goldfarb has been practicing internal medicine for 24 years. It’s the career he envisioned for himself beginning as a young child.
As a primary care physician, Goldfarb enjoys the close relationships he has with patients. “I get to know my patients and their families,” he says.
He looks forward to teaching Quinnipiac medical students during their clinical placements. “You get them involved in caring from the beginning,” he explains. Completing clinical training in a primary care setting allows medical students to see how a practice works and interact with staff, Goldfarb says.
In addition to serving on the St. Vincent’s medical staff and the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine clinical faculty, Goldfarb works in a four-person private practice with several offices.
For Goldfarb, seeing a patient improve is one of the most rewarding aspects of his job. And his patients appreciate the care and attention they receive.
“The little thank-yous are worth a million dollars,” he says.
