Dr. Goldfarb was my allergist from when I was approximately 4 years old until I was about 12. He was always very kind even though he gave me up to 10 shots a week at one point...I only remember about 6. What I remember most about him was that he asked me how I felt, how I thought the medicine he gave me was working, if my symptoms were improving. I'm sure he asked my Mom as well but he really seemed to value my opinion even though I was so young. I didn't mind getting the shots, but I hated when he would fiddle with the old glass syringes before he injected me. They would be in a metal tray and he would move them around ....I guess it was the sound or the waiting. He was also very kind in that he didnt make us wait in the waiting room if there were a lot of sick kids in there he'd take me right in....i think he even let us go thru the house obce. He told us about matzo and explained to my Mom that I wasn't allergic to milk I just didn't like it and it waas good for me to drink water. I remember him very fondly...we need more doctors like him nowadays!!!
