During Your Visit
Dr. Goldfarb performs her own thyroid ultrasound in the clinic on all patients referred for thyroid nodules or goiter; it is an integral part of the consultation and simply an extension of the physical exam. As a surgeon, her overall experience and understanding of the disease process, both in and out of the operating room, allows her to uniquely evaluate abnormalities in the thyroid and create a personalized plan at the time of the visit.
Specific ultrasound characteristics will determine if you need a thyroid biopsy, which can be performed at the same visit. All ultrasound images will be reviewed in real-time so that you can truly visualize the thyroid nodule or goiter of concern.
All ultrasound images will be reviewed with you in real-time.
