During Your Visit
Dr. Goldfarb performs her own thyroid ultrasound in 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.
