Dear Current, Past and Prospective Patients,

As of January 16, 2020,  I am moved my practice to Dermatology Specialists of Monmouth county, 223 Monmouth Road, West Long Branch, NJ 07764.  

You can reach me at 732-870-2922.

At that office, I will be performing skin cancer and soft tissue surgery with local anesthesia.  I will not be performing hernia, breast or abdominal surgery.  Thank you for trusting me with your surgical health care needs.  I welcome prior and new patients at the West Long Branch office.

In addition, I have written a book called, “Japan Inscape.” The press release is as follows:

“What if I told you, your view of the world around you, could become happier and more complete, by day-dreaming along with photos and poems?”

Dr. Michael A. Goldfarb, a surgeon for over forty years, has just announced the upcoming release of 
his full-color specialty book entitled, Japan Inscape. A collection of photographs from a trip to Japan in 2016, Dr. Goldfarb wrote accompanying Haiku for many of the images. While some photographs are enjoyed without Haiku, some Haiku is also shared without photographs. The exquisite beauty of Japan is captured in the author’s lens and includes tributes to both historic and modern-day Japan. And, the specific structure of Haiku, a poetry form that Dr. Goldfarb has studied and written for many years, lends itself to the oft-times whimsical photos.  A teacher of surgery and an avid student of life, Dr. Goldfarb stresses the beauty of surgical procedures and patient outcomes.  His passion for observation and our relationship to everything around us is clearly present in the pages of Japan Inscape, a “thank you” to the people he met in Japan and to the majestic and magical visions he and his wife saw during their time there.  The sites photographed include cities and sites in the Kyoto area, Miyajima Island, Hiroshima, Nara, Kanazawa, Takayama, Mt. Fuji, Hakone, and Tokyo.  The mood alternates between chaotic city spaces and tranquil countryside, commonplace and monumental. The author’s intent is to inspire the reader to visit Japan and experience similar aesthetic highlights; to enjoy the gentle people and a culture very foreign to most in the western world. The hardcover book will be available November 22, through Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, and Books-a-Million. For more information regarding Michael A. Goldfarb M.D., visit or
