Thank you for visiting this site.  My goal is to provide you with a proven method that I believe will improve your life, empower you and give you a sense of fulfillment.

The method I'd like to share with you is called OPTIFAST®.  It is a safe, reliable, and effective weight loss program that is medically supervised, and that caters to your individual needs. 

Over 1 million people have benefited from OPTIFAST® since it was first developed in 1974.  My patients routinely tell me they have more energy, higher self-esteem, a better lifestyle, more control over their lives, and are genuinely happy throughout the duration of the program, and beyond.

I truly believe that if you are ready to make a change in your life, and if you are ready to get rid of that extra weight once and for all, this is the program for you. 

I will provide you with the wealth of my experience, my support, and a view to a better future.  I look forward to seeing you, and turning your life around.





As a practitioner of family medicine in Toronto, Dr. Goldfarb has an established 40-year history in patient care.

During his first 12 years of practice, Dr. Goldfarb increasingly realized the dire need for a sensible approach to significant weight loss. After researching the marketplace, he chose OPTIFAST® and began offering it to the pubic in 1990. As a weight loss coach and insightful counselor, he has assisted over 2000 people.

He feels that OPTIFAST® works, and that it represents a safe and healthy alternative to those who need to lose a significant amount of weight and who want to learn how to keep it off.

What is essential to this program, and the reason it works so well, is that it is individualized to each patient.  It is tailored to every patient's specific situation, weight loss goals, and co-existing health problems.  As well, it is conducted on a one-on-one basis with Dr. Goldfarb at his Toronto office. This way, any concerns that arise along the way are discussed and worked through.

Dr. Goldfarb has made a commitment to this program and the individuals interested enough to embark upon it. He invites those involved to keep seeing him, regardless of their program status.

His overriding desire is for his patient's long term health and happiness.

Dr. Goldfarb’s medical degree is from University of Toronto. After spending several years in research and surgery, he decided on family medicine because of the opportunity to relate to, and care for, people in a more direct fashion.
