Dr. David Goldfarb, DO, FACS

Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor (ENT)

842 State Rd Princeton NJ, 08540


David Goldfarb, DO, FACS is a specialist who wears many hats – an innovator and an inventor. 
The first Medical Director of the Voice Center at the University Medical Center at Princeton, he introduced state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosing vocal problems to Princeton. Previously, patients had to travel to Philadelphia or New York City to access this technology to obtain a detailed, objective evaluation of vocal cord activity.

Dr. Goldfarb recently invented a new experimental wearable device for treating obstructive sleep apnea. The device works by restoring the normal resting tone to throat and tongue muscle to keep the airway open (patent pending).

Dr. Goldfarb invented a laryngeal pacemaker to restore movement to paralyzed vocal cords. He has obtained a patent for this experimental procedure.

Dr. Goldfarb is board certified in Otolaryngology. He was chairman of the Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery Department at the Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center from 1994-2020 and he is a Clinical Instructor of Otolaryngology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. He was been appointed by the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery to several committees such as the credentials committee and the Medical Devices and Drug Committees.
