Part­ner­ing with patients is vital, edu­ca­tion of cur­rent med­ical best prac­tices and dis­cus­sion of goals is how health and longevi­ty can be achieved. Con­tin­ued inter­ac­tion with patient and med­ical staff is how those goals are preserved.

For Our Medicare Patients

Effec­tive Jan­u­ary 1, 2021, Dr. Farb­stein will tran­si­tion their Medicare (age 65+) prac­tice to serve the more com­pre­hen­sive patient and well­ness focused Medicare Advan­tage plans, pro­vid­ing care to Medicare-eli­gi­ble patients enrolled in qual­i­fied Medicare Advan­tage plans.
