Dr Garfinkel has been practicing obstetrics and gynecology in the community since 1993. His intensive one year fellowship in pelvic surgery and gyn oncology is rare among general OB/GYNs and this training makes him adept at both simple and complex GYN surgical procedures. Most notably, hospital based procedures such as hysteroscopies, laproscopic procedures and all types of hysterectomies. From his exposure to gyn oncology he has become a strong proponent of early detection of female cancers and he is an advocate of the HPV vaccine due to his involvement in some of the early clinical trials. Additionally, he is certified by ASCCP, American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, for his skills as a colposcopist for the diagnosis and identification of cervical cancer.
From the inception of One to One FemaleCare, Dr. Garfinkel envisioned a collaborative practice that featured both midwives and doctors practicing as one cohesive group. During his training in New York hospitals, he was exposed to working with midwives on labor and delivery. This naturally led him to philosophically support both hospital based and home birth midwives. One to One has proudly become the exclusive physician consultant and back up group for the majority of midwives in Morris County, NJ.
He is certified by AIUM, American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine. This strong interest in ultrasound has made One to One FemaleCare the only physician based private practice in Morris County to have this distinction. Within obstetrics he is comfortable with all hi-risk pregnancies, delivering twins, breech and Vaginal Birth After C-Section (VBAC) deliveries. As a VBAC advocate, Dr. Garfinkel and the entire practice are recognized as one of busiest VBAC groups in the area.
Dr. Garfinkel believes in offering his patients the latest technological advances in GYN procedures. He performs saline sonograms, hysteroscopy and HER OPTION ablations in the office setting. Out-patient he is skilled at all forms of minimally invasive procedures like Myosure and Novasure.
He is an enthusiastic champion for all women’s health care issues both GYN and OB. He offers his patients his knowledge, expertise, state of the art medical interventions in conjunction with his compassionate and caring personality.
