Dr. Friedlander did what most doctors these days don't - he sat down and took the time to learn about mylife/family/medical history. Because he got the whole story, he was able to prescribe better treatment. I felt well-cared-for and highly recommend him.

I saw Dr. Friedlander for my annual physical as my prior primary care physician from the same practice recently retired. He took the time to talk through my concerns and his bedside manner is all anyone could ever ask for. Not insignificant when one considers the insurance constraints that medical professionals are subjected to. Definitely worth considering if you need a good primary care physician or gastroenterologist.

Dr. Friedlander is a truly wonderful physician. I have an odd diagnosis and he made it a point to do some research on his own. We still can't exactly determine what's wrong, but he is still looking into it and conferring with colleagues. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is very smart/ thoughtful. I am a physician myself and he really is a role model to being a doctor!

Dr Friedlander took the time to personally explain everything and make sure that I understood/had no follow-up questions. He then went out of his way to make sure that we got everything accomplished in one visit so I would not have to make any unnecessary repeat trips. A++

Dr. Friedlander really cares about his patients; listens without interrupting; never gives the impression of being rushed. He takes a very practical approach to treatment; pays attention to patients' ability to pay for prescription medication; and doesn't order unnecessary tests. All of the staff at Concorde Medical are courteous and professional, and I have never had to wait moe than five minutes. Highly recommended!

Dr Friedlander actually sat down with me first and listened extensively to my symptoms, which unfortunately is becoming quite rare these days - and I'm a physician myself! Thanks to him, I was spared uncomfortable tests and unnecessary medications recommended by another GI specialist whom I didn't entirely trust.

Great doctor! Explained everything, made me calm down, and instead of doing expensive tests or prescribing drugs, gave advice for how to live with IBS. He eased my fears that something was seriously wrong, explained what was causing my pain physiologically, and gave me advice on what to do if I experience it again. Great doctor! Especially compared to the others I visited for the same issue.

My primary Doctor is with Concorde and I love Dr. Ho, so when I realized I needed to see a specialist I trusted the Concorde Network of doctors. I was able to see Dr. Friedlander quickly and he was very gracious with his time. He didn't rush me, listed to everything I had to say, and even took time to explain all of the details to me. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs to see a gastroenterologist.

Best experience I've had in years. Dr. Friedlander was extremely professional, yet very personable. He genuinely listened to my concerns and offered extensive feedback relating to specific symptoms. Having an actual conversation in his homey office (rather than a couple of quick questions in an exam room) created a sense of comfort that is uncommon in a medical facility. I felt like a human and not a number. I would highly recommend Dr. Friendlander!

Dr Friedlander is a very experienced professional. He is also extremely pleasant and supportive. I am very glad that I chose him to replace my previous doctor, who was mainly interested in performing as many procedures as possible (and make as much money as possible). Not so with Dr Friedlander, whose interest is the good of the patient

I have been a patient of Dr. Friedlander's for over a decade. He is highly reliable for checkups and routine physicals but more importantly, I know he keeps a watchful eye any potential emerging or long-term health-related items. Part of Dr. Friedlander's utility is his network of highly regarded specialists. For example, on one occasion, a blood panel did not come back in the normal range. He was able to send me to the appropriate hematologist who saw me right away (everything turned out ok with the blood, but it was important to see the care he took in referring me to a specialist). He listens to me as a patient not only in terms of any potential ailments but to see how I'm doing overall. An example of this would be a discussion about work stress that led to improvements I could make in my posture, the type of chair I use, relevant core-building exercises, and taking the time to stand more during the day. Overall, Dr. Friedlander employs a pragmatic and reasonable approach to his practice of medicine and his patients are the net beneficiaries of this.
