My consultation with Dr. Friedman was very personal and professional. I was given xrays in a timely manner and his prognosis was sound. He provided me with the information necessary to heal my injury as well as giving me additional information for follow up with my insurance provider.

He was very thorough and genuinely concerned about my foot issues. I did not feel rushed or that I was taking too much of his time like some other drs can make you feel.

I ALWAYS RESEARCH A DOCTOR BEFORE SEEING ANYONE NEW AND HE WAS UP TO ALL EXPECTATIONS!! VERY PLEASED WITH MY VISIT WITH HIM! HE SEEMED VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND VERY NICE MANNERISMS. BUT....I DID NOT LIKE THE WAIT TIME- AT ALL-APPROX 45MIN-- ESP IF YOU ARE IN PAIN----IF YOU HAVE A SCHEDULED APPMT-"STICK TO IT"------OR WHY SCHEDULE??? THE OFFICE EXPECTS THE PATIENTS TO BE ON TIME ! THANK YOU FOR LETTING US VOICE OUR OPINION!

The office was packed but I still got back to see Dr. Friedman within 20 minutes. He was very easy to talk to and had good insight for my problem. I really like his conservative approach to treatment as he explainedthat surgery is always the last option if it's not absolutely necessary. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.
