Dr Friedman has been my primary doctor for over 25 years and has seen me thru lots of generic ailments and was very instrumental in getting me in quickly to see an oncologist when I had breast cancer. His recommendation sentme to the best breast cancer doctor/surgeon in Dallas. I'm now a 14 yr survivor and I wouldn't trust my well-being/health to anyone else. Thank you Dr. Friedman!!!

Dr. Friedman is a very thorough and caring physician who has taken care of me for more than twenty five years. He is a very good diagnostician who has never made me feel that he was rushed. In addition Dr. Friedman’sassistant, Kisha, also follows Dr. Friedman’s lead in making visits to this office a wonderful experience. Lastly, Dr. Friedman, in contrast to many physicians, has always prescribed medication only when he is absolutely certain that medication is indicated. I highly recommend Dr. Friedman without reservation.

Dr. Lawrie Friedman is indeed a doctor by every sense of the word, in terms of care and empathy. He listens and feels your worries and concerns. He has a great sense of humor, I love his Parrot, perched on hishands while I was about to see him. Indeed I found my Personal Care Physician, he is the Doctor! Go see him and make him yours.
