Patient reviews for Dr. Michael Friedman
I always enjoy my visits with Dr Friedman. He provides a consistently high level of treatment.
Doc Friedman is awesome. The caring way he takes time to talk to patients. He's very calm and unassuming. Just a great guy.
Overall very disappointed. I was hoping he would have provided me more professional insight than "go to a sleep study" and giving me three options afterwards before referring me to another doctor. I am not sure where all the positive reviews are coming from. Wasted two co-pays and lots of x-ray and camera procedure charges (which by the way they told me I would be paying for - clearly false). Very disappointed, will not go back.
Although I had to wait a little longer than expected, I’m very happy with my initial visit with Dr. Friedman. It was well worth the wait.
The front desk, nurses, and Doctor are all amazing. They were kind and professional and very helpful. The Doctor is very kind and seemed interested in knowing and helping his patients.
Everyone was professional and explained every procedure very clearly. I was very pleased with all services from this office from check in staff to the doctor.
Dr. Friedman was excellent he made me feel at ease. He explained procedures in a manner that was easily understood.
Dr Friedman’s examination was very good & I felt he was very knowledgeable in his findings. He was very nice & professional. I highly recommend him.
i work with a lot of doctors professionally, and he is by far one of the nicest physicians i have ever seen. Very personable, and you can tell he cares.
Friendly, informative, caring staff, and was so quick!
This was my first time getting attend by Dr. Friedman. He was very kind, caring and sincere. I rally like how attentive he was.
Dr. Friedman is a great professional. His appointments are extremely quick, but after those 5 minutes, you know that you're definitely in good hands. He diagnosed me in 5-10 minutes, while it took months with other doctors. Surgery experience was also absolutely positive and in a month I could barely see the scar. Absolutely recommend!
Doctor Friedman is a pro. Don't hesitate to go with his team.
He's a nice person and knows his stuff, but I wish he would have engaged me in conversation more as a new patient. I feel like in the hour I was at the facility, I got five minutes of face time with him.
As always excellent service and very informative.
The doctor was very nice and efficient. I had an exam during my hour off from work and they were able to do a full diagnosis. Very nice office as well
He is always a great guy to talk to. Truly cares.
Dr. Friedman is a really credible ENT practitioner. I find him to be an innovator who is pushing the ENT world to try and accept new treatments which makes me feel good that I'm with him. Also, he gets to diagnoses and treatments quickly, doesn't waste time when he's with you.
Super friendly and efficient office. Great experience for new patient.
Dr Friedman was excellent. His CV speaks for itself. He had great bedside manner, he truly listened, and he genuinely cared. I’m so thankful that I contacted him for a second opinion.
The best of the best.
Very quick and to the point. Dr, Friedman is very gentle and patient and explains things clearly.
Dr.Friedman asked questions and took his time. He actually cares about his patients.
He was very professional, kind, friendly and informative. His support staff is equally professional, efficient, and friendly.
Today's visit with Dr. Friedman went quite smoothly. He's always courteous to me and performs whatever procedure I'm there for quickly and efficiently. Been a patient of his since early 1990's. That's testament enough. Would highly recommend him and his team to others.
Dr Friedman is an excellent doctor who is very kind, and caring. He works diligently at resolving your issues using the most current technology.
Dr. Friedman was cordial, frank and straight to the point.
He's quite good, but 2.5 hours for 10 minutes of time with the Dr is unacceptable.
Dr. Friedman is really an incredible doctor. He is a very kind man, answered all my questions and spent the time explaining the procedure.
He was very concise and polite. I knew going into my appointment he was an accomplished ENT doctor. I loved that this location on halsted had everything I needed to get my tests done efficiently. He checked out my sinuses, got a CT scan, had a hearing test and scheduled an appt with an allergist within 5 days, all within the same office, in the same day. The allergist is also in the same suite. Excellent doctors and loved the efficiency.
Dr. Friedman is kind, thoughtful and a talented medical professional. After having a horrible experience with a different doctor for my sleep apnea, I decided to come and see Dr. Friedman. He was truly wonderful and had a number of alternatives to help with my challenges. He approached the matter by providing clear information and it was clear he truly wanted to help and make a difference. I highly recommend!!
I have been a patient here for years. DrFriedman is outstsnding. The office has improved its efficiency significantly
Staff keep me updated every few minutes about what was happening. Great experience.
Doctors nurse is very pleasant and efficient! Very helpful and made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Friedman and staff are the best at what they do. If you have any snoring or sleep apnea issues, you need to see this team.
Dr. Friedman and his staff are very personable. He took the time to discuss my symptoms and ran tests/had a CT scan done right in his office during my first visit. Very convenient and time-saving. He has literature and educational videos on hand for the different procedures offered. He explains in detail what to expect during treatment.
Very professional, listened to my concerns, answered my questions, explained what was next.
I think he is incredibly kind and warm. He put me at ease, even though some of the tests were uncomfortable. His staff is efficient and nice - altogether a very good medical experience - I will definitely recommend Dr. Friedman. Susan A
Dr. Friedman seemed very knowledgable regarding my case and offered me a variety of treatment options.
Doctor and his assistant were highly professional and knowledgeable.
Felt like I was in the right hands , and finally going to get my issue taken care of! He is VERY thorough!!
Was really looking forward to my meeting with Dr. Friedman but it fell flat. From the moment I went in to the examination room everything felt incredibly rushed. The nurses were asking me questions (all of which I had written down on the pre-exam forms) when immediately in came Dr. Friedman. He had another doctor? trailing behind him who he didn't even introduce. He stood in the corner. He hastily asked what my issues were and before I could even finish he started talking and told me he was going to do an exam up my nose. I was so out of sorts, I didn't even let out a breath explaining my symptoms when he started putting a camera up my nose. I'm sure he's a very good doctor but I felt he didn't even hear me out. After the doctor left the nurses asked me to sign a release form that was supposed to be signed PRIOR to him sticking the camera up my nose. That's crazy. I didn't even sign anything before but apparently I was supposed to. I'll be returning (just because I've already started the process) but if I was a first time client I wish I'd looked elsewhere.
I think Dr Friedman is a superb doctor. His staff is friendly and tries to please the patient. Whatever time I had to wait was well worth it.
He was kind and patient. He took good care of me and I trust him to do my surgery.
Friendly and professional. Understood my needs!
Always a great visit with Dr. Friedman. I just wish I had listened and came back alot sooner!
Dr. Friedman is one of the kindest most gentle and most caring doctor you will ever meet, all while being extremely knowledgeable and truly top in his field. He unlike the doctors I have been to actually listened to what my problems and was able to find solutions for me, going through what each of my options are not forcing me into anything. I have complete trust in Dr. Friedman And highly recommend him to all!
Pleasant, competent, thorough, professional
