I was at the office for over an hour and probably saw the doctor for less than five minutes in total. Parts of the office feel commercial and gimmicky as they have you watch a news spot on Dr. Friedman doing a particular procedure. It would have been nicer to feel like it was a conversation rather than him talking at the patient for the bulk of it. Perhaps the visit is different with other doctors, but the rest of the staff were friendly.

Dr. Michael is a wonderful man. I always get the impression that he hears me and really cares. He has an excellent support staff that allows him to be at his best. They are always nice and helpful to me. He has everything in his office nevessary for diagnosis, which includes a scope for ears and nose as well as a CT scanner and his own audiologists and allergists. He also fixes acid reflux and sleep apnea. I intend to see him about my acid reflux on my next visit.

Went to a sleep Doctor 3 years ago. That doctor didn't bother to look down my nose. Dr Freidman did and told me I had a slight deviated septum. I was able to see it on the monitor of his camera view. Wow...that explains a lot. I like that I'm being offered options rather than just pushing CPAP. Wish I would have found Chicago ENT 3years ago.

I have been dealing with a severe sinus infection for 30 days now. Horrible face and head pain 24/7. I had previously been to 2 other doctors and the emergency room over the course of 30 days, all of which netted zero results. Dr. Freidman immediately made me feel like he could help.. Asked the right questions and actually listened to what I had to say as well. He started a treatment program immediately and we've scheduled follow up visits to track progress. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is finally going to fix the problem. Only time will tell, but I do have confidence that I am finally with someone who both cares and can actually help.

I am so exceedingly impressed with the quality of care at Chicago ENT. I have visited both the Halsted and Skokie offices, which are well lit and comfortable, as far as doctor's offices go. The receptionists are quick and kind, though one woman couldn't answer all my questions, she assured me that she would have a more senior staff member call me back. Dr. Friedman himself is an excellent, caring doctor with the best bedside manner I've ever experienced. He has treated other members of my family and his patience, attentiveness and calm personality are unmatched. I would recommend him without any reservation. To those who complain about fees, I would cite the state of our healthcare system and the fact that Dr. Friedman is a specialist. I have never been surprised by any charges I received. I hope to not need his services again, but should someone I know need an ENT he is the first doctor I could gladly suggest.

Too rushed there was an army of people who came in and obviously interns, the doctor didn't have time to listen to me because he was too busy talking to his interns. And it's more than likely I won't listen to his recommendations and find another specialist for this area.

While I had high hopes for this, the lack of response/follow-up after faulty machinery was provided for an at-home evaluation shows little concern for maintaining a relationship.

Dr. Friedman's staff apologized for the delay, which I appreciated. However, seeing Dr. Friedman himself did not seem necessary - I knew that I needed a hearing test for evaluation for the need for hearings aids, so I could have seen Dr. Beeg directly.

The wait time to see the doc was absurd and disrespectful to me and my time. As the patient I am expected to be on time, the doc should be too. It makes me seriously reconsider whether or not this is the right practice for me.
