I LOVE Dr. Friedman and also Athena who drew my blood and took my blood pressure. Felt extremely comfortablr. Excellent experience
I have a history of trauma and I made Dr. Friedman aware of it while we spoke before the exam. She was great about it. She was gentle, made me feel at ease, told me everything she was doing, and kept up a conversation with me the whole time which helped take my mind off of what was happening and made me engaged. I think she's great...takes a lot for me to say that! Will definitely be sticking with her.

I would highly recommend Dr. Friedman. She is an excellent doctor, who is extremely knowledgeable and who makes you feel very comfortable during the appointment.
Dr. Friedman is very thorough, professional and approachable. She takes her time in the first consult to ask about your family history and about your general health and answers any questions or concerns you may have.
Dr.Friedman was very professional yet warm, she listened and did not seem rushed. This was a first visit so it's hard to tell of the doctors skill, but my impressions are favorable. Office staff was also professional, and made me feel comfortable. There was a descrepency in the time of appt. I had made it for 1:30 and the office had it down for 1:00 zoc Doc showed 1:30. The receptionist was apologetic and accommodating.
Great bedside manner and fast and efficient services!
Dr. Friedman took the time to talk with me before my exam. She heard my concerns and gave me great feedback & her honest opinion. She was easy to talk to and very casual. Overall a great experience.
Dr. Friedman was so warm and nice. She made me feel so comfortable. I'm so glad I found her. Highly recommended!
This is my 2nd annual appointment with her, and she is fabulous, makes you feel comfortable and like a person not another patient.
Dr. Friedman was amazing! I just moved from DC and was looking for a new GYN in NYC. I have never felt so comfortable with a doctor like I did with her. She was very knowledgeable and took time to answer all my questions and concerns. She has such a great sense of humor that you sometimes need when visiting a doctor.
Although the wait was a little long Dr. Friedman was great! Hands down best GYN in Manhattan. She met with me before my exam and made me feel very comfortable.
I loved her! She's very laid back, addresses any concerns you may have and very personable.
I thought she was pleasant, very well mannered, and the visit was quite short. I'd recommend her to other women!
very comfortable, highly recommended.
Very happy with my first visit. I appreciated the time she took in her office to discuss history. Appointment went smoothly and Dr. Friedman walks you through it all.
Dr. Friedman possesses many attributes you look for in a doctor: knowledgeable, friendly, good listener, and makes the patient feel comfortable. Highly recommended.
Professional yet warm. Friendly office staff, clean and modern facility. Recommended!
I was seen right at my appointment time and everyone at the office from the receptionist to the medical assistant to Dr. Friedman was extremely friendly and helpful. Dr. Friedman made me feel comfortable right before and during the examination and definitely took the edge off my GYN visit, which can hardly ever be described as pleasant! I will definitely be returning to her for future checkups.
I felt like she was just trying to sell me birth control. She was nice though and the appointment was quick. I just didn't get a genuine feeling from her.
Good environment. Good doctor. Easy to discuss your problems

Overall, I found it was a positive experience. Dr. Friedman is very personable, professional and down to earth. I did not feel awkward asking her questions.
She's great. Really took the time to get to know me and get my history. Very personable. Highly recommend.
The visit was great, but follow-up was hard. Phone messages were not returned and neither was an email sent on their system.
Dr. Friedman was great! She kept it very casual and I felt comfortable talking to her about any concerns I had. The exam was quick and painless. I was out of there in about 40 minutes. I will definitely continue seeing her!
She is great ! She listened to all my concerns, gave my very educated and pacience advice. She is definitelly going to be my OBG in NYC
Dr. Friedman, to me, is the best. She's very professional and easy to talk to.
she is amazing!!
Dr. Friedman was very nice, approachable and made an uncomfortable experience fly by. I love that she sits down with you before having you prepare for the exam. She is patient and asks if you have any questions...you never feel rushed. The wait time was non-existent and the exam went by fast. She is now my GYN. This was my first time at her office and I am so happy I found someone I feel comfortable with!
She was very easy to talk to and listened to my situation without being judgmental or minimizing my problems, and discussed a range of treatment options. I am switching to her for my gyn doctor from now on.
I was very impressed with Dr. Friedman. This was my first visit. She was very personable and put me at ease. I liked that she spoke with me in her office first to go over the reason for my visit and answer any of my questions. I was in and out of the office in less then 40mins. The office is nice, clean and organized. Very convenient location.
I feel very comfortable with her as my Doctor. I can see she has my best interests in mind for health. I will also reccomend her to friends.
Dr. Friedman was truly very professional and efficient. She was easy to talk to and very helpful indeed. I would recommend her any time.
Rachel is very comforting. The office waiting room is clean and bright. She was honest with me about a potential problem I might have late in life because I have type 1 diabetes. I have seen other OBGYNs in the past and they have never mentioned it. I am really grateful that she could be open and honest even if the news is not the best.
very nice doctor, professional, great bedside manner
Extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Made me feel very comfortable - I'd definitely recommend her.
She is the sweetest person in the world.
Appointment went quick. She's very professional and personal.
It's so nice to be able to be so open with your gyno. I was able to ask questions that I would NEVER EVER have discussed with my previous gyno. She was an absolutely lovely and warm person. Thank you!
Extremely polite and professional. Felt very comfortable with her
Professional, helpful, kind. Didn't talk down to me. She made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Friedman is thorough, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant and understanding. The new office and staff are great. I spent a lot of time looking for the right gyn for me. Found!
I was a little nervous for my first OBGYN appointment in the city (recently moved). But the wait was pretty quick and Dr. Friedman takes a minute to talk to you in her office (fully clothed!) so you're not telling her your life story with your legs in the air. It's a nice touch I appreciated. She was quick, kind, and courteous. Will definitely reschedule for my annual next year.
Very professional and personable. She answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease. Highly recommended.
Dr. Friedman is great! I've waited a long, long time before seeing a obgyn in new york and I feel like I've found the right one! She's very professional and friendly. Exams are quick but all my questions are answered thoroughly.
I really liked Rachel. She had a very nurturing/caring demeanor and she was easy to talk to. She was very concerned about making me comfortable and answering all my questions. I thought the office was run efficiently as well. I will come back for my next annual appointment.
Dr Friedman was very friendly and engaging. She took the time to talk to me and access to my needs. Was very supportive and helpful in discussing various birth control methods.
I loved Dr. Friedman - I found out I was pregnant shortly after seeing her, and because she doesn't deliver babies (I so wish she did) I have to find an OB. Even still, she followed up into my pregnancy, returned calls promptly, at times calling just to check in and see how I was feeling, and she even called with my Friday test results on Saturday (results were fine and she still felt compelled to call). She is a fantastic doctor, and I really wish she would deliver babies as well!
She no longer delivers so unfortunately you have to find a different OB. I also waited a really long time before the appt (nearly an hour).
She was so fantastic. Friendly, welcoming, reassuring and a nice sense of humor. I loved her!
Dr. Friedman is kind and personable while also very professional. I left feeling like I received a thorough exam without feeling at all uncomfortable.
Dr. Friedman was an interesting visit to say the least. My wait time wasn't terrible, and the front desk staff was courteous. I felt bad because the receptionist got barked at by the Doctor for not having her bagel ready for him. Kind of uncomfortable and definitely seemed beyond the scope of receptionist duties. Maybe she was having a bad day! The check up, however, was thorough and professional, though once again her manner was very blunt, though there wasn't anything to be blunt about. New York is too big of a city to settle for a rude OBGYN, but if you need a quick appointment and to get the job done, you'll get what you need.
After seeing several OBGYNs that operated like drive-through pap smear joints, I was delighted to meet Dr. Friedman. She was thorough, knowledgeable, and kind. I've already recommended her to friends.
Everyone was friendly and helpful even though they were busy. Dr Friedman was very professional and lovely to deal with, and also her medical assistants. I would definately recommend her.
Rachel is friendly and approachable. I think she's great.
Made for a pleasant visit!
Dr. Friedman was great - she listened to all of my concerns, updated with me information and gave me a good idea of what I needed to know. Very good bedside manner and was friendly and approachable.
Dr Friedman was very knowledgeable, interested in me, took her time, and bothered to meet and talk to me in her office before examining me. But unfortunately, the doctor didn't get my appointment from Zoc Doc didn't get into the Dr's system. It did all work out, and Zoc Doc followed up in a great way. All around, I'd say this is a great way to handle finding drs and making appts.
very friendly, easy to talk to, made me very comfortable and did not rush me. professional, but also down to earth
Dr. Friedman was great! She made sure to listen to my concerns and offer different solutions.
The office is clean and efficient. Dr Friedman was polite, empathetic and had a good bedside manner.
I am thrilled to have found Dr. Friedman. I feel that I am now in excellent hands. The office environment and staff are also great.
Dr. Rachel Friedman was really nice, we went into her office and it was my first time meeting her. She asked me if I was there for any concerns and was really patient and understanding while I explained my issues. Doctors always make me a little nervous but she really made me feel at ease while I was there, I will definitely be going back.
I have been jumping from one gynecologist to another for the last several years. A couple of switches were due to insurance changes, but most of the time I just wasn't happy with the in-and-out treatment I received. This was my first visit with Dr. Friedman, and I found her to be warm, friendly, funny, and smart. Moreover, she did not make me feel rushed. She asked several questions and listened patiently to my responses. She integrated professionalism with a down-to-earth bedside manner that put me at ease almost immediately. I got the sense that she genuinely cares about her patients and, because of all these things, I'll definitely go back for seconds!
Very pleasant and professional; great bedside manner; nice office staff
The wait was quick and the staff was friendly and attentive. Dr. Friedman was very personable and I will definitely see her again.
Dr Friedman is a great doctor! She takes her time to answer all questions and has great bedside manner.

Dr. Friedman is knowledgeable, kind and takes as much time as necessary to answer all of my questions, address my concerns and discuss any other issues. She is an excellent doctor! It is a privilege to be her patient.
Very pleased. She is very kind and gentle. She does not rush you. Good listener.
I would recommend Dr. Friedman to all my girlfriends. She's one of the kindest, thorough and professional doctors I've met.
I had been through 2 others before i found Dr Friedman and i wont be looking any further. She is fantastic and super easy to talk to. Very smart and kind. Excited to add her to my list of ZocDocs!
Great office, great desk staff, efficient and attentive support team, warm but trustworthy style.
Incredibly friendly, personable, even funny (so rare). Answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable. I've found my new gyno!
Let's just say after living in NYC for the last 6 years, I've finally found MY OB/GYN. She was amazing, comforting, and used the right tactic to relax me during my exam. She's the best!
Outstanding! Dr. Friedman was a fantastic listener, kind-hearted and extremely knowledgeable. I appreciated her ability to provide several options for my various medical issues. I will for sure return to her practice.
The office called me ahead of time to let me know Dr. Friedman was running behind schedule and that my appointment would be a little later. I thought that was great, since I could plan accordingly nd come in a little later. Dr. Friedman took a lot of time to get to know me, since it was my first visit. All questions were addressed. The exam itself was as quick and comfortable as possible. I would totally recommend Dr. Friedman to all my friends who are looking for a gyn!!
The office was professional, clean, and very efficient. Dr. Friedman was easy to talk to and made an effort to make me feel comfortable. I was there first thing in the morning, so I didn't have to wait long in the waiting room or in the exam room. One of the best doctor's office experiences I've had in NYC.
Dr. Friedman is wonderful! attentive, concerning, and thorough. I'd recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Friedman was great--very nice, and made me feel comfortable. The wait in the exam room was a bit long, but overall great experience.
Such a wonderful experience from the moment I stepped out of the elevator. Great, friendly staff and Dr. Friedman is sweet, comforting and approachable. Finally found my new doctor and couldn't be happier!
Really long wait time which is always disappointing. But Dr. Friedman was friendly and made my feel comfortable as a patient, even if my appointment didn't last more than 15 minutes (and I'd waited well over 30 minutes). The office was professional and clean overall. My main compliant is the long wait. I also would've liked it if Dr. Friedman took more time to learn about my medical history and health needs/goals as a first-time patient of hers.
She was very laid back and personable, which made me feel more comfortable.
Really great experience! I love that she sits you down in her office to get to know you as a new patient before the visit and really listens.
As a new patient, she made me feel completely comfortable. We actually had a few laughs which put me right at ease. She took the time to listen to my concerns and she had a welcoming calmness to her recommendations. I am very happy to have found her and highly recommend her talents.
I was nervous about seeing a new doctor but Dr. Friedman is very kind and disarming. She made me comfortable right away and even spent some time talking to me about my health history in her office before going back to the exam room. She also sent my prescription to the pharmacy electronically on the spot and it was ready for pickup by the time I got to the pharmacy! I can't believe she takes my insurance too. I just saw her today and already recommended her to a friend. I am happy to say I have found my new doctor!
She is amazing and makes me feel completely comfortable all the time. Always shows concerns and provides plenty of options for any problems that I may have.
Dr. Friedman took time to answer my questions and is a truly caring and thorough doctor!
Felt super comfortable! Very personable and smart! Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Dr. F is friendly and patient, which is not a typical experience with doctors these days. Her demeanor made me feel comfortable and open to discussing somewhat embarrassing topics. I was impressed by her thorough exam and attention to my bio/psycho/social history. I would definitely recommend her to a friend and am relieved that I found a great new doc!
Dr. Friedman is a warm, friendly, down to earth and easy to talk to gyn doctor. I waited about 10-15 minutes past my appt time to see her, which I wasn't bothered by at all, but she apologized anyway. This was my first visit, so we talked in her office first and went over my history and questions. She placed my birth control refill request to my home pharmacy with a click of a button on her computer. The exam itself was standard and comfortable. She was appropriately conversational and you could tell she was paying attention to my concerns. Someone else drew my blood, and she was also very nice and pleasant. Overall, I got exactly what I needed from an initial visit and I look forward to keeping Dr. Friedman as my gyn... :)
Doctor was pleasant but the staff were less than professional. Also, the doctor is not an ob only a gyn.
She was warm, easy to talk with, professional and made you feel like you were in caring, capable hands.
Dr. Friedman was great! She really took the time to listen to me about my concerns and addressed every question I had. Never during the appointment did I feel rushed.
Dr. Friedman was very helpful, friendly, and efficient. I will certainly recommend her.
The experience was very professional and thoughtful. Dr. Friedman listened to my conerns and issues and was willing to help coordinate care.
Really, everything went as well as possible. Both Zoc Doc and Dr. Friedman were excellent finds.
She was fantastic!!

extremely intelligent, easy to communicate with and terrific bedside manner

Routine appointment but was very pleased with her manner and the way the office is run.
I immediately felt at ease in her presence. She was kind, attentive and addressed all of my concerns thoroughly.

I was very pleased with my first visit to Dr. Friedman. As a new patient she spent time with me getting to know my history. I did not feel rushed at all. Felt she was thorough with exam, questions and answers. I will definitely return.
Dr. Friedman was personable and very welcoming. She also went over my history and concerns with me and made some recommendations about future considerations. Very easy to work with.
Extremely fast and efficient while making me feel comfortable and thoroughly cared for
I waited a while, but I was late for my appointment anyway. The office was beautiful, the staff were friendly, and Dr. Friedman was awesome. I'm young, so I can appreciate a Gyno with a sense of humor.
