So far so good
Excellent Doctor and friendly staff, Doctor truly pays attention to the patient's well being.
As a person who's parents are medical professionals, I am sympathetic to the industry and the staff who work so hard to provide medical treatment. I will list my authentic, unbiased thoughts below as keep in mind I was a first time patient, and soon to be first time mother. CONS: -There are only 5 parking spots infant of the building otherwise I'm not sure where other's manage to find it. -Appointment was set for 8:30am, but I was not seen (by the Dr.) until 10:30am. -After being called to the back, no one really knew what to do with me so I stood near the "blood station" until someone asked me if I was being helped. I did this for over 45 minutes until I was noticed. -Once I was told I was going to be seen soon, there was a scramble by the staff to locate my file. I know it was missing because someone asked and everyone said "they didn't have it". It was finally located, by the "blood station". -In the exam room, Dr. Friefeld was extremely brief; Pap-smear was quick (certainly okay by me!) and once the u/s took into effect, he allowed my husband and I to appreciate the view of the baby for maybe 3-4min. He said heart beat looked good (we could not hear it) and he measured the baby from "rump to crown" and took note of it but made zero mention if all is healthy, on track or going well/bad. -After the exam + u/s he told me to get dressed and leave the room. Once I did this, I was back at the desk near the "blood station" and was told I had to come back for bloodwork. Once I asked the girl (who barely spoke english) what exactly was being tested with the bloodwork, the Dr. came around the corner and said "We test for everything - Down Syndrome and other deformities along with the sex. It's 99% accurate but we've never had an issue with it before. See you then" - Then walked away. -When I asked the girl when I could get those results, she said, "Don't worry, we will make an appointment follow up to review the results. If something bad happens, we will call you in beforehand to review." -Overall, I was with the Dr. for maybe 15 minutes total. -I left feeling very uneducated, and not knowing much anything about my baby other that it was moving in my uterus and had a visual heartbeat that looked strong. -Bedside manners/Customer Service was C- at most. -****Biggest con: apparently a newborn had died and one of the staff asked the doctor, in front of many patients and I in the back desk area (again, near the blood station), if he was available to speak to the medical examiner because a baby had died and was being seen by this doctor for care. He said not a problem, he would be happy to speak to the medical examiner about any questions but this is a conversation that should NOT happen infant of other patients particularly PREGNANT WOMEN! [The fact that a baby he had delivered + cared for had a passed away for reasons unknown, is NOT a good impression for a first time mother or any for that matter!] PROS: -The initial sign up paperwork was brief. The lady at the front desk was very kind and sweet. -The lobby/waiting room is clean and warm. HD TV, plenty of reading material, information about 3d ultrasounds, pamphlets and more. -This might be a great place for someone with multiple children who are seasoned vets, but not for first timers looking for kind & sweet Doctors.
I always go to Dr. Friefeld. He delivered my baby so he's trusted.
It was absolutely wonderful as always
I actually got his assistant and she was amazing. Super comfortable, and funny.
Great and professional establishment, however, the wait time was quite long.
It was a great experience I love it there
The doctor and staff are very wonderful
I have been a patient of Dr. Friefeld for more than 25 yrs. He and his staff have always provided excellent care.
As always the doctor and the staff are wonderful. Wait time was due to making upgrades
I would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone looking for a more personal experience. This being my first pregnancy I had a lot of questions to ask the doctor and was very excited for my 5 week visit! However, my excitement changed upon arrival. I'm going to skip over the lack of parking, dirty lobby, dirty urine test bathroom and cramp space and get to the point...The doctor answered a phone call while fist deep in my vag taking a sonogram (or some test)!! I never imagined that the first time I saw my little bean it would be interpreted by the doctor talking on the phone about a conference! No questions were answered not that I was even asked by the doctor if I had any questions. He is awful and the jokes aren't funny. I have Humana Insurance and will be looking for a new doctor asap.
I have been a patient for a long time. Dr Friefeld is the BEST!
The doctor took a vaginal us and kept no record of it! Now I either have to pay out of pocket for my new doctor to do an ultrasound or wait until I'm 13 weeks. 13 weeks to see my little bean! When I call to get information I am either put on hold then transferred to their answering service just to be hung up on OR the answering machine is full. This place is a circus. As a new mother I suggest that you find someone else. The office is dirty and the care is poor.
I've been with Dr Friefeld for 23yrears I wouldn't go to any one else
I am going back, regardless of the wait.

A super caring physician. Very knowledgeable and intelligent!

They were horrible they lied and stole my money
Dr Friefeld is an amazing doctor. He took the time to look into every detail of my past office visits in his office and was very caring, sincere and knowledgeable. He made me feel very much at ease and answered all my questions thoroughly and gave me new information I took with me to review. He seemed very concerned and made sure all my needs for my visit were taken care of. I have been a patient for years at his office. Every visit is a delight. I will never go anywhere else.
The wait is too long.
His staff is very loving and caring. Dr. Friefeld is a very caring, attentive person. He takes his time to hear your concerns, and is very thorough. I'm sure you would agree with me once you schedule an appointment with him and see for yourself.
He is the best doctor ever... So kind all the time I have him as a doc for 7 years, I 100% recomend this doctor
He has been my doctor for over 11 years , not once been dissapointed !!!
He is wanderful!
When I got to the office realized I know him already, and would never go back... If you check his google and yahoo reviews you can see many real reviews what the reason is. He is rude ( when actually takes time to talk to you a few words at least), office is dirty and the waiting time is horrible.
Very pleasant. Dr Friefeld is a great doctor. I gave been going to him over 25 years
I loved my visit with Dr. Friefeld. It was good and the staff was courtesy and pleasantly.
Dr. Friefeld and team are very professional people!!!
Dr. Richard gave me a good care with lot of patience, and courtesy
He's a wonderful doctor. I'm very happy with him.
I have been going to Dr Friefeld for 22 years, would not consider going anywhere else. He is an excellent doctor and a very kind, compassionate person.
Dr. was nice, but it took a very long itme until I was seen... and I work in a Dr.'s office- this was a little ridiculous... but I'm going back to give them a second chance. We'll see...
I'm making this guy my primary. He definetly knows what he's talking about and made me very comfortable:)
A VERY GOOD AND PREPARED DOCTOR. HE ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS AND I DECIDED TO MAKE HIM MY DOCTOR ! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYBODY .

I LOVE HIS WORK
Dr. Richard Friefeld is an Amazing OB/GYN. I initially came to his office with an untypical pregnancy which ended in me having to have an ectopic pregnancy surgically removed. From the moment I first came into his office I have been treated with the most professional care one can receive. I can really tell he cares about me and his other patients. A patient can feel completely confident in his care and dont worry, you won't have procedures done that you don't need. I Highly recommend him to anyone. I am sure you will appreciate making him your choice as a OB/GYN.
Very personable and knowledgeable, great bedside manner. Been a patient for several years.
The parking situation stinks although I got a perfect spot today. Dr Friefeld is great!
Was. Really. Good profesional. Doctor I love him
Doc Friefeld and his team is the best. I recommend EVERYONE to them....:)

The wait time was a bit much for me.
I loved it, I didn't have to wait too long, and Dr. Richard was wonderful, he answered all my question before I asked them. I highly recommend him to everyone.
Very Humble, very respecful, heard the client concern, and intervene. great office environment very clean. the receptionist kept the ambiance warm. so far I will recommand him to any new client.
