Patient reviews for Dr. Adam Friedman
Dr. Friedman was helpful and direct (in a good way), taking into past treatments, lifestyle, cost and benefits.
Excellent first appointment, staff was positive and helpful and the medical staff was attentive, caring and very professional.
Dr. Adam Friedman and all the other staff I contacted in my dermatology appointment was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Dr. Friedman was able to establish a diagnosis quickly and in a reassuring manner. When I was contacted by the specialty pharmacy and went to my local pharmacy to pay and get my medication, I was sorry to find out Dr. Friedman prescribed medication that isn't covered by my insurance. I would have appreciated an affordable alternative or at least a warning about what to expect. Seeing the pharmacy bill was very shocking.
Dr. Friedman is, by far, the best doctor I've had in a very long time. He is patient, caring, kind and really funny! :) I'm truly blessed to have a doctor like him!
I drive an hour to see Dr. Friedman and it often takes several months to get an appointment with him, but he has been very helpful where other dermatologists have not. It is worth the wait and the drive to see him.
Great first experience. Explained things well and gave good information.
The wait time was more than an hour. Unfortunately, my general complaint as a new patient with hair loss issues was that I felt that going to a specialist I thought more testing, thought and introspection into my case would be done. But that was not the case. I was given a very cursory glance and then several prescriptions and a diagnosis based on my "description" of symptoms, some of which I am not sure how one would confirm without blood testing. But I left with more doubt and little confidence with a plan to check in again after three months. It took me over 3 months just to get the first appointment. Not happy and will be seeking second medical insight into my case.
Dr. Friedman and his staff were very professional and courteous. Thank you for this service.
Dr. Friedman is amazing! As someone dealing with a complex issue, it was such a relief to talk to someone who knows his stuff. Couldn't recommend him more.
Great bed-side manner, makes you feel comfortable!
Dr. Friedman seems very knowledgable and thorough. He is patient, and he takes time to answer all my questions and address my concerns. I trust his judgment. And I will continue to return to Dr. Friedman for all my dermatology needs.
Friendly and personable.
First visit to Dr. Friedman 's office. I was very impressed with the friendly and professional staff. I was promptly escorted by Dr Friedman's assistant to the examination room where He interviewed me. Then Dr. Friedman appeared and introduced himself to me and my spouse. He listened carefully to my complaints and asked all the relevant questions to form his intial impression of my condition. Then he physically examined me with great attention to my obvious and not so obvious symptoms. He discussed with me his impressions of my condition and his recommendation for a course of treatment. He answered my questions fully and addressed my concerns satisfactorily. Overall it is my opinion that Dr Adam Friedman is a highly skilled physician that treats his patients with kindness, respect and great concern for their health.
Absolutely superb. Quick and efficient, but still listens and explains. Gives you the time you need. Very smart, very good at his job!
The doctor is a ball of energy. This was a followup visit and I have been very pleased with the results of treatment for my condition. He saw me quickly, answered my questions and sent me off. Welcome to modern medicine. For those folks with busy schedules that is wonderful. For those of us who are getting a little slower, it felt like being on a fast moving train. Would I choose him as my doctor again? Absolutely! He is a very good doctor so the speed is worth getting used to.
Dr. Friedman appears to have hit the spot in diagnosis AND treatment, something three previous doctors have been unable to do.
Dr. Friedman is excellent! He's super smart, friendly, thorough, and caring. I have 100 percent confidence in his skills as a doctor. I'm very lucky to have found him and would highly recommend him. Thank you, Dr. Friedman!!
Highly recommended doctor. Just what I was looking for.
Excellent bed side manner and knowledgeable . Thanks Akhtar Mirshahi
Knows what is hapining in dermatological treatment and medications.
Good Doctor, attentive, well informed and up on the latest trends, diagnostics and treatment. Couldn't be happier. More importantly you feel you're in good hands even if things are not trivial.
It was a bit of a wait time, but the Dr. Friedman's bedside manner and attention to me as a patient made the wait worth it. The staff was very helpful and very clear about the procedure I needed to have. Though it took a while for the doctor to see me, things moved quickly after that. I got all my questions answered and will feel very comfortable returning.
Dr, Freidman saw me at the time of my appointment. He immediately diagnosed the issue and fully explained the solution.
