    Dr. Friedman is by far the best doctor I have ever seen.I chose Dr. Friedman initially because I had an HMO plan that he accepted and because his office was close to my work.When my company switched to a PPO plan, I stayed with him because I just love his demeanor.I have seen him for a few different health issues I've had (at least one of which was difficult and embarrassing to talk about) and he has an outstanding way to keep you calm and talk you through everything positively.Highly Recommend.

    Very friendly office and staff. For an annual, be prepared to get an appointment a few days out, but I have always been seen the same day when I have been sick.

    The music played in the waiting room is way too loud and inappropriate. I feel like I am in a disco.
