Review of Dr. Desilva
Attleboro, MA |
I have had Dr. Desilva for only a little over one year. She seems thorough, competent and caring. She is also no nonsense. However, her office staff doesn't always get back to my calls for sick appointments. This could be related to the construction going on. I had to see the doctor at the office in the building next door and perhaps they should leave a message on the phone to call another number. This is unforgiveable. I mentioned it to Dr. Desilva and no improvement.

Review of Dr. Friedman
in Milford, MA |
This is a review for Dr. Friedman's office. I have celticare and was automatically assigned Dr. Friedman as my primary care. After trying to schedule a physical, his receptionist rudely told me that they were not taking new patients. She did not have to be nasty about it; a simple "he's booked for the next couple of months" would have been okay. This type of defensive behavior makes me think Masshealth should take a look at doctors who "accept" their insurance. Tax break anyone?

Review of Dr. Chaparala
Stoughton, MA |
I went in for throat pressure that started months ago that has been worsening over 2 weeks. While polite, Dr. Chaparala immediately told me to see an ENT and to take Motrin for pain. I didn't have pain at all. I had to reiterate that more than once. No bloodwork, examination, discussion; just a referral. (Which stated pain as a reason.) Waste of a copay.

Review of Dr. Friedman
North Smithfield |
Dr. Friedman has excellent communication with his patients. He is calm and compassionate. As long as he is in practice, I will continue to see him. He is thorough. One time, he made an excellent catch about a side effect to a medication I was taking, he knew the reversal to this side effect. I will say this--he is very cautious about adding or changing meds. He is somewhat conservative in his treatment, which is fine by me.

Review of Dr. Friedman
in Wrentham, MA |
I've been seeing Dr. Friedman for at least 15 years now and can't imagine a more knowledgeable and pleasant primary physician. His manner is calm, quiet and patient. I have never felt rushed while seeing him.

Review of Dr. Friedman
Dr. Friedman has been my doctor for quite some time...I live more than a hour away, but still have him as a PCP because he is great. He follows up, he will call me directly on the phone. He truly cares about his patients. There are very few doctors like him left.

Review of Dr. Friedman
in Walpole, MA |
Dr.Friedman is patient, receptive, and calculated, He truly makes you feel like you are family and looks at every possible scenario before making his diagnosis. Very different from many MD's in that he has that old school Dr. vibe to him in that the patient is a person not a insurance number, He also has a very cerebral personality you can tell he is analyzing and dissecting everything before forming an opinion and being to quick to make a determination.
