Dr. Elihu has the bedside manner of a rock. He is an egotistical person that thinks he is better than anyone. He is rude and self centered. I wouldn't want him to get anywhere near me with anything sharp.

Review for Dr. Alex Fridman Jr, MD

I thought the space available for my stress test was ridiculous, too small. The attitude was a little abrupt and lacking in bedside manner. I felt all the staff just couldn't wait to go home at 4.30pm. The facilities are lacking in thought for the patient.

This doctor was probably the rudest doctor I've ever come across in my entire life. He had absolutely zero compassion or understanding for the situation. Kaiser needs to get rid of him ASAP.
