Besides having my confidence that he is knowledgeable and well trained, Dr. Friedman is personable and down to earth and treats me as a person not just a patient. He explains things thoroughly and listens to what you have to ask and say. I never have waited more that ten minutes over the six years I have been going to him. I highly recommend him.

I would highly recommend Dr. Friedman to anyone looking for a great ENT doctor. After numerous years of not breathing correctly, and having to be put on inhalers, and coughing constantly, I was finally sent to see Dr. Friedman. I am so thankful for that. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Friedman, from his expertise to his great bedside manner. Everyone in the office was very friendly and professional – a great experience from start to finish!

I just had opportunity to meet with Dr.Fridman in his office as a patient due to my recent Ear problem. Since I am in the medical field myself, I am writing this review as professional as well as an ordinary patient. I was impressed with his care and bedside manner, and careful assessment and explanation of his treatment plan. I am sure I am in good hands and highly recommend dr. Friedman for any ENT problems. His staff at the Front Desk and Back Office all very kind and professional.
