Patient Comments (4)

Our entire family sees Dr. Friedland. She is attentive and very knowledgeable. My daughter had an incident at school and a tree branch hit her eye, Dr. Friedland was in surgery when I called, but called me back as soon as she finished and offered to meet us after hours to see our daughter.

I have been seeing Doctor Friedland for years. She is an excellent doctor who cares about her patients. She is always up on the latest news in eye care. I don't think you can find a better ophthalmologist.

I was very surprised to overhear how disrespectful my grandfather was spoken to by this doctor. My grandparents have been going to see Dr. Beth R. Friedland for as far back as I can remember (10+ Years). The way she spoke to him was completely unacceptable! He is 91 years old and speaks very little...more

Had a bad experience with another eye doctor. Dr. Friedland fixed everything and got my 91 year-old mom a correct prescription.
