Dr. Friedman is an excellent doctor from every standpoint. He has successfully diagnosed and treated my heart condition and carefully monitored my progress for several years. He is thorough in his examinations , takes the time to explain clearly his conclusions, and exudes confidence and genuine concern. Besides, he is fun to talk to. Upon leaving his office I feel somehow that everything will be okay.
