Excellent experience. Have me proper diagnosis after a different doctor missed it.

Dr. Friedman saved my arm. I shattered my upper arm into what Dr. Friedman described as 10-15 pieces. It took 5.5 hours of surgery to repair what the xray tech described as the worst broken bone he'd ever seen. A year later, you would never know I'd had a major injury. Every day, I'm grateful for Dr. Friedman's skill, and general niceness. Everyone in his office is beyond great. (esp. Chanel!) Dr. Friedman teaches other doctors how to do upper arm surgery. You are lucky if he is your surgeon.

Dr misdiagnosed stress fracture which then became a complete tibia break. I spoke with his secretary many times coz symptoms were getting worse, but though charming was very unhelpfu. Now i'm in a wheelchair, housebound for next 3 months. If only dr Friedman and his secretary would have listened to me....properly.And believed me.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Friedman is not only a very competent surgeon, he has a wonderful bedside manner which is unusual for a surgeon. He spent time talking to me and answering my questions. He operated on my knee and I recently ran a half marathon and plan to run my first NYC marathon in the fall. Dr. Friedman's staff was also very professional and kind. I have a thick accent and it is not east to understand me over the phone but they were always very patient and helpful. I 100% recommend Dr. Friedman.
