The people who gave poor reviews evidently do not know Dr. Friedlander very well. Aside from being an excellent practitioner she IS caring and compassionate. I had emergency surgery a few years ago in the middle of the night. Only the surgeon and gastroenterologist were involved in my treatment, but she came to the hospital the next day to check on me.

Worst Doctor Ever. Don't bother calling this women, its crazy that she even passed her boards. She does not care about her patients well being. She refused to help with further care for a family member of mine, and told us that she "doesn't do things like this", screamed at our elderly relative, and told us she gave up. Only go to this horrible human being if you want to die quick, she will be happy to do whatever she can to end your life quicker then before you saw her.

Dr. Friedlander took care of my parents for many years, and she is incredibly caring and compassionate. Yes, you may have to wait after your scheduled time to see her—sometimes a couple of hours—but she always spends the time required. When my father was hospitalized, she called my mother to check on her. She FaceTimed with me while he was hospitalized, and we had no way to communicate with him due to Covid-19 and his difficulty using the phone. She kept me informed as to what was going on with my father when none of us could see him.

Dr Friedlander was my late wife’s doctor. This doctor prescribed a high amount of blood thinners to my late wife who then ended up in Intensive Care. Later on, my wife kept getting worse and went to Hospice. When my wife passed away Dr Friedlander did not even give her condolences and we felt ignored by her. No, I do not recommend her , it was a bad experience since the beginning.

Deborah Friedlander, MD 8200 Jog Rd #204, Boynton Beach, FL 33472 3 days ago Visited office today, 1-22-20. Appointment was made in early Dec 2019. Apparently, ,scheduling appointments doesn't coincide with doctor's time allocated with patients. My wife a I had a 10:15 and 10:45 appontment respectively. We waited 1 1/2 hours for the Doctor. My wife sitting on her wheelchair with no one caring about her discomfort. Office staff,while sympathetic accepts this as an every day occurrence . Sad way to manage an office . We left before seeing the Doctor . I can assure that I am not one of those disgruntled people who is never satisfied. The opposite is true.

Dr. Friedlander has been my mother's Doctor for over 10 years. She has prescribed my mother many drugs over the years and my mother likes her. Most recently though during a routine visit she stated that my mom would not be alive today if she did not take the Immunotherapy treatment that her Chemo Doctor is giving her. I thought this was a very strong statement that is hard to prove. Additionally the Dr stated that mom had stage 3 lung cancer which was not the case when mom had to go in for emergency gastrointestinal surgery when her immune system likely was weakened by Chemo therapy treatment. Others concluded that she didn't have stage 3 lung cancer as they were treating her based on this. Consequently this has encouraged my mother to continue getting very expensive immunotherapy treatment. In my opinion her health has not shown that such a controversial treatment is justified and the Dr. doesn't seem to be acting professional by making such statement given the details surr

A close relative of mine was admitted to the Delray Memorial hospital and, during her stay , was seen by Dr Friedlander as the covering doctor for the primary care physician on vacation. Her compassionate and professional care was a godsend throughout the process of my relative’s road toward recovery. The Dr’s caring bedside manner, her holistic view of the medical issues we were confronted with, and her willingness to stand strong and fight for the comprehensive care of her patient has been a true gift from above. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asked and would trust her implicitly with the care of any of my family members.

WORST DOCTOR! MOST DISORGANIZED, AND MISTAKE PRONE WITH SERIOUS MEDS! LONG WAIT FOR APPOINTMENTS! My 89 year old mother's previous doctor was neglectful, but Friedlander is reckless. Mom wanted a doctor close to her home, so we went with Friedlander. Now, after 4 months we have moved her to a doctor who's practice is farther away, but his reviews are much better than Friedlander's. On two occasions Friedlander made serious mistakes with Mother's's strongest medication - for depression, and dementia. Friedlander should have referred Mother to a psychiatrist. When I asked for a referral she could not provide me with one. Luckily, CVS caught the first mistake but Mom became extremely agitated. The second 'mistake' was worse: Friedlander took Mom off two very strong drugs with no weaning off & afterwards, did not call us to see how Mom was doing so I had to call her. She waited days to get back to me. There is more to report but let's just say at this point we moved on.

Dr. Friedlander has been my primary physician for ten years and through those years has earned my complete trust. She is honest, caring and not afraid to recommend different treatments if she feels it is in the best interest of the patient. She is generous with her time which leads some to complain about wait time. But hen she is treating you, she is single focused on you answering questions forthrightly and honestly. I truly respect her personally and professionally.

The doctor had a pleasant personality but waiting time is ridiculous.Her staff are totally inefficient.After my discharge from a hospital I needed a script for a cat scan.The staff told me no appointments available and I must have one to get the script,I went to a walk-in and had the cat scan and they sent me via ambulance back to the hospital.CVS tried unsuccessfully and so did I to get a refill on a medication I was on for 7 years.

Dr. Friedlander is warm, conscientious and thorough. I have been impressed by the range of her knowledge and found her to be enormously perceptive, able to deal with both myself and my husband with our individuality. She deals with the patient not just the problem. I am always surprised that we are not rushed out of the office, as she listens carefully and asks thoughtful questions. I think I like that best- her ability to listen with not just a stethoscope.

This physician has that rare combination of empathy and expertise. I have been with her for 10 years and she has navigated through my variety of health issues with ease and sincere concern. She never rushes through a visit and is very thorough which sometimes results in a bit of "wait" time. However, she is more than worth the wait. I consider myself both fortunate and blessed to have her as my Primary Care Physician.
