If you want a physician that will stick to her schedule, but also move you along quickly in order to do so, this is not the one you want. BUT, if you want a physician who has exception skills at diagnosis and will take the time to do her homework, and provide a comprehensive evaluation during your visit with her, Dr. Friedlander will do right by you. But, expect to wait for your appointment. She was referred to me by my cardiologist as the physician that HIS wife used! A good referral.

Dr. Friedlander is no longer my doctor. I was treated poorly on numerous occasions. I once had a 9:30 appt & upon arrival, was told she doesn't arrive until around 10:15. She criticized my medical decisions regarding my cancer treatment & became hostile when I advocated for myself. Her communication w/ office staff is poor & results in issues. A simple appointment request can turn into a nightmare as things aren't communicated properly. I've never been treated so poorly by a medical proffesional

During a recent trauma, I was hospitalized for a few days. Dr. Friedlander came to see me twice (one visit was on a Sunday) and made recommendations for my follow=-up, home care, etc. It is obvious she cares about my well-being.

Never had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Friedlander. I was a new patient referred by UHC. Made my appointment 3 weeks in advance. Showed up at the office 30 mins before my scheduled appointment to complete new patient paperwork. Waited over an hour and ended up having to leave as i had other appointments. Her staff members were rude and offered no apology for the wait. This experience was a total waste of time. Do yourself a favor and choose another practice.

Terrible communications and follow up - does not return patient calls
in Boynton Beach, FL |
Nasty, rude, and not quite sure why she is a doctor if she doesn't care about her patients. This was a disappointing experience as I felt as I left her office feeling as if my questions relating to my health went unanswered. I felt rushed and dismissed, she made me feel like I wasn't valued as a person or a patient. Her office staff was equally as rude.
