What People Say About Dr. Edward Federman, MD
Reply
Dr. Federman sadly falls into the category of drug pusher not problem solver. My mother is fighting for what may be a shortened life due to Dr. Federman's lack of due diligence. She has COPD. She had symptoms indicating a change in her condition. Federman prescribed a "new inhaler". We asked for an MRI. Federman sent her home. We took her to the ER. One of her lungs was filled 40% with fluid, and was diagnosed with pnuemonia. To say we are upset, is understated. Change Doctors NOW.

I was due to have lung surgery for a rare form of lung cancer and I was told I might need a pulmonologist afterwards if there were complications. Dr. Federman was able to see me right away so we had a relationship prior to surgery...and he took a full pulmonary medical history rather than relying on what was in the database, and checked me for asthma and my lung capacity, so we had a baseline to measure against post surgery. He was easy-going, likable, and professional.
