Dr Federman discovered a spot on wife’s X-ray that turned out to be breast cancer. No other doctor noticed it. He recommended an oncologist and she had the surgery to remove the spot. He called the oncologist from the exam room to set the first appointment up. We’ve been using him as our primary physician for years now

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.
