Learn about Dr. Friele

Care Philosophy

I enjoy developing long relationships with my patients. I feel that treating women is a special calling. While I really enjoy surgical procedures, I feel it is really important to find what is the best treatment for a patient, and frequently that is to NOT do surgery. I think it is really important to listen to the patient and determine what is both medically the best treatment and the one that fits the patient's life and their particular needs.
