    Dr. Friedman is a skilled surgeon as well as one of the most caring Physicians that I have ever known. She takes time to evaluate the patient and makes decisions based on the best possible outcome for the long term. I really can't say enough nice things about her and her staff. I can say that if you are looking for a neurosurgeon that should strongly consider Dr. Emily Friedman.

    Dr Friedman fused 2 ruptured disc in my neck twenty some years ago and i have not had any problems with that since. She did a 3 hour surgery on my lower back in march of 2016 with complete success. I am very pleased with her skills and the passion she shows to do the very best for her patients. She is a great surgeon and a great person in my opinion.

    She would not treat me unless I wore a stimulator. The stimulator made me sick, increased the pain in my neck, shoulders, arms and hands. No surgeries by her. Since I stopped see her I have has 2 shoulder surgeries, neck surgery and future back surgery this summer. She was not kind to me. She would slam my folder on the counter and raise her voice.
