      Dr. Friedman and her office staff are wonderful!! She preformed my back surgery May 2015 &I have had 0 problems since. She takes the time to listen and gives all the options & lets you know what she thinks is the best route to take to provide the best results. Very professional & compassionate. Her office staff was terrific in handling my insurance company & kept me up to date on any issues that arose. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Friedman. She gave me much needed relief of back pain

      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
