Dr. Friedman was my emergency physician when I was hospitalized for diverticulitis. His treatment plan worked well, and he exhibited a warm and caring manner. His explanations were thorough, and aftercare was good.

He handled my emergency appendectomy late on a Monday night and did a great job. He was easy to talk to in my follow up and his staff was easy to work with. Would definitely recommend for any general surgical procedure.
