Dr. Friedman unprofessionally diagnosed my condition as requiring palliative and HOSPICE care, without as much as a SINGLE question about ME, the patient. He prescribed oxycodone when a 200mg ibuprofen eased the pain. He had me see his trainer, Dr. Brown. Pressured me to have a biopsy under extreme pain and duress in the site that was causing me excruciating pain. The bill he charged me was $901.00. The consult did me less than one iota of 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.
in Milwaukie, OR |
The initial introduction was great we had our consultation for my procedure that went fine schedule the surgery 2 days before the procedure they started calling me saying that they need half the money up front before they would do anything. You wouldnt't go to the mechanic and pay them first you pay them after services rendered. And the first phone call i got after the procedure was from them about my FMLA paperwork and they won't proceed until a processing fee is payed. Worst ethical practice
