Dr. Friedman is THE MOST dedicated doctor to his patients I have ever met. He is always available to his patients. I was admitted to the hospital the day before Easter for a kidney stone and he wasn't able to get an OR until 8 p.m. On Easter and he preformed my surgery that evening. I have only one kidney and I trust Dr. Friedman and his Associates 100% with them handling my urological needs.

HES A GOOD DR. BEEN SEEING FOR 30 YRS GREAT GUY DAVE IZZARELLI
in Norwich, CT |
My husband saw this Dr. at the ER. He had a blocked kidney and needed a couple of procedures. According to Dr. Friedman they would be done four to five days apart. Fine. First procedure was done that day by his associate. Then came the wait. My husband cannot sleep, cannot eat, can barely urinate and is in excruciating pain. It's been 2 weeks and they just called to cancel his scheduled procedure. Nothing good to say about these people. They don't care about their patients AT ALL.

I am filing a formal complaint regarding my experiences with this physician, and would never recommend him to anyone I know.
