What People Say About Dr. Gary Friesen, MD
Reply
I enjoy Dr. Friesen. He has a style of answering every question you have, friendly & in depth. He always gives me my options, & explains each one, I don't like my condition ever to be candy-coated, or minimized. Dr. Friesen has a way of doing it, & without scaring me, or upsetting me. I like him as a person, as do John Pap & Tom Legalley.

Bad bedside manners. Speaks badly of Duke LifePoint Hospitals. Blames them for understaffing and not being able to get any Dr.s to work there.
