Chapel Hill, NC |
He is very rude and condescending when he talks to me and seems to enjoy being that way. I'm in the fight for my life and I certainly do not want to be treated like crap by a doctor.Cancer doctors are suppose to give a patient Hope,Dr Friedman's demeanor is the exact opposite of hope.
