What People Say About Dr. Henry Friedman, MD
Reply
I was diagnosed with a stage 4 brain cancer tumor in 2017, and was given only a few months to live. It was suggested that I give Dr. Friedman a chance to review my situation. Dr. Friedman asked me to send him a copy of my MRI. I am now a 2 year survivor thanks to his original efforts to get me into the Duke Cancer and Research Center. I would recommend Dr. Friedman for any brain tumor problems.

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.
