What People Say About Dr. Howard Friedman, DPM
Reply
Wow. I just left Dr. Friedmans office and I'm writing this review from the parking lot because he was just THAT good. I have a history of ingrown toenails and have had the worst experiences with different podiatrists. Here was totally different. Joan at the front desk was amazing enough but when I saw the doctor and he treated my feet, I couldn't even tell he had touched me and yet, problem gone. I would definitely bring my young son here and will be coming back again. Highly recommend!
