Dr Friedman is the absolute best doctor I have ever been to. So much so that even though I moved 2 hours from Brooklyn I still make the long drive as there isn't a better Neurologist. He knows how to deal with patients and is a compassionate, man, as well as an excellent diagnostician who truly cares. There is no better. Period Joel L
