Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

No empathy for the patient, horrible bedside manner. Melanie and Christine in their office are the sweetest despite the leadership. I would go somewhere else where the leader of the practice has some tact.

I have been very satisfied with Dr Friedman, I’m giving a 5 just to him. He found a medication that has helped me with a problem I’ve had for over 2 years. I’ve seen numerous specialists over 2 years with no relief. Dr Friedman has been excellent about explaining everything & about letting me be a part of the decision making process. For the most part he has been on time & spends ample time during visits. I have found his staff to be unsatisfactory. I have called several times without anyone picking up, I’ve been put on hold for 20-25 minutes without anyone picking up, I’ve left several messages & no return calls & one of the staff has been very argumentative when I talked with her about a problem with a medication - totally unnecessary, unacceptable behavior. On 2 occasions I decided to go to the office so I could speak to someone in person to get my questions answered. There seems to be an adequate number of staff but they do a VERY POOR job of taking care of the patients.

Excellent. I trust Dr. Friedman. He is the only doctor who I have seen who really listens and doesn’t just throw meds at my symptoms. He is trained in multiple pain management modalities and takes time to explain them all. He is compassionate and caring and I believe him when he says I won’t have this pain forever. I also have never had an issue with his office staff. They are very busy but they always get back to me.

Dr. Friedman was the only Dr. in a trail of 13 physicians that actually performed a thorough physical evaluation for a differential diagnosis rather than staring at an MRI or making statements like "you have an unusual constellation of symptoms." He is smart, refers to the best neurosurgeons or neurologists, and orders diagnostic testing as necessary. He has outstanding hands for pinpointing sources of pain ands is excellent with a needle. I would have taken a bullet if not for him.

As someone with severe Rheumatoid disease, I have been a patient of this practice for more than ten years. Dr. Friedman is an excellent pain management physician. He is willing to offer alternative therapies such as dry needling. The entire practice is excellent. They have given me my life back.

He will not see you if you are 5 minutes late, but he can run behind 50 min for a scheduled appt. Staff is terrible rude, never gets back to people. Staff has a high turnover ratio.

He's fine.Communication with the office,awful!!!! My new patient info I filled out was tedious.I emailed it back, when I arrived they said I'd have to fill it out again because they can't get emails from gmail accounts, they should have said that when emailing it to a gmail account!!! Then the doc called in a very expensive med, my pharmacist & I called and emailed from a different email to no avail to have it changed, 6 weeks.I canceled my follow up appt & on my voicemail now, reminder for appt
