    Dr. Friel was very kind, informative, and thorough during my visits and surgery. I was diagnosed with colon cancer and had many questions and emotions. He took the time to answer my questions and I never felt he was rushing out of the room. He performed a laparoscopic sigmoid resection a week after my initial diagnosis. The procedure went great, the recovery was better than I expected and thanks to his skill, my surgery scar is minor. I highly recommend Dr. Friel!

    Dr Friel had taken the time to explain in great detail the diagnosis and the required surgical procedure I did not feel that I was rushed though the process. The surgery went much better that I expected and the recovery was quick even though this was a significant surgery. Dr. Friel is a highly experience surgeon and I credit his expertise to my quick and painless recovery. I would not hesitate to have any procedure with Dr Friel I assure you that you are in great hands.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
