Dr. Friedman's was awesome he is a real people person
in Bryan, TX |
I visited Dr. Friedman in January or February 2016 for a second opinion. Two highly paid doctors had recommended surgery for spinal stenosis because of chronic back pain. A much lower paid PT told me there is more wrong with the bones of my left hip than my spine, just by doing her therapy with me. Dr. Friedman let me do 2 exercises, looked at the X-rays of hip and spine (which the other 2 doctors also had seen), and he recommended hip replacement. That happened in early March. No more back pain

I really felt comfortable with Dr Freidman. Very attentive to hearing the patients difficulties with pain. Let's you know he will do all he can to help with your medical problems.
in College Station, TX |
After surgery, the surgeon moves on and the PA handles patient after care. After nearly 6 weeks on anti-seizure med the patient goes back over the prescription informational sheet and realizes he is experiencing some side effects that definitely need addressed by the PA that warrants being immeadiately switched off this particular pill. Now he has to relay his concern through the triage nurse and wait forthe PA to check her mail as he was told no on call doctor is available for him. no call.
in Teague, TX |
Dr. Friedman is very in depth with his diagnosis and treatment options. I have recommended him to several people who have also had great results.
