After being with other Orthopedists in the Miami area, that work with lawyers and are only interested in making money off your hazard insurance, I decided to find a HONEST and COMPETENT orthopedist. I was lucky to find Dr. Friedman. He is young, has many degrees and internships in California, NY and Miami, and he HEARS YOU OUT. He was very professional with my problems, very honest with the options available, and I will certainly return there. He did NOT try to push me expensive drugs or exams.

Make sure you have your schedule cleared out for about two or three hours after your appointment cause the wait time to see the doctor will be a long one. Every time I've come to see Friedman I've waited for at least an hour and half before I got see the doctor.
We are sorry to hear about the long wait time at our practice. Patient experience is important to us at Kendall Orthopedic Specialists so we will make every effort to improve our wait times in the future. Your comments have been shared with our practice manager Hugo Ramirez. If you would like to speak with someone about this experience, please call Hugo at 305-559-1883.

Excellent Doctor! Very caring, kind and truly cares for his patients.... Office staff are very nice, pleasant as well as his practice manager. She guided me on which health plan to choose from to accommodate my grandma's needs. She explained the different plans available and how to get her enrolled. Huge help! My grandma loves going to there. Thank you!

Dr Friedman is a great guy and I have no complaints about him specifically, but their office engages in shady billing practices. I paid cash for my visit (because they don't accept insurance) and Dr. Friedman reviewed the xrays in front of me. After every visit they sent me a bill asking that I pay back the cash discount they had given me, and now more than 6 months later I got a bill for another radiologist to review the xrays.

Dr. Justin Friedman is one of the most caring, compassionate, knowlegeable, and sincere doctors at Kendall Regional Medical Center. As his patient, I underwent four surgeries due to a shattered tibia. After being discharged from the hospital, I visited Dr. Friedman's office for follow ups twice per month. Dr. Friedman provides one-on-one attention and explains thoroughly the prognosis. I highly recommend Dr. Friedman, as I consider him one of the best orthopedic surgeons in Miami, Fl.
