About Me

Care Philosophy

Every patient has a story and a history that includes medical, personal and social information. As a physician, I can contribute to that story in positive ways with my medical knowledge and experience. I enjoy working with patients to better understand who they are and how I can add to their lives by improving health outcomes, from pregnancy to perimenopause and beyond.

I really like and trust Dr. Friel. She asks questions about your family and relationships to get a sense of your total wellbeing. She knows how much stress can impact health. My daughter was having pain with her cycles so I took her to Dr. Friel for evaluation and treatment. I recommend her to everyone. She has a great demeanor and cares about her patients.
