Patient Comments (2)
in Sugar Land, TX |
I am a physician myself and my wife and I are going through a high risk pregnancy. Dr. Friel came in and informed us about poor baby growth. Baby is in 3%, worse than 3 weeks ago. Would not even stand for us to ask a question. As she is quickly walking away my wife asked desperately, do you feel we need to deliver early and her response was "I will put it in the report!" Absolutely unprofessional physician. Both my wife and I are physician and am appalled by her as a person and physician!!!

Her office charged me almos $600 and she wouldn't answer any of my questions. She is cold and doesn't wait for you to ask questions. Seems the be in a hurry all the time
