Dr Friedman is great. However, his office manager Derk=jerk. You can tell the staff is afraid of him. Baby and I were 20mins late. traveling w/ an infant is not easy. I called ahead to let them know. When I walked in, the waiting room was PACKED. This is not a tightly run ship so me being late didnt throw things off. People had been waiting more than an hour. Derk canceled my 7 mo old's appt, I asked to be fit. After a lecture from Derk they fit me in but we were punished with a 2.5 hr wait.

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.
