Dr. Friedman performed a pacemaker replacement procedure for my Mother. We were both pleased with the outcome and the compassionate bedside manner of the doctor. We highly recommend this man.

We met during one of my prolonged Afib events which he corrected in the Hospital. I was told I needed to keep hydrated as I would perspire heavily when working. I did that, and at the following event and Hospital visit was advised to replace my electrolytes. Coconut water does this wonderfully and I remain event free. 8 oz. before, in the middle of, and at the end of a project.

Saw Dr. Friedman for an evaluation and he was excellent. He explained the additional information and testing needed for a good treatment plan. We discussed several options for treatment depending upon the testing outcomes. Very pleased with him and his office staff is terrific.

My experience with Dr Friedman was nothing but positive. It took place in the hospital, so I didn't have to deal with scheduling, but that shouldn't reflect on a physician's performance anyway. Dr Friedman explained the procedure I was having done, as well as potential risks and outcomes. After the surgery, Dr Friedman came out to talk with me about how the procedure had gone. I felt very comfortable with his bedside manner, how thorough he was in explaining everything, and the decisions made.
