      The wait time was about 3 hours after my appointment but once in the back dr. Friedman took his time with me answered every question. He didnt make me feel rushed but instead i felt cared about.
      Atlanta, GA |
      His office is the most dysfunctional doctor's office I've ever experienced. The staff need customer service training. The area behind the front desk is messy, with stacks of paper everywhere. There are LONG wait times, and one staff person is usually raising her voice at the doctor to get him to go faster. Yes, she is practically yelling at him, and he raises his voice back to her. It's unbelievably unprofessional. I changed docs after my last experience.
      Long wait time, however he listened to my concerns and ordered the tests I requested in hopes of determining what is the cause of my problems

      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.
