Thomson, GA |
Excellent Doctor, very professional and helpful. Wonderful with patient comfort. Recommend 100 times over!

Dr. Friedman is a very professional, awesome Physician. He will take good care of you. He's staff...not so much, forget to schedule my referral and then lie about it. Told me the hospital is waiting for my call to schedule surgery, when I called, the surgery staff had never even heard of me. If you leave a message for Dr. Friedman or his nurse to call you, 9 times out of 10 you'll never hear from them. Good "HELP " is hard to find!!!
in Augusta, GA |
I have never felt so comfortable at a doctor's office. Dr. Freidman was extremely friendly, easy to talk to, and he actually *listened* to me. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients! I am so grateful to have been referred to him.

Best Dr Ever

Dr. Friedman is very perfessional, kind and caring. He truly is very thorough with providing care to his patients. He listens before jumping to diagnose. His personality is so pleasant and he has a great sense of humor which makes your visit so much more calm and easy to get through. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Whenever I come for a visit no matter how bad I feel he instantly makes me feel as though I'm going to be just fine... 100% of the time I am. ?? Thank you Dr. Friedman!
