Philadelphia |
Dr. Friedman really hooked me up when I was in a bind with aging out of my parents' insurance . He expedited the process to make sure I could get in for my procedure before my birthday. Not only that, I felt really listened to as a patient and like my concerns, as far as how visible the change in my nose would be, were all answered with thoughtfulness and sensitivity. I've already recommended him to two of my friends with similar nasal issues and they have had great experiences as well!
Bridgeport, PA |
Dr. Friedman was respectful, professional, and did a phenomenal job prepping me for my rhinoplasty. He heard my concerns post-op, and helped me get back to work when I was ready. I’m a year post-op, and my nose looks great! I no longer have breathing issues, and my nose looks much straighter in photos.

Foremost, Dr. Friedman is exceptionally caring to his patients. He is knowledgable, trustworthy and incredibly talented. I saw Dr. Friedman after a couple of other doctors told me they weren't able to help me breath better. Dr. Friedman suggested a nasal septum reconstruction which I proceeded to have without any hesitation. The results were amazing as I was not only able to breath better but also aesthetically. I have also seen him for injectables and I have nothing but praise for his skill.
Clarks Summit, PA |
After having two surgeries previously done by other surgeons I am so happy that I was referred to Dr. Friedman. I traveled three hours to meet with Dr.Friedman and I wouldn't have it any other way! He answered all of my questions before and after surgery. His staff was very efficient and the office was spotless. Before surgery Dr.Friedman allows his patients meet with his aesthetician Linda for a facial prior to surgery at no cost which further proves how much he cares about his patients.
in Blackwood, NJ |
Dr Friedman provided outstanding care from start to finish. He made sure all questions were answered and procedures explained fully. My son was very anxious about his surgery and Dr Friedman took time to talk to him and allay his fears.
in Philadelphia, PA |
A outstanding Doctor, supported by an extremely personal and experienced staff.
Dr. Friedman has impeccable bedside manner that accompanies his skill set in the field of otorhinolaryngology. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to end their sinus suffering. Dr. Friedman truly helps his patients through the process-he is able to informally explain your diagnosis, the surgical procedure, and any questions you have. He exudes a warm, caring demeanor that allows patients to feel comfortable and a high degree of professionalism that allows patients to feel confident.
in Mullica Hill, NJ |
Could not be happier with my experience with Dr. Friedman and his staff. I saw Dr. Friedman after undergoing a MOHs procedure, and a skin flap, due to basal cell carcinoma. My nose was not looking good. Dr. Friedman had the job of trying to correct the previous 3 surgeries performed by 3 different surgeons.......and he didn't disappoint! My nose looks better now than before the cancer. The original scar is almost invisible. Thanks Dr Friedman
Lansdale, PA |
He is very nice your first visit then you never see him again. He is never there for your recheck. You see his nurse practitioner. Also, there is no visible change at all to the shape of the nose even though we paid a lot of money for the cosmetic procedure. He never returns a phone call and the staff in the office are not friendly at all.
Drexel Hill, PA |
I went to see Dr Friedman for a narrow passageway. I mentioned to him that I couldn't use breathe right strips for over a few days as it irritates my nose. I also mentioned that nose dilators didn't seem to work as well as the breathe right strips. I asked for what else we could do and all he responded with was to use the breathe right strips and remove them while showering...this left more glue on my nose and irritated my nose. He didn't suggest surgery. Need to find another ENT.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Friedman was supportive and caring throughout my sinus surgery process. I'd suffered for years with sinus headaches, infections and inflamation. Dr. Friedman knew just how to fix me up and he even used cartiledge from my ear to help open up a nostril. He always had time for my questions and gave clear answers. He's a terrific surgeon and I feel like a new person.
Naples, FL |
I am a VERY tough grader, but even I would give Dr. Friedman an A+. He is knowledgeable and caring, and never felt rushed when I saw him. He fixed a problem that I had suffered with for decades (inability to breath out of the right side of my nose) that made sleeping very difficult. I consulted other doctors over the years, but none of the others had a solution. Dr. Friedman did, and now I can breath (and sleep) again. It was worth the trips from Florida to see him.
in Bethesda, MD |
Dr. Friedman referred me and my daughter to his aesthetician who is wonderful. Although I have not been treated by Dr. Friedman, he took the time to speak with me and my daughter about our goals and checked in with us after our services to make sure we were satisfied (which we were!). Dr. Friedman is patient, kind and genuinely cares about his patients. His staff was extremely pleasant and easy to deal with as well. An extremely positive experience all around!
in Quakertown, PA |
I went to Dr. Friedman for a serious medical concern resulting in a cosmetic deformity to my nose. He has an incredible amount of knowledge in both medical & cosmetic aspects of care. He explains everything & willingly answers questions. He & his staff are so kind, friendly, & professional. I had a rhinoplasty & sinus/nasal repair. I'm so pleased with my results. I'm breathing so much better now as well. He's known to be a perfectionist with each one of his patients. A truly gifted doctor!
in Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Friedman is the not only professional, but he takes a personal interest in each and every one of his patients. He is appropriately conservative and wants what is best for his patients. I have recommended him to my friends and family and they have been extremely pleased as well. He is the best!
Media, PA |
I would recommend this Doctor since he is patient, understanding and is sincerely honest. He took the time for a consultation with my daughter and she was very pleased with the outcome. Made her feel like she could go back to him anytime just to talk , made her feel so comfortable and is fantastic at what he does. His work is beautiful and wants you to be happy with your self..Even took the time to look at my son in law and myself.. I would for sure recommend this Dr to anyone.
in Allentown, PA |
I first saw an opthamologist when I saw I had a problem and thought it was my eye. He was uncaring and rude. After seeing him a few times he finally ordered a CT scan and when I called for results I was told to wait for my next appt. I demanded my results be sent to my family physician. My scan showed a large mass in frontal sinus and I was referred to Penn Medicine and immediately given appointment with Dr. Friedman and he was very caring and thorough through my tests,surgery and aftercare.
in Vineland, NJ |
He has a way of making you feel completely at ease. I never doubted choosing him for my surgery. He was always straightforward and very caring and compassionate. Like a member of the family. I would recommend him to anyone. In fact, I already have. He is the best!
in West Chester, PA |
From my very first visit Dr Friedman put me at ease and explained everything in a way that I could understand. He did a fabulous job on my surgery, for which I am eternally grateful. I trust him with my health care needs, and I highly recommend you do the same.
in Philadelphia, Pa |
I am a medical professional who was referred to Dr. Friedman by another prominent plastic surgeon to address not only the aesthetics of my nose but also my nasal breathing. I underwent surgery 3 month ago and I couldn't be happier with my decision and results. I had never realized that the shape of the nose can make you look younger and how important nasal symmetry is in determining facial beauty. I will definitely go back to Dr. Friedman and his team for my future aesthetic facial procedures.
in Bala Cynwyd, PA |
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Friedman. I had a lower face lift and it turned out great. Easy recovery time, it looks very natural. I am very happy with the results
Swedesboro, NJ |
The procedure he did on our son was rare and we weren't even sure if it was going to take. His bed side manner is wonderful. Explained everything in detail and made sure that not only us but our son understood everything.
in Voorhees, NJ |
Dr. Friedman is an outstanding surgeon and a genuine person. He is very easy to talk to and very professional. He knows so much information about what he is doing, and is so passionate about his work. I always felt comfortable in his office and confident before surgery. My results are over the top and I am very pleased.
in Duryea PA |
I presented to Dr Friedman with severe trouble breathing and saddle nose deformity.I had 3 previous surgeries 2 of them by another Philadelphia plastic surgeon. I had even traveled to New York consulting with a top surgeon. I choose to meet Dr Friedman on a recommendation and from the moment I did l knew I found the right surgeon . His bedside manner is wonderful. He takes time with you . I never felt rushed. He gave me a beautiful nose and really improved my breathing .I highly recommend him!!
in Moorestown, NJ |
Dr. Friedman provided my daughter with the most exceptional care I could have asked for. I have never had a doctor who took the amount of time Dr. Friedman did to explain the procedure, address questions, etc. He made us feel comfortable and confident with our decision for surgery. Having Dr. Friedman do the surgery was the best decision we made! My daughter can now breathe. She feels and looks amazing! We cannot thank him enough!!!
in Huntingdon Valley, PA |
I have complete confidence in Dr. Friedman. He was the third Doctor that I had taken my son to for his breathing problems and was the only one to correctly diagnose him. Dr. Friedman did a rhinoplasty and adnoid removal and both the operation and recovery went flawless. He is intelligent, patient, kind and extremely competent. His staff is wonderful also.
Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Friedman performed nose surgery on my daughter about 6 weeks ago. The results are beyond our expectations in terms of how beautiful she looks, as well as how well she can breathe. My daughter did not want a cookie cutter nose, but to retain her character and fix the breaks she had sustained through her sports. Dr. Friedman truly listened to her, showing her state of the art before and after images. The results are great and we are very happy.
in Philadelphia, PA |
He is a good doctor. Honest, upfront. Confident in his skill, and rightly so.
Lansdale, PA |
Dr. Friedman is exceptionally caring, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and talented. His expertise and attention to detail are reflected in his work, and he will go out of his way to ensure each patient's expectations are exceeded. When it comes to life-changing surgeries and medical care, choosing a doctor you can confidently trust is crucial. You cannot beat the professionalism, skill-level, and quality of Dr. Friedman. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a premiere surgeon/doctor.
in Point Pleasant NJ |
I had previously broken my nose five times!I had a severely deviated septum and my nose was crooked!We live in NJ ,but have come to realize the best doctors are at UPENN! We were lucky to have been directed to Dr Oren Freidman.He has great bedside manner and answered all my questions.We scheduled surgery. My nose was in bad shape but Dr.Friedman was amazing and though the recovery was rough I can breath again, my nose is beautiful straight and feel great!Thank you! My outcome was worth it!
in Philadelphia, PA |
I had a terrific experience with Dr. Friedman and couldn't be happier with the results of the surgery he performed. Throughout the process - from initial consultation, to pre-op, to post-op, he was caring and professional, candid, and demonstrated world-class expertise that made me very comfortable completely trusting him. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my surgery - both in terms of my breathing better, and in terms of the way my nose looks. I highly recommend Dr. Friedman.
NJ |
I was always extremely self-conscious of my nose. I had an obvious bump and my nostrils were not positioned proportionally. I was recommended to Dr. Friedman and I am so glad I was. I ended up having rhinoplasty and septoplasty done. Dr. Friedman did a wonderful job on my nose and I now love it. People that didn't know I had the surgery done are surprised when they find out since it looks so natural. My self-confidence has improved tremendously thanks to Dr. Friedman.
in Philadelphia, PA |
I would not let him put a bandage on my dog. My experience with Dr. Oren Friedman is akin to what I would expect in a used car lot; not in a place of medicine, and certainly not at the nation?s first and supposedly finest hospital.?
Upper Darby, PA |
the worst surgeon on the planet. i took the time to write this review because i do not want what happened to me to happen to anybody else. this dr is a scam. i do not know how he is on all this boards. clearly he does not care about his patient. my surgery was a failure and he didn't even apologize for it. every time i go to his office i have to wait for an hour so that he can see me for 2min. i had a septo and rhino. i did not need a rhino but he is a good salesman a very good salesman
Really pushes every cosmetic procedure possible. Great technique to make you feel like you need to cover your face and not be seen in public otherwise. Hour and a half wait past appointment time. Staff couldn't explain charges but were quick to schedule surgery and make sure they collect $$. Almost can't remember what I went to see him for he pushed so many other procedures. Exam room was dirty.
