Dr Frimer is the Sherlock Holmes of medicine. I have been a patient for 15 years and think he is the best doctor in Westchester for pulmonary and internal medicine. I would safely refer anyone to his care. He is particularly kind and patient with geriatric patients. Highly respected by other medical professionals

Dr Frimer cared for my father for 27 years as his primary care doctor and specialist due to a chronic lung condition. He saw him several times per year and prescribed medication for his lung issues, but neglected his overall proactive screening. My father had a large polyp removed by colonoscopy and a small lung nodule, which we thought was from scar tissue - yet the Dr order no follow up for years. Last fall we pushed for more testing with new Drs and confirmed metastatic colon cancer.
