Dr. Friedman treated me for various eye problems and eyeglass prescriptions for years.. Eventually I needed cataract surgery which he performed and got me back to the vision I had when I was 20 years old. I no longer need glasses. Dr Friedman - in my opinion is dedicated, first class caring Doctor. I would highly recommend him and would give 10 stars if I could.

! Dr Friedman has a bad-bed side manner. I took my 81 yrs mother( spanish speaking) to see him before and he asked me how come she does not speak any english being she was in this country for a while, which it had nothing to do with it, since i was there to translate. Yesterday i took her for a second visit and my mom got confused when he said look to the right and she looked to the left. she has dementia ) He went to say right, right and snapping his fingers as you do to a dog. Not very kind

Dr Friedman has provided my 90-year old mother extraordinary care. Hers was a very complicated cataract condition, one that probably would gone untreated had he not offered to do it. He has time and again gone the extra mile for mom, spending far more time on her case than we ever expected. He has exceeded our every expectation.
