Superb physician. Gets it right away. And, he communicates his diagnosis and plan superbly. Walked me through every step, and made sure I understood each one. A keeper.

Great doc and nice guy. Got me in on time, got me out amazingly quickly! They have this new device that enabled him to examine my eyes without making me blind, and to show me what he was looking at. Took the time to make sure that i knew what was going on and to answer questions. Definitely going back.

I usually review physicians regarding my personal care, and I can say that Dr. Friedman is a great ophthalmologist. Always on his best game. Responsive, smart and gets it right. True professional. But, this time, I am writing in regard to a very close friend who was having a horrible problem and had been to umpteen ophthalmologists. I asked Dr. Friedman to see him as a personal favor. He was AMAZING. Shortly afterward Dr. Friedman took him to the OR and...he can see again!! THANK YOU!!

Dr. Friedman just saved my life! (at least my eye). I had retina surgery by another eye doctor two days ago and suddenly went painfully blind. Of course my surgeon was nowhere to be found. I got Dr. Friedman through a colleague. Called him on my way to the emergency room. Called me right back, saw me immediately and started to fix the problem. I am not in pain but will probably need surgery again. Without his care and kindness, who knows!

Dr. Friedman was kind, highly professional and explained everything to me perfectly. Loooove him.
