What People Say About Dr. Robert Friedman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Friedman is quite possibly the worst doctor I've ever seen, regardless of specialty. His demeanor is dismissive, obnoxious, and condescending. He displays little interest in listening to your issues and constantly interrupts so he can get out as fast as possible. The office setting has a run down, patient-mill feeling to it. His one display of interest is when showing you his pamphlet for his TMS (his cash cow) equipment. But even with these negatives, if he were remotely impressive in terms of his expertise, I'd give him a pass. Instead, he consistently displayed a painless level of ignorance in areas where he clearly hasn't made the slightest effort to stay on top of research since he went to medical school many decades ago. Give yourself a break in life—do not see this clown.

I would like a refund!! I took my sister-in-law to see him because he was one of the very few that excepted cash pay. She recently had a stroke and brain aneurysm. Dr. Friedman advised us to discontinue blood thinners and his only concern was to refer us to his services to suck more money out of us. After not feeling safe with his opinions we went back to Miami to their original Doctor Who did the surgeon and they are completely upset with him to make the decision to remove her from the meds!!

I was hysterical crying after my visit!!! The doctor was unsympathetic, did not listen, and chalked up all my many medical problems to "anxiety" He contradicted what I said. Which was disheartening. He did not even try to comprehend all my medical conditions and really listen. His only idea was to repeat a test that a previous doctor had already done. If I could have given no stars I would have. Yes, how about showing some concern when someone's face is drooping! Actually noticing it! LISA

Not every doctor is perfect but my overall experience with him and his staff was phenomenal. He is so well-trained and knowledgeable. He was able to help diagnose me and get me back on the track to recovery!!!

I have had several visits. The first was 1 1/2 hrs late. The others were close to on time. The cause for my headaches has not been diagnosed despite three head MRIs and one neck MRI and x-rays. A previous doctor prescribed PT which did not help and Dr. friedman prescribed acupuncture which did not help. Dr. Friedman also tried a steroid shot to my head which did not help. He now wants me to take a different steroid shot to my spine. I am not sure I want to keep taking guesses at what might work.

After sitting in the waiting room for am hour and fifteen minutes... Not a single concern was addressed, he acted completely disinterested, like he could not possibly care less about the fact that we were coming to him for help. The worst experience with a doctor I have ever had. We left with more questions and worries than what we came in with.

Worst doctor I have ever been to. They were 45 minutes late for my appointment. The nurse has BRAIN DAMAGE and literally could not read the questionnaire I was supposed to answer, she needed help. When the doctor came in he did not ask for information from my previous visits with other doctors, did not answer my questions or address my concerns, and generally seemed irritated that I was there. My experience was so poor that I am waiting the few weeks to start over with a different neurologist.
