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.

I found dr. Friedman on this website. I am so grateful that I am able to call him my doctor. Staff was just as compassionate.
Very intelligent and knowledgeable. By far, best experience I've ever had with a doctor. Jasmine
