I have been a patient of Dr. Friedman's for nearly 17 years. From the first time he saw me, he has been the best at understanding my many health issues. He believes in a true 'system of care' and makes sure I have the correct doctors addressing my needs. Also, that they 'talk' to each other and ESPECIALLY talk to me. He is a true partner in my health care and always takes as much time as I need with each appointment.
I saw him for a second opinion on a workers comp claim to my neck. To find out it was for the impairment rating. Was in the room for 40 minutes before he came in to see me, then was absenced with my nipples. I spent 5 minutes in that room and he was just talking about my nipples the whole time instead of evaluating me! Then since is works with workers comp he denied my surgery. So I'm thinking of suing him.
