Roger Freidman is the worst Dr. ever. He should not practice. He caused my daughter to lose many sight nerves. He simply told me that he ignored to check my daughter properly because she has a rare disease. Dr. Freidman caused so much physical (many surgeries that could be easily avoided) and so much emotional pain (my daughter was constantly bullied because of the way her eyes looked and loosing vision is a scary feeling). I beg of you, please don't let Dr. Friedman to care for your loved ones.

Dr Friedman has been my son's Ophthalmologist since he was a toddler. He is wonderful with children, as is his assistant who does the pre exam work. The front office is a little icey, but I'm not here to rate them. We love Dr. Friedman.

Dr Friedman recently saw my 7 month with clogged tear ducts. My son had chronic eye infections as a result. When we met with him he was kind and explained our options very well. He and his staff seem to work very well together and that makes for a very pleasant environment. He came highly recommended by both our pcp and friends. I will be recommending him as well.
