      Roger Friedman gave me a facelift a few years back. I look good but I am in my 4th year and continue to suffer with daily nerve pain. I need to take a medication that works as a nerve block 4 times per day. That is down from the first 6 months when I needed 12 pills per day. I cannot wear earrings or tolerate my hair or sheets near my face. When I complained, Roger showed no compassion and took no personal responsibility. I described more on my google review where there is more space.

      Almost 6 weeks out from surgery and I can not say enough about Dr. Friedman and his skill. I put off having this surgery for years. He corrected my nose beautifully - its so cute and most of all it looks like me. I had zero no bruising and minimal swelling of the nose just days after surgery. I came out of surgery feeling great and able to breathe so much better than before the surgery! He is amazing. He is incredibly skilled and makes you feel so comfortable throughout the process.

      Thank you Dr. Friedman for making this so easy. From the beginning, I felt completely comfortable with the information and your expertise. I couldn't be happier and only regret I didn't do it sooner.

      Dr. Friedman is a highly skilled surgeon and one heck of a nice guy to boot! He is patient in explaining all procedures and his caring, compassionate demeanor immediately puts one at ease. I had a complete facelift about 6 months ago and I could not be more pleased. I am so very glad I went to Dr. Friedman for my surgery. I will most definitely use him again if I should need any type of plastic surgery. Let me also say that Dr. Friedman's staff is absolutely superb! A winning combination!

      I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Friedman and staff. His expertise, kindness , compassion and skill as a surgeon is unmatched. After a significant weight loss I decided on a tummy tuck to get rid of my excess skin despite all the exercise I did. The results are amazing I feel like a new person and have a much easier time exercising and reaching my fitness goals. Dr. Friedman gave me back the self confidence I had lost for so many years.

      I highly recommend Dr. Friedman. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about him and his staff. He truly cared about my wants and spent a lot of time answering my questions to ensure I was comfortable. As a result, I got exactly want I wanted and couldn't be happier. Surgery was easy and recovery was painless. Dr. Friedman called me the night that I had my surgery to check on me and make sure I was doing alright. Excellent bedside manner.
