Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Great to have Dr. Friedman
A simple visit to the Dr. had surprising results. A visit to take care of a mole on my foot led to Dr. Friedman noticing a small growth by my eye , which he Biopsied. It turned out to be cancerous. He took a lot of time to review all of my options and explained them carefully to help us make the best choice for us. We all agreed that IG SRT, a targeted radiation therapy would be the least invasion and best way to alleviate the cancerous cells from that close a region to my eye. The Dr. and the staff are an exemplary example of knowing the type of treatment that is the best and the level of caring for patients that was so much appreciated by my wife and I. Thank you Dr. Friedman and your outstanding staff

he couldn't understand or cure a simple skin irritation, prescribed a cream which didn't work, when I got back for followup told him it didn't go away, what he said its getting lighter but never try to completely cure it regret my choice to go to his clinic, it was a waste of time ..

I have seen Dr Friedman a few times for some shave removals and also rosacea. His staff was amazing and gave me some samples to try first; then when I found out it would be expensive because my insurance does not cover, he spoke to the drug rep. His staff ended up getting me the medication for well over 70% off. Dr Friedman and his office staff are amazing, friendly, efficient and professional. I also appreciate that he does the removals quickly and while talking to you. He and his staff have an amazing sense of humor and great bedside manner.

I have been going to Dr Friedman for years and he has done a great job treating my facial skin problems. Most times I get samples to make sure the product will help me. His office staff is great and always help you get the best prices for perscriptions by giving you coupons or help ordering online. I have literally saved thousands of dollars with their help. I think the bad reviews are made by up-tight people who have no sense of humor. Dr. Friedman, please keep you sense of humor. 99% of us get it and love it!!

I can have a good dialogue regarding my conditions, challenge him on his diagnosis and feel better about treatment protocol. It’s ok to push back on him if you don’t like where his diagnosis is going.

Dr. Friedman has been treating both myself and my mother for dermatologic conditions for quite some time. I had been to multiple dermatologists previously, but I stuck with Dr. Friedman because he has a great bedside manner, and I feel that he really cares about me as a patient and a person more than my previous doctors. He has a strong no-nonsense approach to treatment that involves getting to the root of the problem and being straightforward with the best thing for you. Highly recommend him.
