Dr Friedman was instrumental in diagnosing my thyroid disease. He didn't stop until we got answers for my symptoms. I was referred to him by my uncle & I hav referred many more. I know 14 satisfied family & friends who are patients!!

Dr. Friedman was great. Extremely thorough in diagnosis, explanation of treatment options, and very understanding of patients financial ability to achieve treatment, his staff is very warm and welcoming. Patients best interest is truly Dr. Friedman's priority.

I had a great experience! Everyone is soo nice and really makes you feel comfortable! I was greeted with a smile and the wait time was minimal. The doctor was fanatic! He was funny and beyond nice as well! Over great place to go highly recommend it!!!
He's the Dr. equivalent to a frat boy. He's raw and likes to make jokes, but the doesn't get that most people want answers. Not jokes. His treatment regime for any tough skin condition is exactly as you'd assume. Slap some meds on it to suppress it, until it comes back worse, never getting to the root. I've been my own doctor and treating it naturally for 2 years with much better results because I got to the ROOT. So glad I woke up.

I wish there was more room to write... In short, I respect any doctor and all the schooling under their belt. However, when my knowledge of my own acne issue are insulted by an arrogant doctor. He doesn't deserve me as a patient.

What a Wonderful Doctor ! Great funny ''Bed-side'' Manner. I felt very Safe & Well Taken Care of. He explained the procedure in detail & made sure to answer all my questions. Took his time and did not rush. Nurse Angie was very comforting & caring. The front desk staff was very friendly & helpful. Wonderful Staff made me feel very welcome to be there. Did not have to wait more than 2 minutes to be seen. Very glad I chose this doctor.

Dr. Friedman is the BEST hands down! my son has seen several doctors for his acne and it has only gotten worse. Dr. Friedman has helped a great deal.
in Riverview,MI |
I was so happy with the care I have received with Dr Friedman. He and his staff are so pleasant, helpful, compassionate and easy to talk to. I would send any of my family or friends to his office with complete confidence that they would think the same way.

I took my son in to have moles removed and he embarrassed and scolded my son for his clothing. I am a parent that is more on the strict side, and I do not allow him to dress in an inappropriate manner. My son was embarrassed and I was furious although I said nothing. I did not go back. Very arrogant man.
Dr. Friedman is awesome. He is understanding, easy to talk to, explains everything, does a great job and has a sense of humor, which helped put me at ease.
