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.

As a patient of Dr. Friedman since the mid-1990's, I've always received excellent care regarding my high-risk skin needs. In addition to Dr. Friedman, the entire staff is excellent as well.

Dr. Friedman is very conscientiousness and a wonderful down to earth doctor. He goes out of his way to help his patients out and will spend the time to listen to your concerns and answer questions. I personally had a severe situation that he went above and beyond to help to get it cleared up I send my whole family to him. I have recommended him to many wresters over the years. If you want someone who really cares for his patients this is the guy!!!

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.

Dr. Friedman was very knowledgeable with my case. Although looking at my condition, and knowing what the problem was, he still took the tine to listen. He explained everything (not in drs language) in a way that was easy to understand.
