Dr. Friedlander has been an amazing professional doctor for both of my sons throughout many years . Her expertise and knowledge has been a great comfort for myself and our family especially when decisions had to be made regarding my oldest son who has a rare chromosome abnormality. Not only has she made us feel comfortable and in good hands she has taken extra steps to research the unknowns of my sons condition to insure safe treatments. We are welcomed every time we enter her office not just by her but by her friendly staff as well. I highly recommend Dr Friedlander! Thank You for your excellent care.

Cannot imagine where my son and I would be if we had not found her. She is excellent, patient and a great listener. Sometime's she is running late, because She will spend TIME with you and go over the details, she is worth the wait, never bothered me at all. She has been tremendous in my son's care.

I found Dr. Friedlander's advice helpful. She is short-spoken but that is not always a bad thing. I found her staff extremely friendly and helpful and her care to be satisfactory.

Horrible service, rushed in and out. $300+ insurance charge for less than 2 minute meeting with this doctor every time, isn't it crazy?!
