I had a lingering sore throat that worried me. Two people recommended Dr. Friedman and when I saw that he was open on a Sunday I called and got a last minute appointment. I was seen within 10 minutes and Dr. Friedman used one instrument to examine my throat. When I asked him about a nasal scope he said it was unnecessary - that the one he first used was newer - but when I asked again he used the nasal scope too. I felt better that he covered all the bases in the exam, I would recommend him.

This doctor allocates 5 minutes to each patient. Does not asks questions.. Not friendly, does not explain or cares about patient health. There is no question that the doctor only cares about making money.. Stuff besides audiologist is not pleasant. I would never understand anyone who would go to see this dr for the second time. I would never recommend this dr to anyone.

My visits with Dr. Friedman were a waste of my time. I came to Dr. Friedman complaining of dizziness, blurred vision, imbalance, and an inability to focus and concentrate. After conducting a series of expensive hearing tests, Dr. Friedman sent me home without a diagnosis or treatment plan. He told me that my condition would improve on its own in a about a month's time. He was wrong. My condition persisted. If you need an ENT, run, don't walk to someone else.

I saw Dr Friedman today and he listened attentively to what I had to say. Then he examined me carefully and made recommendations. I was extremely satisfied.

Very rude and unprofessional staff; more concerned about getting paid than actually wanting well for the patient. Stay away, look for another doctor/specialist if you need a positive outcome.
