I have a lot of faith in dr. Freidman. I know he's well-trained, and has the latest equipment to keep my skin healthy. Super friendly knowledgeable doctor. His explanations of procedures and products used are always in-depth and extensive.

I've been going to Dr. Friedman for more than 30 years. His knowledge and expertise are invaluable. Both my husband and son now go to him as well. He's worked wonders with my son's teenage acne. The entire family is very happy with the care we get from him. The only thing that's a little irritating is he doesn't validate for parking, however, the cost can be recouped via your HSA.

He is the worst doctor I've ever encountered in my life. Clearly running a shotty practice with intentitions to scam patients out of as much money as possible while doing as little work as possible. Not sure how he is still practicing but he is clearly not fit to practice medicine. Basically he 'misdiagnosed' me and made me believe I had some skin issue that I actually did not and tried to tell me I needed several $1000 treatments. Consulted another doctor who told me he was straight up lying.
