      My 8 year son broke 2 bones and Dr. Friedman was equally amazing to both my son and us. He has a calming bedside manner, is knowledgeable and kind. I couldn’t have ask for a better doctor to care for my son during this stressful time.

      I don't know how anyone could leave a positive review this for this Dr. He was the most rude, obnoxious, dismissive and insensitive physician I have ever gone to seeking answers for my arm pain. He did not seem to care at all. He did not make any recommendations for further treatment options, other referrals or follow up to relieve my pain. All I took away from my appointment was a $141 bill and a severe disliking for this doctor. He was the worst ever!!

      We had a wonderful experience with Dr. Friedman where it was determined that our 2 year old daughter needed a cast for a buckle fracture. He was knowledgeable and was able to guide us through this process. He communicated effectively and helped put us a bit more at ease. We appreciated he was able to see us the same day we called for an appointment and squeezed us into his already busy schedule. He had a great disposition and was very approachable. That is why we would highly recommend!
