Patient Comments (2)
Dr Friedman is a good doctor, but I have been going to him for a few years and his office assistant is the worst. Right now I have waited for over a month since my insurance approved my prescription. She makes so many mistakes that I can't even elaborate because I would run out of room. When the mistakes are brought to her attention, it can be weeks before they are corrected. Right now I have waited a month with no response from a prescription. It would almost be funny if I weren't so sick.

Dr Friedman is wonderful. He has helped me so much when other endocrinologists wouldn't be bothered. Thanks to him, I am getting back on my feet.
