What People Say About Dr. William Friese, MD
I recently had a laparoscopic cholecystectomy at Metro Surgery Center performed by Dr William Friese. Not only was he amazing all the staff at Metro Surgery Center was as well. I highly recommend him as well as his team for any surgery. He is the best.

Dr. Friese is respectful, pleasant, easy to talk to and easy to understand. He took time for a conference in his office before examination. He explained lab results and his plan for handling. He offered treatment choices. His office staff was very helpful in taking extra time to contact providers for required paperwork so there would be no need to reschedule the appointment.
