Dr. Friedman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Friedman "I have been treating patients for more than 20 years and have been located in Suffern, NY since 2000.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Friedman "At Suffern Podiatry, I know how disabling foot pain can be. That's why I will work hard for you to give you an accurate diagnosis and resolve your foot condition as quickly as possible. Most of my treatments use conservative care to treat your condition. I will educate you about your foot problem and work to answer all of your questions. At Suffern Podiatry I treat children and adults. Some of the most frequent conditions treated include heel pain, ingrown and infected nails, other nail and skin conditions, arch and foot pain, neuromas, peripheral neuropathy and sports injuries such as ankle sprains, shin splints and stress fractures. I also provide a variety of different types of arch supports and custom foot orthotics, depending on your needs. I would welcome the opportunity to help you resolve your foot condition. "
