in Rincon, GA |
My husband, Tony, has been a patient of Dr. Friedman for a number of years. We are so thankful that Dr Friedman was on call, at Memorial, when my husband was admitted for an infection in his diabetic/charcoit foot. Dr Friedman has provided excellent care to my husband. The good doctor knows what he is doing and he does it very well. Kudos for a job well done Dr, Friedman! Dr. Friedman always takes time to explain what he is doing and why.
Thank you for your kind comments!

Rincon ofc closed without contacting patients who had outstanding appts. On 12/24/2015 Dr. Friedman's ofc called to reschedule 12/29/2015 appt to 1/7/2016. On 1/5/2016 his ofc called to confirm the appt at the Rincon ofc for 12:30, 1/7/2016. Imagine my surprise when I showed up for my scheduled appt and was told Dr. Friedman no longer sees patients at the Rincon location! Called ofc when I got home & was told to leave my name & ph no and they would return the call. No surprise-no return call
