Very knowledgeable about the reason I seen him for.

May 22, 2019

This was the first time I got to see a specialist dealing with my condition and I had a lot of questions I wanted answers too. I realize the Doctor must stay on a schedule but considering I was a new patient and traveling two hours for my appointment I should have been given more time with the Doctor.

Dr. Friedlander is a very great doctor! I appreciate his knowledge, helpfulness, and thoroughness. He consulted several other doctors in regards to my case, which gave me even more assurance and confidence in the results of my MRI.

Dr. Friedlander and his team saved my life following the rupture of a previously undiagnosed AVM in my brain. I will be forever grateful to him and the wonderful men and women working with him.
