I was extremely pleased with my appointment with Dr. Friedlander and Dr. Gross. I found both to be excellent physicians and they spent a great deal of time with me discussing my challenges and possible solutions.

Dr. Friedlander was awesome. He was knowledgeable, encouraging, and fixed my chiari! The residents were different each visit I had, but they all seemed to be knowledgeable and did a good job.

Dr. Freidlander and staff have been most helpful during the difficult time of brain surgery and followup care for my aneuryism and the complication of electrolyte imbalance. I met many wonderful people during my stays in UPMC's Presby. The doctors & nurses on the floors and emergency room were great!!!
