excellent service

March 06, 2019

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.

February 27, 2019

Emily and Dr. Friedlander were wonderful and I definitely trust them and would recommend them. This was my first visit, and everyone at their office made a good impression.

February 22, 2019

I had a very pleasant office visit with Dr. Friedlander. I initially went into this visit feeling very nervous but I was able to leave with a better peace of mind. I felt like he took the time to listen to the problems I was having and my concerns about them. He was able to relay his thoughts to me in a way that I was able to understand and while I know it is part of his job to be professional, I really admired that he was able to be humorous with me. I understand that he may be a very busy man and I was very pleased with how quickly he was able to see me and how much time he spent with me discussing my condition.

February 20, 2019

The Doctor is a very good listener and wants the best care for me which I greatly appreciate.
