Emily was the P.A. that worked with me before and after my surgery, and I have to comment on how incredibly helpful, kind, and understanding she was. Both she and Dr. Friedlander really made a positive difference in my health care, and for that, I will always be grateful.

May 15 2015 was the first time i visited the office of Dr. Robert Friedlander. I was very scared and His PA Emily was very kind and knowledgeable about my medical condition and explain to me and my family what my test result said . Then Dr. Friedlander came in and went over everything again and explain about the surgery i would have and what would be done and happen. I was very scared about the tumor on my brain and what it would do to me. We I left the office I was still not sure about somethings so later on when i got home I had more question to ask because i didn't to ask when i was at the office and Emily did answer them for me. I am very please to have found Dr. Friederland office for help and everyone in the office is very kind and concerning about you.

Staff was very helpful; saw 2 doctors at my appointment; both helpful and asked me quite a few questions so they could understand me and my health situation better. I felt that they were very interested in me as an individual so they could prescribe my particular health issue that I was seeing them for and specially for me.
