Dr. Friedlander is an incredible neurosurgeon. He is personable, caring, and inspires confidence. I trust him so much. I hope that I never need to have another brain surgery, but if I do then I would definitely return to Dr. Friedlander. His coordination of care across specialties (neurosurgery, MS specialists, oncology, etc.) is unmatched; he keeps everyone involved in my care informed and coordinated. I feel very comfortable with him and am so grateful that he was able to perform such a successful tumor resection for me. Thank you for everything, Dr. Friedlander.
