Dr. Friedlander took the time to explain throughly and has an excellent bedside manner that puts a nervous patient at ease.

Wait time was insane. My appointment was scheduled for 10:30 a.m. and I didn't leave until 1:30 p.m. The total amount of time I spent with a doctor or physician's assistant was probably less than 30 minutes. It then took me 30 extra minutes to WAIT to schedule the tests requested because there was only one person doing this and the couple in front of me couldn't answer the questions. Just seemed like way too much time for such a small appointment.
