Dr. Freelander is a wonderful doctor. She listens to me and I don' want any other doctor at this time.

Dr. Friedlander was professional, warm, and personable, as was the office staff. I am a new patient (and new to UPMC insurance), and I felt very welcomed.

September 13, 2019

I did not have an appointment and I feel like the provider went above and beyond to fit me in while I was feeling quite sick. I was very appreciative to see my primary care physician rather than going to an urgent care.

Mary Pat is amazing and I enjoy each appointment I have with her. She is respectful, knowledgeable and just plain "cool."

Seemed very relaxed and personable. She put my worries on the forefront in a calming way. If I wasn't super hands on with my own health it MIGHT concern me how relaxed she was. But I wouldn't change her at all.

She is great!

August 07, 2019

She was very personable and cheerful, didn't seem in a hurry at all and listened to what I had to say.

Dr. Friedlander was more patient and thorough than any other doctor I've visited in the last 6 months -- and I have seen several. I chose her for a second opinion after feeling more or less defeated by my previous care provider. The difference was night and day. She explained a *real* plan for getting to the root of my pain which left me hopeful for the first time in months. Throughout my examination she expressed welcome concern and curiosity around other health conditions I face that were unrelated to my scheduled visit, making it clear she cared about the whole picture of my health. The most important moment in our conversation came when she expressed that she favors understanding the root cause of a condition before offering treatment or prescriptions, which to me showed great dedication and diligence in doing what's right versus what may be easy. I look forward to relying on Dr. Friedlander in the future, and I plan to switch my primary care provider as soon as possible.

I'm a new patient & felt heard, understood and comfortable with the doctor.
