Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I am board certified in internal medicine and have been practicing both internal medicine and primary care in Newtown, Connecticut for 35 years. My philosophy of practice has always been to put my patients’ care first which means that my visits are unhurried and thorough with a focus on early diagnosis, health maintenance and preventive care. My office incorporates a wellness center with programs that include physical assessments, exercise counseling and nutrition counseling.

I care for patients with chronic disease and physical disabilities to bring them to their highest level of functioning in order to return to a full and active lifestyle. Our fitness programs are also utilized by patients who strive to achieve healthy living and well-being. We offer stress reduction groups as well.

I believe that a close collaborative relationship should exist between the patient and the physician. We are a team working together to achieve the ideal outcomes for your ongoing health. MDVIP shares my philosophy of healthcare delivery and through my affiliation with the national leaders in personalized healthcare, I can further enhance the level of care I am able to provide to my patients.
