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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Friedman

from Eleanor in CT March 19, 2020 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

From the moment I met Dr. Friedman I knew I was in good hands. After a good physical, never had one so complete, confirming my COPD, but also asthma, finding high blood pressure, and thyroid goiter. Confirmed my heart murmur . From that visit forward he has taken the time to listen and act on problems that have risen since my first visit. The most memorable and recent problem he found, anemia… See more

from Bob in CT March 17, 2020 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

2 Months ago, I called Dr. Friedman's office about symptoms which I thought were due too the flu.
Pleasantly surprised that the doctor would see me that day.
When I arrived, Dr. Friedman greeted me wearing a gown, gloves and mask, as he anticipated I had the flu.
It was good to know my doctor took precautionary measures to protect himself and others. As it turns out I… See more

from Steven in CT March 11, 2020 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

Prior to joining MDVIP Dr.. Friedman was my PCP for over 25 years. He is a throwback to the days when doctors would make house calls. In fact he has done that numerous times for my mother before she was admitted to a long term care nursing facility. For me Dr. Friedman is always available day or night, during the week, on weekends, and even while on his own vacation ! His experience lends… See more

from John in CT March 10, 2020 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

I have many chronic problems and generally have needed expert care my entire life. Dr. Friedman has been my physician for 16years and during that time I have always felt I got the best of care from a man who listens, thinks, tests, thinks again and then provides an expert diagnosis and either begins treatment immediately or gets me to an expert who does. I have every confidence in him and feel… See more

from Gary in CT March 17, 2018 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

My relationship with Dr. Friedman started about 2 years ago when I attended an information sharing session on MDVIP in Southbury. His presentation that night was an amazing experience and I was HOOKED!! We worked closely together on the MDVIP structure of wellness physicals and follow-ups to improve my health. My goal was to run a sub 3 hour half marathon at age 68 and we did it in November,… See more

from Tucker in CT March 4, 2018 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

Jeff: On the anniversary of your first year with MDVIP Marilyn and I wanted to shoot you a quick note congratulating and thanking you for your thoughtful and compassionate health care. We both feel we're in such good hands. And I , of course, enjoy chatting about aging, eating, and life in general during our get togethers. Fine doctoring..... Tucker F.

from Alice in CT March 3, 2018 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

I'm pretty new to Dr. Friedman's practice but it didn't take me long to realize how much he enjoys being a doctor. I feel so comfortable talking to him about symptoms I'm having, knowing that he'll do his best to help diagnose what's wrong and not simply take the path of least resistance. He genuinely cares and is willing to put the time and effort into helping… See more

from Michael in CT March 1, 2018 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

Current event. Came down with Influenza-B w/pneumonia. Dr. Friedman's immediate attention to my serious condition certainly kept me out of the hospital and probably saved my life.

We even face-timed! Never done that before, however I was really failing and being able to actually speak with him in real time was amazing.

I have been with Dr. Friedman for over 25-years. He… See more
