I appreciate the fact that you put up with my frustration and sense of humor regarding my medical conditions because I know that you take them seriously and are always looking at ways to treat them more effectively so as to minimize my frustration.
Dr. Richard Friedland has been my primary physician for many years now.

When he finds it necessary, he refers me to a specialist, such as a Pulmonary doctor, and follows up. I find him intelligent, kind and respectful of my health needs.

That was 19 years ago and since then, weve built a trusting relationship and… See more
Dr. Richard Friedland has been my doctor for 19 years. I feel that he is extremely professional, caring, and empathetic. I know that doctors are always under stress for time, however, he always makes sufficient time to explain and answer my questions. In instances where it is needed, he does timely follow ups on the phone to convey the results of tests and/or evaluations. I had the Wellness… See more
