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.

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

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.

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.

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.
