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.

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.

He genuinely cares and is willing to put the time and effort into helping… See more

Dr. Friedman's, professional knowledge, and patience is what impressed us most on finding a new Dr. in our area after a move from N.C. He has a gentle way and simply takes the time to explain and comfort our concerns. We never feel rushed as he focuses on us 100. Getting an appointment and x-rays after a recent fall the same day with results also helped us know he is there for us.… See more
