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

Dr. Friedman is a throwback to the old days. He is compassionate and always there to help. But he is more than a throwback, he is highly competent and current in his medical skills.He also has a great bedside manner. I have been a patient of his for almost thirty years ! That says a lot doesn't it ?

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

from Dana A in CT February 28, 2018 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

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.

Dr. Jeffrey Friedman is a very capable and compassionate physician. He has been my doctor for over 35 years. When he became an MDVIP Doctor I knew
that I would join the program.... I have faith in him.

from Barbara in CT February 27, 2018 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Friedman for about 30 years. He has cared for me through many health issues, some serious and others just run of the mill colds or sinus infections. I have always felt he had my best interests at heart and has always taken a lot of time with me. Most recently he diagnosed a case of shingles in my ear just as the rash began. I question if many other doctors would… See more

from David in CT February 26, 2018 for Jeffrey P. Friedman, MD

I have had the good fortune of being a patient of Dr Friedman's for over 25 years. Even after moving almost a hour from his office, I continue to see Dr. Friedman. He has always been a caring and responsive physician and knows what it means and takes to be an excellent doctor. I recently had 2 occasions to reach out to him (both on weekends) and he was immediately available and responsive… See more
