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
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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.

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
Just completed my 1st year with Dr Friedman and I'm very happy and much healthier and Thank you very much.
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
