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 ?
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.
