My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have been practicing medicine for 42 years and have worked dillengently to improve the lives of my patients as well as their health. The close and personal relationships I have with my patients is not only important to me, but it is also essential to their care. I have the time to really get to know my patients which helps me keep them healthy, both physically and emotionally. Always being available to my patients allows me to address their problems and concerns before they grow into emergencies and become more complicated. Practicing as an MDVIP-affiliated physician has enabled me to become my patients' trusted healthcare partner, maintain my medical skills and education as well as to continue to be enthusiastic about my chosen and rewarding profession.

Dr. Friedling is absolutely the best doctor I have ever had. He is brilliant. He is a caring and very pro active doctor in my medical experiences. He takes time to explain everything...makes certain I have all necessary tests done.. Follows up with results each and every time. Gives me the best advise. I am so lucky to have Dr. Friedling as my medical doctor.

from Frank in NY April 4, 2017 for Steven P. Friedling, MD

I cannot express my gratitude for my family Doctor, Dr. Steven Friedling of Smithtown, NY. When my wife Jeanne was taken with a simultaneous brain bleed in December 2016, as usual Dr. Friedling was there for us 24/7 with professional medical help, advice, and a sincere and caring attitude. Never have I met a physician who provided such professional care with the demeanor of a true and caring… See more

Personal caring does not rush the appointment with you listens to what you have to say

from Ora in NY February 26, 2014 for Steven P. Friedling, MD

Dr Friedling is always there for his patients. A friend of mine ,a nurse, who worked with Dr. Friedling said he was always called the Sherlock Holmes of Medicine because he never quit investigating until he got the correct answer. I have called him on his cell when I needed him and he, even on vacation, is ready and willing to help and answer question. I am so lucky to have him as my… See more

from Libby in NY February 24, 2014 for Steven P. Friedling, MD

Dr. Friedling has been my primary care doctor for many years. I am 83 years old and have reached this age due to the excellent care he has given me. It is very comforting to know that he has always been there for me no matter what time of day or night that I might have to call him. I consider myself very fortunate to have such a wonderful caring doctor who cares about his patients, and… See more

from Robert in NY February 23, 2014 for Steven P. Friedling, MD

My wife and I have been patients of Dr Friedling for over 25 years. When he told his us he was moving into the MDVIP program, we did not hesitate to continue our relationship with him, despite the added cost. He has always been caring and attentive to our medical issues and we have never felt rushed. Under MDVIP we have the added benefit of having his cell number in case of an emergency. I… See more

from Ronald in NY February 14, 2014 for Steven P. Friedling, MD

Dr.Friedling has treated my family for over 30 years. He has provided us with the best care I could ever hope to have from a physician. Our whole family is indebted to him for his knowledge, compassion, expertise and dedication to our complete well-being. Recently, on a routine examination, he found that I had an elevated heart rate. He immediately sent me to the emergency room and visited me… See more

from John in NY February 13, 2014 for Steven P. Friedling, MD

I was suffering a lot of discomfort and was unable to contact the Doctor who performed the rectal procedure. I called Dr. Friedling on his CELL PHONE and he quickly diagnosed the problem and called the pharmacy to prescribe medication (which alleviated the condition within a few hours). It was only at the end of the conversation that I became aware that Doctor Friedling was on vacation in a… See more

from Barbara in NY February 11, 2014 for Steven P. Friedling, MD

Dr Friedling continues to be available, informed, attentive, and positive. His office staff is caring and responsive. Last summer, I called the office to tell them that I was ill and described my symptoms. They immediately contacted Dr Friedling who called me within several minutes. Because he knew my history and recognized that I'd been ill with this problem previously, he was… See more
