I was so impressed with Dr. Friedman’s level of expertise and truly her compassion and guidance as she held my hand during a trying time. She isn’t my regular doctor but stepped in to help.

Dr. Friedman is an AMAZING human being. She is intelligent , knows what she is doing , is super kind and has one of the best bedside manners I have ever seen. I feel so confident under her care. She delivered my second baby and am now so happy to have her for my third pregnancy. She is so caring and very calming during procedures. I feel blessed to have found her. I can not recommend her enough I absolutely love her.

I feel blessed to have Dr Friedman as my doctor. She cares so much about her patients. I had a panic attack years ago just before delivering my son. She took the time to talk to me and distract me. I just had a procedure done this past week and right before I was put under she was holding me . Not to many doctors do that. Thank you for being the kind of doctor you are.

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Friendman (and Dr. Newman). She was not my doctor during my pregnancy but was on call for the delivery of my twins. She stayed with me for all FOUR hours of pushing and delivery (even though it was through shift change on a Friday night). They never gave up on me. Between her and Dr. Newman they were able to deliver my twins safely into the world with a vaginal birth. They are truly the most professional doctors in their field. I cannot thank them enough for their patience, professionalism and ease in a not so smooth delivery. We love them! Dr. Friedman is the BEST!

Dr Freidman takes her job very seriously; she helped detect that I had an open cervix very early stage of my pregnancy and helped me through this process. She was also able to answer all of my questions and assist trough the doubts I had. Above all I’m pregnant again with my third child and I’m coming to see this week. I’m very thankful to her for her knowledge and experience!shes is the best!

After TTC for so many yrs, I finally get pregnant in 2012 at age 41. Under Dr. Friedman’s care, I was able to make my high risk pregnancy with easy. My baby girl will be one next month and I still remember Dr. Friedman’s kind words on delivery day. She even called me at home the night before. I love her and Dr. Kaufman, thanks

Five years ago at my yearly check-up Dr. Friedman suggested to have my yearly mammogram a little earlier as she did not like the look of the nipple on my right breast. Even though the mammogram did not show any abnormality Dr. Friedman send me to get an ultra sound, which came back inconclusive as well. Going with her knowledge and gut feeling she insisted on a biophsy which revealed cancer cells directly under the nipple and very hard to detect. I had a mastectomy,then chemotherapy, and radiation. Everything went well and I have been cancer free for more than 4 years.
There is no doubt in my mind that Dr.Friedman saved my life!
Thank you Dr. Friedman for being such a caring human being and terrific doctor.

I was in a lot of pain prior to visiting the practice. I saw numerous doctors and no one would help me, because they thought I was too young for the surgery (hysterectomy). I was referred to pain management constantly, but felt that it was not the right route for me. I gave up and accepted my life of pain. I visited the practice for my yearly checkup and spoke to Dr. Friedman about my pain. She was very attentive and caring. We tried to get me on the Lupron shot, but my insurance would not cover it. Two months passed and the pain increased; I was unable to walk, sit or even hold my grandbaby. Dr. Freeman consulted with her colleagues and they gave me a 65% chance that the pain will go away after surgery. I knew in my heart it was going to be 100%.

The day of the surgery I was so excited and afraid at the same time. Dr. Friedman came in to see me prior to the surgery with her wonderful smile and I knew I was going to be ok. When I woke up from the surgery I hardly felt any pain from the incisions. I was in recovery for about an hour and was home that day, that afternoon I felt a huge weight was lifted. I went for my follow up visit and Dr. Friedman and her assistant almost didn’t recognize me as I was a changed woman – I came to them in pain and left happy and pain free.

I’ve had few surgeries in my past, but never have I recovered so quickly and without major pain. A skilled surgeon and the da Vinci are the best thing man invented for women. I am fully pain free and enjoying my life again. I am dancing, swimming and walking again. The things that were taken from me, the surgery gave back.

I am very happy and can’t express how grateful I am for the surgery.
