I have been a patient at VM for years and have primarily seen Amanda Locke. I saw Thomas Curtis once or twice and knowing I had to see a physician for follow up, I chose to see Dr Friedman for a consult. I was extremely impressed with his empathetic approach to my care and the support he showed regarding my treatment. He spent a long time with me, which I appreciated very much, and the visit was productive. I have decided to switch my care to Dr Friedman and will recommend anyone I know to see him. While it took 3 months to get in to see him, it was well worth the wait. Perhaos VM needs to hire more providers now that there are only two providing care for chronic pain patients.

Dr. Friedman is, in my opinion, is the epitome of what I believe a doctor, should be described ....Over the years I've worked with many many doctors (specialists, surgeons beside my two main doctors at Virginia Mason). Some have had no bedside manners, are superior to you and want you to know it, to some doctors that were just needing to retire.Doctor Friedman, in just my opinion, is a selfless doctor who listens. With his knowledge base and my communicating all my aches and pains, is able to make me explore possibilities I hadn't even thought of! He suggests and doesn't demand. My doctor is the most compassionate doctor I've. ever worked with. I've referred all hurting people I meet (which once was even IN the waiting lobby of another doctor)!I just say enough about this amazing and kind doctor!
