I´m very impressed with Dr. Friedman - he listened, had carefully reviewed my records - covered possible diagnoses and ordered the correct special Radiology tests and treatment.

I have around 4 doctors. see here. Dr.Friedman, Dr. Mahalettj and Dr. Trigg are the main 3. Dr. Schwartz and Diana McFarlane are the other two. ALLOf these doctors are AMAZING!!! I had a very bad experience with a different clinic/hospital and will never see a doctor, ED, etc that I don´t care for again.

Debbie Davenport, PT, was as high quality as was Dr. Friedman, maybe even more, as her assessment was longer and was what the MD based his recommendations on. Good team work!
