This was the worst experience with any doctor that I have ever had. Dr. Friedman is unprofessional, rude, sarcastic, and condescending. I felt that anything I said was the wrong thing to say. He didnt directly answer one question I had and was in and out of the room relying on his assistant to handle a majority of the appointment, whom he was also rude to. The staff there is wonderful but he is the exact opposite. Id rather go somewhere that does not accept my insurance and pay full cost for the visit than to have to meet with him again.
Dr Friedman was able to diagnose my dad’s Melanoma & helped him seek the best care possible. He takes a lot of pride in his work! Very dedicated to his patients!
I have been going to Dr. Friedman for many years for various skin issues with my family. Eczema, warts, skin cancer, botox, fillers etc. I absolutely love him and his staff. I trust him completely and he has always gone above and beyond no matter the reason we are there. I would highly recommend!
I went to this doctor based off all the wonderful reviews I read...boy was that a bad idea. The office staff, WONDERFUL!! I cant even speak highly enough of them! Dr. Friedman is extremely rude and belittling. He spoke to not only his medical assistant poorly, but treated me like I was a total moron and had no clue what I was talking about. Any questions I asked he gave me an attitude about and medications I had concerns about he would rudely say we arent even to that point yet. Seriously?! He did smell like smoke and simply washed his hands with some Purell. Thank goodness he didnt touch me! Looking back, I wish I would have spoke up and said something during my appointment to him about how rude he is. Im cancelling my follow up and not taking the medications prescribed seeing as how he didnt review them with me AT ALL so how do I know what Im taking and what it will do to me or for me?? This doctor is an absolute jerk!
went to dr. friedmann with a rough spot on my nose. it was biopsied and determined to be squamous cell cancer. i panicked! dr. friedmann and his staff were very calming. told me i had a choice between mohs surgery (with a skin graft) and a new cutting edge medication that he has had success with. i opted to try it and though it warned of many sided effects, i experienced none. 90 days later i had a 2nd biopsy that shows my nose is cancer free. i am so grateful that he came up with an idea to avoid painful, scarring surgery. above and beyond that, the dr and his staff are kind and friendly, answer all concerns and monitor your condition. appts are always on time with minimal waiting. go see dr. friedmann and his great staff. you will be happy you did.
Dr. Friedman is extremely thorough in his diagnosis, explanation of treatment options, and understanding of patients financial options to achieve treatment, his staff is warm and welcoming. Dr. Friedmans patients best interest truly comes first.
Great office demeanor with his staff and himself. The flow of service is like a five star restaurant on a Friday evening!
Love this guy.. He totally puts me at ease n is very knowledgable.. Has the best bed side manner of any dr Ive ever had.. Highly recommend him...
I dont know why, but I tried another Dermatologist. BIG MISTAKE! I found both the staff and the doctor to be rude and uncaring. It seems that all they care about is the money. I came back to Dr. Friedman and I vowed to never leave him again! Dr. Friedman and Alexis takes the time with you to explain and make sure that I am alright, they treat you like family. I think that they are the best team in Lake Orion, MI.
I am happy with the results and he is very friendly.
Talked to me like I was stupid. Would never recommend.
Dr. Friedman is an amazing and truly caring individual! While on vacation in St. Maarten, my husband stepped on a sea urchin and was in agony. Dr. Friedman happened upon us and went out of his way to get my husband the meds he needed to aid in his recovery and avoid infection. Can only imagine how caring he must be with his patients back home! Thank you Dr. Friedman!
What a pleasant experience! Great staff, short wait time and Dr. Friedman is truly fantastic.
Dr. Friedman and his staff are awesome. I went in for some extremely dry skin/rash and was diagnosed with thyroid issues. I have been tested for this by my pcp and neurologist but neither were as thorough and able to find the results needed for treatment. My husband is also a patient of Dr. Friedman. His 6:30 a.m. appointments are great as we do not have to miss as much work. I highly recommend him.
We have been patients of Dr. Friendman for over 15 years. He is a wonderful practitioner and he has done both of us a great service. Even where my husbands skin cancer was concerned, he performed surgery in his office on my husbands arm and there is no sign of a scar. He is constantly checking us as both of us have the skin type that is prone to cancer. We are very lucky to have him watching out for us. And his staff is the best, and we both see a lot of doctors for different reasons and his staff is friendly, polite and even fun to be around.
Dr. Friedman not only looks at you from a derm perspective but also overall medically. Went in complaining of adult acne & some unwanted hair growth & came out diagnosed with PCOS. My primary care doc just blew off the diagnosis. Switched to a new doc b/c I felt like I wasnt being heard by my pcp but had to wait over a month for a new patient appointment with the new doc. About a month after being diagnosed by Dr. Friedman, I started having lady issues that lasted for 2 months straight before I was diagnosed by primary care & ob/gyn with PCOS. Even after my new pcp & ob/gyn began treating me with medications, Dr. Friedman suggested another one to combat the acne & hair growth problems that werent being taken care of with the others that I had been given. Wish my original pcp wouldve been as caring & thorough as Dr. Friedman, & maybe I wouldnt have had to suffer for those 2 months. Ive spoken to some of his other patients, & theyve had the same thing occur, though their problems were completely unrelated to dermatology. Also, the early morning appointments are awesome, so you dont have to take time off from work. Plus, its super easy to get an appointment since they are willing to work people into their very busy schedule. The office is usually packed but is efficient & wait time is short, especially compared to most docs offices. Great job, Dr. Friedman!
Dr. Friedman and all of his staff are wonderful, wonderful people. I have been treating with Dr. Friedman for several years and I still have no thought of changing doctors. He is thorough, kind and caring and his staff is the same. They remember your name and he sang a silly song just to put me at ease during a procedure once. He and his team work well together and make you feel like family. I think over all the years I may have waited more that a few minutes once, and thats amazing for doctors. Appointments can be scheduled at odark thirty in the mornings to help avoid interference with your work schedule, and they do everything to accomodate your schedule. Dr. Friedman is very particular to minimize scars. He cares. Hell take all the time you need to talk to you and will answer all your questions until you are comfortable. I cant say enough good things about his office. Im very pleased.
Dr. Friedman is a character. He is unlike any other doctor Ive met. A little rough around the edges the first time you meet him but after 34 years of dealing with a reoccurring issue and multiple doctors, hes the only one whos taken the time to get my diagnosis right.
I absolutely love this doctor and his staff. Wouldnt recommend anyone but them for any kind of dermatology needs.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful results. Went in planning to spend hundreds (or more). Dr Friedman talked me off the cliff by suggesting small steps. He could have easily taken advantage and sold me treatments that were more expensive. Instead, we started slow. Am loving the gradual changes. Im hooked on Dr Friedman. Staff is terrific!
