I moved out of state and drive almost 2 hours just to see Dr Friedman. Best Dr Ever. I do not EVER want a different Dr because it took me over 40 years to find a Dr that doesn't put himself on a pedestal like others. He always discusses a new treatment with me and asks if I would like to try it before he actually prescribes it. We look on computer to see side effects. We decide together if it's a good fit. It doesn't matter how far away I move, I will always make that drive.
