    How was your appointment with Dr. Friedman?

    Jul 18, 2021
    Dr. Friedman was recommended by my boss who had hand surgery. I read reviews, but decided to take my boss' word. I am glad I did. I went to see Dr Friedman for a 2nd opinion as the first surgeon I went to wanted to give me cortisone and therapy after which possibly surgery (unless I want the surgery now). Dr. Friedman was pleasant and so thorough in examining my hand, in comparison with the 1st guy, it was day and night. Dr. Friedman checked pretty much every inch on my hand and wrist. I can't for the life of me understand how anyone thought he has terrible bedside manners. I could immediately see the level of care and difference between the two doctors. Dr. Friedman told me cortisone is unnecessary and that I will not need surgery. Takes 3 months for tears like mine to heal, it's normal. Yes, he wasn't in there for a half an hour chatting with me, but the other guy was and he was a kook! 15 min with Dr. Friedman are 100% attention on what's important and it's worth 30 min with others.
