I suffered from sleep apnea to the point that I was very tired every day. My condition affected both my personal and professional life. Prior to meeting Dr. Friedman I consulted another ear, nose and throat doctor and a practice specializing in sleep disorders. I got only limited results from the sleep disorder practice and the other ear, nose and throat specialist said that there was nothing he could do for me. Dr. Friedman performed a surgical procedure that cured me. Prior to this procedure my sleep studies showed over 200 respiratory related arousals. These arousals were short and I had no memory of them, but you cant get much rest under those conditions. After the procedure that number dropped to 5. That is well below the threshold for normal. Since then I have had far more energy every day, and I have eliminated my need for naps. All this has made a huge difference in my quality of life. Dr. Friedman has developed cutting edge techniques and implements them with great care. Because of this he has made a huge improvement in my quality of life.

Rare qualities for a doctor

Dr. Friedman counseled me during my scare of head and neck cancer which turned out negative. I will continue to see him for this and any other related issues of the ears, nose, or throat.

The experience with Dr. Friedman was outstanding. I have had several long standing breathing/ sleep issues that have not been properly addressed by other physicians. After a few visits with Dr. Friedman I feel like a real solution is at hand. I'm grateful for his expertise.
