Dr. Peter L Friedman has the following 3 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

Heart Health returned to me!

Yes, Dr. Friedman can be right to the point, and seem somewhat Clinical. It was his skills, confidence, and technical expertise I needed. I was not looking for a warm and fuzzy relationship with my Doctor, I had A-fib that could not be managed with medication and needed results! He performed a cryo-ablation almost four years ago fixed the a-fib, zero incidents since. His expertise allowed me to return to my active life with no medication. Sometimes patient needs the "subject matter expert" who demonstrates confidence in his abilities. Perceived arrogance on someone's level is seen as confidence by others. Always pick the technical expert!

Arrogant, condescending, rude, does not listen. He over medicated my mother and when she complained about feeling drugged and was slurring speech, he ignored her. She ended up in ER where another cardiologist was called in who LISTENED and successfully changed her medication. I have never experienced such rudeness by a doctor and I have been to many!
