Emergency surgery yesterday. Detached retina. I do not give a flying flip about his personality. He is a remarkable surgeon and I am grateful to him. His staff was great too. I am 60 years old and a medical professional. I never met him or heard of him before yesterday because I’m not from here. I have no personal reason to recommend this doctor. He is highly skilled, competent, and well qualified. I rate my overall experience as excellent. He was polite and appropriately friendly. If you want warm fuzzies and smiles go to Disneyworld. If you need a darn good eye surgeon, I recommend Dr. Friedman.

I can testify firsthand that all of the bad reviews about Dr. Friedman are true!!! Several years ago, I worked as a Nurse at a Local Hospital in Winter Haven Florida. Dr. Friedman was legendary for being a horrible person to work with in the operating room. Several patients have even had him writen up for yelling at the staff!!! His surgeon skills were below average and he would blame his bad skills on everything from the staff, instruments and even the hospital equipment. He has had over 7 partners, 6 Surgical techs, and several wives, in the last 10 years. That should speak for itself. He would be the last retina Doctor on the planet I would see. If you have to visit his practice for insurance reasons, ask for his partner Dr. Moinfar. Dr. Moinfar is sweet, kind, smart and a very good surgeon.
