Dr Friedling is the best doctor around!

Dr. Friedling is a rare physician who really cares about his patients and will spend as much time as necessary to insure they receive proper care. He answers phone calls any time of the day or night and is truly devoted to the well being of his patients. He is also an excellent diagnostician and is extremely knowledgable in all areas of patient care. His office staff is warm and welcoming and I always feel I am in good hands there. I highly recommend Dr Friedling!

I have been a patient of Dr. Friedling for six years and I recommend him most highly. He is a very knowledgeable, intelligent, kind physician with good judgement. I must emphasize the good judgement, which is not always easy to find. He typically spends at least an hour with you analyzing your problems, no matter how seemingly insignificant. He knows when to be aggressive in treatment and when to be cautious. He is up-to-date on the medical knowledge and is very, very smart. If you are looking for a good general practicioner, look no further.
