The staff has always given me a courteous, rapid response time both in their offices and via telephone.||Respond|

Each employee & health care professional has given me HOPE which is a non-existent emotion for me. I feel CARED for in both offices beyond ANY expectation. I've ever had. I thank you ALL!||Respond|

I don't feel comfortable in doctor's offices, but I feel fine in this place. Thank you to everyone who creates this very friendly atmosphere. I recommend this place to anyone and everyone!||Respond|
You see Dr. Friedman first visit and during numerous procedures, where there is minimal communication. All follow up visits are with a Nurse Practioner (ARNP), who has minimal experience with pain, yet pushes $$$ procedures. He does prescribe narcotic meds, but does not explain full lifetime ramifications of going onto such meds. Does not explain what your full treatment plan/objective is going forward and gets out right rude when you press the ARNP for specifics. Staff is good (except ARNP with minimal pain exp.), but procedures are run like an assembly line. Return phone calls are hit/miss. Takes multiple vacations annually and you receive scripts to cover 2nd month (at least no ARNP). Prices are top dollar. Nothing special, other docs out there. ARNP pushes procedure after procedure, rack up as much $$$ as possible. Dr. Is nothing special. On-going care delegated to ARNP with minimal oversight.

I was in so much pain that I couldn't live my normal, active lifestyle. Dr. Friedman was recommended by my primary care doctor. I had a series of injections and am now pain free! He has great bed side manner and I adore his staff!||Respond|
I'm so fortunate to have had Dr. Friedman at Pain Relief Centers' help me with my work injury. I had a few procedures that were consistent and helped relieve the pain I had from a neck injury while on the job. His staff was friendly and he had nice bedside manner.

||2/17/06||1||1||2||This is by far is the worst Doctor that me and my husband have ever gone to. Our first immpressions were good until we went for a procedure and it was more like a factory assembly line. The doctor was late showing up for surgery then just ran right through his patients like no big deal. Took No time to talk to patients. When my husband tried to talk to him during the procedure he was ignored and told don't worry. The procedure did not turn out as the doctor described. When we tried to call later that day to get help they never returned our numerous calls. We ended up going to our Primary Care Doctor first thing the next morning. When we revisted this doctor my husband was treated poorly. My husband was not helped. Infact my husband was threatened that if he did not do another procedure with this doctor that this doctor would not help our lawyers in any way to their request for medical information. He said that he would tell them that my husband was uncoroperative. When asked why didn't this office return the calls. They said that they did try three times to call, because they docu||Respond|
