Dr Friel is fantastic! He is smart, capable and easy to talk to. Nursing staff and their familes also find him really great. He took charge and dealt with an emergency situation ending it in its tracks. I would never go to anyone else for abd surgery. Hospital care at SNHMC is fantastic....capable, compassionate and kind.
