they setup and charged for an apoinment- without you know actually involving the patient. i realize there is such a thing as cancelation fees but serioulsy . Not very professional, and we are going to take our business elsewhere.

The doctor and staff are nice an super efficient. They seem to value the patents' time which I love, since I hate to wait in doctor's offices.

Dr Friedman is a terrific doctor. He cleared up my rash within two weeks.

I went to Dr. Friedman once in July for a small wart and a rash on my back. He gave me a prescription for the back rash and sent out a culture to make sure no infection. He froze the wart off with a q-tip. Two zaps. I was literally in and out the front door within 15 minutes, maybe 8 with the doctor. They billed my insurance $315 and me $289. I thought it was a mistake. I've never been billed so much for so little. The only woman I could speak to in billing was rude and insensitive (seemingly actually put the phone down and walked away) and would not help. I would not go back. Epilogue: Diana in billing called back saying she spoke to doctor and they would take $50 off. It helped but still overpriced I feel.

I went to Dr Friedman to have some brown spots removed. He seems to love his job, was attentive and friendly while "freezing" my spots off. He also recommended some products that have improved the color and texture of my skin. The staff was super efficient and got me in and out quickly.

Doctor Friedman is a terrific doctor. He's good at what he does and seems to love his job. Unlike the other reviewer I love the staff! I guess it helps to understand your insurance and pay your bills on time.

Doctor Friedman is an excellent doctor who has cleared my complexion after no other doctor could. I saw the complaint about the staff, but I think they are great and very friendly. Once an office has sold the debt to a collection agency they have no control over what happens, at least that's true in my dental office.

Just wanted to chime in here. They have THE ABSOLUTE WORST billing practice and they only care about money and not the patient. Laura is a joke and completely uncaring to the patient. I went to Friedman years ago...and also referred 3 friends. After being a pateint of his for 2 years I fell on hard times and asked to make payments. However, they would not allow it and said my insurance company had already paid. They ended up sending my bill to collections and would not work with me, even AFTER i paid the bill in full they would not take it off my credit report. I highly HIGHLY suggest you find a better dermatologist who cares about his patients and not just nickle and diming them. Shame on you dr. friedman, shame on YOU.

My father referred me to Dr. Friedman. He did a good job. The problem is that no one informed me of the charges that I would incur. First, I was charged a $150 consultation fee, which consisted of "yes, we should have these spots removed". Then he removed them for another $250. Then I as given the hard sell of purchasing skin products for another $200. I actually asked if I could return them because I couldn't afford it and Laura, the office manager said I could not get a refund, only an office credit. This took place in September. 2 Months later I got a bill for money that the insurance co. did not pay. I thought maybe it was pending so I waited. Then I received letter in January that they were sending this to collection for $70. I called the insurance company and they told me that they paid the $150 in full and 80% of the procedure charges. That was the first I'd heard of the $150 consultation fee. The insurance company said I should only owe $40. I called Laura again and she told me that it would have been $40 but they sent out 3 invoices and charged $10 per invoice, and that they are allowed to do that and that I approved with my signature at the office visit. She told me if I didn't pay the $70 in full, it would go to collections. I left them a message saying I would have to make payments. I set up an auto pay for $4 a month. Laura then left me a message, laughing, saying that would not even come close to preventing me from going to collections. This is where we stand today. So if you want to be penny pinched and robbed blind without any remorse, go to Dr. Friedman and his sweet adorable office manager Laura. It might be his wife, but I'm not sure.

Dr. Friedman is an excellent dermatologist. I see him every quarter because I'm faired skin. I feel very comfortable that Dr. Friedman is catching all of my pre-cancers. Skin cancer runs in my family and I feel confident that Dr. Friedman is preventing me from getting cancer in the future.

Dr. Friedman is one of the most thorough dermatologists I have ever been to. I have tried other dermatologists and none compare. He is not only thorough but knowledgeable on various skin conditions.
