She is moody and can be friendly one day and borderline rude the next time. HOWEVER, she is outstanding at diagnosing problems, is fearless in challenging insurance companies on behalf of her patients' needs, and very, very competent. If you can ignore her personality, or lack thereof, she is one of the finest primary care docs you will ever find.

I wish I would have found this board sooner. When I chose Dr. Friedsam as my PCP,my first visit with her was pleasant and respectful. My second visit I was taken back by her rudeness and disrespectful tone but wrote it off to a bad day although in her position as a professional she should have learned how to manage her emotions by now. This past week I had a ECG in her office due to some chest discomfort I have been experiencing. She reported that she wanted me to have a stress test as she stated,"it is abnormal for you." I went to the front desk and mentioned to the tech that I would like to know what she meant by abnormal. She came out and stated, "You have an inverted t wave. Do you even know what that means?" I said, "no, but I could look it up." She stated, "I don't have time to teach you about ECG's."
I am in my 50's have worked in a major hospital in Pgh for almost 30yrs and I have never been talked down to by any of my physicians. They all have been respectful and spoke to me like the intelligent being that I am. I am chosing another PCP. If she is that unhappy with her career choice then maybe it is time to get out of it.

Patricia Friedsam is the worst doctor I have ever encountered. I pray that someone puts a stop to her ill treatment of patients. She turned my grandfather away with "back gas," only to leave him at the mercy of a 90% blockage found after his heart attack, and today, she greeted my mother after an hour wait with this classy line, "don't give me any of your b---s---t, I'm not in a joking mood." She's a terrible doctor and even worse human being.

Dr. Friedsam's manner is one step short of professional negligence and her reputation at local hospitals and with other patients attests to this. Not recommended under ANY circumstances.
