"I was VERY impressed with *Dr. Freiman and have already recommended him to friends!"
"A very nice concerned man!"
"will not recommend to anyone."
"I feel that I wasn't given a chance to fully explain my condition and concerns about it. He focused on one thing and not my other concerns like he didn't even want to hear them."
"I talked to the people at my work that authorize time off for surgery whom has medical training, and they told me they thought the doctor made it out to be less than what it would be. And if it goes that easily he must be a great doctor, it went that well and even better!"
"Dr. Freiman ppeared competent, though a little brusque and perhaps (where weight-loss advice was concerned) a bit simplistic. I will be following his recommended treatment, though to the extent that this is any indication of my confidence, I looked up all prescribed meds online and provider's educational history and reviews on the Mount Nittany Health website after my appointment."
"Dr. Frieman spent only a couple of minutes with me, and was quite dismissive of why I was there for an appointment. I had brought a detailed medication list which he had looked at before the appt. but when he came in to talk with me he said: do you take any meds for allergies? I know you do, but I left your paper in the other room, so you'll just have to tell me. This seemed irresponsible. Also, Dr. Frieman didn't address any of my concerns and was quite dismissive. Lastly, Dr. Frieman needs to take note of how he interacts with patients. I had filled out all of this information on my form (marital status, children, etc.) but while examining me he asked quite curtly in quick order: Are you married? Do you have children? What do you do for a living? Well, what did you WANT to do before you got sick? What did you major in in college? I felt that these types of questions were inappropriate for the type of visit, and the way he asked them was without caring. Just on autopilot. When my answers were "No" to all of the questions , he showed NO concern for the illness and just continued to focus on what do I DO. I was offended and uncomfortable."
"Spent the beginning of our appointment complaining. Then, was offended that I didn't know his name (my first visit scheduled by my primary so I was unfamiliar). Then, he told me what he thought was wrong before he did the test. Then was smug that he was right. Then tried to prescribe medication without asking about what else was going on with me--despite not having my health records prior to my appointment. I had to insist we not follow his recommended treatment until my other health issues and new medications had time to get better (or not) before adding more medications."
"The doctor did not describe the precautions that he had to take after the procedure, nor the effects of the procedure and how to deal with them very well at all."
"This doctor called me personally the day after surgery to check on me. I was very grateful! Most have their nurses call."
