I much prefer your latest method of communicating with me. Before, I got a call from an out of state number. I'd ignored it. The staff is kind to the patients.

Dr. Friedman is an exceptionally knowledgeable dermatologist with a true care and concern for the health and well being of his patience. Matched with a staff that is friendly and helpful. I feel very fortunate to have found such an amazing team to help with my concerns.

My profession requires regular travel; therefore, I schedule my appointments carefully to optimize my time and that of the professionals I am seeing. After discussing my needs with the office, I booked 2 time slots-1 each for the cosmetic and medial issues, understanding I would pay separate deductibles and fees for each. The vein injections were addressed professionally and thoroughly, with an excellent customer service approach. However, the 2 aspects for which I needed to see the doctor were not. The cancer screen raised concerns about which doctor performed the prior biopsy. Dr. Friedman needed to see all the records because he was "very concerned." Then he left the room saying he didn't know what to do next and would leave it up to the medical assistant. She performed spider vein injections and advised I talk to the doctor about available cosmetic procedures. The 2nd medical issue was removal of a painful mole on my back. Dr. Friedman returned and removed it. Lying on the table with only my underwear and a sheet, I asked the doctor if we were going to address the lump on my forehead. This was not a new issue; he injected it last year. I'd identified it as a topic in advance and it would have taken little time to address. He brusquely replied, "Not today" and walked out of the room. There was no explanation (I suspect he was behind schedule; my appt was at 8:30 a.m. and I already had to wait 1/2 hour for a treatment room). There were no instructions on submitting my medical records for the prior doctor's skin cancer screening results, when I should return and/or what to expect. As quickly exited the room, there was no opportunity to stop him to request a better answer. He was gone. Dr. Friedman spent approx.10 minutes with me- not an excessive amount of time. I feel disrespected and that Dr. Friedman does not care about his patients. Although it is a 40-minute drive for me, I am likely to return to my prior dermatologist instead.

Dr. Friedman is wonderful! My children were very comfortable with him. He approaches concerns in a calm, reasonable manner and does not pressure you to go for the most expensive options. Dr. Friedman and his support staff were friendly and most important - competent. Great experience, would definitely recommend this office.

I came to you all extremely self conscious with my face actually hurting from acne. You all listened to my needs and formulated a plan to fix my issues. I am now so happy with a face that needs not one drop of makeup and a back that can wear a tank top proudly. I am a little sad I am no longer seeing you all monthly just because I truly enjoy everyone in that office. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! God Bless!!!

I really enjoyed the straight forward approach Dr. Friedman has. He explained all the options in a very easy to understand manner. Dr. Friedman has a great sense of humor and seems very down to earth and easy to talk to. I am glad I made the switch. Plus the early office hours are the best.

I appreciate the staff answering my endless questions(not all having to do with my visit) and explaining it to me in ways I could understand and presenting me with options; I'm definitely changing from my old DERMA doc to this one!!

My visit was good, it would of been great but the DR did not wash his hands before touching my skin and he did not wash his hands afterwards either.

Dr. Friedman and his staff are wonderful. I have been having some postpartum hair loss and I have been very worried about it. They got me in right away for a consultation, and were very supportive. I cannot say enough good things about them! I also saw Dr. Friedman in his downriver office for acne problems a couple years ago and he was a miracle worker! I had very bad cystic acne, and he helped me feel confident about my appearance again! It has been gone since 2012!! Thank you!

I love going to Cosmetic Dermatology and Vein Center. I go to the Lake Orion location and the doctors and staff are very professional and caring. Every time I go to CDVC it is a great experience due to the great personalities of the whole office. I would definitely recommend CDVC to anyone who is looking for a dermatologist that can meet all of your dermatological needs AND has a happy,friendly office staff.

I had struggled with my skin when I was a teenager and into my twenty's trying everything that was out there including Accutane (twice). Accutane took care of my issues until about a year or two ago when I hit my forty's. Now with all of my frustration and anxiety I decided to go to my insurance website and look for an in network doctor. I read the reviews and picked Dr Friedman. I must tell you I refuse to go out in public without makeup on as I feel like all anyone will see or notice is my acne. I am extremely self conscious about it but I knew I had to do that for the Dr so I could be treated accurately. From the woman at the desk, to the nurse, to Dr Friedman and a Dr (I apologize I don't remember her name) that was there with Dr Friedman not once did I feel like they were just seeing my acne. They listened, communicated a game plan with me, and were quite funny to boot. I just know that I already have a sense of relief and a self esteem boost because I feel like they truly care and want a solution for me. I am hopeful! Thank you!!!!

I was able to get an appt. right away. The people and the Doctor were all very pleasant and explained things to me in easy to understand language. I will go back and refer others to Dr. Freidman.
