Dr Freidlander and his PA Emily were great in informing me and helping me with my recent diagnosis! I was very happy with the care they showed for me.
Expedient communication after review of my MRA alleviating a lot of tension on my part. Dr. Ricks was quite calming and helpful answering my concerns. Dr. Freedlander just solidified the rest of the visit.
Dr. Friedlander treated my wife for an aneurysm, and the treatment included open brain surgery. The actual emergency was an awful experience, but the doctor and his staff were able to explain the treatment and recovery in a way that allowed me to understand the situation and make good decisions with regard to her care and recovery.
It's always nice to got to these appointments when all of the staff I have ever encountered have been awesome!
This was my first visit and it was very informative and explanation of how we are going to approach treatment for my condition
came in with a concern to get to Hilman where my wife was getting results of a petscan from two oncologists. The staff took me in immediately. Dr Friedlander came in right away and was so sympathetic. it was fabulous. Theyvwere so attentive.
always excellent care from doctor and staff. They care about my health and getting me in to be seen in a timely manner.
Dr. Friedlander performed surgery on me. He did a wonderful job. I traveled from Erie PA to see him. His staff was great. They were very thorough with explaining the surgery. I'm very pleased with the outcome!
very good doctor with experience and good education.
I do not have any complaints. Feel very fortunate to be cared for by the Presby neurological department.
Dr. Friedlander is a wonderful doctor, and I have the utmost confidence in him. I feel very fortunate to be his patient!
Dr Friedlander is the only neurosurgeon I would choose for my current condition. He has been my surgeon in the past in 2012
Dr is a very learned professional who listens to my concerns and responds to them! A quality MD!
I was extremely pleased with my appointment with Dr. Friedlander and Dr. Gross. I found both to be excellent physicians and they spent a great deal of time with me discussing my challenges and possible solutions.
Dr. Friedlander was awesome. He was knowledgeable, encouraging, and fixed my chiari! The residents were different each visit I had, but they all seemed to be knowledgeable and did a good job.
it was all good
Dr. Freidlander and staff have been most helpful during the difficult time of brain surgery and followup care for my aneuryism and the complication of electrolyte imbalance. I met many wonderful people during my stays in UPMC's Presby. The doctors & nurses on the floors and emergency room were great!!!
feeling thankful !
He always comes in with a smile on his face and shakes hands with everyone in the room as he is being introduce to them and shakes hands with you leave.
practice was so good I recommended my entire family to see them
calm confident manner.
Thanks for taking such good care of me :) I feel much better having that thing out. You did an awesome job Dr. Friedlander.

Everthing was excellent
Couldn't ask for better care. Amazing staff and provider!
I'm very pleased that I finally found a doctor knowledgeable in my illness and who seems willing to help me with my illness. I wish I would have found Dr Friedlander 17 years ago
Good first appointment! I felt a part of the discussion and solution!
Physician thoroughly explained condition, tests being ordered & plan of care, greatly alleviating patient anxiety.
the dr friendlander is one ofmy favorite drs' that I have, he's excellent at doing his work and his care for them--keep up the great work
Emily was the P.A. that worked with me before and after my surgery, and I have to comment on how incredibly helpful, kind, and understanding she was. Both she and Dr. Friedlander really made a positive difference in my health care, and for that, I will always be grateful.
May 15 2015 was the first time i visited the office of Dr. Robert Friedlander. I was very scared and His PA Emily was very kind and knowledgeable about my medical condition and explain to me and my family what my test result said . Then Dr. Friedlander came in and went over everything again and explain about the surgery i would have and what would be done and happen. I was very scared about the tumor on my brain and what it would do to me. We I left the office I was still not sure about somethings so later on when i got home I had more question to ask because i didn't to ask when i was at the office and Emily did answer them for me. I am very please to have found Dr. Friederland office for help and everyone in the office is very kind and concerning about you.
Staff was very helpful; saw 2 doctors at my appointment; both helpful and asked me quite a few questions so they could understand me and my health situation better. I felt that they were very interested in me as an individual so they could prescribe my particular health issue that I was seeing them for and specially for me.
