There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Everyone seemed to be in a hurry to just push me through.

All of my answers were, "Very Poor." Obviously, there is room for expounding. I would like to do that if anyone would care to contact me about this issue.

As always, Dr Friedenberg was excellent: professional, courteous, friendly, attentive and thorough. So was his resident physician.

Good listener.

I have had on gong concerns about motor neuron disease for over 10 months. I felt this concern was dismissed abruptly with a very basic exam. Was expecting to get an EMG done by a neurologist earlier than Feb. 2017.

Dr. Friedenberg is ok in my book except he doesn't think my jokes are funny.
Nov 15, 2016
Scott Friedenberg is kind and professional. I was panicked when the Botox clinic went through a major transition last year and switching doctors. Dr. Friedenberg and Renee have made this uncomfortable experience for me so much more relaxing.

I liked Scott Friendenberg, MD, we scheduled a return appointment in 6 mins.

He is a good doctor but why where ever I go the staff is usually the ones I have problems with but not all doctor's offices. He is really good for I could tell you that I have been going to him now for a year and 7 months and he could tell me the names of my dogs and he is very polite and he listens. I had told him when I use to see Dr Sal where he use to put the shots and asked him not to put the one shot near my lip to go up in the area Dr Sal did so my lip won't droop and I won't drool and he did and it works good. I have confidence in him and I like him but it is the workers under him and not the nurses either. He is a real good doctor and I do like going to him. He made me feel like a human being and not just another person.

Dr. Friedenberg is exceptional, he is concerned about his patients, not just their pain.
Oct 4, 2016
I've been seeing Dr. Freidenberg for 13 years and certainly can't imagine trading him for another Neurologist. He's always kind, compassionate and incredibly understanding. I trust him in inserting multiple needles into my arm and leg (which is ALOT of trust on my part I assure you, as I abhor needles) He certainly knows his craft well and goes the extra mile without question to make me comfortable. Personally, I couldn't ask for better.

dr Fridenburg is always welcoming and takes a few moments to catch up on me. I have seen him every few months for over 20 yeaes
Sep 7, 2016

May 27, 2016
Dr. showed genuine care for and about my problems.
May 24, 2016
Dr.Scott is the best! (Friedenberg)
May 18, 2016
Both the exam & the explanation of it was cursory & superficial. Additionally some of the doctors comments seemed insensitive for person in this profession.
Apr 12, 2016
The best. He has patience and promotes confidence in me that I have the very best care that is possible. I have many issues -
Apr 8, 2016
He was able to diagnose my illness, when a previous EMG doctor did not.
