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 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.

Overall
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 (whichis 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.

Overall
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 tohim 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.

I have much confidence in Dr. Friedenberg.
