It took me 6 months to decide to updat, but here it is. I am now 6 months post op and have lost 108 lbs..I have the greatest surgeon in Portland, but of course I am partial.
If I had to do it all again I would do it in a minute. I started this journey at 326 lbs, I am a whole new person now.
I enjoy walking, bending over to tie my shoes, crossing my legs,
laughing without wetting myself, and the new life I have been given.
Surgeon: Eric Friedman, M.D.
before June 2000
as of Jan 2001
My first impression was great!!
No he is wonderful..
Very freindly and helpful..
I am very happy not only with the way the surgery was explained, but also very happy with the aftercare I have recieved.
I would definately reccomend him to others...Now that I have dealt with Dr. Friedman for 6 months I need to add that he is compassionate, caring, and although he is quiet he has a great sense of humor.
The best advice I have for you is ask questions. If you dont ask you won't know!
Dr. Friedman has great followup care, he takes a special interest in all of his patients, I find him easy to talk to and relate to.
As far as his competence my husband and I were thrilled with his ability, to the point that my husband had him do his hernia surgery.
