Dr. Friday is one of the couple specialists I see (out of many) that makes me feel seen and understood. I am complicated and she makes me feel legitimate.
Dr. Friday was very knowledgeable.
Dr. Karen Friday has been my cardiologist for very many years, she is very concerned about my well being and has my trust in every way.
Dr. Friday was very personable, extremely knowledgeable and worth the wait! I never felt rushed during my visit with her - she listened to my concerns and addressed them.
Even tho I do not have a classical experience of her disease-symptom specialty, I would have appreciated a greater explanation into the symptoms I am experiencing.
Dr. Friday explains everything to me.
Dr. Friday is an excellent doctor who has cared for my mom for over 15 years. This particular visit was concerning decisions that were especially difficult to discuss... ie., regarding possible "end-of-life" options for my mom. Dr. Friday was outstanding in showing genuine care & concern for my mom, & was extremely patient & thorough in explaining everything to our family & also going out of her way to make extra time for our visit to her office.
Excellent care.
Dr. Friday has always been very good at thoroughly & thoughtfully examining mom & addressing any questions or concerns that are brought up during the visit. Dr. Friday.
Very knowledgeable.
She didn't seem concerned with my worries about my health.
Dr. Friday is amazing and has been extremely helpful!
Provider was rushed & had not received my file. Was impatient & I heard her yell at nurse telling her she was late. Made me feel bad.
All very good.
