    How was your appointment with Dr. Friedman?

    Aug 23, 2022
    Flying out from Charleston, SC to San Diego to have my surgery with Dr. Friedman and Dr. Schwartz was the best decision I have every made in my life! They performed a retrosigmoid carniotomy on my 2.3 cm acoustic neuroma and not only got the whole tumor out but were able to preserve my hearing! The best at what they do!
