It’s All About Family!

Welcome to our Patient-first primary care office! We all miss how medicine used to be with the family medicine doctor being more than just another faceless company to call when we had a problem. We believe medical care is more than just another contractual service in our lives. It should be personal, individually tailored, and delivered in a well thought out way which take into account all aspects of what is best for the patient. The only way to do this is by knowing our patients, and making sure our patient know and trust us. We are family-owned, and old-fashioned personal medical care is in our blood! Dr. Lawrie Friedman’s father was a General Medicine Physician, and his three children are all doctors as well!

Our office provides all the features of a modern-day office with web messaging, secure online access to your medical records, and a cloud based secure system with one the leading electronic medical records in the country. We combined this with a patient friendly scheduling system which allows us to have much shorter wait times for both scheduling and in our waiting room than typical offices. This allows us to spend more time with our patients, hear out their concerns, and address their issues as needed. We keep “Family” in Family Medicine.
