I was guided toward Dr. Friedman by a former coworker more than 5 years ago, and since then he has unequivocally been my go-to resource for helping my body feel and perform at its best. Working as a personal trainer, I've also sent numerous clients to him over the years knowing that a) they will receive exceptional treatment and that b) Dr. Friedman would be an invaluable resource in helping me direct my clients' training to be maximally safe and efficient, especially in cases where clients have experienced chronic or recurring pain. Gaby has been a wonderful addition to the team and has made their operation all the more efficient. You won't find better in NYC, even among practitioners costing substantially more. Moreover, Dr. Vlad and Gaby are both exceptionally kind, warm spirits who work with the utmost professionalism. I would go see them even if they weren't (they're really that good), so that's just the icing on the cake!
I have worked closely with Vlad for over 7yrs. As a movement professional, I rely on him to accelerate my clients' recovery between training, as well as in the diagnosis and treatment of movement related injuries. Vlad differentiates himself with his diverse set of treatment skills that he tailors to the person. He's generous with his time, and sets himself apart with treatment that also fits the needs and time of the individual, rather fitting his business model to the patient.
Vlad brought me back from the brink! I was referred by a good friend who's well versed in fitness & physiology at a time when I was struggling to stay active because of consistent pain and weakness in my neck/shoulder and mid-back. Vlad diagnosed me with a couple herniated discs in my neck (confirmed by an MRI) but encouraged and enabled me to stay active with consistent stretching, strengthening and maintenance. Gaby has been a great addition to the team!
Fantastic crew, wonderful and effective service. For all your corrective spine needs, Vlad is your man. For your deep tissue, muscle relief, Gab is your gal!!
My go to chiropractor/soft tissue practitioner. Dr Vlad and Gaby have not only helped me, but as a fitness professional, helped out countless numbers of my clients as well. Not just for backs, but everywhere. Dr Vlad treats the cause and not the symptoms so you don't have to go back.
Dr Friedman is the real deal. Extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy. 2 sessions with him is as effective as 200 sessions with other providers in the area.
I've been working with Vlad for over two years now. He's the BEST in the business. Super talented, smart, and truly helps me. I'm a former athlete and have special needs for my back, neck, wrist, hips, and Vlad, in an hour can tend to all of my issues, along with, Stim, Heat, Adjustment, Deep Deep tissue correction via the "Graston Technique" bar and lastly- tape to keep me in place for a little while. In my opinion, after seeing many different people in the profession in Manhattan, Vlad is #1. He's one of NYC's best kept secrets. If you have an issue that others can't fix, work on, and or correct without surgery, Vlad is your guy.
