Wonderful experience – calming, educational, engaging from booking the appointment to leaving the office. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Friedmann.

I, my teen son and my older mother all see Dr. Friedmann at the Esquimalt Optical store. Quirky, friendly, extremely clear in his communication and very patient while ensuring my mom understood everything he was saying. I highly recommend him to all, and those who have gone to see him after hearing about him from me have all come back with many thanks for the tip.

Our entire family had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Friedmann in his home/office clinic in Cordova Bay when we were tested for the first time. It is obvious that he is a dedicated professional. He explained every test, even to our kids, and used "layman" terms and other examples to help them, and us, understand the why and how of the testing. He is also very knowledgeable about glasses/lenses on the market BUT doesn't sell them. We really appreciated this because there was no pressure to purchase glasses. He wrote up the prescription for us and told us that we were able to purchase glasses/lenses anywhere we wanted. Even after the appointment, (this was my first time with glasses) I needed further clarification to understand our prescription as I was getting conflicting information and the costs were questionable at times. Lesley, the front desk assistant, was amazing at returning my emails promptly and explaining the different options available and the large difference in costs. This was a great first experience with an optometrist here in BC and we will continue to recommend him to all our friends and family. Both Dr. Friedmann and Lesley are passionate about their work and it shows in every detail. Thank you again, you make a great team!!

My family and I have been going to Dr. Friedmann for over 20 years now. He always attended to us with kindness, respect, professionalism... and a bit of humour, too. He was particularly helpful when it came to a medical issue my senior mother had with her eyes. He took care of it promptly and his diagnosis was bang on! We particularly appreciate the fact that he does not sell glasses. We trust Dr. Friedmann implicitly and have recommended him to our friends, who also now love him.

Dr. Friedmann is an outstanding optometrist. Two months ago I had an emergency situation (an implanted lense had slipped out of position) that he handled with urgency and expertise. Thanks to Dr. Friedmann I was headed to surgery in a matter of days, my eyesight restored within a week. My gratitude to him is boundless.
