“Dr. Fried was always by our side through everything and we never felt alone through any surgery. He’s done two surgeries on my daughter, but also built a relationship with her and our family that’ll last a lifetime. He’s a doctor that my daughter looks up to and she aspires to one day be a pediatric neurosurgeon just like him. ” ~Lily, Rumson
