The visit was a good one and I appreciated *Dr Friedman's time, attention, and explanations.

He gave no time to ask questions and after about 5-10 minutes indicated that our appointment was done saying "isn't it boring when you're healthy." I understand I am young & healthy. But never have I been pregnant with twins. I do have questions. I was incredibly unimpressed with his lack of attentiveness to me as a patient.

We had concerns from previous appointments with other care providers and Dr. Friedman helped put us at ease. He took my concerns seriously and provided us with helpful information about our concerns and our ultrasound results.

*Dr. Friedman is a knowledgeable doctor. However, he lacks empathy. *Dr. Friedman is very callous in delivering information that was hard for us. It felt like the was no regard for our feelings in severity of the diagnosis we were given.

I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. After earning my undergraduate degree at Harvard College and my medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania, I moved on to an OB/GYN residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital and a Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship at UCSF. In 1996 I moved to Portland, Oregon and have enjoyed working at Kaiser Permanente ever since.

About my practice

Since my second year of medical school, I knew I wanted to go into perinatology. I enjoy the mix of practice and skills that are required in this field: ultrasound, surgery, medical problem-solving, inpatient care, fetal monitoring, genetic counseling, and on and on. No two days are ever the same. I like that, with few exceptions, the culmination of all this work is the birth of a healthy new baby (and in some cases several!).

How I thrive

My hobbies include photography, cooking, wine (for its health benefits, of course), exercising on the elliptical, reading, and playing with our two dogs. I love to travel to faraway places with my wife and our two amazing children.
