Dr. Friedman is now able to offer telemedicine (FaceTime) appointments for those patients in California who live more than 2 hours from his Los Angeles. Those patients who live out of state need to see Dr. Friedman in person, however, followup appointments can be by phone, email or FaceTime. After your initial appointment, your follow-up can be arranged via e-mail, phone or mail. Dr. Friedman's office can help you with your out-of-town visit. Please contact his office for more information.Dr. Friedman's philosophy is to spend as much time as needed with each patient.

Because your session with Dr. Friedman will be packed full of information, you may want to bring a tape recorder to record your appointment. No insurances are accepted, but you will be provided with a receipt for submission to your insurance company. Dr Friedman's rates are competitive.

Dr. Friedman has a unique practice. He is an experienced, board-certified endocrinologist and researcher, he has the capabilities to diagnose and treat even the most difficult hormonal problems. He is compassionate, a good listener and willing to “think outside the box”. He cannot diagnose or treat patients without first seeing them in his Los Angeles Clinic and is unable to respond personally to patients looking for doctors in their area.He recommends patients with hard to diagnose or treat pituitary, thyroid or adrenal disorders to make an appointment to see him by calling us at (310) 335-0327 or by sending us an email. However, he recognizes that some patients are unable to travel to Los Angeles to see him. Therefore, he has compiled this list of physicians around the world that might be appropriate for patients to see. Dr. Friedman has trained with some of these physicians and others he has met at meetings. Good luck in achieving good hormone health.
