A lot of the reviewers are commenting on Dr. Friedman as an IME. These people have an axe to grind; they were denied benefits because he reviewed their cases and found them lacking. Negative reviews are to be expected. I have nothing to do with the IME process; I went to Dr. Friedman as a private patient for psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Summary: Friedman did a lot of good for me. He got me thinking, he helped me open up some things, and he even helped me resolve some things. He pointed out what now seems obvious but was utterly obscure at the time. He's not perfect (good luck finding that!), but he's worth talking to. You won't find an analyst who is more committed to the process. However it works out, you will be enriched. If you have some time and money, give the process a chance.

Seeing DR Friedman for an IME for an LNI claim? You don't stand a chance. These LNI dr's that are members of LNI's Panel have a long standing relationship with the companies they subcontract through and are used because they can be expected to find nothing related to the job of injury, low ball you on your disability, or just say your as good as new. This man is without a soul and you are going to best devastated when you read his report to LNI.

He is not a compassionate man. He is not your friend. His questions and attitude towards you will leave you feeling worse about yourself.
