Specialties

Dr. Jack Friedman has the following 2 specialties

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN HE'S DANGEROUS!!!

I wish i could give him a negative review. My 71 year old Mother was seeing Dr. Friedman until I took her in for an appointment. After waiting 55 minutes, he saw her in the office for no more than 5. She was escorted out to the waiting room where Friedman promptly demanded a check from me for the office visit. Only after he stuffed the check in his pocket did he hand her a prescription and escorted us out the door. I spoke with her pharmacist only to find out this Doctor was prescribing her a 21 day supply of medications instead of a normal 30 day. Forcing her to come in the office every three weeks instead of four weeks; more money this way. The nauseating drug's he was prescribing: 1 for pain, 2 different anxiety meds, 1 for sleep, 1 for depression, 1 for bipolar disorder? a medication for schizophrenia?? She has NONE of these disorders!!! After reading the reviews, I asked my mom if Friedman had treated her like this: yelling at her, hanging up on her... Yes, she had experienced it all at one time or another. If you're seeing Dr. Friedman or if you're thinking about seeing him, please don't, find a competent physician who cares about your heath and is willing to listen to what you have to say. I'm happy to say that we have found her a new physician and she is improving. It has become very apparent that many of her problems were being caused by the medications he was prescribing. He also has a Burbank office. STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN HE'S DANGEROUS!!!

Very Rude, Disrespectful and Inconsiderate

I've been reluctantly going to this doctor since 2014 and I can say I've been verbally and emotionally abused. It's about time I find a new professional Doctor who I can truly depend on.

Utter lack of compassion and shady to boot

I must say I literally think there is something wrong with this psychiatrist. He mocks patients, has zero bedside manners, has very dodgy pay in advance demands (after reiterating he DOES accept your insurance) and he has no finesse or compassion in the therapy/talk aspect of a visit whatsoever. Save yourself the trouble. He has NO business being in the business of care of any capacity. I literally fear for people. I can't imagine someone truly needing help, feeling vulnerable, and being at the behest of this sociopathic ego maniac.

Good and Considerate Doctor

I would ignore the negative reviews below, they sound like they're written by the same person. Obviously a drug seeker not getting his way. I've been a patient of Dr. Friedman for a couple of years and am quite satisfied with his service and professionalism. He listens, he's personable and makes reasonable decisions about your care. He's not a psychiatrist as some reviewer claims. He is board certified in Anesthesiology and specializes in pain management and addiction. I would recommend him to my friends and family.
