Dr. Michael K Friedman has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Why the state of WA. has allowed this man to continue abusing injured workers for many many many years is beyond comprehension. There is no one within the LNI claims mangers system that doesn't know what takes place behind a closed door. Same for the companies that Friedman subcontracts through. Forget about writing a complaint about him to LNI, WA ST Department of Health or the companies that he works for. You can forget about writing to Joel Sacks the director of LNI and definitely don't write anything to Jay Inslee. Inslee never sees your letters of complaints, as they are just passed off back to LNI and you will have done yourself no favors: you will only make matters worse for you. There of thousands and thousands of pages sent to Inslee and Joel Sacks. The "pattern" of complaints has already been established and ignored. Get it through you head; they don't care!!! No one wants to stop the fraudulent Independent Medical Exams (IME). Your only line of defense is to get smart and hide a recorder. When a government agency puts a WAC in place that only pertains to injured workers and not the rest of the population; there is a very good reason for that. MONEY! You might as well beat your head against a brick wall, it will feel good when you stop. Forget about calling any news agency or news paper. It's been done before and no one cares. Forget about your local police agency. Forget about asking to be wired for the exams, as "that's just not going to happen". Forget about calling the FBI or the Dept. of Justice. Been done many times already; No one cares. You are dancing around the political third rail. Forget about the Attorney Generals Office------they represent LNI and all of the State of WA. Dummy UP!!
The perfect 5 star ratings are fake. After so many bad "real" reviews, some shill comes along and writes a 5 star review. Don't be fooled, the bad reviews are the truth and the real Dr. Friedman. I would highly doubt that this little sadist doctor has much or any real patients. He is a play for pay doctor and will write just what the insurance company wants to see. He has been doing this for years and years. Just read the real stories about Friedman, I 'm sure you can spot them. He is a very scary doctor who is emotionally bankrupt. It's all about the money. 12 patients a day for a grand a piece. Friedman's real job is to close your claim and he does it behind a closed door.
Dr. Friedman helped me through a particular rough patch after moving to Seattle from across the country, starting a new job and dealing with depression and anxiety. He was VERY thorough and very helpful. Definitely not one of those doctors that tried to wring every dollar out of you. Would highly recommend
The below comment about Friedman is right on. I doubt if Friedman even has a practice as he is the "STAR PLAYER' for ExamWorks and MCN. When you see Friedman you are in the presence of pure evil. You will remember his report about you for the rest of your life, as it goes beyond the pale because doctors without a conscience have no remorse. No one is ever going to stop him, as he is well protected by Provider Review, and they have seen and heard the same complete over many, many years. It's all about the money and corporate greed will always take precedence over a human life. It is a fact, truth and reality!!!!
If you are seeing him for a state claim- he won't spend any significant time with you- he will dictate your answers as you are giving them and if you try to point out something isn't accurate he'll accuse you of being uncooperative or changing your answers. Be prepared to be shocked when you get his report because it will have things in it that you didn't talk about- and his "findings" will be in favor of the state. If its a pain issue from an injury he will say it is all in your head- even if x-rays show otherwise
