After wasting my time with SIX local endos, I flew from Colorado to Los Angeles to see Dr. Friedman. I had gained 90 lbs in not even a year and a half (all in my belly and face), had a huge hump, severe mental health issues, etc. He off the bat found my pit tumor that was missed on my prior MRI, and he suspected both cyclic cushing's and growth hormone deficiency. after lots of testing, I got my answer to all of my symptoms- growth hormone deficiency. I have been on replacement for a few months now and my body is returning back to normal. Dr. F has literally saved my life. Yes, he is pricey, and his office is unconventional, but he is so worth the trip and the money. You will probably save money if you go to him sooner rather than later (by not wasting time with other doctors who don't want to help you). Dr. Friedman is an expert in ALL kinds of Cushing's especially cyclic and pseudo-cushings, as well as GHD/hypopit. If you are looking for a sign that you should see him- this is it!
I have a rare brain tumor that Dr F diagnosed, I have been sick for years and threw dozens of Drs that told me I was crazy. Until I found Dr Freidmans who diagnosed and saved my life. I'm in treatment and seeing a brain surgeon to remove the tumor.. I have Cushings disease and would have never gotten help if it wasn't for Dr F!
After having seen over 20 "specialists" and believing in my heart that I would die soon, because all these so called specialists just continously dismissed me, I made the decision to go see Dr Friedman. He is clear across the country from me, but it was the best decision I could have made in my life. He listened! And within the first 15 mins of my appt, he addressed 2 issues that I knew local specialists were missing. He also gave me an answer to my biggest problem, which is why I went. Now 8 months later(testing is extensive), I am finally having relief of my symptoms that have been ongoing for several years. I am hopeful I will be able to undergo surgery before the end of the year and have long term relief-finally!! If it wasn't for Dr F, I never would have had this opportunity to get my life back. My daughter would have grown up without her mom. I only trust Dr Friedman, I have a primary care phys for routine health maintenance-flu, uti's, etc but that is all. I refuse to see any other Md's.
He is amazing at all his work, and he knows what he is doing.
