Dr. Henry Friedman, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

I am a psychiatrist trained in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. My practice has been directed at individuals who have difficulty finding satisfaction in both their work and love lives despite having achieved considerable success in their professions. I have been seeing individuals and couples for over 30 years and I am experienced with providing combined therapy, including medication and psychotherapy. I work with patients from 1x/week to 4x/week depending on the patient's need for more or less intensive therapy. While the past as a determinant of the present is acknowledged the work is done in the here and now. As a psychiatrist-psychoanalyst I can offer the best approach to helping patients move forward in their lives. I believe that my ability to prescribe drugs where needed for depression or anxiety when combined with my understanding of the sources of emotional distress on an interpersonal basis is uniquely effective. I DO NOT, HOWEVER, SEE ANY PATIENTS FOR MEDICATION ONLY, PARTICULARLY WITH REGARD TO ADD AND ADHD. Many individuals who seek my help are deeply unhappy and suffer from the choices they have made in life when they lacked the assertiveness necessary to get more from their work or love situations. I have been able to address the present sources of unhappiness without neglecting the past sources.

The office is a home office. There is no sign or mention of it so when I got there I rang the doorbell and no one answered. I called and there was no answer. I eventually went to my car andwaited again for 10 minutes. When I went back his wife or significant other answered and seemed to be a bit miffed that I didn't just come in, but there was no indication I should. When I got in Dr. Friedman seemed a bit miffed because he wasn't sure why Zocdoc said he had an appointment. He also didn't do the treatment I needed and so within a minute I was out the door. The whole experience was quite unsatisfactory, especially that he provided no guidance on where I might seek help elsewhere.
