He is the 4th doctor I've seen trying to figure out why my seizures have gotten worse despite 2 surgeries at a different hospital. He carries out one last surgery on me and it has now been 7 months and I've only had 4 seizures, compared to the 8+ seizures I was having a month before I came to him. Those 4 seizures have been shorter and less severe too. I'm sure if he did my surgery the first time that I would be cured. He can be a little late to appointments sometimes, but hes a very busy man!

Dr. Fried performed left temporal lobe surgery on my 15 year old son to control his seizures. We were grateful to Dr. Fried and the entire UCLA team of doctors, technicians, and nurses who were outstanding through the procedure. It was almost 2 years ago and our son is doing very well. The seizures he had prior to surgery have not returned. We are forever grateful.

Dr. Fried is a incredible neuro surgeon and a great carrying human who talks in layman's terms so anyone can understand. In the nineties he performed five brain surgeries on me, 1 Arteriovenous malformation, 2 partial right temporal lobe ectomie's and 1full temporal lobe ectomy. A emergency craniotomy due to staff infection and cerebral meningitis then put in titanium mesh. Thanks doctor fried,Mullen, Knowlton, and Sandy dwear.thank you all and God bless.
