Good psychiatrists are worth their weight in gold and just as rare. I am fortunate to have connected with Dr. Judy Friedman. While in a state of personal crisis during COVID, I could not secure an appointment with a psychiatrist that wasn't weeks into the future. I discovered Dr. Friedman online; she took me on and provided a virtual in-take session the same week. Since then, she has provided effective therapeutic diagnosis, guidance, and medication management. Looking back, I'm in awe at how much progress I've made. In multiple ways, I feel like a new person. The anxiety and heartbreak are in the past, much credit to her support. Dr. Friedman's style is a bit "old school"; she can be refreshingly direct but always empathetic and non-judgmental. She's also a responsive doctor who will answer your call/return texts promptly. If you are looking for a psychiatrist to provide real therapy and responsible medication management, Dr. Judy Friedman is the best I've experienced. - BB

I found Dr. Friedman after seeing several other doctors for my high anxiety—before her, I thought I wasn’t the therapy “type” and didn’t have a lot of hope. Even in our first couple of sessions, Judy Friedman seemed to zone right into my family dynamics and sources of my anxiety. What was really helpful was that I had always seen change as something dramatic, but over our meetings, I realized that some simple changes could have major positive impact on my mood. My family and co-workers have noticed the change. She helped me visualize my best self, and start moving towards it.

Very empathic, down to earth therapist and physician. Therapy sessions, which have now switched to telephone & on line in recent weeks, are terrifically helpful in finding equilibrium and reducing my negative thoughts. Effective medication management, creative mapping of family dynamics has helped bring about a happier at home life for myself, spouse and kids.

Dr. Judy Friedman is excellent. High pressure job + marital tensions equaled, for me, heavy drinking, depression. Therapy with Judy Friedman was directed at helping me manage stress and alcohol, with a practical approach and a sense of humor. Happy to report that my drinking is now totally under control, marriage & family life steadily improved, and I lost 25 lbs. Judy F. also picks up the phone when you need to talk which I can tell you does not happen with most MDs!
