Dr. Goodfriend has a very coldly analytical point of view which I think may askew her ability to treat patients. I've had occasions where her very style was so intractable and invasive that it provoked irritation, and instead of perhaps having an awareness of the social implications of her line of questioning, assumed I was constantly irritable and needed more medication. It seems she considers her job only to interview (not conversate) and then increase dosages.

As a former patient, I can attest to her kindness and care.

Dr. Goodfriend is an amazing Doctor she knows what patients need. I have a child with ASD and behavioral issues. Therapy alone was not working/was not functional at all! dr. Goodfriend knew exactly what my child needed. Due to her high level of expertise she has changed our lives for the better :) I cannot thank her enough!!!
Finally realized that Dr. Goodfriend is not such a good friend. She only gives my daughter and I 3 minutes of time. She asks her how she is, either good or bad. If good, she gives a refill on persecution. If bad she increases the meds. She doesn't want to know why or what's going on. If you bring it up she says to talk to her therapist. Two visits ago she doubled the dosage, last visit my daughter still wasn't well, she wanted to up meds again..my daughter said no! We won't go back

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
