More about Ran Friedman, MD

After medical school, Dr. Friedman started his residential training for psychiatry. During this time, he elected to take a residency that focused on women’s mental health. He has an interest in helping women in their reproductive ages to achieve the optimal mental health plan for their family planning stages, as well as women in their pre and post-menopausal stage who suffer from a mental health disorder or symptoms. However, he is also skilled and passionate about helping all adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar disorder, trauma-related disorders (like PTSD), or psychosis. 

To him, his ideal patient is anyone who is interested in their well-being. He is focused on patient-driven care and wants to work with his patients to collaborate on a treatment plan that best fits each individual. He is passionate about the privilege to offer secondary treatment plans such as TMS therapy and Esketamine to help each patient find a specific and customized path that is able to work for them.

Education & Experience

After earning his MD at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Dr. Friedman began his postgraduate training in psychiatry while specializing in women’s mental health at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Since completing his postgraduate training, his work as a psychiatrist has been broad, ranging from inpatient consultation-liaison to Emergency Room Psychiatric services. Since 2018, he has also been offering outpatient psychiatric services.

He is looking forward to offering telepsychiatry services at Mindful Health Solutions.
