More about Ran Friedman, MD

After medical school, Dr. Ran Friedman started his residency training for psychiatry. During this time, he elected a residency that focused on women’s mental health. This area of expertise supports Dr. Friedman’s mission of helping women in their reproductive ages to achieve optimal mental health during their family planning stages, pre and post-partum.

The area of Women’s Mental Health also focuses on women in their pre and postmenopausal life cycles who may face associated mental health disorders or symptoms. Dr. Friedman 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 Dr. Ran Friedman, the ideal patient is anyone who is interested in their well-being. He is focused on patient-centered care and wants to collaborate with his patients to create the best individualized plan of care. He considers it a privilege to be able to offer patients who suffer from treatment-resistant symptoms advanced treatment modalities such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) therapy and Esketamine to help all patients achieve remission of symptoms
