About me

Dr. Friedman is an academic rheumatologist who enjoys providing specialized care for patients with vasculitis, as well as caring for general rheumatology patients. Her research focuses on vasculitis with the goal of identifying new diagnostic tests and targeted therapies. She is the director of the multidisciplinary OHSU Vasculitis Center.

In her spare time Dr. Friedman enjoys gardening, yoga, drawing, paddle-boarding, and exploring Oregon’s great outdoors with her husband and their dog.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
