Biography

Alan H. Friedman, MD, a pediatric cardiologist, diagnoses and treats heart problems in infants, children and adolescents. He meets many of his patients and their families during fetal diagnosis of congenital heart disease and maintains a strong clinical relationship through his patients’ early growth and development, their school-age years and often through college age. The son of a cardiologist and a newborn nurse, Dr. Friedman says he has always been drawn to the way the anatomy of the heart affects its function and physiology, particularly during the critical time of transition of the fetus to the newborn.

“I am inspired by my patients and their families who are so often able to achieve great success through adversity,” he says. “At Yale, we emphasize a true multidisciplinary approach to care that incorporates the patient and family on to this team. We get up every morning with the intent of doing the best work possible for our patients so that they can achieve great happiness and accomplishment in their lives.”

In addition to his role as the chief of pediatric cardiology, Dr. Friedman is the director for medical affairs at Yale New Haven Hospital. He is also a professor of pediatrics (cardiology) at Yale School of Medicine.
