February 23, 1922 - May 22, 2015 Dr. Stanley Friedman passed away May 22, 2015. He was 93 years old. Born in New York City in 1922, he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and the Chicago Medical School.

Following a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, he practiced in Saratoga Springs, New York for 8 years before taking a fellowship in gynecologic endocrinology at the University of California Medical School in San Francisco, later serving on the fulltime faculty. In 1973 he moved to Los Angeles where he practiced infertility for the next 20 years, enabling thousands of couples to achieve pregnancies.
