About Dr. Fredric Neuman

Fredric Neuman MD

“For a long time, I have practiced psychiatry full-time. For much of that time, I have written novels full-time, leaving barely enough time to be a full-time husband, parent, teacher, etc. Time expands. I usually recommend that patients go in as many directions as possible simultaneously. If they wait for something to happen before doing something else, usually nothing gets done, and nothing happens.”
 – Dr. Neuman
