About Me

Dr. Friedman-Klabanoff is a pediatric infectious disease specialist. Her clinical interests include:

  • Clinical tropical and travel medicine
  • Post-immigration/international adoption infection risk
  • Post-international travel infections
  • Intestinal parasitosis
  • Parasitic infections (including malaria)
  • Tuberculosis
  • Bone and joint infections
  • Complicated pneumonia
  • Recurrent infections
  • Prolonged fever

Dr. Friedman-Klabanoff likes to involve families in decision making regarding patient care, especially in complicated cases. She has particular expertise in travel and tropical medicine and particular interest in post-international travel, immigration or adoption infection evaluations.

"I love when I can connect with patients about shared travel/in-country experiences, as I have traveled to 20 countries in over five continents," she says.

In her free time, Dr. Friedman-Klabanoff likes to cook (particularly bake), travel, try new restaurants and spend time exploring with her two small children.
