  • From pre-op, to procedure, to post-op care, Dr. Freedman and his staff took great care of me. I always felt that the entire team treated me as a person and not just a patient.–Jamie T.

  • ...You could not be in better hands than Dr. Freedman's... He has a friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient office staff, who will handle necessary paperwork with a smile, answer routine questions, reliably deliver messages, and accommodate your scheduling needs and changes as they arise.–Virginia K.

  • I had not realized how much a 'mere appendage' had an effect on my overall quality of life and my internal state until I had done without much of my wrist function for almost two years. Then, thanks to Dr. Freedman, I suddenly got my life back!–Terry P.

  • Dr. Freedman is not only one of the most competent doctors I have ever had the good fortune to meet but he also cares and is a good listener.–Norma S.
