Specialties

Dr. Ben Freeman has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Could not ask for a more kind and caring Dr.

My husband had an accident with a chainsaw and we could not have gotten a more kind and caring Dr. than Dr. Freeman. Our whole experience was a good one as far as the Dr. was concerned.

Very Dissatisfied Patient

I was rushed to Mobile Infirmary due to fall injurying my ankles. Dr. Ben Freeman was the Orthopetic Surgeon. He only X-rayed one of my legs when arriving at the hospital and operated on it to correct the breakage. He told me that nothing was wrong with the other ankle. By a blessing from God, about a week after my operation and one of the nurses at the hospital ordered a X-ray for the ankle that Dr. Freeman said nothing was wrong and she ordered for a Internal Medicine doctor to check for infection in ankle that Dr. Freeman had operated on due to a odor in the room. It was so odd that Dr. Freeman had been coming to my room everyday and had not detected anything. Also I had a low grade fever which should have sparked some sort of interest about infection. It was later determined that I had infection in the leg that was operated on and the other ankle was fractured. I was released from the hospital after staying in the hospital for 2 weeks. Dr Freeman/hospital released me without a post-office visit setup to see Dr. Freeman. He or his staff did not try to contact me to setup an appointment to do a follow-up on my ankles. I had staples and stitches in my ankle for over a month until I was due to see the Internal Medicine Doctor. He suggested that I contact Dr. Freeman to remove the stitches and staples that day in Mobile while we were down. He said that they needed to be taken out. I called Dr. Freeman's office. His nurse did not even try to work me in. I had to schedule an appt for a later date. Again thru God's forces, the Cancer Surgeon that I had to see later that day, removed the staples and stitches for me. I would like everyone to know about my experiences with Dr. Freeman
