The verdict is still out as far as outcome, since I am only 6 wks post-op rotator cuff repair. But at this point the rehab is progressing better than I had expected . Dr. Freedberg seemed extremely knowledgeable and willing to explain the dynamics and process. I am an RN who has worked surgery and feel Dr. Freedberg excels in his approach.

A Brand New Tennis Game

Dr. F. diagnosed a serious issue with my right shoulder. BUT...he sent me to physical therapy and tried other measures BEFORE he recommended surgery. I call that good medicine. I did have to have surgery and feel like I have a new shoulder as a result. I've been to some of the top ortho docs in the USA over the years and Dr. Freedberg is on top of the list.

Excellent shoulder surgeon

Very competent surgeon. The results were better than could reasonably be expected. The PT was amazed with the procedure. I thought his bedside manner was just fine but I wasn't looking for a new best friend. Would and have recommended him to others.
