Very satisfied

I went to mercy emergency room last week with shoulder pain. I was referred to Dr. Freeman office for follow up. I was able to get in to his office the next day. His office is clean, staff are nice and he diagnosed me correctly with bursitis and provided an ultrasound guided injection. I’m happy to say that I’m perfect within 2 days. He has great bedside manner , engaging and funny and when I called to ask a question he personally called back within 29 minutes. I’m very impressed and feel great.

Great Dr. fixed both my kids!

My daughter and son both broke their arm on the monkey bars at school. Our pediatrician highly recommended Dr. Freeman. My daughter healed beautifully and within the time frame we were given. My son broke his arm today and I called the office immediately and they got us in right away. The accident happened at 12:30 and we were home by 3pm! I trust him with my children's limbs! Great doctor, great results, very efficient office!

Great medical care

I was referred to Dr. Freeman by my primary doctor last week. Everything about the experience was wonderful, his phone people, front desk and assistant is great. I had sprained my acnkle and Dr. Freeman accurately determined the problem and I am on the road to recovery. His bed side manner is so professional yet relaxed at the same time.
