Best doc for the rotator cuff repairs

My experience with Dr. Freehill and his staff was amazingly positive. He exceeded all my expectations. He fixed my multiple rotator cuff tendon tears beautifully, and I am floored with how small the incisions are, the care he took to not leave visible scars, while restoring all the torn tendons to their former function. I am feeling better every day, and I am so grateful. I would highly recommend this doctor for anyone needing a similar surgery or non-surgical therapy.

Great experience !

I actually went to Dr. Freehill for a second opinion regarding a torn rotator cuff tendon. I liked his demeanor and office staff so much that I ended up having my surgery with him. I think office staff and clinical staff that work for the doctor oftentimes are a good reflection of the doctor himself. He was not in a hurry seemed interested in my understanding of my injury and the repair process. He left plenty of opportunity for me to say no to surgery and just try to get results with physical therapy. Also, when I called for a consult appointment his appointment secretary (who may have been a nurse) asked the right questions and worked with me to get the appointment as soon as possible. 3.5 weeks later I was having the surgery at his Edina Surgery Center. The only slightly negative experience I had through all my dealings with Dr. Freehill came from a front desk employee at the surgery center who seemed a little "short" and matronly and maybe a trifle condescending. Otherwise, all of the clinical staff made me feel as though I was the center of their universe and all that I came into contact with inspired my confidence. I don't ordinarily write reviews or even consider a second opinion. In this case I am lucky to have met and been treated by Dr. Freehill and others should hear of my great experience.

Love Dr. Freehill

Dr. Freehill is experienced and personable. He spends a lot of time with his patients, which is why he runs late. Once you get in to see him, it's totally worth it. I had a full shoulder replacement and couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Four Stars

Dr Freehill seems to know what he is doing and his bedside manner is good. The only thing I did not care for is if you are having questions or medical issues you will not necessarily get a phone call from the PA or even the RN, forget a phone call from the physician.You may be getting your medical questions answered by the office secretary. Medical staff really needs improvement with patient cares.

Bedside manner-10, Staff-3

Dr Freehill has a very good bedside manner and I think he knows what he is doing, time will tell. But, his nursing staff needs to learn how to treat patients and their needs are not always the same, even if the diagnosis/surgery was.
