Review of Dr. Freiberger

-

Dr. Freiberger is not willing to help anyone that can't afford the injections or the topical cream (both of which financially benefit his practice). Even though multiple medications and therapy has been tried over a course of 10 years with no change in pain management. As a patient it concerns me when a physician does not take seriously the very first thing they are taught which is to DO NO HARM. Lack of treatment is the same as doing harm.

Review of Dr. Freiberger

- in Waco, Texas |

I’ve seen Dr. F. for several years. Staff is always friendly and welcoming. I had an injection today, and I commented how at ease everyone made me feel. He expressed genuine appreciation for my comment. If I have concerns or questions, Dr. F. Is always willing to have a conversation with me. I don’t see him every visit. Other times I see his PA, Sherry. If I have a particular need to talk with him, arrangements are always made.

Review of Dr. Freiberger

He was the rudest Dr. I have seen. I am a retired RN, and have seen a lot of Drs, but this one is the worst. He did NO talking. All he did was type his report. When we left, I told them he had absolutely no bedside manners. He was just rude. When my husband said anything, this so called Dr. never answered. I honestly think he was stupid. Will never recommend him. I wouldn't give him a one star if there was a no star rating.

Review of Dr. Freiberger

- in Waco |

Dr. Freiberger and his staff showed much compassion every time I came in for injections in my knees. Dr. Freiberger accepted my complaint that the injections caused my knees much pain. So, for subsequent injections, following the steroid injections, he injected a pain killer, which greatly reduced the pain & kept my knees from getting inflamed. I'm very happy with Dr. Freiberger & his staff & plan to keep coming to his clinic. The most recent injections have lasted for more than eight months.

Review of Dr. Freiberger

Several visits with this doctor for hip pain that radiated down one leg. Three steroid injections to different areas of the back were given with no relief. Case was moved to CHARM in Austin. On our first visit, using a MRI from April 2017, a synovial cyst was noted as the cause of the debilitating pain.. A procedure to "pop" the cyst was tried twice, each giving only 9 days of pain relief. Removal of the cyst was the ultimate cure and that was done in October. Patient is pain free!

Review of Dr. Freiberger

-Waco, TX |

Botched epidural left me bedridden for 2 weeks. Seemed more concerned with "CYA" than treating my situation with compassion. No on call phone, medical assistants would fail to submit Rx electronically when needed. Was honestly a nightmare. Staff was nice but not qualified. Left me on table for ~30 min searching for another vein after med assistant started IV without proper sanitation measures. Mistake caught by doctor. To Freiberger's credit, he did catch epidural mistake before injecting.

Review of Dr. Freiberger

- in Waco, TX |

After 3 yrs of pain & dealing with doctors that where just going though the motions, my primary sent me to Dr Freiberger. He took my pain & ruptured disc seriously & moved quickly. This included getting me on pain med that actually worked & did 3 epidurals in quick succession. Unlike previous doctors, he followed through to see if they worked. After determining they didn't, he hooked me up with a great neurosurgeon who fixed my back. Afterwords, he helped me with recovery pain. Great doctor!

I am Active duty military. In 2012 I had a aviation incident that left me with sciatica and sever lower back pain. The military medicine was PT and Motrin. Fast fwd to approx. 4 months ago and I got the shots in my back. It was the first time that I had not been in pain since Sep 2012. It is amazing a miracle even. His staff is exceptionally nice and helpful. I have never waited more than 10 mins for a scheduled appt. I can tie my boots again without pain. Doc, my hats off to you.

I don't think that he had any compassion for my situation. He was just matter of fact about my health. Not only did he charge me $307.00 for the office visit but then wanted to do a drug test. It was not the urinalysis that I minded, but when I got the bill it cost $500.00. I am disabled and not able to work. I depend on my disability check which is not much. How do they expect you to pay for the bill? They don't take medicaid. I was really dishearten and disappointed. I will not ever go back.
