Rude. Only went for a consultation and he said he wouldn’t take me as a patient because my expectations were too high. Said he’d never be able to make me walk like I did 25 years ago. And also told me I ask dumb questions. Also had to wait 90 mnutrs for him after my appt. time.

Dr. Freiberg is incredibly kind, understanding, and helpful. He is active in helping to train new surgeons and cares about his patient. I've never met a more friendly surgeon and I've worked with hundreds. He's VERY well known in the orthopedic community as being fantastic at what he does.

After four reconstruction surgeries I selected Dr. Freiburg for my knee replacement. WHAT A MISTAKE! He was SO FULL OF HIMSELF he told me about all of his successes and didn't listen to what I said. I asked him, no less that 10 times, what was going to keep my new knee from hyperextending & 10 times he told me it was built in to the prosthetic. Wrong. The first month my knee failed. Freiburg forgot I was that person. He took his failure out on me & told me to get a brace. Despicable!

Over the past 22 years Dr. Freiberg has operated on my hips three times. His expertise and caring nature are the reason I have been able to live my life to the fullest. His staff (some have been there for the 22 years!) are caring, kind and excel at their jobs. I commuted from the southwestern US to have care at Mass Gen and, though it was difficult, I would make the same decision both in the past and going forward. Thank you Dr Freiberg!

Zero wait time. Super efficient and friendly. After seeing three other ortho surgeons Freiberg is by far and away the most competent, to the point but friendly. Just gave me a great sense of trust and comfort.
