I thank God every day for Dr Brett Freedman, and his team, and Mayo Clinic's St Mary's hospital. On October 20 and 22, 2015, I had my first (anterior) and second (posterior) surgery on my lumbar spine (L4&5 + S1). Then, on March 17, 2016, I had the first of two cerebral surgeries which resulted in fusion and decompression of my neck (C3-T2). Most surgeons said there was nothing they could do and yet, today, I have NO pain. NONE! I can walk, write & sleep again AND NO NEED FOR SCOLIOSIS surgery!

Dr. Freedman has very poor bedside manner and is very rude. He is highly innappropriate and does not incorporate the Mayo Values!
