Dr Freedman has performed surgery on both my husband and me. He removed 3 large lipomas from my back and did hernia surgery on my husband. The results for both of us were excellent. Dr. Freedman is straight forward and to the point, which I like. Some people may like a more talkative surgeon, but what I care about is excellent results, which my family has received with Dr. Freedman.

Dr Freedman saved my life. I had a nasty infection that intertwined within the mesh abdominal repair I had done years ago. He showed up , took care of business and didn’t mess around. Did exactly what he’s talked to us about prior. No frills no bull all business when in operation mode( what i call it ) I’ve spent a lot of time with many highly recommend doctors from USC, Mayo , Clinic , UC Davis and so on. He has quickly become one of my top 3. But he is the man when it comes to being cool

Dr Freedman came highly recommended by doctor friends of mine. He is an excellent surgeon. He recently removed my diseased Gall Bladder laprascopically and I was back to almost normal in about a week and a half. I would recommend dr Freedman that needs a skilled surgeon with a real concern for their patients.

Dr. Freedman has operated on me twice, once for breast cancer another for removal of a lump on my hip. Personally I would only go to him for surgery. He is excellent!!
