I was referred to Dr. Freeman for total knee replacement/open reduction internal fixation surgery. Dr. Freeman is a highly competent, yet caring and compassionate Orthopedic surgeon. Dr. Freeman carefully explained the benefits and risks of my procedures beforehand and he reassured me every step of the way. I have seen numerous surgeons over the years, to include during my tenure in the U.S.Army. Dr. Freeman is by far the best and brightest Orthopedic surgeon I have ever encountered.

Dr. freeman, is so proficient in His practice. My shoulder pain was terrible, lost range of motion. I did not know what was wrong. He diagnosed me with a frozen shoulder. he gave me a steroid shot and some home exercises. I would recommend, Dr. Freeman to anyone who is having issues, with their shoulders. I saw DR. Freeman on 04/07/2020, today is 04/08/2020. My pain is gone. Thanks DR. Freeman

I went to Dr Freeman for an issue with my hip after a year of trying to figure out what was wrong with it. Dr Freeman identified the issue and talked through all of the options for it. I appreciated that he started with a conservative approach of PT, and when I went back for follow up, I asked for another round of PT, and it was no problem. After that round, I asked him if it could be fixed with anything other than surgery. Unfortunately it really couldn’t - so I scheduled it. Dr Freeman is great to talk through options with. He and his staff are really nice. I never felt rushed when I saw him. He took time to chat, explain, and answer all of my questions. I would go back to him in a heartbeat! Thank you Dr Freeman for the outstanding care!

Dr. Freeman is Godsend, an angel from heaven. I suffered agonizing /debilitating pain for 5 months from Avascular Necrosis of the hip/femur area. This highly skilled doctor & his inventive new techniques, saved my hip, my femur head & fixed my ill, and only 1 night in hospital. My hip has been totally pain free since my surgery 2 weeks ago. I am ready to run when he gives me the go ahead. Would give him 100 stars if I could. Highly recommend. Extremely grateful, & satisfied patient. MB

Dr. Freeman is by far the most experienced and proficient orthopedic surgeon in the Jacksonville, FL area. Not only was he able to repair the past orthopedic surgery that was done on my femur, but implanted a new total hip. I can now walk without pain and falling down. I am very thankful to Dr. Freeman and my PCP for referring me to Dr. Freeman. When moving to a new area it is so hard to find a great surgeon, but I now have the Best.

To start with, Dr. Freeman you'er my HERO! And why is he my hero? He was the third doctor that I have seen for my shoulder issue. The first 2 doctors had their way with it and after 5, that's correct 5 surgeries,not only making a total mess out of it along with very little use of my arm I went to see Doctor Freeman and his great team. Doctor Freeman fixed in 1 operation what took the other doctors 5 surgeries and never got it right. These 2 doctors work at top name Orthopedic practices.

I was referred to Dr. Freeman for shoulder pain due to an arthritic condition. My previous doctor did a rotator tendon repair and gave me injections for pain relief. The treatment did very little good. I had only about 60% of my range of motion in my shoulder. Dr. Freeman told me that the only fix was a total shoulder replacement to remove the damaged area. The procedure went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend Dr. Freeman and his excellent staff for any shoulder treatment.

Dr. Freeman is amazing! My teenage daughter needed hip surgery and went from being in a wheelchair prior to visiting with Dr. Freeman to being on a running program where she is pain-free 4 months post surgery. I wouldn’t have trusted my child or any family member with anyone but Dr. Freeman! He is THE hip expert in Florida. Thank you Dr. Freeman! ???

I had a total hip replacement in May, 2017. I can't thank Dr. Freeman enough for giving me my life back! I was in considerable pain before the surgery. If you are hesitant, please be assured, Dr. Freeman will help you make the right decision. I was in the hospital for one day, and walking without a walker in less than a week. He totally put me back together! Everyone I met at the office was very friendly, and seemed interested in my recovery. He's the best...I wouldn't use anyone else!

Dr. Freeman is and excellent Orthopedic doctor and i had a great experience with him when i had my shoulder injury. He did a thorough exam and came up with the appropriate treatment to fix my shoulder injury. He took time to answer all of my questions and did not rush through the initial exam or the follow up exam. He explained all of the possibilities of what the injury could be without alarming me. I really think he did everything right.
