I highly recommend Dr. Freeman for your Orthopedic needs. He is extremely thorough and attentive to his patients. Dr. Freeman is willing to take on challenging cases and is determined to solve the issues at hand. You can easily tell that he truly cares about your well being and offers the best treatment possible. His staff is also very attentive.

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! ???

Wonderful doctor and staff. Had a knee replacement and it could not have been easier both with appointments and actual surgery when dealing with both the doctor and his staff. They were helpful when asking questions.

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 and his staff were always incredibly professional. As a busy professional myself, the one thing that I most appreciated was the fact that every time I had an appointment, I was seen on time.

Dr. Freeman is an outstanding Orthopedic Surgeon. I am so happy with the results of my hip replacement. Dr. Freeman is knowledgeable and explains everything perfectly and he is very caring person.

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.

Excellent surgeon - he did a great job with the surgery and, equally important, he was there for me during the post-surgery healing process. This doctor gave me his personal cell phone number - almost unheard of among physicians - for emergency problems. I would never abuse this kindness but I did have to use it once (happily, it turned out to be ok) but he did answer the phone at 11:00 pm and answered my question and gave me treatment suggestions.

All my Bible class friends as well as Facebook friends know how wonderful my surgery went with Dr. Freeman. He is compassionate,sincere,listens and is devoted to your care and most importantly to your recovery. His office always looks clean and neat. Staff is very friendly and willing to assist you with all demands. Seeing that most patients are in pain they understand that concept and are motivated to care and alive any problems for your recovery. I need had to wait more than 5 minutes .
