Dr. Freeman and his staff at JOI are wonderful. My 5 star rating reflects all aspects of their business including competence, professionalism, communication, punctuality and genuine concern for patient wellbeing.

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. I felt confident with Dr. Freeman from the 1st appointment meeting him, through the surgery and through the post-op appointment. Dr. Freeman is not doubt, a 5 Star surgeon. I highly recommend him.

I would like to thank Dr. Freeman for his extraordinary care and concern. From my new patient visit and throughout my care, Dr. Freeman has been compassionate, concerned and attentive. Throughout my care, Dr. Freeman has provided a atmosphere of personal attention, second to none. It is very obvious that his staff members are a direct extension of his professionalism and commitment to patient care. Dr. Freeman is knowledgeable and serves his patients with a patient/person-centered model of care.

Jacksonville, FL |
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.
Jacksonville, FL |
Excellent physician. Very professional and skilled. I would highly recommend Dr. Freeman to others in need of a great orthopedist. In addition, I found JOI to be well organized and patient friendly.

Dr. Carl Freeman and his staff are highly professional and yet outgoing and friendly. Dr Freeman made sure I knew what he was doing every step of the way and that I understood and agreed with his diagnosis and treatment plan.
in St. Johns, Florida |
I appreciate the care I have gotten from Dr. Freeman, his staff, Baptist hospital, and the rehab that I have gotten from JOI
Jacksonville, FL |
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.
in Jacksonville, FL |
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 .
