Great Pain Management doctor. Listened, explained and offered several options. Great bedside manner for us 'older folk' and a great sense of humor. I'm very picky about my health care providers but have ZERO reservations about Dr. Freeman! He made me feel like my life matters!

Dr. Freeman showed unusual patience while trying to connect to our computer remotely during a recent video office visit. When we finally established connectivity, after about 20 minutes, he was very thorough, yet customer service oriented. I’ve had quite a few very good PCPs in my lifetime, he is elite among them. My wife and I agree— we trust him.

Dr. Freeman is easy to talk to, listens, and his feedback is easy to understand or he takes the time to explain what he is talking about. I wish getting procedures and help for pain would move quicker, but I understand insurance plays a big role in this.

Must have been an extremely busy day: with a 2:40pm appointment, we didn’t see the doctor until 4:00pm. As exhausted as he looked, he was on top of everything to do with my situation. Always very attentive and concerned about my care.
