Dr. Freedberg replaced my right knee five years ago and did an excellent replacement. Was able to return to sports within three months. Rehabbed with Andy Moriarty at Foothills. Both are golden in technique and professionalism. Last year fell down stairs which were unsafe. Tore my rotator cuff badly. Dr. Freedberg repaired the tear perfectly and again I rehabbed with Andy Moriarty at Foothills. Good as new, or better. No limitations. I am in my 70's and Freedberg's staff was stellar!

I had a torn meniscus for the second time in the same knee. I tried to let it heal, but 12 weeks later it had gotten worse. I saw Dr. Freedburg and really appreciated his no nonsense analysis of my situation and what to expect with and without surgery. I finally had the surgery and I'm not kidding when I say that my recovery was virtually painless. I was waking the next day without assistance and only kept taking ibuprofen because they told me to. I can't recommend him highly enough!

I had ACL / mensicus repair 2 years ago with Dr. Freedberg. I am pain free, and back to my normal activities which includes participating in martial arts. Dr. Freedberg recommended a good approach to the surgery, and it has been very successful. His staff are great to. My PT office was familiar with them, and worked with them in the post-op / recovery regime. This was the first surgery I have ever had. It was a positive experience.
in Fountain Hills, AZ |
I did not have good experience with the office. They charged me 200$ for 15 minute visit. Doc started immediately with recommending knee replacement which I do not need. Now they are sending ugly letters to pay the balance of 85$ which I already paid to them. Very poor customer service.
in Arizona |
Dr Freedberg gave me full information and made me feel comfortable about my surgery. It went well and I am healing much faster than I expected.
