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.

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.

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.
