Care Philosophy

My practice has a boutique philosophy, with specialized and personal care to each patient. While I am a surgeon, most of my patients do not require surgery, and can be helped or cured without surgery. When surgery is indicated, a lengthy discussion of approaches and expectations is held, making this process as stress-free as possible.

Patient Reviews (1)
Santa Monica, CA |
I had a handful of Dr's that couldn't figure out what was wrong with my thumb. My MRI wasn't even picking up the extent of the injury. Dr Freedman LISTENED, he was patient, he believed me, he thought outside the box and figured out what was wrong with my thumb. My surgery went so well. Great bedside manner and very personable. I'm a Massage Therapist and my hand is my livelihood. He did a great job! He saved my career.
