Freedman's first step is a "wallet biopsy," demanding that all patients sign a form giving him effectively unrestricted access to your credit cards. He does NOT trust his patients to pay any balance they may owe, but instead FORCES that payment by gaining access to your credit cards. If he has so very little trust in his patients, why should patients have any trust in him in return? I am forced to believe that MONEY is Dr. Freedman than patient care.

I'm so glad I took my Dupuytrens to Dr. Freedman. The surgery was perfectly done and healed very quickly. I had nothing to worry about.
in Indio |
Long story short there is none better than Dr. freedman, he has preformed 3 of my 8 surgeries on my upper extremitys. 1He fixed from a botched surgery from a different surgeon. He and was the only one who knew what my problems was,when other Dr.s say i never heard of that.
