      I was in a lot of pain and Dr Freeman was the only doctor to actually help me rather than to simply run tests and hand over a prescription for percocet. I was pain-free for 8 years and didn't even give it a second thought. I had an issue with a second disc and I went to Dr Freeman first. Within 2 weeks, I had an MRI, and a steroid shot and I was on the mend again...PILL FREE.
      in Edison, New Jersey |
      Dr. Freeman neglected to order the most basic diagnostic tests prior to months of treatment. Since he claimed to be a board certified expert in dealing with problems of the spine, I assumed he knew what he was doing. A competent medical professional advised me to get an MRI. The MRI indicated that I was close to becoming paralyzed. Shortly thereafter, I had surgery with a doctor who truly was an expert in problems of the spine. If you're looking for a pain management doctor, keep on looking!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
