Dr Freeman is kind, genuine and truly engaged with his patients. His knowledge base has helped me throughout the years with my failed back syndrome. He has gotten me to the age of retirement and being functional once again. Nothing but praise for Dr Eric Freeman!!!!! His nurse, Ana, is a phenomenal treasure. I am so thankful that she and Dr. Freeman have been there for me in my most trying times. DTM

At first came off as a know it all but was nice. Explained issue, discussed procedures. Went in for a procedure in my back, & one of the prep guys just pulled my pants slightly down w/o telling me he was going to do it. After the procedure, doctor himself didn't come & speak w/me. When I finally got a 2 wk post apt the doctor didn't explain anything much just said i needed to find a surgeon. Still waiting for callback of a surgeon. Wasn't very helpful with recommendations either.

I've been a patient of Dr.Freeman over the last few years and this man has done miracles in my life I moved from jersey city to Edison and had to leave my old PM Doctor behind. With the referral of my pharmacist he told me to go see Freeman. I'm so ever glad I did. His staff is also wonderful and nice including Dr. Jay, Dr. Hamer and Bethany are my absolute favorite staff and assistants. Front desk staff are courteous and nice. Office is super clean and organized. I was born with dislocated hips

I have been seeing D.r Freeman now for a little of 2 years or more, I call him the Miracle Man. He doe's wonders in getting rid of the pain in my lower back. He is very trusting, caring and a great host of knowledge in hi field. He will tell you what is best for your conditions associated with your pain. The Office and Nursing staff are very friendly and courteous, wait time is not an issue.

I have a patient of Dr. Freeman over the years. He explains in easy to understand concepts. His medical staff are very good & caring. Office staff are nice. I would recommend Dr. Freeman. He has been honest & truthful to me. When he could no longer help me, he explained why & what would be his recommendation as the next step in my treatment .

I saw a new doctor thst joined the practice on 9/30. Was told they would call me the following Monday to schedule an epidural. 3 weeks later I was still waiting for that call. I called them and they gave an appt for November in a location much further away. I told them I needed Edison location. I've left several messages. I did not receive one return phone call.

Been going to Dr. Freeman since 2008 and always been treated good. He cares about his patients, he always explain everything what is going on. I have chronic pain and he has done all he can to help me. His staff also likes to help. His receptionist, I think it was Glensy is the best, she always try to help. To bad they changed her from the Edison office. No issues yet.

Dr freeman took me in when I had no where else to go. My previous MD had completely mod managed me and only cared about money. Dr Freeman had me set up with an epidural within 1 months and went over EVERY medication with me, everyone on his staff is beyond friendly. I look forward to a long patient-doctor relationship with him and his stadd

Avoid a potential liability. Do not turn to Eric Freeman. I was inappropriately medicated, and, sent away more than once under false pretenses and without transitioning me off of an opiod. My GP kept me from going through withdrawal. Scheduling errors were routine. When lab conditions suddenly became sloppy, Dr. Freeman accused me of taking medication outside the regimen. Seperate screenings proved this false. Cancellation of my contract was seriously delayed.
