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 have been seeing Dr. Freeman for years. I have back pain and he is the only one who helped me the most. I have never had a problem with any one in the office. they are great people who like to help.

First time with dr freeman never saw him some women helped me then the procedure nurse was out to lunch and I had to chase her for an appt meanwhile when your in pain they can't book you until another 2/3 weeks awful.
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.

I have been seeing Dr. Freeman for many years. he has helped me tremendously with my pain I have on a ongoing basis. yes, sometimes you will wait a little bit longer than you are used to but I am pleased every time I have been there. I recommend him and sure you will not be disappointed.

Was seeing Dr. Freeman for several years and wasn't only until recently I went to get a second opinion did I come to realize how poorly managed my care was - avoid at all cost

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.

Long wait time- rude Doctor
in Franklin Park |
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.
in Colonia, NJ |
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.
