What People Say About Dr. Frederick Freitag, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was a patient of Dr Freitag from 1989 until he left the Diamond Headache Clinic when Dr Merle Diamond ascended to Director upon her father's retirement. Dr. Freitag is among the very best doctors, of any type, I have encountered in the 52 years since I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Dr. Freitag moves on from one treatment plan to another without leaving you floundering on a medication that's not working. He also does not rely heavily on the medical history from other doctors who have been unsuccessful in helping. I appreciate that he is extremely knowledgeable not only in the area of headache but medicine across the board. He has always been extremely polite, very proper, and efficient. I've never had an appointment with him that was a waste of time or that was discourteous. I did get the impression that he had high expectations of his staff and he referred me to others on staff for physical therapy, psychology, dietary consult, etc. He is 5 out of 5 stars.

From the start of my appointment Dr. Freitag was nasty, arrogant and insensitive to my needs. I had a lengthy health history form I completed and was shocked when Dr. Freitag set down the form in front of me and complained that I didn't complete 2 pages. I told him I had a vision impairment so I could have missed the pages if they were stuck together and offered to complete the form right away, but he said in a sarcastic manner "it's too late now"! As my appointment went on I said to myself that he couldn't possibly have the same demeanor throughout my assessment. He intimidated me so much that I am not even sure if I answered questions correctly. He became inpatient when I had to think about an answer to his question and ordered a medication I didn't want. My PCP actually referred me to a neurologist outside of his medical group after sharing my experience with him. I would characterize him as being verbally abusive to summarize my experience with him!

Dr. Freitag was extremely rude and insensitive to my pain when I said he was hurting me. He was rude to my family members and snapped at them during the appointment and he made us feel very uncomfortable. Afterwards his nurse and medical assistant recommended a different neurologist in Froedert for us to see because they said almost all of his patients feel the same way and he is difficult to even work with.

Worst bedside manner ever. He refused to give me anything like an abortive to stop the pain. Told me to go talk to a phycologist. Gets angry and aggressive quickly, I would not recommend him whatsoever. I think he thinks Migraine is all your head and it must be because of past trauma. I wonder why he does not work at the Diamond headache clinic anymore, Fired? Seriously, stay away if you have serious migraines.

Dr Freitag seems to know what he's doing, however his beside manner makes me dread my appts. ( I cont to go to him due to my insurance- my former dr moved out of state) He can be condescending and is not compassionate at all. For someone who specializes in migraine treatment he doesn't seem to care that you have 15 a month and spend half of your life in bed.

Dr. Freitag was able to help me decrease the frequency of my headaches and migraines, however his patient care is horrible. He didn't seem interested in listening to my concerns, and his attitude made me feel uncomfortable.
