What People Say About Dr. Gary Freeberg, MD

I've been seeing Dr Freeberg for years, and have found him to be excellent in his knowledge and in his treatment, which includes medications, and breathing tests, and x-rays, etc. Nothing is done if it isn't necessary, or to my knowledge, or choice. Dr. Freeberg does his job, without unnecessary chitchat, so you're in and out of his office in no time., though without feeling rushed. Very little waiting time before the exam. The staff, too, are all polite, pleasant, and professional. Thank you!

Horrible manner. Very dismissive of patient's questions. Too arrogant to be an effective medical professional. A waste of medical school tuition. Better to be in a lab working on research without human contact.

I came to Dr. Freeberg with a chest CT scan indicating pleural effusion and pericarditis, and on the advice of my primary care physician. Dr. Freeberg acted like I had no right to be there, that I was just whining. He didn't offer any advice or medication -- even though I told him I was in pain for the past several days. He half-heartedly suggested an X-ray Then he said, There are people who are worse off than you. P.S. I am still sick in bed and in pain a week later.
