Awesome surgeon and person. He gladly took my workmans comp case and all the craziness that went with it. The tendon in my elbow was so painful when I got to him touching it made me jump. He went right into action without hesitation to fix it. He explained everything and answered any questions I had. I was told every visit not to hesitate calling if I needed anything. I will definitely return if I ever need to. Highly recommend Dr Freedberg:) Pain is gone!

Dr. Freedberg was truly a blessing!! He performed Carpal Tunnel Surgery on both of my hands. Made me feel very comfortable knowing this was my first time ever having surgery. He's always in a good mood, and his bedside manners are impeccable!! His surgical staff are thee best!! I could not have asked for anymore nicer and concerned staff that he has !! Thank You So Much Dr. Freedberg... You are a great Doctor, Surgeon And You Treat Your Patients With Great Respect And Compassion !!

About 5 years ago I needed a repair to my meniscus in my right knee. After 5 years I have no pain and my knee functions as well as it did before the surgery. I recently had to go back for a pain in my left knee. I did not even hesitate about going back to Dr. Freedberg.

in Glen Ellyn, IL |
He was very welcoming and helped me evey step of the way.
in Lombard, IL |
Didn't explain my injury or treatment, even when asked directly. Kept me waiting more than an hour for each appointment. Didn't even show up for one appointment; wrote in the record that he had examined and spoken to me, and then billed me for it. Had to be treated by another surgeon to correct effects of malunited fracture.
in Bartlett, IL |
He's a phenomenal surgeon...redid both of my shoulders and now this 53 year old has the shoulders of an 18 year old! The only caveat relates to his bedside manner. This is not his strength. He may not remember your name or want to chit-chat about your dog, but if a surgeon is this good, do you care? I surely do not! He really is THAT good!
