Patient Comments (2)
in Watkins Glen, NY |
Dr. Freeman conducted a thorough exam and confirmed my diagnosis. He was upbeat, knowledgeable, and caring. I also have appreciated Renee answering any questions when I call. They seem very willing to help!
in Elmira, NY |
I initially saw Dr. Freeman with generalizes muscle and joint pain, with fever and rash. He diagnosed me with a rather rare condone, Still's Disease. I was impressed with his knowledge and reputation of being an excellent clinician. I was also impressed that upon asking for a second opinion, he sent me to the Cleveland clinic to a specialist in auto immune disorders, who confirmed the diagnosis of Still's disease and agreed with Dr Freeman's management.
