Dr. Freeman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Freeman "I have been providing eye care to residents of the greater Long Beach and Orange County areas for over 30 years. In addition I have been Chief of Staff, Chairman of the Governing Board, and long time Chairman of the Patient Safety Committee at Los Alamitos Hospital. My primary goal is to give patients the best visual care and I have affiliated with an excellent group of ophthalmologists so that we always have someone available to care for all our patient's eye care needs."

Care Philosophy

diagnoses and treatment plans in a clear and concise manner."
