Dr. Freeman says...

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.
