Dr. Freedman was my doctor for over 20 years, I was heartbroken to hear of his retirement. He is a wonderful doctor and unfortunately one of the few brilliant physicians left in our area. I felt very safe while under his care and Miss the comfort I knew being under his care. He is a credit to his profession and in my opinion the best of the best....

I've been going to Dr Freedman for around 20 years now. I credit him for saving the life of my child and am sad that he will be retiring next month. Not sure if I could trust another on gun like so trust him. Sometimes there are waits but that comes with seeing a doctor who sometimes has emergencies that pull.him away from his office and into the OR.

I've been going to Dr. Freedman for many, many years. If I have questions, concerns, he always makes time for me. I feel safe and well cared for at his office.

Staff was very rude. Dr. Freedman didn't seem to care or listen to my concerns. Made me feel like I was a customer as opposed to a patient. I waited over an hour to be seen, he spent less than 10 minutes, basically giving me panflets and magazines. There are doctors who care about patients and Dr. Freedman is NOT one of them.

I chose to see Dr. Friedman for GYN issues because of his long standing reputation in the area. Unfortunately he brushed my issue off and referred me to a gastroenterologist. His office staff is exceptionally rude, leaving me numerous messages that I was unable to return because of busy schedule. They left me one final message and did not hang up the phone when they were done and proceeded to talk about me on my voicemail. Very unprofessional!!!!
