Best spinal surgeon in the area. Corrected my spine from 56° to 14°. Day after surgery all pain gone. Friendly group. Either he or his PA visited me for each of the 10 days I was in the hospital.

I am a cancer survivor (5 years 6/20161) I feel qualified having been to many many physicians in a range of specialties. I was referred by Dr. Stout and was terrified of having a 3 level neck fusion. What an MD - skilled, kind, listens and saved my neck. I was able to return to work in under 5 weeks. He and Melissa Payson and their assistant Anne Boydon are top notch. Approachable, human, caring and highly skilled - it doesn't get better than that. I am so lucky to have them look after me!

I am a patient and also a practicing physician. I'm delighted that my experts recommended me to Dr. Freeborn and his staff. This surgeon initially recommendedicated an epidural steroid injection for my cervical stenosis rather than an operation. When the first injection failed we tried it again and that also failed. I'm very happy with that level of proof that I needed to have surgery. We planned an operation and a second one if the first failed. Every person involved in my care was super!!

Dr. Freeborn performed surgery on my back for spinal stenosis and herniated disc in my lower back. I stayed overnight after surgery and returned home the next day. Words cannot describe how grateful I am to Dr. Freeborn for his astute medical expertise and professional medical abilities! It is with great pride that I strongly recommend him for your medical issues! Dr. Freeborn truly represents the Standard for Excellence in the Medical Industry!

I saw Dr. Freeborn for a ACDF procedure. I had a life threatening complication after the procedure, it was Dr. Freeborn's quick and decisive actions that saved my life.

After suffering with pain for 3 years, and barely able to walk, I went to see a neurosurgeon. I was told I needed extensive surgery that would require 3 months of being in a back brace. I went to see Dr. Freeborn for a second appointment. He agreed with the problem I had, but told me he could help me with much less invasive surgery. After my surgery I was walking with a normal gait and no more leg pain later the same day. I highly recommend Dr. Freeborn. (And his staff is wonderful too!)

I was referred to Dr. Freeborn and I have had 2 visits and I have not met him yet. I met his Physician's Assistant. I found this ok for the first meeting but after I had an MRI and came back for the results to be discussed I STILL did not meet Dr. Freeborn.I had several questions I wanted to have answered by a person who has performed surgeries but instead I got a person who went to school for half the time. The answers I received I could have gotten from Web MD Signed Extremely Disappointed.
in Everett, WA |
Dr. Freeborn was extremely attentive to both my needs (a bulging disc in need of surgery) and my son's (a 4 year old bored in the doctors office). I go in for surgery with him later this month and can't wait to see how great I feel after he helps me. He is insanely nice and very knowledgeable in his practice of spinal care. His staff was extremely friendly as well, treating my son like royalty during our visit while I got X-rayed & examined.You won't be disappointed if you see Dr. Mark Freeborn.
