Before my total hip replacement, I researched a number of sources to find out the best hip surgeon in the Chattanooga area.. Invariably Dr. Freeman's name would come up! A number of my good sources said that he was the doctor that "fixes" other surgeons mistakes! I am glad I went with Dr. Freeman.. He did a great job on my hip, and he was very professional in his information to me. ( I asked many questions ) He was positive about the outcome, but discussed the true pros & cons of major surgery.

Dr freeman has been such a great dr to me and my mom.which is why i chose him as my ortho dr .after taking my mother and he will tell and ezplain everything you need to no.very compassionate and easy to talk to.

Dr Freeman is wonderful. He did an outstanding hip replacement on me. My surgery had complications but he was able to make the necessary decisions and then be able to implement them flawlessly. My surgery was painless due to his famous "Freeman cocktail"of complimentary meds to block the multiple pain pathways that can cause discomfort. The Erlanger surgical suite and staff are wonderful. I was working in 3 weeks and fully released after only 7 weeks to all activities.He helped my golf swing!

I was recently seen by Dr. Freeman and couldn't be more pleased. I have had knee 3 previous surgeries including a partial knee replacement by another surgeon prior to moving to the Tennessee area. I was very impressed with the amount of time he spent with me and after tests we discussed options. He gave me the most in depth book of information I have ever been given regarding preparation prior to surgery, what to expect, the hospital stay, physical therapy, healing process. Highly recommended

I would not recommend this dr. He is very arrogant & rude. He acted like he was the god of orthopedics. His staff is fine, including the physician's assistant.

Hospital staff like they don't care comes in room never unless they are called to me not very good I was to come into the hospital at 7 am got a call on a late Friday afternoon missed call tried to call back 2 to 5 minutes later could not get anyone to help me in hospital, called back on Monday they opened the hospital at 8am no one could help didn't know or cared. Finally got someone on phone. Got out at 7 pm

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Freeman! He did a hip replacement for my mom that has been an answer to prayers. My mom put off hip replacement surgery due to a metal allergy, but unable to determine which metal. Dr. Freeman was able to suggest the appropriate testing (something other doctors had not been able to) and performed the surgery. Mom's quality of life has improved so much! He is an excellent physician!

Dr Freeman gave me a Total Hip Replacement 2 months ago and now I feel terrific. He and his staff, as well as the nurses at Erlanger were nothing short of fantastic. If I ever need another joint replacement it will definitely be with Dr Freeman. I am totally pain free after years of agony.
Chattanooga, TN |
Professional but personable. He is easy to talk to and ask questions, and answered honestly which i appreciated. I was not rushed and he was genuinely interested in me as a person and my own particular situations that would affect my care and treatment. Above all, he did not push me toward immediate surgery which I will eventually need.
in Chattanooga, TN |
Dr. Freeman was degrading and insulting, and showed a great deal of ignorance regarding my medical conditions. I have several other doctors with whom I've been for several years, who know me very well, and know that I'm a very good patient. Dr. Freeman ignored all of their recommendations/prognoses.
