Dr. Freeman has been my doctor since 1986 he is the best gastrologist we could have in Southeast Missouri to me in the whole United States he treats you as a person not a number he listens and he talks to you he explains to you what's going on and if he's trying to figure out he runs tests and he goes through everything to make sure everything ok . you dont wait long to get in .. the facility is very pleasant. He is #1 in field of GI Doctors .

Dr. Freeman treated my wife and me with the concern and care of a family member. He had no issues with telling us what was best for her care and didn't allow an affiliation with a local hospital to sway his opinion of what he considered to be the best plan of attack for her.

I have been A Patient of Dr, Freeman For so Long I cant remember !! I have Crohn's Disease and Dr. Freeman has Literally taken my Health care personally !!!. He is the most Educated Trusted and Caring person in His Field. He always takes time to explain the situation that you are in and how best to deal with it medically mentally and physically . He also has the best hands in the Business I say this because of his colonoscopies. No other Doctor can complete that procedure like Him !!

Dr. Freeman and all of his staff are all knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate. When I moved here ten years ago, and asked for recommendations, Dr. Freeman was at the top of the list. I'm now a member of his voluminous fan group!

Dr Freeman is an excellent doctor. He is thorough, efficient and comforting as he does the procedures. Both my wife Joan and I have been patients of his. He is the one who initially diagnosed Joan’s colon cancer. It was so small he told us he almost missed it, he told us. Because he found it so early we had 11 wonderful years we might not have had if Dr Freeman had missed it. I have the greatest respect for this terrific doctor.

I became a patient if Dr Freeman's when I was 16 and had it not been for him I wouldn't be here today. He is an amazing Dr who treats his patients with respect and more importantly like family. As for me and my family he is and will always be family....we love Dr Freeman.

I highlyrecommend Dr. Freeman. He helped figure out a difficult and rare diagnosis for me. Absolutely one of the kindest doctors I have ever met, takes time to explain things, and I could tell he genuinely cared. I felt so comfortable talking with him and his staff as well.
