He is such a nice man. Took the time to explain my problem with me. Great sense of humor made me laugh which I liked. It put me at ease, and made me not worry about my problem. Answered all my questions. Took enough time to explain and recommend what I should do to help with my pain. I highly recommend.

In addition to being an excellent and smart physician, he is kind and compassionate and listens to his patients. He has been helping me for years and i would not be in as good condition as i am with my ailments but for him. His care has allowed me to keep an active lifestyle.

Dr. Freedman is a class act. He cared about my issue and my active lifestyle. His entire team showed compassion and the office environment at Rothman Institute was first class. I can tell why they have such a strong reputation.
