Horrible. Took 3 weeks for to schedule a visit after a crisis situation (has been a patient with him for 2 yrs) and my son leaving his job and calling 911 . Cannot leave a voicemail nor is there an afterhours receptionist. My wife and I went along with him this last time. My son left his room within 5 minutes out of frustration. I could not hold a cup steady 3 hours after the visit due to adrenaline in my system from frustration. My wife was similarly annoyed at his arrogance and lack of commitment to address issues at hand. Office staff also is disinterested in helping send needed information to supporting agencies. Standard line is 1 to 2 weeks regardless of urgency.

Like other reviewers, I found Dr. Freeman's bedside manner to be aloof, arrogant and borderline reckless. I have had long and healthy relationships with mental health providers to deal with my chronic depression. The last time I saw him, I was in tears as he told me he wouldn't prescribe a med I've been on for years, I agreed to taper off and come back in a month. Much to my surprise, one his office staff phoned me to tell me that I was no longer a patient. Luckily, I found a compassionate Dr. shortly after. But, I can't believe a mental health professional was so cavalier. Dr. Freeman should NOT be seeing patients.

I’ve had a good experience with my visits to Dr Freeman however I find it very difficult to communicate with the office staff. Leaving messages but lots of lag time in response. (ie 2-3 days)

Dr Freeman is great. He listens to my concerns and helps me adjusts anything that I might need to with my medication. He is also friendly and thorough. His nurse also always makes me feel good when I come in and when your staff is great, you know the boss is.

Williamsburg , VA – Dec 01, 2018
Dr. Freeman developed a treatment plan, but refused to answer questions until I signed off. He told me that he did not have the "luxury" of spending a lot of time discussing the plan. When I asked for clarification, he pressured me, until I finally left, in tears, without signing. I was actively suicidal, which he acknowledged. I was afraid to sign anything without having the necessary information. I was appalled by his refusal to answer questions and lack of compassion.
