Care Philosophy

I was born and raised right here in Durham NC. After attending college at Duke I ventured north to Boston where I completed most of my medical training and was fortunate to meet and marry the love of my life my husband Neil (also on faculty as a cardiologist here at Duke). I returned to Durham for my Glaucoma fellowship briefly joined the faculty across the street at UNC-Chapel Hill and then returned home to Duke Eye Center in 1995 where I have been on the faculty ever since. Dual fellowship-trained in both Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus as well as in Glaucoma I have a clinical and research focus on pediatric glaucoma and cataracts as well as retinopathy of prematurity but enjoy providing care for myriad pediatric problems of the eyes including treatment of grown children with ocular alignment issues. My modus operandi is very simple I simply try hard to treat each and every patient the way I would like someone to treat me. It works every time and I am privileged to be a clinician and educator at Duke Eye Center and in Duke University Health System.

Amazing doctor. We come from over 4 hours away to see Dr. Freedman. She has performed surgery on our son, and helped coordinate surgeries with other specialists to limit trips for us. She is a wonderful lady, and knows her stuff!
