O Stars!!! Dr. Freitag is horrible. She placed injected restylayne for under the eye area and totally messed up. I had lumps. She also performed eye surgery for ptosis and there was no difference in the out come. Avoid her and find a better physician. The staff is mean and unresponsive as well. Every time I went I had to wait over an hour. She is a complete an utter waste of time and money.

My mother had no use of her left eye due to pressure being exerted from behind her eye and had to keep it covered due to double vision. No one knew what was putting the pressure on her eye, yet there were MRIs and biopsies done, to no avail. My mother flew out from CO to specifically see Dr. Freitag for surgery. Following surgery, which gave no addl information, there were never any follow up calls or messages to check on my mom. Extremely disappointed in Dr. Freitag as a medical professional.
