I have had the pleasure of Dr Freitag helping me via the VA system in Boston. I trust her for knowledge and her skill in the OR. She has operated on me a couple times and did my enucleation and dermis graft. I like her and found her to have a comfortable manner , I would highly recommend her.

I was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma on my eyelid, near the lacrimal duct. Was referred to Dr. Freitag. Expected Mass Eye and Ear to be huge and impersonal. Instead, it was the best, most personal care I have ever received. Dr. Freitag and her staff are outstanding. I needed to see a dermatologist but had no appointment. Dr. Freitag called her colleague and they both saw me that same morning. She is clinically excellent, reassuring, and they work as a team. 5 star experience all the way!

I have spasms of my eyelid. Botox injected into the upper and lower lid is the treatment. It stops the spasms. I had injections every 3 months for 2 years while living in NC. I just moved to boston and had an appt this wek with this dr. She did not use a topical anesthetic as was done in NC. She boldly told me "needle sticks do not hurt". I felt every stick (needed several sticks to cover the affected area). Every stick was extremely painful and so unnecessary . Find another dr!

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.
