Patient Survey Reviews

Learn how patient feedback is cultivated
  1. Dr. Freedman, has provided both me and my daughter excellent care. He takes the time to understand what is going on and what results we are looking for.

  2. Dr. Freeman is very good

  3. Office staff was on their best behavior vs previous visit. Tech was new but exceptional. DR. Freedman was his usual thorough self; patient, personal, and professional

  4. Dr. Freedman and his staff are the most knowledgeable and kind medical professionals around. I cant speak highly enough of the doctor and his team.

  5. Great Doctor and Staff at this location!!!

  6. The front desk employees are curt, rude at times.

  7. Great Practice, Professional staff, Excellent Doctor[.] Dr Freedman truly cares for his patients

  8. I learned more in the first 15 minutes w/doctor's questions and information provided than I had w/a previous podiatrist in 1.5 years with unsuccessful treatment of nail fungus.

  9. The doctor is friendly and seems to care about solving medical issue. Sometimes, though, it seems that medicines (homeopathic) are being recommended that are of questionable effectiveness and are pretty expensive. The office has these "medicines" (really, supplements) on hand and sells them. There should be a more frank conversation with patients about data (or lack thereof) around the efficacy of these supplements.

  10. Dr. Freedman was very cordial but always maintained control over what he was doing. He explained every detail to me yet remained succinct and focused. By following his recommendations, I am doing everything I can to improve my condition and look forward to my next appointment with the doctor.

  11. the Doc seemed thoughtful, knowledgable, and allowed time for my questions. I did not feel rushed.

  12. Erin was an exceptional interviewer; she was patient and professional Shavann was kind, caring, and had great concentraton

  13. I am pleased that the doctor gave me his undivided attention during office visits. He answered all questions and addressed my concerns without making me feel rushed.

  14. If Dr. [Freedman] was a primary care Doc, I would want to be his patient. [...]

  15. Great experience

  16. A longtime friend of mine recommended Dr. Freedman to me. Glad she did! The practice is topknotch, and my foot health has been restored.

  17. I have been Dr. Freedman's patient since 1995... that is why I keep coming back with all my feet issues
