The visit was great. I was treated very well by both the staff and MD, and was happy with the treatment by Dr. Freedberg and his assistant. He provided the treatment necessary for my condition and I will return to him for follow up. Unfortunately, your website did not send my paperwork to the doctor's office as you had stated, and I had to fill out the paperwork again when I got there, delaying my appointment time.

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Freedberg. The front office is great, Dr. Freedberg was not only able to quickly diagnose the problems my son was having but also explained the what and why. The course of treatment included physical therapy and I strongly believe that Dr. Freedberg's explanation and bedside manner contributed to my son following the PT order and healing faster.
