Patient reviews for Dr. Joseph Freedman
Dr. Freedman and staff were quick thorough and accomodating
Very caring and professional! I highly recommend Dr. Freedman and this practice. Everything was explained perfectly from the front desk to the EKG sonogram to the stress test, to getting the results. This place is a gem. Just go here. You’ll be treated with respect and kindness.
The visit with Dr. Freedman was excellent, however we encountered a problem with follow-up appointments. Ali told us to check our calendar at home and call her back to set up future appointments. When I called back I got someone who made no effort to get Ali on the phone but rather stated she would have somebody call us back. I am still waiting for the callback. I had to tell her my name 3 times and the reason for my call twice and I still don't think she understood why I was calling.
Staff is wonderful and Dr. Freedman is a no nonsense physician with a smile and personality. Great listening skills and answers your questions. I've been a patient for several years and trust him completely.
Very pleasant visit with the NP and Dr. Freedman
First time patient was taken right away very efficient staff and Dr.was great
Great staff that are helpful and professional. Dr. Freedman is a "down to earth" person who connects to my medical needs in a manner that exemplifies excellent "bedside" manner.
Always professional and courteous. They are always accommodating and really care aboit their patients.
Qick, pleasant and very professional, as usually.
Went several time in the past week for test and have no complaints. Doctor and staff were all friendly and explained what they were doing to me. Very satisfied.
This man really shows his interest in his patients. He's very thorough in his explanations and plans to improve your condition and quality of life.
ANSWERED ALL QUESTIONS AND GAVE ME A PLAN OF ATTACK. VERY SATISFIED.
Great Doctor and made the call fast. Already referred for the next steps. I highly recommend Dr. Freedman and his staff.
Everything about him and his assistant were 5 stars. I hope to see them again when needed.
After going to 3 other Cardiologists, I finally found Dr Freedman and I will not see anyone else!
It's about as tightly run medical office I have ever been in. Very quick to get appointments. Several types of testing are done on site. GREAT STAFF!
Very nice facility (bldg./office) Good staff Dr. Freedman was clear in his explanations, recommendations, and 'bedside' manner... Overall, very pleased with my first visit
This is my first visit with Dr. Freeman he seems to be a good doctor very attentive reviewed my medication made recommendations to better my health I am very satisfied and greatly appreciate it his staff is very well organized wait time was short and very informative from his staff Jerry M
Wait time was great unlike other Doctors who shut you in a room for up to an hour with the door closed. Door was open so you did not feel isolated. Plenty of information through video and screen boards. Joseph doesn't wear the scary white coat and is casual in apperance . Very happy with my visit. Wish more doctors would take this approach.
I felt Dr. Freedman was an excellent listener...his plan of action was clear and I felt reassured as to my present situation and that there would be some manageable plan of action after some further testing. Even though I had been shown to have moderate calcification per CT scan testing, he did put my mind at ease as to that situation and clarified what that meant. I never felt rushed during my appointment even as we diverted a bit to a couple of other related health issues. For those reading this ahead of an appointment - and if using any kind of mapping app for guidance to the office, be sure and add the South to Chiquita Blvd. address - otherwise, you end up at the north end of the Cape at the very end of Chiquita and no where near this office.
He listened to me. We discussed tests. He reassured me that the condition I saw him for was ok. I feel better seeing him.
Really appreciated the prompt office appointment. Staff very courteous. Dr Friedman very knowledgeable
Very little wait time. Addressed my concerns readily.
Excellent bedside manner. Dr. Freedman was very concerned, professional, on time and very organized. I highly recommend him.
Wait time was short. Dr. addressed my problems at once. Very knowledgeable.
I was greeted upon arrival and seen in a timely fashion. The staff was very friendly. I was seen by Dr. Freedman and examined. The Dr. reviewed my procedure and made some changes that he felt was best for my health.
The doctor, like many others in his profession, lacks courtesy and displayed no personal interest in me. I found his demeanor during both of my visits as somewhat impersonal. He did not call me by my name (or title) and during my second visit (which lasted less than 5 minutes) I had to remind him that he had received my test results, which he obviously forgot to bring up during our conversation and then proceeded to dismiss of having any importance. The doctor seemed over worked, distracted and unable to focus on my particular needs. I am a former medical consultant and this doctor would never have passed the minimum grade for relating to his patients in a professional manner.
Listens well to his patients.Does not rush through the appointment.Makes certain that all questions have been addressed.
He took the time to answer all my questions and really made me feel like I made a good choice to come to him.
Dr. Freedman is quick, thorough and to the point. There was one thing he didn't like about my test results and what I really appreciated was that before taking action, he ordered additional tests. I would highly recommend him.
Excellent visit. Front desk is friendly and efficient. Nurse and Doc were both very nice. Doc was personable, direct, and to the point (as I prefer). Excellent overall visit.
He tells it like it is, I like that
Dr. Freedman is a straight forward guy and doesn’t waste any time. His staff is very friendly and professional.
Very good all the way around....very efficient employees....the man that did the echocardiogram was very professional.....and friendly. My results were explained at my level and any questions answered. I highly recommend this doctor and offered staff, extremely professional yet helpful and friendly.
Dr. Freedman was very businesslike and got down to business in what could be wrong with my heart. More tests are scheduled next week to see what can be done in solving my heart problem.
I would be dead right now if he did not cut to the chase and get me into golf coast emr.
I had a very pleasant office visit. Very attentive and friendly staff. Dr. Freedman took all his time with me, listened to my concerns and came up with an excellent treatment plan. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Freedman. Thank you again.
This is the 4th Cardiac doctor that I have seen in Florida. Dr Freedman is by far the most thorough, well spoken and intelligent of any doctor I have seen. He played the CD of my heart pumping while I watched and explained my blockages and how my blood vessals were operating. He patiently answered all of my questions. I knew that I was finally seeing the right Cardiac doctor. I recommend Dr. Freedman to anyone who is looking for a better Heart doctor.
Doctor Joe is a younger doctor but has the common sense , bedside manners, professional ethics and knowledge of a seasoned cardiologist normally found in large city facilities. He has an uncanny way of making you feel comfortable and safe during your visits due to his down to earth personality. I would refer Doc in a second.
I like Dr. Freedman. He sits right down and talks to you and listens to what you have to say. I feel safe with him as my doctor because he makes me feel that he is in command of his field of medicine.
takes his time any answer all question
In retrospect being a new patient I wish Dr. Freedman would have reviewed my medical records with me and discussed them otherwise everything was ok. I plan to review them more next visit.
Answered all of my questions.
Awesome staff and very attentive doctor!!
It's been a few years since I've seen a cardiologist and this is my first appointment with Dr Freedman. I am a bit bowled over by all the tests he wants me to take.
Excellent staff and Dr. Freedman took his time and was not rushed. Schedule was a bit behind due to an unexpexted event, but they all acknowledged it and apologized for the wait. Will definately continiue to use this practice.
Office staff very polite and helpful. Dr.Freedman was professional and took the time to make sure all my questions and concerns were answered he explained what his plan for me was,made me feel very comfortable and assured. I would highly recommend his practice.
