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'twear 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 beenshown 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.

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 duringmy 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.

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.

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 watchedand 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 duringyour visits due to his down to earth personality. I would refer Doc in a second.
