Dr. De Freitas’ philosophy is simply put "you first". He tries to present information in a simplified format for you to understand and encourages questions so that you are fully informed and intimately involved in deciding the best solutions to your health issues.
In describing his "you first" philosophy, Dr. De Freitas explains that he is only the instrument that will help you achieve the best results. He tries to provide the pros and cons of all treatment options and if surgery is recommended, he tries to prepare you mentally for what you can expect during the healing process. Ultimately however you remain in control of your healthcare and he will respect any decision that you make, because it is all about you.

Fantastic. Dr had so much experience and he did not push additional testing when it was a gray/patient's choice area. It was a very professional office all the way around.
Helpful and informative!
Excellent doctor, extremely knowledgeable, great visit
Very pleasant visit. I was taken back as soon as I walked in and he was in the room within 5 minutes. He advised me what causing my problems and recommended some over the counter options to try rather than surgery. I was very impressed with the thoroughness, yet I was out of the office in less than 20 minutes.
