I would highly recommend Dr. Freehill to anybody. He took the time to explain the procedure to me, and the recovery time. We mapped out a plan, he was confident it can happen.

2/24/2015

I absolutely love Dr. Freehill. I wish other doctors were like him. He genuinely cares about his patients and listens to their concerns.

2/19/2015

This doctor is the only doctor that has seemed to find the problem for what I was being seen for, and I have seen several doctors in Charlotte, NC.

2/10/2015

Dr Freehill in combination with Physical Therapy staff (McKenzie and Johnson) were fantastic. Results, perfect.

1/28/2015

I have already recommended to people I know....

1/28/2015

Doctor must have been double booked because he was very late seeing me for my scheduled appointment time, but he took time with me once he could.

1/4/2015

Dr Freehill was excellent to work with, he gave my son the best possible care he could have received. My husband and I were very impressed with his concern for our son and the time he took to explain things to not only us but our son about what his options were and the procedure he needed.

The Doctor is very good in understanding the problem and finding solution for it and directing the patient to the right person that can help. But he does not talk enough to the patient and does not explain enough which makes the patient (especially the one who is visiting him for the first time) not comfortable and not satisfied and wondering if he even got the problem. Also he gives the impression that he is in a hurry and does not have the time to listen to the patient. But once you get to know him (like do what he said), and feel better because of his advices, you get a lot of confidence in him. Yet this is not good enough specially that the very first visit is not promising.
