This Provider is excellent and the best I've ever seen! He listens, informs, and shows genuine concern for you and your health issues!

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2017
Did not like the feeling of being rushed in last visit, not usually like that.

National Jewish Health PatientApril, 2017
good

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2017
I had a great experience with Dr. Freeman, his knowledge and recommendations, and am glad I selected him as my cardiologist.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2017
*Dr. Freeman is interested in my total health.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2017
The provider needs to better understand me and my desire to have the provider be totally transparent and not omit or withhold unpleasant information about medical conditions and treatments, e.g., not informing me that [patient information] is unacceptable to me.

National Jewish Health PatientMarch, 2017
VERY GOOD!

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2017
I count myself extremely lucky to be able to use National Jewish Health.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2017
Dr. Freeman has a direct method of communicating with me; his tone is always encouraging; his explanations can always be challenged and/or questioned to help me understand what is being said/suggested.
