Dr Freedman is talented, intellectually exceptional and yet compassionate, caring and responsive to patient needs and aspirations within the larger context of patient situation. In brief he is like an old time doctor in terms of his attentiveness, commitment and availability combined with an exceptional academic and scientific depth and experience. I first came to him as a result of a search for my now late mother for a new physician when he was still young - I chose him because he spoke to my mom and not me, noting that whatever the age or infirmities he saw each person as part of a relationship amongst persons. Lee is what I would like to see young people become in terms of values, excellence and empathy that I will guess keeps him Up many nights, when they decide to become physicians,or lawyers, or priests, or Rabbis.

Sorry I missed your deadline. Dr. Freedman knows I love him and how grateful I am for his good care. He is smart, thorough, gentle, sweet and kind. I trust him, am very comfortable with him and consider him my good friend. I am so thankful, that at my age (87), he treats me like a baby and is an excellent listener. He is always on time, never rushed and is there when I need him. The quality of his care is TOPS! Who could ask for anything more?

It's been said that the minute you begin to do what you want to do, it's a different kind of life. I am writing this narrative from Yap Island, Micronesia, on my way to South Africa. Hardly convenient for me, but I feel so strongly about Dr. Lee Freedman that I felt it imperative to respond to your request. I am able to travel to an extent that I never dreamed possible, and I'm so appreciative for Dr. Freedman's help to have the health to live a different kind of life. Dr. Lee Freedman has been my doctor since 1998, a number of years before he became affiliated with MDVIP. He told me at that time that he believed in practicing medicine a different way, not rushed within 15 minute appointments. He believed in a higher standard of patient care, getting to know his patients, and a focus on wellness. When he chose to become a MDVIP physician, I joined as well. When I discuss health care issues with my family and friends, I realize how blessed I am to have found Dr. Freeman. No nightmare stories here, and that is so uncommon today. There are many reasons I continue with Dr. Freedman, and I'd like to highlight some of those. 1. The finest in primary care from office visits to the comprehensive annual physical. I feel that Dr. Freedman's office is a place where I am known, cared for and cared about. 2. Access to the specialists best suited to meet my needs. Several years ago I had an acute onset of a spinal condition and immediately needed back surgery. The general surgeon at the local hospital told me it was unlikely I would survive the surgery, let alone have a good outcome. Dr. Freedman had me moved from the local hospital to another facility by the end of the day so I could be seen by a specific neurosurgeon. Fantastic outcome, totally pain free, fully active, and no residual effects. He also selected my orthopedic surgeon when I needed joint replacement. Believe me, I appreciate that my results are stellar, and I know that all surgeons or medical teams are not equally skillful. I attribute the results to Dr. Freedman knowing what I need and matching my needs to the most qualified specialists. 3. Prompt appointments and other access to the doctor and his staff. Dr. Freedman will personally call me back, even though I am often difficult to reach. Communication is key and the entire office staff is focused on providing quick access. I always feel as though I am listened to and that my concerns and insights matter. Since I often travel for months at a time, I appreciate the accommodations for my needs and my schedule. 4. Expert advice and shared decision making. Dr. Freedman gives me guidance, options, time to research on my own before deciding if I so choose, and a thorough assessment of risks and benefits. I truly feel like a partner in my health and wellness. 5. Use and sharing of data. I'm a big believer in data-based decision making. Dr. Freedman insists I always have current copies of my pertinent data, as well as the history of changes over time. Data points are so critical in striving for and maintaining wellness. Dr. Freedman's skills and abilities as a physician are extraordinary and so highly valued. Equally as valued are his caring, generosity of spirit, kindness, patience, and sincerity in finding and sustaining an excellent resolution in health issues. He embodies the heart and soul of what the practice of medicine should be, and MDVIP is fortunate to be so well represented.

Dr. Lee Freedman: Has been my doctor for more than 20 years. Has worked hard to help keep me healthy and has been successful. He is patient and caring in treating conditions and providing advice. He is available and thoughtful. When it is necessary to see a specialist in another field of medicine, he coordinates it and helps explain how it ties into to my treatment and care. He is an excellent doctor and has an excellent staff. I appreciate all that he has done in caring for my wife and me.

I have had the pleasure of having Dr. Freedman as my doctor for over 20 years. When he was asked to join MDVIP, I wasn't surprised at all. He has always shown compassion and urgency in caring for me. I love the fact that I can always get hold of him in an emergency and I have the highest confidence in his skills and recommendations. I am very fortunate to have him as my doctor.

A year ago I came home from a trip with bronchitis which turned into pneumonia. Fortunately, Dr. Freedman ordered me a 6 week follow up x-ray and CT which was the beginning of the diagnosis of lung cancer. The pneumonia symptoms were gone, so without my doctor following what my surgeon called the correct protocol, my cancer might have spread, instead of being self contained. I was very lucky twice....having a great doctor and surviving cancer.

Dr. Lee Freedman is a wonderful doctor and person. He is so compassionate and is willing to help me with whatever I ask. He has done research for me and is available any time I need him. He never makes me feel like I am bothering him and never rushes me. He gives be his complete attention. I think he is a rare find and am so happy he is my doctor.

My father passed away in 2001 was a very well respected physician with a large and loyal medical practice on the Northshore of Chicago. To this day, both his old medical colleagues and patients tell my family that dad/grand-dad was an exceptional doctor and a wonderful human being. Dr. Lee Freedman reminds me alot of a younger version of my dad - I find Lee to be extremely competent as a physician and like my father, a wonderful human being. As one of dozens in his medical practice, I don't feel that I'm just another Dr. Freedman patient. Actually the way he always treats me, I feel like I'm his most important patient. Whether it's via e-mail, on the phone or in his office, he is extremely responsive, thorough and caring. I value the services MDVIP provides, but I'm extremely pleased to call Lee Freedman my doctor. As such, I've referred friends looking for a new doctor to Lee and MDVIP.
