I strive to enter into a dialogue with all of my patients so that they can learn about their conditions, and I can learn about their particular situations.

Dr. Edward Nielsen-Freund is an outstanding doctor. He cares about his patients and does everything humanly possible to help them. He is patient, asks questions. It is all about the patient. I waited two months to see him as he was on a two month leave because of an accident. I would have waited any amount of time because I truly believe he is one of the best surgeons ever. I am so happy to have seen him.

Dr. Nelson-Freund is very personable and knowledgeable. I first met when bringing a friend in for care. I have chosen him for my knee surgery and my discussion with him included surgerduring the pandemic and opiods making me sick and aftercare for surgery. This will be my third leg surgery and I reluctantly left my former surgeon because he's retiring. I couldn't have found a better doctor than Dr. Nelson-Freund.
