Not only is it imperative for patients to be well educated about their disease processes, but it is similarly important for physicians to be educated about their patients.

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.

He looked at other issues past my injury to be comprehensive.Was concerned about depression due to my emotional state. My injury has caused months of sleep deprivation and pain. I appreciated the full care and concern. I am concerned though that I will not get a follow up call as I heal.
