Dr. Howard Freedberg or should I say the “Knee Expert” this man is the absolute best at what he does. Dr. Freedberg has an undeniable confidence in what he does that rubs off on you from the moment you meet him. You can tell that he cares about your well-being pre-surgery and post-surgery. I am 24 years old and have had knee surgery on both of my knees (torn cartilage, subluxing kneecap) from years of playing sports. I am missing a hefty amount of cartilage in both my knees but do not notice any pain/discomfort on a daily basis. Dr. Freedberg has done an exceptional job to say the least. If you want all encompassing care starting with pre-surgery planning to surgery all the way to rehabilitation/total recovery then get yourself to Dr. Freedberg’s office.

Dr. Freedberg I just want to say “thank you and you are “The Man”

Dr. Freedberg has saved my football, wrestling, and MMA career on two occasions, in addition to preforming both of my mother’s knee replacements (which she loves). In 2007 he repaired my torn labrum and biceps tendon in my left shoulder. The next year I was an all-conference offensive lineman and earned a scholarship to play in college.

This past football season I was playing through bone spurs and floating bone fragments in my left elbow. The Dr. near my school had no idea what he was talking about so I decided to take the trip up north and Dr. Freedberg came through for me again. I am only 5 weeks post op and this morning was my first lift after being cleared and I am benching 225+lbs and it feels great overall.

If you are an athlete looking for an Orthopedic surgeon YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Susan P. (via Yelp!)

After having a horrible experience with a torn meniscus arthroscopy in 2006 by a Florida Orthopedics Surgeon; I was not overjoyed when I learned a slip on the ice from the Chicago winter in 2011 had caused me yet another torn meniscus.

However, my fears were quickly turned around by Dr. Howard Freedberg and his staff; their professionalism and sincere concern for my return to health was the best I have seen. Yes, Dr. Freedberg has on occasion run behind when I have been to his office; yet upon arrival the office staff on Schick would always alert me of any delays in case it would interfere with my schedule – now that’s service! Upon seeing Dr. Freedberg, he would not rush me through just because he was behind. He takes the time giving a thorough exam and answers all of my questions. When needed; he would personally walk me to another member of his staff that would be assisting me further. Now that is Great Service!

My first surgery with Dr. Freedberg was in April 2010 for my left knee. What a difference in my rehab and subsequent outcome from the right knee surgery I had in 2006. I was back to work in a week with minimal swelling (took 6 weeks to rehab in 2006).

My husband was terminally ill at the time and getting to rehab was very difficult. His staff worked with me providing me with the needed knowledge to rehab from home. I do remember the one time I went in, they measured my left knee then my right… seemed confused and re-measured. I laughed and stated… “Your measurement is correct; Dr. Freedberg did such a wonderful job that I literally had no swelling in my left knee at only 2 weeks post op! My right knee has never gone back to its original size after the same surgery in 2006.”

Yet another fall late in 2012 and another torn meniscus in my left knee, my deductible met for 2012 with little time left to get my surgery in before the New Year; Dr. Freedberg and his staff rushed it through for me. My surgery was completed on 12/31/2012.

Dr. Freedberg has always stopped in to see how I am doing prior to surgery, marking the leg for surgery himself to ensure the correct leg is taken care of. He meets with my family afterwards providing them with the outcome of the surgery; then he follows up with me personally by phone the next day to see how I am doing. Here I am only a week post op after yet another fall causing a torn meniscus in my left knee, and again minimal swelling and I can already bend it to 45 degree angle.

I highly recommend this office and personally recommend Dr. Freedberg for his compassion, and superior surgical skills with any orthopedic care you need, it will be the best decision you can make towards taking charge of your own health.

I have been a patient of Dr. Howard Freedberg for both osteoarthridic knees since 2011. I have always felt like he sincerely cares about my wwll-being, treatment plan, and comfort in mobility throughout many(19) injections both knees combined. He told me he will stick with me and help me remain an active fitness instructor. He’s the best! Connie M. (via Facebook) Dr Freedberg and Dr Chhadia are the Very Best,,everyone in the Bartlett office are great to work with Christine (via Facebook). I worked as surgical tech for 12 years and had the chance to work with Howard Freedberg 20 years ago. I was amazed at the recovery of his patients. He would bring in patients and re-scope the joint after recovery and the joint would look like new. I remembered that when I was needing some orthopaedic help with my knee. I just had my knee scope done I am pleased to be on the mend. I would recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone with orthopaedic issues.LoriI have been a patient at Suburban Orthopaedics for many years, and have been a patient of Dr. Freedberg for almost as long. During that time, I had the physicians at Suburban Orthopaedics do surgical work on my elbow, and the procedure was an unqualified success. Not only was the surgery itself successful, the pre- and post-operative care was outstanding. I am a medical professional myself, and thus do not hand out recommendations often, but if you need orthopaedic care, you would be hard-pressed to find better care than that offered by Dr. Freedberg and his staff.

Glenn H. (via Yelp!)

I have known Dr. Freedberg since a hip replacement in 2009. The latest serious surgery I had in September 2012 repairing my biceps tendon was a total surprise and of an emergency nature. Dr. Freedberg and his staff worked to schedule surgery quickly. His treatment of my injury and the assistance of his office and staff for this injury was just excellent.

The surgery went great. My recovery was long, but the rehab went well! The Bartlett office staff for Therapy, Ryan, Romeo, Ben, the rest of the PT’s and staff was just great and helpful.

IRMA L. DILLARD

I WAS A PATINT OF DR. FREEDBERG FOR A FEW WEEKS. I NEEDED TO CONTINUE TREATMENT BUT COULDNT BECAUSE OF TRANSPORTATION ISSUES. IF I COULD I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE CONTINUED TREATMENT WITH HIM BECAUSE I STILL HAVE ISSUES WITH MY LEFT FOOT AND ANKLE ESPECIALLY SINCE IT HAS GOTTEN COLD.

~ Nathan (and his bicep tendon) (via Yelp!)

I have known Dr. Freedberg for a long time, but never had a serious surgery like the one I had June 2012 repairing my biceps tendon. I have always been very comfortable with his office and staff, but this experience was nothing less of excellent.

The surgery went great. My recovery was long, but the rehab staff is top-notch! Can’t beat the Elgin location for PT… Jason and Michelle are the best, and with Elaine at the front desk, they made it a wonderful process. As I moved to Bartlett office for Work Conditioning program, Ryan, Romeo, Ben, the rest of the PT’s and staff were just as great and helpful.

I’m a perfectionist, and was not ok with “never being the same” regarding my shoulder and bicep procedure. Suburban Ortho got me back to a physical state that I was beginning to think would never be achieved.

I love them. You will love them. These are facts.

Larry Hunt

I have had Dr. Freedberg perform a total of three different surgeries, one on my left rotator cup (shoulder), another on my right knee, and the third on my left knee. I was in the masonry trade for thirty years and anyone in the trades knows it takes a toll on your body no matter what trade it is. All of the follow up procedure was excellent, his physical therapy program had me up, out and about in no time and I haven’t had a bit of problem doing whatever I want in any of the three areas. Actually I still play 16″ soft ball and I’m 65. So as far as I’m concerned Dr. Freedberg and his staff are the greatest

Al F. (via Yelp!)

I am a Police Officer and while working I chased down a guy and while trying to subdue him, I did a lot of damage to my knee. I went to Suburban Orthopedics because Dr. Freedberg had treated my wife for her knee injury. I really thought that my knee was so bad that I would not be able to return to work.

At my request, Dr. Freedberg started me out with physical therapy instead of trying surgery right away. I am very happy that he listened to my wishes and worked with me to try to accomplish my rehabilitation without surgery. However, after a couple of months of physical therapy, we decided that the knee would not get better without surgery. He did a tremendous job with my knee. I would recommend Dr. Freedberg and his wonderful staff to anyone that wants a doctor who listens to you and does fantastic work!

Olson

I’m a new patient of Dr. Freedberg suffering from a torn bicep tendon in elbow. Previous Dr. was unable to get my range of motion back due to cutting the tendon too short while reattaching it. Dr. Freedberg (who is an AMAZING Dr.) provided me with an “EXTENSIONATER II” to stretch the tendon back to the correct position. This device works by straightening my arm and applying pressure to my elbow gradually. If it wasn’t for Dr. Freedberg and this miracle device, my life would be in shambles. Thank you again Dr. Freedberg for your expertise and dedication to helping me get my arm back.

Jody L. (via Yelp!)

I had knee replacement Jan 2012 by Dr. Freedberg and I am so happy with the results, I have my mobility back and am very pleased with the results. His staff is the best and I had great care before and after the surgery.

Ralph McMahon

Dr. Freedberg has repaired my shoulder and replaced my knee, couldn’t be happier. The office staff was helpful and caring. He made a bad situation better with good care and concern. I would recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone.

Anthony C. (via Yelp!)

The staff and physicians at Suburban Orthopedics are probably the most professional and caring health care professionals that I have ever encountered. From the moment you step into the office you are treated with respect, the front desk staff politely follows all HIPAA privacy practices, the clinical staff is top notch at gathering your medical history and rapidly types it into their electronic medical record, the x-ray tech is on site very efficient in taking and downloading your x-rays, but the best part of the visit is being seen by Dr. Howard Freedberg! this man is one of the most intelligent physicians I have ever come across, he is determine to provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan that will have you pain free in a matter of days. I have seen Dr. Freedberg twice for 2 different medical complaints, and I have received the best treatment. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who needs a treatment for ortho problems. My wife works at a hospital in Chicago, and if asked, she always recommends patients to Suburban Orthopedics first!

Lori Hudziak

I was having leg pain for a while so my husband referred me to Dr. Freedberg. It was the best thing I could have done! Dr. Freedberg showed me the problem was in my hip and gave me my options on how to deal with it. He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable in my decision. I chose replacement. The surgery was quick and his physical therapy staff got me right back on track. It’s been only eight months since my surgery and I am at 100%! I would refer Dr. Freedberg to anyone!

Alecia L. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg is skilled, trustworthy and I wouldn’t want anyone else cutting into my body! I had shoulder surgery, quite extensive, one muscle was not torn! I was healing strong! Then I fell again! Ripped a rotator cuff full thick tear. He was so concerned and not in a hurry to operate again let my shoulder settle down a bit let the inflammation subside for about 6 weeks so he could truly see the damage. He did another cuff operation and now I’m just not healing, I still trust him. He boldly searched for a reason and when it was out of his skill set he admitted it. Not his fault not my fault my body is just not healing.

Jack grooms

I have been using Suburban Orthopaedics, I was referred to them and I would refer everyone to them. Using Dr. Freedberg and Novoseletsky was a complete joy. The doctors are going to talk to you about your life, not just your problems that you are there for. I was very impressed that they were there for you and not your company or insurance. It is all for you. Impressive building, employees, and you will also be impressed with them. Take my word, you will like them all.

Jerry Bowgren (via Yelp!)

I am currently seeing Dr. Freedberg for a Workers Comp neck injury, and from day one, not just Dr. Freedberg, but the WHOLE staff has been top shelf.
I knew of this office when I lived in St Charles. I now live in Rockton which is 1/2 hour NW of Rockford. I gladly pay for the gas to see the best of the best.
You should be very proud of what you built up, I sure am.

Robert Kujawa

I’ve had both my rotator cuffs and most recently a broken arm repaired by Dr. Freedberg over the years… He has done excellent work… everything is 100%

Walter

Thank you! My experience was more than one could imagine. From day one everyone was so professional and had caring in their hearts. Dr.Freedberg was a pleasant man from diagnosis to recovery. Enough can’t be said about his knowledge of each individual he works with in their treatments. He was persistent that I do more than my share to make the surgery a success.It worked. My pain was removed after several weeks of therapy and perseverance. I would expect him to do the same for all who come to him for a surgical miracle. He works hard but finds a way to keep all commitments as scheduled. Thanx Dr. Freedberg.

George De Ford

I was in a car accident where the impact sent my right foot through the floor and almost completely severed it. Dr. Freedberg performed the surgery, and is the one who saved my foot from amputation. Due to his care, follow up care and physical therapy with assistant Anthony Bartkowiak I am able to walk and do almost everything as well as anyone. The professionalism of the staff at Suburban Orthopedics in answering questions, getting information, and scheduling of follow up procedures is outstanding.

Thank you Dr. Freedberg.

Jack V.

Dr.Freedberg repaired my knee and its better than new. Can go up and down stairs like a normal person, not one at a time.
Thank you Dr. Freedberg you are the BEST.

Danny DiMaggio

I had shoulder surgery back in April with Dr. Freedberg. He did an excellent job with what he had to work with. After surgery explained what he did, and post-op treatment was great. I would say to anyone who needs orthopedic surgeon to go see Dr. Freedberg, and let him explain how he can help.

Thanks again Dr. Freedberg

J.K.

I am beyond grateful and lucky that the traumatic night I slipped on black ice and ended up breaking my ankle completely, Dr Kyle Peterson was on call at the hospital I was rushed to. Dr Peterson made me feel at ease since the very beginning. He explained exactly what and how the surgery to fix my ankle would go and he made sure I was comfortable before rolling me into the Operating Room.

He has done a phenomenal job with reconstructing my ankle! Every check up after the surgery, Dr Peterson made me feel important, and he truly cared about my progress. I never felt as though I was just another patient, each check up felt more like I was seeing a good friend who happened to have done surgery on me. He didn’t just care about my ankle, but he genuinely wanted to make sure that all aspects of my life were not suffering. I am beyond grateful for Dr Peterson. I have recommended him to all of my friends and family, who have all also been very impressed with Dr Peterson. He is an amazing doctor, and a truly amazing person. Best doctor ever.

Robert Leggett

I was referred to Dr. Freedberg. I am so glad I went to him for my complex torn meniscus. The Dr.’s very confident attitude made me know I was at the right place. The Dr. is on your side, he is there for you. He isn’t worried about your employer, your lawyer. You are his focus. Tell him anything and it stays with him no one else. It helps you relax during you recovery. He also advised me to have work reconditioning which was GREAT, because I had to be 100% to return to work. Take the worry out of your rehab; go see Dr. Freedberg and his fantastic staff.

Thanks again Dr. Freedberg

J.K.

Feeling confident going into a surgery was certainly a plus! Dr. Peterson thoroughly explained all my options and I knew I was in good hands. I have never been so impressed with a doctor in all my 63 years. His caring disposition, promptness, and true desire to do the very best for me confirmed how passionate he is as a doctor and surgeon. Walking pain free is the best feeling ever! I am extremely thankful for the exemplary services I received by Dr. Peterson.

Linda McDonald

I was referred to Dr. Freedberg after an accident that resulted in a fracture of my leg. He and his staff were wonderful. They were kind and compassionate and never were anything but professional. I was always seen at my appointment time and had my questions answered honestly and openly. This is the best Dr. office I have been involved with as far as treatment of both my injury and me as a person. Thank you to all.

Toni Lacy-Royal

I am very grateful to have followed the referral to Dr. Freedberg in the winter of 2009. Thanks to his dedication and his vast knowledge of his field, Dr. Freedberg discovered that the problem was really much more serious spinal cord compression problem which I never expected. As most would do, I sought other doctors for a second and third opinion, I then discovered that Dr. McNally was had more experience with triple level cervical fusions than any other orthopaedic surgeon in this area and was held in the high esteem and recommendations of fellow surgeons. I must admit I was truly impressed when more than one doctor will admit that ‘your’ doctor IS among the best of the best. Thank You Dr’s Freedberg and McNally for saving my life. The road to recovery has been rough however I’m grateful for my doctors, they are the BEST!!!

Sam Ferguson

About 9 months ago I met with Dr. Freedberg to have him look at my shoulder, and after three years of struggling with problems all Dr. Freedberg did was look at my shoulder and he had the diagnosis immediately. Three months later Dr. Freedberg performed an arthroscopic procedure on my right shoulder for multi directional instability. Dr. Freedberg was wonderful with explaining the procedure, and my recovery into physical therapy went smoothly with no problems. He is one of the finest orthopaedic surgeons I know of and he is very supportive during the recovery process. I would recommend him to anyone as the person to go to for any orthopaedic problem!

I recently had over gone surgery on my Rotator cuff. I received the treatment from Howard Freedberg, M.D. and he did an excellent job. I can’t put in words how pleased I am with how the surgery went. At first I was skeptical but Dr. Freedberg reassured me everything was going to be alright and comforted me. I was very satisfied with the outcome.

Howard Freedberg

I have been a patient of doctor Freedberg’s for over 13 years. He has assisted my son, daughter and has replaced both of my hips as well as scoped one knee. He is an excellent surgeon and I have always found him and his staff to be outstanding. I would and have recommended Suburban and Dr. Freedberg to my friends and family.

Paul & Marilynn Serra

When my husband first hurt his back at work I had no idea the long, long road ahead of us. After 14 months of office visits, physical therapy, injections, dealing with workman’s comp issues, etc. we finally ended up at Dr. McNally’s office . . . what a lucky break for us! The staff at Suburban Orthopaedics was not only efficient and knowledgeable but also caring. We were well prepared for what lay ahead. The surgery went well and he is recovering quite nicely . . . Thank You Dr. McNally!

Tom S.

Dr. Freedberg did carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands over 10 years ago and I couldn’t be happier, they are fantastic! I also had rotator cuff surgery and my left shoulder and between Doc and Tony they are both unbelievable! Two weeks after they did the surgery it felt better than it did the day before the surgery, I was so impressed with my results that now I am actually looking forward to getting my right shoulder done as well! The physical therapists at Elgin did a phenomenal job! 5 stars all around for Dr. Freedberg and all of Suburban Orthopaedics”

Trinidad

I would like to thank Suburban Orthopaedics for a great treatment, the best dr. `s in town and friends… thank you again for all your help when I need it the help…

John Brandes

The problem is where to start. I have had a couple of bad injuries. The first one was my lower back. My primary Doc. sent me to Suburban Ortho. I saw Dr. McNally. We tried therapy, injections with no luck. We decided on surgery. The time he took to explain things was awesome. It is not common these days to have a Dr. spend so much time with their Patients. The surgery was performed; the aftercare was second to none. Five months after I returned to work I fell off a ladder breaking my heel. (Ouch) I did not pass go and went straight to Suburban Ortho. I met with Dr. Freedberg. The only option was surgery. Surgery went well. The aftercare was again great. But as my luck would have it I had a second surgery that I am still recovering from. The compassion and knowledge of Dr. Freedberg is superior. The Staff is so caring. I need to mention Physical therapy, x-ray and MRI. Everyone is great. A true one stop shop. I can’t ask for anything better. I tell everyone how great Suburban Ortho is and always recommend them.

Judy Carlstrom

The whole staff at the office is there for your every need, you call in and they are right back to you with little wait. Dr. Freedberg and Dr. Tony made the left shoulder cuff surgery go very smoothly not that there wasn’t pain but they made me comfortable and healing quick. I would refer everyone to contact Dr. Freedberg’s team and you can bet I’m satisfied….

Angie Cashmer

Dr. McNally and his team are the best around!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again for everything that you have done for Dave!!!!!!!!!!!

Kathy

Dr. Freedberg was wonderful in finding and successfully treating the reason for my 5 years of pain and has me walking without a limp and dancing at my daughter’s wedding this weekend! 3 other doctors were unable to do that! Thank you Dr. Freedberg!!!

Marsha B.J

Dr. McNally is one of my Top 10 favorite people! I am year post a two-level fusion. He has given me hope for a future beyond back pain! Thanks to the Suburban Orthopedic Team!

Christina L. (via Yelp!)

These Doctors are outstanding! They listen and really pay attention to you and your situation. They are positive, kind and caring. Their goal is to make you feel better. I really think highly of them because they take their time with you and don’t rush through like a lot of doctors. They are really wonderful! They are just great at what they do and they CARE. The staff is warm and friendly too which is very important as well.

Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Dr. McNally for your unconditional care!

Phyllis Dewey

Dr. Freedberg and his staff are absolutely wonderful, very caring and friendly. He was recommended to us several years ago by a friend when my husband required surgery; his recovery was quick with minimal pain due to the magical hands of Dr. Freedberg. Several years later I also required the need of an orthopaedic surgeon, with no doubt in mind I choose Dr. Freedberg as my surgeon… after all he’s the BEST!!

Linda B. ( via Yelp!)

I definitely do not have either enough words or the right words to tell you how much I love Suburban Orthopedics. I have known Dr. Freedberg forever and he has become a very dear friend. Dr. McNally and all of the therapists have been supportive and loving through everything I have gone through. You cannot go wrong becoming involved with this group of people. The staff is warm and caring and can’t help enough. If you do have concerns the office staff is ready and willing to listen and act on your behalf. I do not think that I have ever encountered a more well-rounded community who is totally dedicated to your well-being and care, both physically and emotionally. Sometimes you have to wait awhile to see the docs, but when you do it is totally worth it. They make you feel as though you are the most important person and I have never felt as though they were too busy or did not care. I LOVE Suburban Orthopedic – I think you can tell I am a little biased.

Judy Reed

I went to Dr. Freedberg in September to get right knee checked. After exam it was determined I needed full knee replacement. Everyone at Suburban Orthopaedics is fantastic! Dr. Freedberg explained fully what the procedure would entail and what to expect with the outcome. He didn’t miss a beat. At my 6 week checkup it was hoped my knee would be bending at least 90 degrees. Even with hard work in therapy I came up short. I was then scheduled for manipulation under anesthesia with Dr. Freedberg. The manipulation was just what I needed to make my recovery. I just had my 3 month checkup and I am now bending my leg over 120 degrees. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and would recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone needing knee surgery. Thanks to everyone at Suburban Orthopaedics for the wonderful care! See you at my 6 month checkup!!

Agnes Matthews

3 years and I am still doing super. What a great job you have done. No pain in my back and the feeling in my left leg is back. And yes, I am still dancing. What a great thing you have done for me and I’m sure other people also. Thanks again!”

John Michalisko

I was very nervous about having to replace my knee. I now have replaced both my knees & couldn’t be happier. After PT, I could move around better & without pain. I’m looking forward to playing softball & golf this summer. Thank you Dr. Freedberg & your team.

Mary Stachovik

I had torn rotator cuffs on both of my shoulders (not at the same time, thank goodness!) Dr. Chhadia was my surgeon for both of them, and I can honestly say that my shoulders are good as new – it’s hard to believe there was ever anything wrong them! Dr. Chhadia is a wonderful surgeon, explaining everything very carefully, and is great with follow-up. It is obvious that he cares for his patients and is very considerate of their concerns. I would (and do!) recommend him to everyone.

Janis P. (via Facebook)

My name is Mary and I just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Chhadia for the excellent job he did on my left knee. I had very little pain with the surgery and the recovery. When I started therapy my physical therapist he was very impressed with the job that Dr. Chhadia did, he commented that my recovery time was minimal in comparison to some of his other patients that were also recovering from knee replacements. My flexibly has returned and I am pain free. Thank you so much Dr. Chhadia!

Christine (via Facebook)

Dr Freedberg and Dr Chhadia are the Very Best,,everyone in the Bartlett office are great to work with

Kristin Starbuck

Dr. Freedberg was the first Doctor able to properly diagnose and treat my condition. He is knowledgeable and really explains everything to you so that you are able to understand. He and his staff are professional, courteous, compassionate and prompt. I would highly recommend Suburban Orthopaedics. Thank you so much Dr. Freedberg
Sincerely,

JAYENDRA THAKKAR

I was referred to Dr. Chhadia by my primary doctor Dabawala for my left knee pain. I was very nervous about having to replace my knee. But Dr. Chhadia listened to me and encouraged me to get knee replacement surgery done. And he did it. After two month physical therapy I feel normal. Dr. Chhadia did successful knee replacement.

Thank you Dr. Chhadia

Vicki G.

Dr. Freedberg ROCKS! He has treated my knee for the past year now, as a surgeon a four or five star rating does him no justice! He’s tough on me…but for good reasons, I believe he truly cares for his patients! Plus his staff is terrific! So caring!

Jose Pena Ruiz

I’m a patient of Dr. Chhadia. He helped me when I had both of my arms fracture and also did the surgery for it. He explained the movement of my hands and how it will be restore slowly, but surely and sure enough that is how it’s going. I’m so grateful of him and his staff who has helped me with the process. He is a very good doctor and great bedside manners. He was very honest from the first day he treated me and did my surgery. I highly recommended him to all my family and friends who need help.

Kristin Reid

I have been one of Dr. Freedberg’s patients for many years now. Unfortunately for me being a former athlete, I have had to see an Orthopedic Doctor over the years from shoulder issues to my knees. Dr. Freedberg and his staff (Tony, Rita, Fran, and Dale etc.) are all very warm, kind, caring and sincere. Howard is the one Doctor I trust to give me personal Care, A good Assessment of my injury and a positive recovery plan to get me back out to lead a normal life. I have recommended many of my friends and my co-workers to see him. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you Howard for all you have done!
Sincerely,

Jack Erlinger

Dr. Chhadia and Staff, I am most grateful for the outstanding surgical repair of my badly broken collar bone. After being told the repair couldn’t be performed by another Surgeon, my primary care Physician sent me to your office for a 2nd opinion. My collar bone is in perfect alignment and fully healed. I have resumed all normal activities including my motorcycle racing; I hope to be on the podium later this month.

Hello my name is Curtis Rice. I had a total knee replacement. The care I received from Dr. Freedberg was superb, he has all of the knowledge to make you feel comfortable, his staff provides you with a very friendly environment, Dr. Tony, Fran, Rita, the Therapist, and so on.
Thank You so much,

Cathy B.

I want to thank Dr. Chhadia and his PA for the excellent care I received for two broken wrists and Carpal Tunnel surgery that was needed after the fractures. I am very happy with the information given to help me return to normal use of my hands. The office staff was also very nice and efficient.

Curtis Rice

Dr. Freedberg and the whole staff at suburban Orthopaedics are the best. They do it right the first time.

Trinidad

I would like to thank Suburban Orthopaedics for a great treatment, the best dr. `s in town and friends… thank you again for all your help when I need it the help…

Rich B

Hello, I had been a patient of Dr. Howard Freedberg for the last two years. I have severe osteoarthritis of both knees. Due to my other medical conditions, surgery is not a good option. Dr. Freedberg has been injecting Supratz into my knees via a technique which the injection is guided by ultrasound. This has provided me with a tremendous amount of relief and has been very successful for me. I would recommend Dr. Howard Freedberg to other patients.

Kristin Anderson

I have been a patient of Dr. Chhadia’s for over a year with a shoulder injury. He has gone above and beyond what any other doctor I have ever seen before in the past. Dr. Chhadia is a very caring and understanding doctor who listens to his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Chhadia’s services and will absolutely use him if I need him in the future. Thank you to everyone at Suburban Orthopedics. U guys are AWESOME!!

Clarita Cruz

I’ve been seeing Dr. Freedberg since September of 2010 due to some back injuries. Since the first day I knew I came to the right place. Dr. Freedberg has been very understanding & patient with me. He knows the pain you go through and knows it is quite difficult to deal with. He’s diagnosed my pain & has treated my back to the fullest that it can. The staff in their office is always courteous & pleasant as well, which helps ease the sum of the stress & pain that you’re dealing with. Dr. Freedberg is such an amazing & helpful human being that I have complete trust in him. I give this office & physician two thumbs up & would suggest to anyone who is in need of an ortho. To go there!

Lori-Jayne K. (via Yelp!)

My son dislocated his shoulder in a high school football game. Because of the commitment of Dr. Freedberg and Dr. Chhadia to attend these games, my son was treated on the field by Dr. Freedberg and surgery was done by Dr. Chhadia. I am a RN, and while at Ashton Surgical Center, I was so impressed with Dr. Chhadia and the center, I ended up as an employee there. I see the everyday results of Dr. Freedberg and Dr. Chhadia’s handiwork, and I have to tell you, they are incredible surgeons!!! The care, compassion and skill these physicians have are far beyond what I have witnessed in my nursing career. We were so lucky to have these fine physicians take care of my son. Jason’s shoulder is now stronger than before he injured it. The expertise of Dr. Chhadia and the PT team is beyond incredible! We are blessed to have Suburban Ortho in Bartlett, and in our lives!!! Thank you so much for all you have done.

Armando Terrazas

I am currently seeing Dr. Freedberg as well as the PT clinic for a shoulder injury and chronic knee pain. My experience has been nothing but first rate! Dr. F is definitive in both diagnosis and treatment, and has been spot-on in both cases. I would recommend anyone with ortho issues to see him! The PT clinic managed by Ryan has improved my torn rotator cuff mobility back to the point of usefulness with much improved range of motion, thus avoiding surgery. The entire staff of therapists is outstanding, and, regardless of who is assigned to me that day, no one misses a beat- Additionally, the office personnel is efficient, friendly and very competent in addressing my questions and issues. An A+ medical facility!

Keith K. (via Yelp!)

Suburban Orthopaedics is by far the best medical facility I’ve ever been to. Their imaging, physical therapy and medical centers are as professional as they get. Dr. Ankur Chhadia is an excellent physician and I highly recommend him for any type of shoulder treatment. He has performed two rotator cuff surgeries on me in the past 12 months and the treatment I received was exceptional.

Mitch Lopac

Dr. Freedberg and his AMAZING staff has made me feel so comfortable, I had a previous Doctor and just always felt rushed and never felt like I was a priority at their office. Having researched Dr. Freedberg and finally taking the big step to switching doctors during an injury was the best thing I have done. They are very professional and put the patient FIRST! He has always answered all questions and made me really understand what’s going on with my condition. I would recommend this doctor and staff to anyone! If you’re looking for a down to earth guy with a personality and a great background, he’s your guy!!

Julie A.

“I had a visit with Dr. Chhadia for my shoulders (torn rotator cuffs). He was wonderful to talk to. Dr. Chhadia gave me a shot in both shoulders, which my previous doctor for some reason would not do. I have, for the first time in months, slept with no pain and have no pain at all now!

Thank you Dr. Chhadia!”

Dr. Chhadia gave excellent care to my father when he broke his femur. He answered me and my mothers questions and put us at ease before my father had to go into surgery, the care he received afterwards was excellent. It was comforting to have dr. Chhadia tend to my father, he has a great reputation and even one of the nurses before my father went to surgery spoke highly of him because dr had performed surgery on one of her family members. Thank you dr. Chhadia for all that you do. My family is very thankful that my father was in the best hands.

Ken Malinowski

Dr. Freedberg and his staff have gone beyond my expectations and I appreciate their friendliness and high quality of care they have given me through 2 surgeries and physical therapy. I recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone looking for a surgeon that is not only an expert in orthopedic surgery, but one that is also kind and caring, takes the time to answer your questions, and explains things in a way you can understand without having to have a medical degree. Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Suburban Orthopaedics for making this experience better than I ever expected!

J.K.

I am beyond grateful and lucky that the traumatic night I slipped on black ice and ended up breaking my ankle completely, Dr Kyle Peterson was on call at the hospital I was rushed to. Dr Peterson made me feel at ease since the very beginning. He explained exactly what and how the surgery to fix my ankle would go and he made sure I was comfortable before rolling me into the Operating Room.

He has done a phenomenal job with reconstructing my ankle! Every check up after the surgery, Dr Peterson made me feel important, and he truly cared about my progress. I never felt as though I was just another patient, each check up felt more like I was seeing a good friend who happened to have done surgery on me. He didn’t just care about my ankle, but he genuinely wanted to make sure that all aspects of my life were not suffering. I am beyond grateful for Dr Peterson. I have recommended him to all of my friends and family, who have all also been very impressed with Dr Peterson. He is an amazing doctor, and a truly amazing person. Best doctor ever.

Joe Amato

Dr. Freedberg rocks! He is knowledgeable, personable and an awesome surgeon. He’s repaired my shoulder, biceps and elbow over the past ten years and I have recommended him to several others because of his professionalism and ability to improve the quality of life. Dr. Freedberg gets it done!!!

J.K.

Feeling confident going into a surgery was certainly a plus! Dr. Peterson thoroughly explained all my options and I knew I was in good hands. I have never been so impressed with a doctor in all my 63 years. His caring disposition, promptness, and true desire to do the very best for me confirmed how passionate he is as a doctor and surgeon. Walking pain free is the best feeling ever! I am extremely thankful for the exemplary services I received by Dr. Peterson.

Paul G. Gay

5 stars! I am currently in my fourth set of procedures. I am very happy with the care, treatment, and concern for my health. They are very personable, and considerate. I would not keep going back if this were not the case.

Sharon O.

I had such bad back and leg pain that I could no longer drive or sit at my desk. I ended up having to work from home in a recliner chair and on pain medications. I six weeks I made four trips to the emergency room because the pain was out of control. In late October I went to see Dr. Novoseletsky for pain management. He explained that there were four discs in my back that were creating nerve related issues. He patiently explained the complexities of treating back pain and that we could only do one treatment at a time. He promised me that we would get to the source of the problem and get it resolved; he kept his promise to me. It took about seven injections, a cauterization, then one more injection (there were a number of nerves involved) and I am back to driving, working at my office, and even wearing heels again! My pain went from a 10 out of 10 to a 2 out of 10 at the most. I think a lot of people expect a one shot miracle cure but that is unrealistic. Dr. Novoseletsky is the most compassionate doctor I have ever known – he is absolutely amazing. I encourage anyone reading this to not give up on pain management – Dr. Novoseletsky can help you!

Kurt Wait

I developed a relationship with Dr. Freedberg when he had taken care of my son when he broke his thumb from playing football. When I met with him over my shoulder issues, I was very confident in his recommendations and surgical procedures. I was scheduled for my procedure last spring when a serious health issue came up with me, when I discussed this with Dr. Freedberg, he was very concerned with my health and recommended putting of my surgery on my shoulder until my other issue was taken care of. It was a rough time for me and Dr. Freedberg took the time to talk to me, how cool is that. I had my shoulder surgery this past December and I’m doing great and expecting a full recovery. Dr. Freedberg is a great doctor and I recommend him to everyone.

Vince DePinto

I was in a car accident in May of 2013. I suffered lots of neck and back pain in effect of the accident. I was referred to start physical therapy. After a few months of physical therapy, the pain did not go away. I was then referred to Dr. Novoseletsky at Suburban Orthopaedics. He examined my areas of pain and suggested injections. The injections have helped immensely to the point of no returning pain. I want to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Novoseletsky and his team.

James VandeVusse

To Dr. Freiberg and all the people associated with Suburban Orthopaedics, I would like to sincerely thank you for the wonderful and successful surgeries on both of my shoulders. The kind and thoughtful care that I received before, during and after my surgeries is a testament to the highest quality and expertise of you and your staff of trained professionals. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs any orthopaedic procedures, to contact you. Again, THANK YOU! P.S. Tell the people in therapy that I am recommending a steam room.

Jack grooms

I have been using Suburban Orthopaedics, I was referred to them and I would refer everyone to them. Using Dr. Freedberg and Novoseletsky where a complete joy. The doctors are going to talk to you about your life, not just your problems that you are there for. I was very impressed that they were there for you and not your company or insurance. It is all for you. Impressive building, employees, and you will also be impressed with them. Take my word, you will like them all.

John Tornabene

Best ortho surgeon in the biz is Dr. Freedberg. Has done 4 surgeries on me and he is the best. So are his nurses Fran and Dale. The physical therapy is the best totally and great physical therapists. Would not go anywhere else in the world!! They treat you like family and Dr. Freedberg has even operated on sports stars like Jeremy Roenick! Believe me if you want the best and have tried the rest go to Freedberg and the staff at Suburban Also Dr. Tony and Rita are great too

Trinidad

I would like to thank Suburban Orthopaedics for a great treatment, the best dr. `s in town and friends… thank you again for all your help when I need it the help…

Al Mandel

I was a bit nervous when I began looking for an orthopedic surgeon to help me with my shoulder issues. I was suffering from the lingering effects of a 2010 car accident and I didn’t want to simply “get rid of pain”. I wanted to get back to where I was…able to do what I wanted athletically and in daily living. The #1 thing that jumped out at me from the information I gathered on the Web was Dr. Freedberg’s extensive background in athletic injuries. I’ve had a very good experience with the entire Suburban Orthopaedics team, including the PT guys. I could have done PT anywhere with Dr. Freedberg’s blessing. But when I checked out the state-of-the-art PT facility in Bartlett and watched people doing very interesting exercises, I felt that driving the extra 20 miles to Bartlett would improve my chances of a full recovery. I had previously tried another PT group and the results were so-so (old equipment, not-so-interesting exercises). It was great having a fully licensed therapist stand by my side during all of my exercises. At this time I feel great and expect to be back to 100% very soon.

Jinene B. (via Yelp!)

I suffered through chronic pain for 7 years with a condition called, Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). Besides the fact that there is inflammation throughout my entire body, my right hip and lower back were the most debilitating. There were mornings I could not get out of bed and nights when it took me a long time to fall asleep trying to mentally fight through the pain.

Throughout the years, I have seen many professional doctors and specialist without getting the proper help or treatments I needed to feel better. I become depressed and after a while, lost all hope in feeling better again, until the day I walked into Suburban Orthopaedics and met with Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky. Dr. Novoseletsky is well educated on my condition and immediately focused on my SI Joints, which can create severe painful discomfort issues due to the AS.

I went through a series of Sacroiliac Joint injections and treatments. My pain subsided about 85% and I feel fantastic. The first injection gave me immediate relief that I cried happy tears all the way home. I was so overwhelmed, that after all these years I finally found a doctor who can offer a solution to my pain and give me my life back. I am now able to do all the things I never thought I was going to be able to do again. I am currently 37 years old and no longer feel like I’m 90 years old.

I feel very blessed and grateful to God for guiding me to this treatment; and to such a good and professional doctor as Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky. He is one of the few doctors I’ve seen who takes time to listen, answer questions, and care about my well-being. I can say the same thing about the entire staff that stands behind hm. I am now enjoying my life with my two little kids; and being as active as I once was.

Barry

I have been a patient of Suburban Orthopedics for over 2 years. The staff from the receptionist to the dr. is all so friendly and caring. The office hours for dr. visits, MRI’s, and physical therapy are always scheduled for convenient hours they try to accommodate everyone’s schedule. I also like that they have multiple locations so wherever you live there is an office conveniently located. My daughter who is 8 years old recently broke her elbow and I took her to the Bartlett office and she was well taken care of. Thank you for all your great services keeps up the good work.

William Nowak

I had been getting shots in my back for a few months, when my original back Dr. got sick. And told me to find another back Dr. without any of my information to give and no records of my MRI, I had to find a new doctor, until I was referred to Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky. I have just a little pain in my back now and I can now
walk without dragging my right leg. I recommend him to everyone, and not to worry for. He is very good and gentle when he gave me my shots.

Thank you

Jacque O’Neill

I recently had my left knee replaced by Dr. Freedberg and I’m getting ready to do the right knee. Great doctor and I had no problems with the surgery. The office gals are the best out there. Fran took my staples out and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Freedberg is a no nonsense guy but he gets the job done right. Best thing I ever did for my knees. I would recommend this doctor to anyone who needs help with any ortho need.

Pat Nowak (via Yelp!)

My name is Pat, and I just want to say how happy I am with Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky. For years I have been suffering with back pains, and was not able to walk at all. I did go to one back Dr. and didn’t do much at all with helping me to take a walk. I found out that not only do I have 4 crushed vertebrates in the middle of my back, but also in my tailbone, and my neck. When I tried to walk, the pain would be in my hips going down my leg. I would have to stop every few steps to ease the pain. With Dr. Novoseletsky help, I can now walk again, and I’m looking at birds, deer, and now my Husband can’t even keep up with me. My son is getting married next week, and he told me I will be able to dance with him. Thank you Dr. Novoseletsky

Sincerely,

Beth G. (via Yelp!)

About 11 years ago my mom had a successful full knee replacement by Dr. Howard Freedberg. Then my dad needed a complete hip replacement and had it done by Dr. Howard Freedberg and has not had any trouble with it at all. Then 8 years ago I needed a total hip replacement and because my mom’s replacement and my dad’s replacement were so successful I went to Dr. Howard Freedberg and I have had absolutely no complications or problems with my new hip. Dr. Freedberg is an excellent doctor. He is wonderful to talk to and will listen to your every concern. Yesterday, April 14th, I had my eight year checkup x-rays and everything is great. Thank you Dr. Freedberg you are the best.

Sandy

I just wanted to let you know that my elbow is great! The shot in my elbow worked and I am ‘Pain free”. I am still doing the exercises but I just wanted to say Thank You! I was going to another doctor for 3 months and he didn’t help me at all; 1 visit from you and I feel great!…

Lynn K. (via Yelp!)

This practice is the best. Everyone is friendly and it makes the visits more enjoyable. Dr. Freedberg is the best. I appreciate the time he takes with me to explain what my issue is and what needs to be done to correct it.

I hurt myself playing baseball and ended up completely tearing my ACL and also my meniscus… I was very scared and unsure about my path to recovery. I got referred to Suburban Orthopedic by a teammate who also was helped by Dr. Freedberg… Dr. Freedberg is the best orthopedic surgeon out there, and he and his staff as well as the in house MRI and Physical Therapy more than delivered and made my own personal nightmare easier to handle. I would recommend him and Suburban Orthopedic to anyone.

Dr. Freedberg is a fantastic physician. His entire staff, administrative, physical therapy, nurses, you name it are wonderful, patient, helpful, pleasant people. You cannot get better help than Dr. Freedberg. Love them all!

E.T.

I am so happy that I decided to go to Dr. Peterson. At first I was afraid because I usually only go to doctors that I know. Right from the start Dr. Peterson showed awesome “bedside” manor. He talked to me as a person and not just another patient. After surgery Dr. Peterson and his staff have been there for every question and concern. Dr. Peterson has given me instructions every step of the way with no surprises.

Thank you Dr. Peterson from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done. You made a painful situation feel painless.

Karen M. (via Yelp!)

I have worked with Dr. Freedberg and Dr. Bartkowiak and they have always addressed my needs quickly and accurately. On 12/03/2013 I came in with extreme pain in my shoulder and down my arm. Once again, Dr. Bartkowiak response to my pain was spot on. Within 24 hours of my treatment I am no longer in pain and have full range of motion in my arm again. I could barely lift it at my appointment!
I highly recommend Suburban Orthopedics!!

Camille M. (via Yelp!)

I saw Dr. Freedberg after I had surgery with another doctor for a full tear rotator cuff injury and seven months of physical therapy. I did not regain my full ROM and had pain, especially while sleeping on the affected shoulder. I decided to see Dr. Freedberg to see if there was something he could do. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He knew immediately that I had developed a frozen shoulder and would benefit from a minor procedure to manipulate the shoulder and break up the scar tissue that had formed since the previous surgery. Best decision I ever made. The procedure was fairly easy and recovery was great. With physical therapy, I was achieving ROM that I hadn’t even gotten close to before. I am now relatively pain free and have almost full ROM. Dr. Freedberg was great. He was very straightforward and took time to listen to any of my concerns and answer any questions. You’ll be happy you choose Dr. Freedberg

Bennie Blackwood

I had torn rotator cuffs on both of my shoulders (not at the same time, thank goodness!) Dr. Chhadia was my surgeon for both of them, and I can honestly say that my shoulders are good as new – it’s hard to believe there was ever anything wrong them! Dr. Chhadia is a wonderful surgeon, explaining everything very carefully, and is great with follow-up. It is obvious that he cares for his patients and is very considerate of their concerns. I would (and do!) recommend him to everyone.

Joy D. (via Yelp!)

I first came to Dr. Freedberg few years ago for a second opinion about my left TKR. He examined me, took an X-ray and said “it looks like your surgeon did a great job”. This really put my mind at ease.
Later I came back with terrible pain in my elbow which he fixed surgically. It was a tremendous success. Not only was I pain free but I got back to lifting weights (always carefully)…I’ve been doing 3 sets of 8 curls at 40 lbs. 3 times a week along with my regular regimen of pushups etc… ever since. No problems.
2 years ago I returned with bad hip pain…despite some misgivings I elected to have total hip replacement as per his recommendation. I finished the rehab a month ago. I am pain free and enjoying SLEEPING through the night.
Obviously Dr. Freedberg is a talented technical surgeon but that is not my reason for writing this review. It is his one on one no nonsense approach to medicine that has impressed me.
He listens, he is good humored and explains all options and procedures until the patient understands and is able to make their OWN decision. When making my decision to have the hip replaced it was also nice to know he had a personal perspective…he went through the same procedure himself.
I especially have appreciated his “no nonsense” approach to medicine.
“You want physical therapy or ant-inflammatory? Or both?”… “Let’s try a shot of cortisone” … “We have a great physical therapy department here… oh that’s not convenient? Where do YOU want to go?”… ”Dennis that shoulder may have an impingement but let’s try some PT first. If it’s still giving you trouble we’ll do an MRI” “I like the way your hip looks on the x-ray ; you don’t have to come back for nine months BUT if you ever have any type of orthopedic problem before that give me a call.”
All doctor offices get busy and all doctors are rushed at times. It’s no different at Suburban Orthopedic. They are helping a lot of PEOPLE. But I’ve been to this facility enough to know that the quality, respect and care that I am looking for is always there.
I highly recommend Suburban Orthopedics.

Mary Stachovik

My name is Mary and I just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Chhadia for the excellent job he did on my left knee. I had very little pain with the surgery and the recovery. When I started therapy my physical therapist he was very impressed with the job that Dr. Chhadia did, he commented that my recovery time was minimal in comparison to some of his other patients that were also recovering from knee replacements. My flexibly has returned and I am pain free. Thank you so much Dr. Chhadia!

Dennis M. (via Yelp!)

I have used Dr. Freedberg and his services for over 20 years. His knowledge and professionalism is outstanding. I have had numerous injuries over the years and Dr. Freedberg’s treatment was successful in every case. I would recommend this business and Dr. Freedberg anytime of the day or night.

Janis P. (via Facebook)

Dr Freedberg and Dr Chhadia are the Very Best,,everyone in the Bartlett office are great to work with

Tom T. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg is TERRIFIC!!! After several months of physical therapy and cortisone shots doing nothing for my elbow pain, Dr. F. came in, ordered an MRI, and recommended surgery. I have not had a bit of pain since. There was also an error made by the hospital and myself regarding eating before surgery. When I got to the hospital, they refused to do my surgery because of having eaten a small breakfast. They had not told me I couldn’t eat. Naturally I was upset. Dr. F. offered to return to the hospital AFTER seeing patients in his office and do my surgery at the end of his already busy day. Not may doctors would go above and beyond like that. I would HIGHLY recommend him.

Christine (via Facebook)

I was referred to Dr. Chhadia by my primary doctor Dabawala for my left knee pain. I was very nervous about having to replace my knee. But Dr. Chhadia listened to me and encouraged me to get knee replacement surgery done. And he did it. After two month physical therapy I feel normal. Dr. Chhadia did successful knee replacement.
Thank you Dr. Chhadia!

D. Nolan (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg has helped our family for 20 years through surgeries, breaks, and other sports related injuries. I would trust no one else with our care. He is a miracle worker!

JAYENDRA THAKKAR

I’m a patient of Dr. Chhadia. He helped me when I had both of my arms fracture and also did the surgery for it. He explained the movement of my hands and how it will be restore slowly, but surely and sure enough that is how it’s going. I’m so grateful of him and his staff who has helped me with the process. He is a very good doctor and great bedside manners. He was very honest from the first day he treated me and did my surgery. I highly recommended him to all my family and friends who need help.

Kimberly K. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg treats each patient special and is a competent surgeon. His staff is friendly and caring. My wife and I have both had knee surgeries and our quality of life has dramatically improved. Thanks to Suburban Orthopedics!

Jose Pena Ruiz

Dr. Chhadia and Staff, I am most grateful for the outstanding surgical repair of my badly broken collar bone. After being told the repair couldn’t be performed by another Surgeon, my primary care Physician sent me to your office for a 2nd opinion. My collar bone is in perfect alignment and fully healed. I have resumed all normal activities including my motorcycle racing; I hope to be on the podium later this month.

George B. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg was able to arthroscopically repair a complex tibial plateau fracture when two other orthopods recommended an open reconstruction. Since the surgery, I’ve been able to return to skiing and running. As a physician myself, I can appreciate the skill and experience that Dr. Freedberg brings to the table. His PA, Tony, is also excellent.

Jack Erlinger

I want to thank Dr. Chhadia and his PA for the excellent care I received for two broken wrists and Carpal Tunnel surgery that was needed after the fractures. I am very happy with the information given to help me return to normal use of my hands. The office staff was also very nice and efficient.

Jake K. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg is exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable. His staff – especially his nurse Frances – brings compassion and deep knowledge of their roles to bear on their efforts.
I first began seeing Dr. Freedberg last summer when my rotator cuff began to shred. Dr. Freedberg took a cautious approach, trying everything he could before finally surgery was the only option. When the time for surgery arrived, he went in and did a thorough, detailed and skilled job, not only repairing multiple tears, but photographing the arthroscopy throughout so I could see what work was done and the damage beforehand.
Afterward, their staff at his physical therapy clinics is simply superb. From their thoughtful, well-designed layout, to their hands-on therapy, I knew I was on the road to recovery. Today I can say with certainty that, though pain accompanies all surgical procedures, I have no doubt whatever that I received exceptional care.
Sometimes you will wait beyond your scheduled appointment time. It’s because Dr. Freedberg takes time with his patients and when circumstances warrant, he will spend the extra time necessary in the course of treatment. Indeed, I was happy he wasn’t rushed during my surgery, which went far longer
than planned due to the damage he discovered once inside.
Dr. Freedberg gives you the information straight. He’s direct, but not rude or insensitive. I can only think of two, very minor criticisms. One, I am a person who researches deeply any topic regarding my medical care, including perusing medical texts and scholarly articles. As a result I wish I had been given more from the doc himself in this area. For most, however, his explanations are more than effective.
Second, is the phone system could use some tweaks. Physical therapy hours run before and after doctor’s office hours. But to reach physical therapy, you are first routed though the main office line, which opens and closes at the standard 9-5(ish) time. Consequently, if you are late for PT or need to reschedule and you call outside Suburban Orthopedics’ normal hours, you cannot get through to the PT staff, who are there earlier and later, Mon-Fri.
These items are not enough to reduce at top rating. I’m deeply grateful and satisfied with my care and recovery through Dr. Freedberg and his excellent practice.

I would like to thank Suburban Orthopaedics for a great treatment, the best dr. `s in town and friends… thank you again for all your help when I need it the help…

I injured my left shoulder in a car accident in Oct. 2011. After months of physical therapy at a different therapeutic center, non-standard alternative medicine, unsuccessful arthroscopic surgery by another well-known orthopedic doctor and yet more therapy, I was just about at the end of my rope with chronic 24/7 pain and extremely limited ROM. A friend at work strongly recommended Dr. Freedberg. I made an appt. and was finally correctly diagnosed with Frozen Shoulder Syndrome that required surgical intervention. I had a very good surgical experience at St. Alexis’s new Day Surgery Center. Dr. Freedberg surgically released all the adhesions in my shoulder joint with impressively humane techniques. After only 2 months of intensive PT, I am thrilled to say I am almost 100%! If you’re in need of an excellent orthopedic surgeon, I heartily recommend Dr. Freedberg!

I have been a patient of Dr. Chhadia’s for over a year with a shoulder injury. He has gone above and beyond what any other doctor I have ever seen before in the past. Dr. Chhadia is a very caring and understanding doctor who listens to his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Chhadia’s services and will absolutely use him if I need him in the future. Thank you to everyone at Suburban Orthopedics. U guys are AWESOME!!

Rhonda S. (via Yelp!)

These Doctors are outstanding! They listen and really pay attention to you and your situation. They are positive, kind and caring. Their goal is to make you feel better. I really think highly of them because they take their time with you and don’t rush through like a lot of doctors. They are really wonderful! They are just great at what they do and they CARE. The staff is warm and friendly too which is very important as well.
Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Dr. McNally for your unconditional care!

Kristin Anderson

My son dislocated his shoulder in a high school football game. Because of the commitment of Dr. Freedberg and Dr. Chhadia to attend these games, my son was treated on the field by Dr. Freedberg and surgery was done by Dr. Chhadia. I am a RN, and while at Ashton Surgical Center, I was so impressed with Dr. Chhadia and the center, I ended up as an employee there. I see the everyday results of Dr. Freedberg and Dr. Chhadia’s handiwork, and I have to tell you, they are incredible surgeons!!! The care, compassion and skill these physicians have are far beyond what I have witnessed in my nursing career. We were so lucky to have these fine physicians take care of my son. Jason’s shoulder is now stronger than before he injured it. The expertise of Dr. Chhadia and the PT team is beyond incredible! We are blessed to have Suburban Ortho in Bartlett, and in our lives!!! Thank you so much for all you have done.

Christina L. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg has saved my football, wrestling, and MMA career on two occasions, in addition to preforming both of my mother’s knee replacements (which she loves). In 2007 he repaired my torn labrum and biceps tendon in my left shoulder. The next year I was an all-conference offensive lineman and earned a scholarship to play in college. This past football season I was playing through bone spurs and floating bone fragments in my left elbow. The Dr. near my school had no idea what he was talking about so I decided to take the trip up north and Dr. Freedberg came through for me again. I am only 5 weeks post op and this morning was my first lift after being cleared and I am benching 225+lbs and it feels great overall.
If you are an athlete looking for an Orthopedic surgeon YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Lori-Jayne K. (via Yelp!)

Suburban Orthopaedics is by far the best medical facility I’ve ever been to. Their imaging, physical therapy and medical centers are as professional as they get. Dr. Ankur Chhadia is an excellent physician and I highly recommend him for any type of shoulder treatment. He has performed two rotator cuff surgeries on me in the past 12 months and the treatment I received was exceptional.

Sammie S. (via Yelp!)

After having a horrible experience with a torn meniscus arthroscopy in 2006 by a Florida Orthopedics Surgeon; I was not overjoyed when I learned a slip on the ice from the Chicago winter in 2011 had caused me yet another torn meniscus.
However, my fears were quickly turned around by Dr. Howard Freedberg and his staff; their professionalism and sincere concern for my return to health was the best I have seen. Yes, Dr. Freedberg has on occasion run behind when I have been to his office; yet upon arrival the office staff on Schick would always alert me of any delays in case it would interfere with my schedule – now that’s service! Upon seeing Dr. Freedberg, he would not rush me through just because he was behind. He takes the time giving a thorough exam and answers all of my questions. When needed; he would personally walk me to another member of his staff that would be assisting me further. Now that is Great Service!
My first surgery with Dr. Freedberg was in April 2010 for my left knee. What a difference in my rehab and subsequent outcome from the right knee surgery I had in 2006. I was back to work in a week with minimal swelling (took 6 weeks to rehab in 2006).
My husband was terminally ill at the time and getting to rehab was very difficult. His staff worked with me providing me with the needed knowledge to rehab from home. I do remember the one time I went in, they measured my left knee then my right… seemed confused and re-measured. I laughed and stated… “Your measurement is correct; Dr. Freedberg did such a wonderful job that I literally had no swelling in my left knee at only 2 weeks post op! My right knee has never gone back to its original size after the same surgery in 2006.”
Yet another fall late in 2012 and another torn meniscus in my left knee, my deductible met for 2012 with little time left to get my surgery in before the New Year; Dr. Freedberg and his staff rushed it through for me. My surgery was completed on 12/31/2012.
Dr. Freedberg has always stopped in to see how I am doing prior to surgery, marking the leg for surgery himself to ensure the correct leg is taken care of. He meets with my family afterwards providing them with the outcome of the surgery; then he follows up with me personally by phone the next day to see how I am doing. Here I am only a week post op after yet another fall causing a torn meniscus in my left knee, and again minimal swelling and I can already bend it to 45 degree angle. I highly recommend this office and personally recommend Dr. Freedberg for his compassion, and superior surgical skills with any orthopedic care you need, it will be the best decision you can make towards taking charge of your own health.

Keith K. (via Yelp!)

“I had a visit with Dr. Chhadia for my shoulders (torn rotator cuffs). He was wonderful to talk to. Dr. Chhadia gave me a shot in both shoulders, which my previous doctor for some reason would not do. I have, for the first time in months, slept with no pain and have no pain at all now!
Thank you Dr. Chhadia!”

Susan P. (via Yelp!)

I have known Dr. Freedberg since a hip replacement in 2009. The latest serious surgery I had in September 2012 repairing my biceps tendon was a total surprise and of an emergency nature. Dr. Freedberg and his staff worked to schedule surgery quickly. His treatment of my injury and the assistance of his office and staff for this injury was just excellent.
The surgery went great. My recovery was long, but the rehab went well! The Bartlett office staff for Therapy, Ryan, Romeo, Ben, the rest of the PT’s and staff was just great and helpful.

Julie A

Dr. Chhadia gave excellent care to my father when he broke his femur. He answered me and my mother’s questions and put us at ease before my father had to go into surgery, the care he received afterwards was excellent. It was comforting to have dr. Chhadia tend to my father, he has a great reputation and even one of the nurses before my father went to surgery spoke highly of him because Dr had performed surgery on one of her family members. Thank you Dr. Chhadia for all that you do. My family is very thankful that my father was in the best hands.

Glenn H. (via Yelp!)

I have known Dr. Freedberg for a long time, but never had a serious surgery like the one I had June 2012 repairing my biceps tendon. I have always been very comfortable with his office and staff, but this experience was nothing less of excellent.
The surgery went great. My recovery was long, but the rehab staff is top-notch! Can’t beat the Elgin location for PT… Jason and Michelle are the best, and with Elaine at the front desk, they made it a wonderful process. As I moved to Bartlett office for Work Conditioning program, Ryan, Romeo, Ben, the rest of the PT’s and staff were just as great and helpful.
I’m a perfectionist, and was not ok with “never being the same” regarding my shoulder and bicep procedure. Suburban Ortho got me back to a physical state that I was beginning to think would never be achieved.
I love them. You will love them. These are facts.

Henry Payne

Due to an old injury and arthritis, I needed a total shoulder replacement. Dr Chhadia was great – virtually no pain from the surgery or after!! Physical therapy afterwards gave me a better than anticipated range of motion.

~ Nathan (and his bicep tendon) (via Yelp!)

I am a Police Officer and while working I chased down a guy and while trying to subdue him, I did a lot of damage to my knee. I went to Suburban Orthopedics because Dr. Freedberg had treated my wife for her knee injury. I really thought that my knee was so bad that I would not be able to return to work.
At my request, Dr. Freedberg started me out with physical therapy instead of trying surgery right away. I am very happy that he listened to my wishes and worked with me to try to accomplish my rehabilitation without surgery. However, after a couple of months of physical therapy, we decided that the knee would not get better without surgery. He did a tremendous job with my knee. I would recommend Dr. Freedberg and his wonderful staff to anyone that wants a doctor who listens to you and does fantastic work!

–from Vitals

I took my daughter to Dr. Chhadia after we had seen 2 other surgeons in the area. They had recommended surgery for her knee injury and I wanted to get another opinion. Within a minute of meeting Dr. Chhadia, I knew I had come to the right doctor. He quickly diagnosed her problem (even though it had taken the other doctors several trials of wrong therapy before they figured it out). He told us the problem, and the different options we had to fix it. Even my daughter felt at ease as he explained everything in a thorough manner but without talking down to us. We have seen our share of doctors and I know how hard it is to find someone with that combination. As a parent, you want the very best for your children, and I felt very confident trusting my daughter to Dr. Chhadia’s care. I now know i made the right decision, as he successfully fixed her knee and she is now fully recovered. I recommend dr. Chhadia to anyone of my family and friends. We are happy to have find such a caring and competent doctor.

Al F. (via Yelp!)

I had knee replacement Jan 2012 by Dr. Freedberg and I am so happy with the results, I have my mobility back and am very pleased with the results. His staff is the best and I had great care before and after the surgery.

John D.( Healthgrades.com)

Dr. Chhadia was great from start to finish with my hip replacement. My hip had reached a point where I was walking with a cane. It’s been about 8 weeks now since my surgery l and I’m living with no pain and back to my daily routine. I’m back to work and the gym five days a week. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Chhadia

Jody L. (via Yelp!)

The staff and physicians at Suburban Orthopedics are probably the most professional and caring health care professionals that I have ever encountered. From the moment you step into the office you are treated with respect, the front desk staff politely follows all HIPAA privacy practices, the clinical staff is top notch at gathering your medical history and rapidly types it into their electronic medical record, the x-ray tech is on site very efficient in taking and downloading your x-rays, but the best part of the visit is being seen by Dr. Howard Freedberg! this man is one of the most intelligent physicians I have ever come across, he is determine to provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan that will have you pain free in a matter of days. I have seen Dr. Freedberg twice for 2 different medical complaints, and I have received the best treatment. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who needs a treatment for ortho problems. My wife works at a hospital in Chicago, and if asked, she always recommends patients to Suburban Orthopedics first!

Tracey( Healthgrades.com)

My experience with Dr Chhadia was nothing but positive. I was referred to him for shoulder pain. He took the steps necessary for a quick diagnosis. A short time later I am pain free.

Anthony C. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg is skilled, trustworthy and I wouldn’t want anyone else cutting into my body! I had shoulder surgery, quite extensive, one muscle was not torn! I was healing strong! Then I fell again! I ripped a rotator cuff full thick tear. He was so concerned and not in a hurry to operate again let my shoulder settle down a bit let the inflammation subside for about 6 weeks so he could truly see the damage. He did another cuff operation and now I’m just not healing, I still trust him. He boldly searched for a reason and when it was out of his skill set he admitted it. Not his fault not my fault my body is just not healing.

William B.( Healthgrades.com)

I couldn’t believe how fast I was able to start therapy and get back into normal living..Dr. Chhaddia did a great job with the surgery and follow up that even my therapist are starting to recommended him to patients…

Alecia L. (via Yelp!)

I am currently seeing Dr. Freedberg for a Workers Comp neck injury, and from day one, not just Dr. Freedberg, but the WHOLE staff has been top shelf.
I knew of this office when I lived in St Charles. I now live in Rockton which is 1/2 hour NW of Rockford. I gladly pay for the gas to see the best of the best.
You should be very proud of what you built up, I sure am.

Connie M. (via Facebook)

I have been a patient of Dr. Howard Freedberg for both osteoarthritic knees since 2011. I have always felt like he sincerely cares about my well-being, treatment plan, and comfort in mobility throughout many(19) injections both knees combined. He told me he will stick with me and help me remain an active fitness instructor. He’s the best! Dr Freedberg and Dr Chhadia are the Very Best,,everyone in the Bartlett office are great to work
I worked as surgical tech for 12 years and had the chance to work with Howard Freedberg 20 years ago. I was amazed at the recovery of his patients. He would bring in patients and re-scope the joint after recovery and the joint would look like new. I remembered that when I was needing some orthopaedic help with my knee. I just had my knee scope done I am pleased to be on the mend. I would recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone with orthopaedic issues.

Jerry Bowgren (via Yelp!)

I definitely do not have either enough words or the right words to tell you how much I love Suburban Orthopedics. I have known Dr. Freedberg forever and he has become a very dear friend. Dr. McNally and all of the therapists have been supportive and loving through everything I have gone through. You cannot go wrong becoming involved with this group of people. The staff is warm and caring and can’t help enough. If you do have concerns the office staff is ready and willing to listen and act on your behalf. I do not think that I have ever encountered a more well-rounded community who is totally dedicated to your well-being and care, both physically and emotionally. Sometimes you have to wait awhile to see the docs, but when you do it is totally worth it. They make you feel as though you are the most important person and I have never felt as though they were too busy or did not care. I LOVE Suburban Orthopaedic – I think you can tell I am a little biased.

Lori

I have been a patient at Suburban Orthopaedics for many years, and have been a patient of Dr. Freedberg for almost as long. During that time, I had the physicians at Suburban Orthopaedics do surgical work on my elbow, and the procedure was an unqualified success. Not only was the surgery itself successful, the pre- and post-operative care was outstanding. I am a medical professional myself, and thus do not hand out recommendations often, but if you need orthopaedic care, you would be hard-pressed to find better care than that offered by Dr. Freedberg and his staff.

Linda B. (via Yelp!)

I am so fortunate to have had Suburban Orthopaedics and Dr. Freedberg recommended to me by my family physician. My name is Robert and I worked as a letter carrier for the Post Office for 25 years. Over those 25 years walking many mail routes and going up and down thousands of stairs helped advance osteoarthritis in my right knee and right shoulder. I was walking with a terrible limp and tremendous pain. Dr. Freedberg recommended a total knee replacement and surgery to my shoulder. It’s been almost 2 years since having my right knee replaced and just over a year since my shoulder surgery. Long story short, I now walk without a limp and little if any pain. I can also lift my arm in a normal way without pain. There are some limitations. No more jogging and I won’t be able to pitch any more. I can now live a normal retired life. I want to thank you Dr. Freedberg and everybody at Suburban Orthopedics.

Pete

Dr. Howard Freedberg or should I say the “Knee Expert” this man is the absolute best at what he does. Dr. Freedberg has an undeniable confidence in what he does that rubs off on you from the moment you meet him. You can tell that he cares about your well-being pre-surgery and post-surgery. I am 24 years old and have had knee surgery on both of my knees (torn cartilage, subluxing kneecap) from years of playing sports. I am missing a hefty amount of cartilage in both my knees but do not notice any pain/discomfort on a daily basis. Dr. Freedberg has done an exceptional job to say the least. If you want all encompassing care starting with pre-surgery planning to surgery all the way to rehabilitation/total recovery then get yourself to Dr. Freedberg’s office.
Dr. Freedberg I just want to say “thank you and you are “The Man”

Robert G

“I worked as a driver on a garbage truck and one day I was stepping down out of the cab when the step I was using broke. I fell, pinning my leg, and twisting my knee which caused me the pain I was feeling. I went and saw Dr. Freedberg and after X-Rays and an MRI he told me that I had torn my meniscus in my knee. He recommended I had surgery and to my surprise it was a very easy surgery, so easy in fact I walked out of the hospital that day! The recovery was also easy although through my progress some pain still lingered. I was so impressed with Dr. Freedberg and his staff that I returned to him for another evaluation and we discovered arthritis in my knee so advanced that I am now in need of a knee replacement. Since this news I have worked my hardest and lost 60 pounds, I have gone back to school and will soon graduate with my Masters Degree and certificate to begin a new career in education. Everybody at Suburban Ortho really cares about their patients and what they need. They are helpful, kind, professional and do not waste your time! Dr. Freedberg is not only a great surgeon and doctor but a wonderful person. He really takes his time to tell you what he is going to do and talks very respectfully; he treats you like a person and not “just a patient” and I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks Dr. Freedberg!”

Tom

I WAS A PATINT OF DR. FREEDBERG FOR A FEW WEEKS. I NEEDED TO CONTINUE TREATMENT BUT COULDNT BECAUSE OF TRANSPORTATION ISSUES. IF I COULD I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE CONTINUED TREATMENT WITH HIM BECAUSE I STILL HAVE ISSUES WITH MY LEFT FOOT AND ANKLE ESPECIALLY SINCE IT HAS GOTTEN COLD.

Eric

I want to thank you for all that you have done for me and my knee. When I first got hurt I felt that my football career was over. You have given me another chance to play the game the I love so much. There may be other doctors that perform that surgery, but I know God put you in charge of my surgery for a reason….”

IRMA L. DILLARD

I have had Dr. Freedberg perform a total of three different surgeries, one on my left rotator cup (shoulder), another on my right knee, and the third on my left knee. I was in the masonry trade for thirty years and anyone in the trades knows it takes a toll on your body no matter what trade it is. All of the follow up procedure was excellent, his physical therapy program had me up, out and about in no time and I haven’t had a bit of problem doing whatever I want in any of the three areas. Actually I still play 16″ soft ball and I’m 65. So as far as I’m concerned Dr. Freedberg and his staff are the greatest

Jon

I just felt like I had to sit down and write this note to you to tell you what a wonderful doctor you are and what a wonderful assistant you have also. You two make me feel like I am not a bother, Like I feel I am so many times. What I am really in awe at is the nurse you have. No one can ever replace Frannie and I hope you know and appreciate that. I have been to many doctors with all my illnesses and have never felt so comfortable with ANY nurse, after only a few visits, like I feel with Frannie. She is a very compassionate and caring person in general and it is wonderful to be hugged by a nurse because you are in pain and scared to death. Frannie returned a call to me this morning that I already had taken care of, but as I was hanging up I found myself telling her that I love her and she responded back that she loves me. This I think is, WAY BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY. She is great and she is one that makes coming to your office a highlight of my day. THUMBS UP TO ALL OF YOU!!!!! Thanks Again”

Larry Hunt

I’m a new patient of Dr. Freedberg suffering from a torn bicep tendon in elbow. Previous Dr. was unable to get my range of motion back due to cutting the tendon too short while reattaching it. Dr. Freedberg (who is an AMAZING Dr.) provided me with an “EXTENSIONATER II” to stretch the tendon back to the correct position. This device works by straightening my arm and applying pressure to my elbow gradually. If it wasn’t for Dr. Freedberg and this miracle device, my life would be in shambles. Thank you again Dr. Freedberg for your expertise and dedication to helping me get my arm back.

Sharon

“Dr. Freedberg and his staff have gone beyond my expectations and I appreciate their friendliness and high quality of care they have given me through 2 surgeries and physical therapy. I recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone looking for a surgeon that is not only an expert in orthopedic surgery, but one that is also kind and caring, takes the time to answer your questions, and explains things in a way you can understand without having to have a medical degree. Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Suburban Orthopaedics for making this experience better than I ever expected!”

Olson

Dr. Freedberg has repaired my shoulder and replaced my knee, couldn’t be happier. The office staff was helpful and caring. He made a bad situation better with good care and concern. I would recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone.

Joe

I’ve been seeing Dr. Freedberg for years, he did my carpal tunnel surgery. He put me at ease before surgery and I am so pleased with the results. Also has treated me for shoulder injury. He is very professional I would recommend him to anyone.

Ralph McMahon

I was having leg pain for a while so my husband referred me to Dr. Freedberg. It was the best thing I could have done! Dr. Freedberg showed me the problem was in my hip and gave me my options on how to deal with it. He answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable in my decision. I chose replacement. The surgery was quick and his physical therapy staff got me right back on track. It’s been only eight months since my surgery and I am at 100%! I would refer Dr. Freedberg to anyone!

Joe Anne

I went to Dr. Freedberg for right rotator cup. He performed the surgery after which he directed my physical therapy and the result was excellent. If you follow his instructions and that of his staff you will find that the result will be wonderful and your mobility will be restored. I highly recommend Dr. Freedberg without any reservations.

Lori Hudziak

I have been using Suburban Orthopaedics, I was referred to them and I would refer everyone to them. Using Dr. Freedberg and Novoseletsky was a complete joy. The doctors are going to talk to you about your life, not just your problems that you are there for. I was very impressed that they were there for you and not your company or insurance. It is all for you. Impressive building, employees, and you will also be impressed with them. Take my word, you will like them all.

Ron L.

I am very fortunate that I found Suburban Orthopedics and Doctor Freedberg. After my shoulder injury, Doctor Freedberg and his staff of wonderful people made me feel like they really cared about me as an individual, and that they were genuinely concerned about my wellbeing overall. My surgery was flawless, and the therapy was highly professional.
I am healthy now…feeling great, and I am active again. I know that the professional staff at Suburban Orthopedics played a huge part in my recovery. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs orthopedic medical and therapeutic services. They really do it right!

Jack grooms

I’ve had both my rotator cuffs and most recently a broken arm repaired by Dr. Freedberg over the years… He has done excellent work… everything is 100%

Dan B.

Thank you! My experience was more than one could imagine. From day one everyone was so professional and had caring in their hearts. Dr.Freedberg was a pleasant man from diagnosis to recovery. Enough can’t be said about his knowledge of each individual he works with in their treatments. He was persistent that I do more than my share to make the surgery a success. It worked. My pain was removed after several weeks of therapy and perseverance. I would expect him to do the same for all who come to him for a surgical miracle. He works hard but finds a way to keep all commitments as scheduled. Thanks Dr. Freedberg.

Robert Kujawa

I was in a car accident where the impact sent my right foot through the floor and almost completely severed it. Dr. Freedberg performed the surgery, and is the one who saved my foot from amputation. Due to his care, follow up care and physical therapy with assistant Anthony Bartkowiak I am able to walk and do almost everything as well as anyone. The professionalism of the staff at Suburban Orthopedics in answering questions, getting information, and scheduling of follow up procedures is outstanding.
Thank you Dr. Freedberg.

Walter

Dr.Freedberg repaired my knee and its better than new. I can go up and down stairs like a normal person, not one at a time.
Thank you Dr. Freedberg you are the BEST.

George De Ford

I had shoulder surgery back in April with Dr. Freedberg. He did an excellent job with what he had to work with. After surgery explained what he did, and post-op treatment was great. I would say to anyone who needs orthopedic surgeon to go see Dr. Freedberg, and let him explain how he can help.
Thanks again Dr. Freedberg

Deborah L. Futschek

I have been a patient of Dr. Freedberg’s for 28 years from having torn my ACL at the age of 23 to having a knee replacement at 48. He is the most reliable orthopedic doctor I have met. He has always been there for myself and my family when in need of an expert’s opinion. He is very reliable and trustworthy when it comes to medical advice. He is a doctor I would highly recommend – look how many years I have been seeing him that states more than any words can say. He is awesome and an excellent orthopedic surgeon. I cannot thank him enough for what he has done for me throughout the years! Thank you Dr. Freedberg!!

Danny DiMaggio

I was referred to Dr. Freedberg. I am so glad I went to him for my complex torn meniscus. The Dr.’s very confident attitude made me know I was at the right place. The Dr. is on your side, he is there for you. He isn’t worried about your employer, your lawyer. You are his focus. Tell him anything and it stays with him no one else. It helps you relax during you recovery. He also advised me to have work reconditioning which was GREAT, because I had to be 100% to return to work. Take the worry out of your rehab; go see Dr. Freedberg and his fantastic staff.

J.S.

Dr. Howard Freedberg and Suburban Orthopedics offers state-of-the-art facilities, accurate, reliable and professional diagnosis and treatment. If he was a quarterback, he would be Tom Brady, and the team around him, the New England Patriots. Dr. F handled my meniscus repair with ease, and virtually no pain.
Details: Dr. Freedberg diagnosed my meniscal tear accurately and professionally using MRI. You would think this is par for the course, but it is not. (Thinking I just had a sprain, I had previously seen a top orthopedic at a large practice near our house who took only an X-ray and opined “you have inflammation, and possibly a pinched or torn meniscus. It might get better, if not come back and see me.” He also gave me a tutorial on why MRIs aren’t really all that helpful because “everybody has some meniscus damage over time.”) Turns out I didn’t “get better”, I got worse, my knowledgeable sister urged me to get an MRI, so I sought out Dr. Freedberg this time, as we have a long history, and I had lost faith and confidence in the other physician, for that and other reasons. For example, the “other” doctor’s assistant gave me a cheap and ineffective knee brace, again opining “probably Medicare will pay for it.” It wasn’t a “durable medical device” and so they didn’t. Duh. They should have known, but again, they weren’t all that patient-centric. What the hell, ey? Dr. Freedberg, on the other hand, has a staff just for durable medical devices; they provided me a deluxe $300 model, worked great, Medicare approved and covered. Dr. Freedberg also has on site MRI, PT, the works. Everything about Dr. Freedberg and Suburban Orthopedics is spot on, state-of-the-art, accurate, reliable and professional: no “opinions” vs. hard fact MRI diagnosis, no misdirection about DMD’s, Medicare reimbursements, etc. Now for the best part: the surgery. Normally quite outgoing, Dr. Freedberg had his game face on for the procedure, done at Ashton Surgery Center, near his office, did a great job, as I expected, I had no pain afterwards. Zero. I felt a little burning sensation on my knee in hours after, that went away. However: In the spirit of full disclosure, one problem ensued. The pre and post op surgical nurse at Ashton Surgery Center (who was otherwise a wonderful and sensitive person) urged me to take two Norcos, day and night, every four hours for several days (“set your alarm for middle of the night — you MUST stay ahead of the pain!!!” She never asked if I actually had any pain, just assumed I would be in agony, I guess). The actual pill bottle said take “only as needed,” one or two pills, but me being an (overly) dutiful patient I followed her advice, took 2 pills every four hours and got some terrific nausea and constipation from the hydrocodone (both abated in time). Bad advice. I actually never had any pain from the procedure, probably due to Dr. Freedberg’s skill. Dr. Freedberg is the best, so is his associate, Dr. Tony C. I saw Dr. Freedberg in 2009 for knee pain; he diagnosed me then with tight IT band, which was overcome with exercises. So it’s not all about surgery. He handled my son’s ACL tear many years ago; my son went on to do triathlon, marathon and squat 250 lbs for reps, more than 20 years later, with no problem. My daughter’s wrist injury he referred to a specialist (correctly). In conclusion, I live a long distance from Bartlett, but drive there willingly to go with the best. We trust and admire Dr. Freedberg, and I am happy to have him on my team as our go-to orthopedist. I highly recommend Dr. Freedberg. If you live southwest, great, if not, it’s worth the drive to have the no. 1 orthopedic physician on your side.

Robert Leggett

I was referred to Dr. Freedberg after an accident that resulted in a fracture of my leg. He and his staff were wonderful. They were kind and compassionate and never were anything but professional. I was always seen at my appointment time and had my questions answered honestly and openly. This is the best doctor’s office I have been involved with as far as treatment of both my injury and me as a person. Thank you to all.

Jim Smith

My name is Jim. I’m 62. I’ve been running non-competitively for more than 40 years. Drs. Freedberg and Bartkowiak have been as committed to help me run as I am committed to running. There may be other doctors as skilled as them, maybe not; but IMO there is no other team of doctors as skilled AND committed to respecting the patient and the patients goals as these guys! Just went through an arthroscopic repair of my right knee cartilage and meniscus – and, no kidding, I mowed the lawn 3 days later, was riding my bike 3-5 miles a day after 4 days – and experienced very little discomfort, let alone pain during rehab. Maybe that’s not to be expected all the time – but my recovery really has been nearly painless. THANKS! I MEAN IT!!

Linda McDonald

About 9 months ago I met with Dr. Freedberg to have him look at my shoulder, and after three years of struggling with problems all Dr. Freedberg did was look at my shoulder and he had the diagnosis immediately. Three months later Dr. Freedberg performed an arthroscopic procedure on my right shoulder for multi directional instability. Dr. Freedberg was wonderful with explaining the procedure, and my recovery into physical therapy went smoothly with no problems. He is one of the finest orthopaedic surgeons I know of and he is very supportive during the recovery process. I would recommend him to anyone as the person to go to for any orthopaedic problem!

James Kmetty

Dr. Freedberg has taken great care of me. From treatment of pre., during and post surgery. I don’t think there is a doctor out there that takes better care of their patients than Doctor Freedberg.

Hannah

I recently had over gone surgery on my Rotator cuff. I received the treatment from Howard Freedberg, M.D. and he did an excellent job. I can’t put in words how pleased I am with how the surgery went. At first I was skeptical but Dr. Freedberg reassured me everything was going to be alright and comforted me. I was very satisfied with the outcome.I have been a patient of doctor Freedberg’s for over 13 years. He has assisted my son, daughter and has replaced both of my hips as well as scoped one knee. He is an excellent surgeon and I have always found him and his staff to be outstanding. I would and have recommended Suburban and Dr. Freedberg to my friends and family.

Rick Mansino

Dr. Freedberg is my hero. After meniscus surgery on both my knees, his compassion and skills as a top notch surgeon are impeccable. Now I’m able to get back to the game I love, Senior Softball and it’s all due to the wonderful surgeries performed by Dr. Freedberg and all the great physical therapy from Ryan and Romeo Thanks for giving me my game back.

Sam Ferguson

Dr. Freedberg did carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands over 10 years ago and I couldn’t be happier, they are fantastic! I also had rotator cuff surgery and my left shoulder and between Doc and Tony they are both unbelievable! Two weeks after they did the surgery it felt better than it did the day before the surgery, I was so impressed with my results that now I am actually looking forward to getting my right shoulder done as well! The physical therapists at Elgin did a phenomenal job! 5 stars all around for Dr. Freedberg and all of Suburban Orthopaedics”

E.T.

I am so happy that I decided to go to Dr. Peterson. At first I was afraid because I usually only go to doctors that I know. Right from the start Dr. Peterson showed awesome “bedside” manor. He talked to me as a person and not just another patient. After surgery Dr. Peterson and his staff have been there for every question and concern. Dr. Peterson has given me instructions every step of the way with no surprises.
Thank you Dr. Peterson from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done. You made a painful situation feel painless.

Tom S.

I have been a patient of doctor Freedberg’s for over 13 years. He has assisted my son, daughter and has replaced both of my hips as well as scoped one knee. He is an excellent surgeon and I have always found him and his staff to be outstanding. I would and have recommended Suburban and Dr. Freedberg to my friends and family.

N.S.

I am beyond grateful and lucky that the traumatic night I slipped on black ice and ended up breaking my ankle completely, Dr Kyle Peterson was on call at the hospital I was rushed to. Dr Peterson made me feel at ease since the very beginning. He explained exactly what and how the surgery to fix my ankle would go and he made sure I was comfortable before rolling me into the Operating Room. He has done a phenomenal job with reconstructing my ankle! Every check up after the surgery, Dr Peterson made me feel important, and he truly cared about my progress. I never felt as though I was just another patient, each check up felt more like I was seeing a good friend who happened to have done surgery on me. He didn’t just care about my ankle, but he genuinely wanted to make sure that all aspects of my life were not suffering. I am beyond grateful for Dr Peterson. I have recommended him to all of my friends and family, who have all also been very impressed with Dr Peterson. He is an amazing doctor, and a truly amazing person. Best doctor ever.

Sam Ferguson

The whole staff at the office is there for your every need, you call in and they are right back to you with little wait. Dr. Freedberg and Dr. Tony made the left shoulder cuff surgery go very smoothly not that there wasn’t pain but they made me comfortable and healing quick. I would refer everyone to contact Dr. Freedberg’s team and you can bet I’m satisfied….

J.K.

Feeling confident going into a surgery was certainly a plus! Dr. Peterson thoroughly explained all my options and I knew I was in good hands. I have never been so impressed with a doctor in all my 63 years. His caring disposition, promptness, and true desire to do the very best for me confirmed how passionate he is as a doctor and surgeon. Walking pain free is the best feeling ever! I am extremely thankful for the exemplary services I received by Dr. Peterson.

Judy Carlstrom

Dr. Freedberg was wonderful in finding and successfully treating the reason for my 5 years of pain and has me walking without a limp and dancing at my daughter’s wedding this weekend! 3 other doctors were unable to do that! Thank you Dr. Freedberg!!!

Toni Lacy-Royal

I am very grateful to have followed the referral to Dr. Freedberg in the winter of 2009. Thanks to his dedication and his vast knowledge of his field, Dr. Freedberg discovered that the problem was really much more serious spinal cord compression problem which I never expected. As most would do, I sought other doctors for a second and third opinion, I then discovered that Dr. McNally was had more experience with triple level cervical fusions than any other orthopaedic surgeon in this area and was held in the high esteem and recommendations of fellow surgeons. I must admit I was truly impressed when more than one doctor will admit that ‘your’ doctor IS among the best of the best. Thank You Dr’s Freedberg and McNally for saving my life. The road to recovery has been rough however I’m grateful for my doctors, they are the BEST!!!

Paul & Marilynn Serra

When my husband first hurt his back at work I had no idea the long, long road ahead of us. After 14 months of office visits, physical therapy, injections, dealing with workman’s comp issues, etc. we finally ended up at Dr. McNally’s office . . . what a lucky break for us! The staff at Suburban Orthopaedics was not only efficient and knowledgeable but also caring. We were well prepared for what lay ahead. The surgery went well and he is recovering quite nicely . . . Thank You Dr. McNally!
I would like to thank Suburban Orthopaedics for a great treatment, the best dr. `s in town and friends… thank you again for all your help when I need it the help…

Toni Lacy-Royal

I originally met Dr. Freedberg when my 15 year old son broke his collarbone wrestling the high school recommended Freedberg great decision very professional staff and great doctor in 2010 I needed a doctor to fix my knee he said I needed it replaced so he did great decision his staff and Dr. Freedberg did great job I had no problems it’s been almost two years and the repaired knee is great the other knee is bothering me so it was a no brainer to go to him and I did he gave me his opinion and he will do whatever it takes to fix problem great staff and doctor

Trinidad

The problem is where to start. I have had a couple of bad injuries. The first one was my lower back. My primary Doc. sent me to Suburban Ortho. I saw Dr. McNally. We tried therapy, injections with no luck. We decided on surgery. The time he took to explain things was awesome. It is not common these days to have a Dr. spend so much time with their Patients. The surgery was performed; the aftercare was second to none. Five months after I returned to work I fell off a ladder breaking my heel. (Ouch) I did not pass go and went straight to Suburban Ortho. I met with Dr. Freedberg. The only option was surgery. Surgery went well. The aftercare was again great. But as my luck would have it I had a second surgery that I am still recovering from. The compassion and knowledge of Dr. Freedberg is superior. The Staff is so caring. I need to mention Physical therapy, x-ray and MRI. Everyone is great. A true one stop shop. I can’t ask for anything better. I tell everyone how great Suburban Ortho is and always recommend them.

Clark Schram

Dr. Freedberg and his staff are absolutely wonderful, very caring and friendly. He was recommended to us several years ago by a friend when my husband required surgery; his recovery was quick with minimal pain due to the magical hands of Dr. Freedberg. Several years later I also required the need of an orthopaedic surgeon, with no doubt in mind I choose Dr. Freedberg as my surgeon… after all he’s the BEST!!

John Brandes

Dr. McNally and his team are the best around!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again for everything that you have done for Dave!!!!!!!!!!!

Phyllis Dewey

I went to Dr. Freedberg in September to get right knee checked. After exam it was determined I needed full knee replacement. Everyone at Suburban Orthopaedics is fantastic! Dr. Freedberg explained fully what the procedure would entail and what to expect with the outcome. He didn’t miss a beat. At my 6 week checkup it was hoped my knee would be bending at least 90 degrees. Even with hard work in therapy I came up short. I was then scheduled for manipulation under anesthesia with Dr. Freedberg. The manipulation was just what I needed to make my recovery. I just had my 3 month checkup and I am now bending my leg over 120 degrees. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and would recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone needing knee surgery. Thanks to everyone at Suburban Orthopaedics for the wonderful care! See you at my 6 month checkup!!

Angie Cashmer

Dr. McNally is one of my Top 10 favorite people! I am year post a two-level fusion. He has given me hope for a future beyond back pain! Thanks to the Suburban Orthopedic Team!

Judy Reed

I was very nervous about having to replace my knee. I now have replaced both my knees & couldn’t be happier. After PT, I could move around better & without pain. I’m looking forward to playing softball & golf this summer. Thank you Dr. Freedberg & your team.

Marsha B.J

Dr. McNally and his team are wonderful group of caring people!! Dr. McNally has been my husband’s doctor for going on 5 years. We drive two plus hours to get to his office and he and his staff make it worth it!! Great job Dr. McNally, Kristen, Matt we can’t thank you enough for all that you have done!!!!!

John Michalisko

Dave & Angie

These Doctors are outstanding! They listen and really pay attention to you and your situation. They are positive, kind and caring. Their goal is to make you feel better. I really think highly of them because they take their time with you and don’t rush through like a lot of doctors. They are really wonderful! They are just great at what they do and they CARE. The staff is warm and friendly too which is very important as well.
Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Dr. McNally for your unconditional care!

YOLANDA WRIGHT

If you are someone considering a total knee replacement, look no further than Suburban Orthopaedics. Dr. Howard Freedberg and his dedicated staff are outstanding. They are a caring and understanding group of individuals, headed by a brilliant doctor that is all business, but also compassionate to your needs for a better quality of life. He possesses in his hands a gift from God to perform your surgery and get you back on track with your life pain-free!
Thank you,

Christina L. (via Yelp!)

I definitely do not have either enough words or the right words to tell you how much I love Suburban Orthopedics. I have known Dr. Freedberg forever and he has become a very dear friend. Dr. McNally and all of the therapists have been supportive and loving through everything I have gone through. You cannot go wrong becoming involved with this group of people. The staff is warm and caring and can’t help enough. If you do have concerns the office staff is ready and willing to listen and act on your behalf. I do not think that I have ever encountered a more well-rounded community who is totally dedicated to your well-being and care, both physically and emotionally. Sometimes you have to wait awhile to see the docs, but when you do it is totally worth it. They make you feel as though you are the most important person and I have never felt as though they were too busy or did not care. I LOVE Suburban Orthopedic – I think you can tell I am a little biased.

Mike Reder

I want to say that my experiences with knee replacement with Doctor Howard Freedberg have been wonderful and he is a blessing to all who are under his care. He is all business and I feel safe a secure knowing he has the training and expertise to improve my health and overall quality of life.

Linda B. ( via Yelp!)

3 years and I am still doing super. What a great job you have done. No pain in my back and the feeling in my left leg is back. And yes, I am still dancing. What a great thing you have done for me and I’m sure other people also. Thanks again!”

Wayne Domke

I want to give kudos to Suburban Orthopaedics for the treatment I received after a recent car accident which required surgery. Dr. Freedberg performed the surgery and after subsequent therapy, I’m fully recovered and very satisfied with Suburban Orthopaedics.

Russell Streeter

Dr. Howard Freedberg performed two total hip replacements for me this year. He did the right one on January 23rd and the left one on June 1st. Both operations were flawless with no complications. I am very happy with the results. I was able to walk without crutch or cane after only two weeks on the second hip. Two years prior Dr. Freedberg did a major rotator cuff repair on my right shoulder, again, flawless. This is a very professional and sophisticated orthopedic practice. I recommend it highly to anyone considering hip or shoulder surgery.

Sharon O.

I had such bad back and leg pain that I could no longer drive or sit at my desk. I ended up having to work from home in a recliner chair and on pain medications. I six weeks I made four trips to the emergency room because the pain was out of control. In late October I went to see Dr. Novoseletsky for pain management. He explained that there were four discs in my back that were creating nerve related issues. He patiently explained the complexities of treating back pain and that we could only do one treatment at a time. He promised me that we would get to the source of the problem and get it resolved; he kept his promise to me. It took about seven injections, a cauterization, then one more injection (there were a number of nerves involved) and I am back to driving, working at my office, and even wearing heels again! My pain went from a 10 out of 10 to a 2 out of 10 at the most. I think a lot of people expect a one shot miracle cure but that is unrealistic. Dr. Novoseletsky is the most compassionate doctor I have ever known – he is absolutely amazing. I encourage anyone reading this to not give up on pain management – Dr. Novoseletsky can help you!

Dan B.

I am very fortunate that I found Suburban Orthopedics and Doctor Freedberg. After my shoulder injury, Doctor Freedberg and his staff of wonderful people made me feel like they really cared about me as an individual, and that they were genuinely concerned about my well being overall. My surgery was flawless, and the therapy was highly professional.
I am healthy now…feeling great, and I am active again. I know that the professional staff at Suburban Orthopedics played a huge part in my recovery. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs orthopedic medical and therapeutic services. They really do it right!

Vince DePinto

I was in a car accident in May of 2013. I suffered lots of neck and back pain in effect of the accident. I was referred to start physical therapy. After a few months of physical therapy, the pain did not go away. I was then referred to Dr. Novoseletsky at Suburban Orthopaedics. He examined my areas of pain and suggested injections. The injections have helped immensely to the point of no returning pain. I want to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Novoseletsky and his team.

Dale Spenner

I would like to thank Suburban Orthopaedics for a great treatment, the best dr. `s in town and friends… thank you again for all your help when I need it the help…

Jack grooms

I have been using Suburban Orthopaedics, I was referred to them and I would refer everyone to them. Using Dr. Freedberg and Novoseletsky where a complete joy. The doctors are going to talk to you about your life, not just your problems that you are there for. I was very impressed that they were there for you and not your company or insurance. It is all for you. Impressive building, employees, and you will also be impressed with them. Take my word, you will like them all.

Ron L.

I went to Dr. Freedberg for right rotator cup. He performed the surgery after which he directed my physical therapy and the result was excellent. If you follow his instructions and that of his staff you will find that the result will be wonderful and your mobility will be restored. I highly recommend Dr. Freedberg without any reservations.

Dr. Freedberg performed a tendon repair on my ankle after a work injury. Dr. was very thorough and the repair was a success. Dr. Freedberg made sure that I was comfortable and alleviated any worries or fears I had. He is a very busy MD and he still makes the time for each patient, which makes you feel as though you are their only patient. The doctor was late for surgery that day, as he had an emergency case. They made sure (as I was in the hospital waiting) that I was updated each step of the way. Afterward, I attended PT and the therapists were excellent and very committed to my care. They were very convenient with their hours and scheduling. I am not only a patient, but also an RN and have seen many, many doctors in my career and I can truly testify that Dr. Freedberg is top-notch. His staff is very friendly and accommodating. The entire office process is streamlined: from your initial convenient appt. to the lush office waiting area. Once you are in the room, they quickly send you for x-ray and their Rn does the initial history and physical. Usually you will then see Tony B. PA and he will exam you and prepare for Dr. Freedberg. Doctor will examine you and if any additional testing is required, they have an MRI right in his office. They really try to minimize time spent in the office. I was very impressed with the whole process. Tony B., Doctor Freedberg’s PA, is outstanding. He is gentle and thorough and very kind. Following surgery, I had additional pain and he and the entire office was so easy to get a hold of (even though it was evening). In this day and age, when there are so many doctors to choose from, I can really testify that this is the place to go!

Jinene B. (via Yelp!)

I suffered through chronic pain for 7 years with a condition called, Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). Besides the fact that there is inflammation throughout my entire body, my right hip and lower back were the most debilitating. There were mornings I could not get out of bed and nights when it took me a long time to fall asleep trying to mentally fight through the pain.Throughout the years, I have seen many professional doctors and specialist without getting the proper help or treatments I needed to feel better. I become depressed and after a while, lost all hope in feeling better again, until the day I walked into Suburban Orthopaedics and met with Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky. Dr. Novoseletsky is well educated on my condition and immediately focused on my SI Joints, which can create severe painful discomfort issues due to the AS.I went through a series of Sacroiliac Joint injections and treatments. My pain subsided about 85% and I feel fantastic. The first injection gave me immediate relief that I cried happy tears all the way home. I was so overwhelmed, that after all these years I finally found a doctor who can offer a solution to my pain and give me my life back. I am now able to do all the things I never thought I was going to be able to do again. I am currently 37 years old and no longer feel like I’m 90 years old.
I feel very blessed and grateful to God for guiding me to this treatment; and to such a good and professional doctor as Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky. He is one of the few doctors I’ve seen who takes time to listen, answer questions, and care about my well-being. I can say the same thing about the entire staff that stands behind hm. I am now enjoying my life with my two little kids; and being as active as I once was.

Joe Anne

I’ve been seeing Dr. Freedberg for years, he did my carpal tunnel surgery. He put me at ease before surgery and I am so pleased with the results. Also has treated me for shoulder injury. He is very professional I would recommend him to anyone.

William Nowak

I had been getting shots in my back for a few months, when my original back Dr. got sick. And told me to find another back Dr. without any of my information to give and no records of my MRI, I had to find a new doctor, until I was referred to Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky. I have just a little pain in my back now and I can now
walk without dragging my right leg. I recommend him to everyone, and not to worry for. He is very good and gentle when he gave me my shots.
Thank you

Pat Nowak (via Yelp!)

My name is Pat, and I just want to say how happy I am with Dr. Dmitry Novoseletsky. For years I have been suffering with back pains, and was not able to walk at all. I did go to one back Dr. and didn’t do much at all with helping me to take a walk. I found out that not only do I have 4 crushed vertebrates in the middle of my back, but also in my tailbone, and my neck. When I tried to walk, the pain would be in my hips going down my leg. I would have to stop every few steps to ease the pain. With Dr. Novoseletsky help, I can now walk again, and I’m looking at birds, deer, and now my Husband can’t even keep up with me. My son is getting married next week, and he told me I will be able to dance with him. Thank you Dr. Novoseletsky Sincerely,

Joe

“Dr. Freedberg and his staff have gone beyond my expectations and I appreciate their friendliness and high quality of care they have given me through 2 surgeries and physical therapy. I recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone looking for a surgeon that is not only an expert in orthopedic surgery, but one that is also kind and caring, takes the time to answer your questions, and explains things in a way you can understand without having to have a medical degree. Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Suburban Orthopaedics for making this experience better than I ever expected!”

Sandy

I just wanted to let you know that my elbow is great! The shot in my elbow worked and I am ‘Pain free”. I am still doing the exercises but I just wanted to say Thank You! I was going to another doctor for 3 months and he didn’t help me at all; 1 visit from you and I feel great!…

John Brandes

If you ever want to feel comfortable at a Dr., this is the place! Dr. Freedberg is the best of the best! I have been under his care for 9 months now, and he actually is concerned about my health and making sure I make a full recovery. Please, if you have any doubts, DON’T….this is the Dr. to get you on the right path back to health. Also have to say that his staff is one of the best as well and will take care of you too! Thanks Dr. Freedberg for being so concerned!

Sharon

I just felt like I had to sit down and write this note to you to tell you what a wonderful doctor you are and what a wonderful assistant you have also. You two make me feel like I am not a bother, Like I feel I am so many times. What I am really in awe at is the nurse you have. No one can ever replace Frannie and I hope you know and appreciate that. I have been to many doctors with all my illnesses and have never felt so comfortable with ANY nurse, after only a few visits, like I feel with Frannie. She is a very compassionate and caring person in general and it is wonderful to be hugged by a nurse because you are in pain and scared to death. Frannie returned a call to me this morning that I already had taken care of, but as I was hanging up I found myself telling her that I love her and she responded back that she loves me. This I think is, WAY BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY. She is great and she is one that makes coming to your office a highlight of my day. THUMBS UP TO ALL OF YOU!!!!! Thanks Again”

Scott LiCausi

I am not on Facebook or twitter but I did want to send praise to my favorite orthopedic doctor and staff. Dr. Freedberg has taken care of all 6 members of my family over the last ten years. We have experienced nothing short of exceptional care. We have had a wide array of injuries with ankle sprains, broken bones, surgeries, car accident, etc. He has gotten us back to our regular schedule quickly but cautiously, always keeping in mind the best interest of his patients. He is extremely knowledgeable about sports injuries which have been the majority of our encounters. He has a great bedside manner demonstrating true concern for our injuries and level of pain. I can’t say enough about his staff. They are knowledgeable, funny and caring. One of his nurses even gave me her direct line after my car accident.
Thank you for all you do to keep our family healthy!

Jon

I want to thank you for all that you have done for me and my knee. When I first got hurt I felt that my football career was over. You have given me another chance to play the game the I love so much. There may be other doctors that perform that surgery, but I know God put you in charge of my surgery for a reason….”

Lisa F.

18 years ago Dr. Freedberg performed surgery on my elbow which I had broken into 8 pieces. He is an excellent surgeon with a friendly disposition. I could never thank him enough for what he did for me. I would recommend Dr. Howard Freedberg to other patients and have over the years.

Eric

“I worked as a driver on a garbage truck and one day I was stepping down out of the cab when the step I was using broke. I fell, pinning my leg, and twisting my knee which caused me the pain I was feeling. I went and saw Dr. Freedberg and after X-Rays and an MRI he told me that I had torn my meniscus in my knee. He recommended I had surgery and to my surprise it was a very easy surgery, so easy in fact I walked out of the hospital that day! The recovery was also easy although through my progress some pain still lingered. I was so impressed with Dr. Freedberg and his staff that I returned to him for another evaluation and we discovered arthritis in my knee so advanced that I am now in need of a knee replacement. Since this news I have worked my hardest and lost 60 pounds, I have gone back to school and will soon graduate with my Masters Degree and certificate to begin a new career in education. Everybody at Suburban Ortho really cares about their patients and what they need. They are helpful, kind, professional and do not waste your time! Dr. Freedberg is not only a great surgeon and doctor but a wonderful person. He really takes his time to tell you what he is going to do and talks very respectfully; he treats you like a person and not “just a patient” and I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks Dr. Freedberg!”

Kenneth Monestero

Dr. Freeburg rocks! He has taken care of my knee for the last year, as a surgeon, I would say he is one of best! He’s been very tough on me…but for good reasons! I believe he truly cares for his patients! I recommend him highly! Plus his staff is so caring! I would give this a 10 star rating if I could!

Robert G

I am so fortunate to have had Suburban Orthopaedics and Dr. Freedberg recommended to me by my family physician. My name is Robert and I worked as a letter carrier for the Post Office for 25 years. Over those 25 years walking many mail routes and going up and down thousands of stairs helped advance osteoarthritis in my right knee and right shoulder. I was walking with a terrible limp and tremendous pain. Dr. Freedberg recommended a total knee replacement and surgery to my shoulder. It’s been almost 2 years since having my right knee replaced and just over a year since my shoulder surgery. Long story short, I now walk without a limp and little if any pain. I can also lift my arm in a normal way without pain. There are some limitations. No more jogging and I won’t be able to pitch any more. I can now live a normal retired life. Thank you Dr. Freedberg and everybody at Suburban Orthopedics.

I definitely do not have either enough words or the right words to tell you how much I love Suburban Orthopedics. I have known Dr. Freedberg forever and he has become a very dear friend. Dr. McNally and all of the therapists have been supportive and loving through everything I have gone through. You cannot go wrong becoming involved with this group of people. The staff is warm and caring and can’t help enough. If you do have concerns the office staff is ready and willing to listen and act on your behalf. I do not think that I have ever encountered a more well-rounded community who is totally dedicated to your well-being and care, both physically and emotionally. Sometimes you have to wait awhile to see the docs, but when you do it is totally worth it. They make you feel as though you are the most important person and I have never felt as though they were too busy or did not care. I LOVE Suburban Orthopaedic – I think you can tell I am a little biased.

These Doctors are outstanding! They listen and really pay attention to you and your situation. They are positive, kind and caring. Their goal is to make you feel better. I really think highly of them because they take their time with you and don’t rush through like a lot of doctors. They are really wonderful! They are just great at what they do and they CARE. The staff is warm and friendly too which is very important as well.

Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Dr. McNally for your unconditional care!

I injured my left shoulder in a car accident in Oct. 2011. After months of physical therapy at a different therapeutic center, non-standard alternative medicine, unsuccessful arthroscopic surgery by another well-known orthopedic doctor and yet more therapy, I was just about at the end of my rope with chronic 24/7 pain and extremely limited ROM. A friend at work strongly recommended Dr. Freedberg. I made an appt. and was finally correctly diagnosed with Frozen Shoulder Syndrome that required surgical intervention. I had a very good surgical experience at St. Alexis’s new Day Surgery Center. Dr. Freedberg surgically released all the adhesions in my shoulder joint with impressively humane techniques. After only 2 months of intensive PT, I am thrilled to say I am almost 100%! If you’re in need of an excellent orthopedic surgeon, I heartily recommend Dr. Freedberg!

N.S. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg is exceptionally experienced and knowledgeable. His staff – especially his nurse Frances – brings compassion and deep knowledge of their roles to bear on their efforts.

I first began seeing Dr. Freedberg last summer when my rotator cuff began to shred. Dr. Freedberg took a cautious approach, trying everything he could before finally surgery was the only option. When the time for surgery arrived, he went in and did a thorough, detailed and skilled job, not only repairing multiple tears, but photographing the arthroscopy throughout so I could see what work was done and the damage beforehand.

Afterward, their staff at his physical therapy clinics is simply superb. From their thoughtful, well-designed layout, to their hands-on therapy, I knew I was on the road to recovery. Today I can say with certainty that, though pain accompanies all surgical procedures, I have no doubt whatever that I received exceptional care.

Sometimes you will wait beyond your scheduled appointment time. It’s because Dr. Freedberg takes time with his patients and when circumstances warrant, he will spend the extra time necessary in the course of treatment. Indeed, I was happy he wasn’t rushed during my surgery, which went far longer than planned due to the damage he discovered once inside.
Dr. Freedberg gives you the information straight. He’s direct, but not rude or insensitive. I can only think of two, very minor criticisms. One, I am a person who researches deeply any topic regarding my medical care, including perusing medical texts and scholarly articles. As a result I wish I had been given more from the doc himself in this area. For most, however, his explanations are more than effective.

Second, is the phone system could use some tweaks. Physical therapy hours run before and after doctor’s office hours. But to reach physical therapy, you are first routed though the main office line, which opens and closes at the standard 9-5(ish) time. Consequently, if you are late for PT or need to reschedule and you call outside Suburban Orthopedics’ normal hours, you cannot get through to the PT staff, who are there earlier and later, Mon-Fri.

These items are not enough to reduce at top rating. I’m deeply grateful and satisfied with my care and recovery through Dr. Freedberg and his excellent practice.

Dr. Freedberg was able to arthroscopically repair a complex tibial plateau fracture when two other orthopods recommended an open reconstruction. Since the surgery, I’ve been able to return to skiing and running. As a physician myself, I can appreciate the skill and experience that Dr. Freedberg brings to the table. His PA, Tony, is also excellent.

George B. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg treats each patient special and is a competent surgeon. His staff is friendly and caring. My wife and I have both had knee surgeries and our quality of life has dramatically improved. Thanks to Suburban Orthopedics!

Kimberly K. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg has helped our family for 20 years through surgeries, breaks, and other sports related injuries. I would trust no one else with our care. He is a miracle worker!

D. Nolan (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg is TERRIFIC!!! After several months of physical therapy and cortisone shots doing nothing for my elbow pain, Dr. F. came in, ordered an MRI, and recommended surgery. I have not had a bit of pain since. There was also an error made by the hospital and myself regarding eating before surgery. When I got to the hospital, they refused to do my surgery because of having eaten a small breakfast. They had not told me I couldn’t eat. Naturally I was upset. Dr. F. offered to return to the hospital AFTER seeing patients in his office and do my surgery at the end of his already busy day. Not may doctors would go above and beyond like that. I would HIGHLY recommend him.

Tom T. (via Yelp!)

I have used Dr. Freedberg and his services for over 20 years. His knowledge and professionalism is outstanding. I have had numerous injuries over the years and Dr. Freedberg’s treatment was successful in every case. I would recommend this business and Dr. Freedberg anytime of the day or night.

Dennis M. (via Yelp!)

I first came to Dr. Freedberg few years ago for a second opinion about my left TKR. He examined me, took an X-ray and said “it looks like your surgeon did a great job”. This really put my mind at ease.

Later I came back with terrible pain in my elbow which he fixed surgically. It was a tremendous success. Not only was I pain free but I got back to lifting weights (always carefully)…I’ve been doing 3 sets of 8 curls at 40 lbs. 3 times a week along with my regular regimen of pushups etc… ever since. No problems.

2 years ago I returned with bad hip pain…despite some misgivings I elected to have total hip replacement as per his recommendation. I finished the rehab a month ago. I am pain free and enjoying SLEEPING through the night.

Obviously Dr. Freedberg is a talented technical surgeon but that is not my reason for writing this review. It is his one on one no nonsense approach to medicine that has impressed me.

He listens, he is good humored and explains all options and procedures until the patient understands and is able to make their OWN decision. When making my decision to have the hip replaced it was also nice to know he had a personal perspective…he went through the same procedure himself.

I especially have appreciated his “no nonsense” approach to medicine.

“You want physical therapy or ant-inflammatory? Or both?”… “Let’s try a shot of cortisone” … “We have a great physical therapy department here… oh that’s not convenient? Where do YOU want to go?”… ”Dennis that shoulder may have an impingement but let’s try some PT first. If it’s still giving you trouble we’ll do an MRI” “I like the way your hip looks on the x-ray ; you don’t have to come back for nine months BUT if you ever have any type of orthopedic problem before that give me a call.”

All doctor offices get busy and all doctors are rushed at times. It’s no different at Suburban Orthopedic. They are helping a lot of PEOPLE.
But I’ve been to this facility enough to know that the quality, respect and care that I am looking for is always there.

I highly recommend Suburban Orthopedics.

Joy D. (via Yelp!)

I saw Dr. Freedberg after I had surgery with another doctor for a full tear rotator cuff injury and seven months of physical therapy. I did not regain my full ROM and had pain, especially while sleeping on the affected shoulder. I decided to see Dr. Freedberg to see if there was something he could do. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He knew immediately that I had developed a frozen shoulder and would benefit from a minor procedure to manipulate the shoulder and break up the scar tissue that had formed since the previous surgery. Best decision I ever made. The procedure was fairly easy and recovery was great. With physical therapy, I was achieving ROM that I hadn’t even gotten close to before. I am now relatively pain free and have almost full ROM. Dr. Freedberg was great. He was very straightforward and took time to listen to any of my concerns and answer any questions. You’ll be happy you choose Dr. Freedberg

Camille M. (via Yelp!)

I have worked with Dr. Freedberg and Dr. Bartkowiak and they have always addressed my needs quickly and accurately. On 12/03/2013 I came in with extreme pain in my shoulder and down my arm. Once again, Dr. Bartkowiak response to my pain was spot on. Within 24 hours of my treatment I am no longer in pain and have full range of motion in my arm again. I could barely lift it at my appointment!

I highly recommend Suburban Orthopedics!!

Karen M. (via Yelp!)

Dr. Freedberg is a fantastic physician. His entire staff, administrative, physical therapy, nurses, you name it are wonderful, patient, helpful, pleasant people. You cannot get better help than Dr. Freedberg. Love them all!

Jason B. (via Yelp!)

I hurt myself playing baseball and ended up completely tearing my ACL and also my meniscus… I was very scared and unsure about my path to recovery. I got referred to Suburban Orthopedic by a teammate who also was helped by Dr. Freedberg… Dr. Freedberg is the best orthopedic surgeon out there, and he and his staff as well as the in house MRI and Physical Therapy more than delivered and made my own personal nightmare easier to handle. I would recommend him and Suburban Orthopedic to anyone.

Terri P. (via Yelp!)

This practice is the best. Everyone is friendly and it makes the visits more enjoyable. Dr. Freedberg is the best. I appreciate the time he takes with me to explain what my issue is and what needs to be done to correct it.

Lynn K. (via Yelp!)

About 11 years ago my mom had a successful full knee replacement by Dr. Howard Freedberg. Then my dad needed a complete hip replacement and had it done by Dr. Howard Freedberg and has not had any trouble with it at all. Then 8 years ago I needed a total hip replacement and because my mom’s replacement and my dad’s replacement were so successful I went to Dr. Howard Freedberg and I have had absolutely no complications or problems with my new hip. Dr. Freedberg is an excellent doctor. He is wonderful to talk to and will listen to your every concern. Yesterday, April 14th, I had my eight year checkup x-rays and everything is great. Thank you Dr. Freedberg you are the best.

Beth G. (via Yelp!)

I recently had my left knee replaced by Dr. Freedberg and I’m getting ready to do the right knee. Great doctor and I had no problems with the surgery. The office gals are the best out there. Fran took my staples out and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Freedberg is a no nonsense guy but he gets the job done right. Best thing I ever did for my knees. Would recommend this doctor to anyone who needs help with any ortho need.

Jacque O’Neill

I have been a patient of Suburban Orthopedics for over 2 years. The staff from the receptionist to the dr. is all so friendly and caring. The office hours for dr. visits, MRI’s, and physical therapy are always scheduled for convenient hours they try to accommodate everyone’s schedule. I also like that they have multiple locations so wherever you live there is an office conveniently located. My daughter who is 8 years old recently broke her elbow and I took her to the Bartlett office and she was well taken care of. Thank you for all your great services keeps up the good work.

Barry

I was a bit nervous when I began looking for an orthopedic surgeon to help me with my shoulder issues. I was suffering from the lingering effects of a 2010 car accident and I didn’t want to simply “get rid of pain”. I wanted to get back to where I was…able to do what I wanted athletically and in daily living. The #1 thing that jumped out at me from the information I gathered on the Web was Dr. Freedberg’s extensive background in athletic injuries. I’ve had a very good experience with the entire Suburban Orthopaedics team, including the PT guys. I could have done PT anywhere with Dr. Freedberg’s blessing. But when I checked out the state-of-the-art PT facility in Bartlett and watched people doing very interesting exercises, I felt that driving the extra 20 miles to Bartlett would improve my chances of a full recovery. I had previously tried another PT group and the results were so-so (old equipment, not-so-interesting exercises). It was great having a fully licensed therapist stand by my side during all of my exercises. At this time I feel great and expect to be back to 100% very soon.

Al Mandel

Best ortho surgeon in the biz is Dr. Freedberg. Has done 4 surgeries on me and he is the best. So are his nurses Fran and Dale. The physical therapy is the best totally and great physical therapists. Would not go anywhere else in the world!! They treat you like family and Dr. Freedberg has even operated on sports stars like Jeremy Roenick! Believe me if you want the best and have tried the rest go to Freedberg and the staff at Suburban Also Dr. Tony and Rita are great too

John Tornabene

To Dr. Freiberg and all the people associated with Suburban Orthopaedics, I would like to sincerely thank you for the wonderful and successful surgeries on both of my shoulders. The kind and thoughtful care that I received before, during and after my surgeries is a testament to the highest quality and expertise of you and your staff of trained professionals. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs any orthopaedic procedures, to contact you. Again, THANK YOU! P.S. Tell the people in therapy that I am recommending a steam room.

James Vande Vusse

I developed a relationship with Dr. Freedberg when he had taken care of my son when he broke his thumb from playing football. When I met with him over my shoulder issues, I was very confident in his recommendations and surgical procedures. I was scheduled for my procedure last spring when a serious health issue came up with me, when I discussed this with Dr. Freedberg, he was very concerned with my health and recommended putting of my surgery on my shoulder until my other issue was taken care of. It was a rough time for me and Dr. Freedberg took the time to talk to me, how cool is that. I had my shoulder surgery this past December and I’m doing great and expecting a full recovery. Dr. Freedberg is a great doctor and I recommend him to everyone.

Kurt Wait

5 stars! I am currently in my fourth set of procedures. I am very happy with the care, treatment, and concern for my health. They are very personable, and considerate. I would not keep going back if this were not the case.

Paul G. Gay

Dr. Freedberg rocks! He is knowledgeable, personable and an awesome surgeon. He’s repaired my shoulder, biceps and elbow over the past ten years and I have recommended him to several others because of his professionalism and ability to improve the quality of life. Dr. Freedberg gets it done!!!

Joe Amato

Dr. Freedberg and his staff have gone beyond my expectations and I appreciate their friendliness and high quality of care they have given me through 2 surgeries and physical therapy. I recommend Dr. Freedberg to anyone looking for a surgeon that is not only an expert in orthopedic surgery, but one that is also kind and caring, takes the time to answer your questions, and explains things in a way you can understand without having to have a medical degree. Thank you Dr. Freedberg and Suburban Orthopaedics for making this experience better than I ever expected!

Ken Malinowski

Dr. Freedberg and his AMAZING staff has made me feel so comfortable, I had a previous Doctor and just always felt rushed and never felt like I was a priority at their office. Having researched Dr. Freedberg and finally taking the big step to switching doctors during an injury was the best thing I have done. They are very professional and put the patient FIRST! He has always answered all questions and made me really understand what’s going on with my condition. I would recommend this doctor and staff to anyone! If you’re looking for a down to earth guy with a personality and a great background, he’s your guy!!

Mitch Lopac

I am currently seeing Dr. Freedberg as well as the PT clinic for a shoulder injury and chronic knee pain. My experience has been nothing but first rate! Dr. F is definitive in both diagnosis and treatment, and has been spot-on in both cases. I would recommend anyone with ortho issues to see him! The PT clinic managed by Ryan has improved my torn rotator cuff mobility back to the point of usefulness with much improved range of motion, thus avoiding surgery. The entire staff of therapists is outstanding, and, regardless of who is assigned to me that day, no one misses a beat- Additionally, the office personnel is efficient, friendly and very competent in addressing my questions and issues. An A+ medical facility!

Armando Terrazas

I’ve been seeing Dr. Freedberg since September of 2010 due to some back injuries. Since the first day I knew I came to the right place. Dr. Freedberg has been very understanding & patient with me. He knows the pain you go through and knows it is quite difficult to deal with. He’s diagnosed my pain & has treated my back to the fullest that it can. The staff in their office is always courteous & pleasant as well, which helps ease the sum of the stress & pain that you’re dealing with. Dr. Freedberg is such an amazing & helpful human being that I have complete trust in him. I give this office & physician two thumbs up & would suggest to anyone who is in need of an ortho. To go there!

Yours,

Clarita Cruz

Hello, I had been a patient of Dr. Howard Freedberg for the last two years. I have severe osteoarthritis of both knees. Due to my other medical conditions, surgery is not a good option. Dr. Freedberg has been injecting Supratz into my knees via a technique which the injection is guided by ultrasound. This has provided me with a tremendous amount of relief and has been very successful for me. I would recommend Dr. Howard Freedberg to other patients.

Sincerely,

Rich B

Dr. Freedberg and the whole staff at suburban Orthopaedics are the best. They do it right the first time.

Curtis Rice

Hello my name is Curtis Rice. I had a total knee replacement. The care I received from Dr. Freedberg was superb, he has all of the knowledge to make you feel comfortable, his staff provides you with a very friendly environment, Dr. Tony, Fran, Rita, the Therapist, and so on.

Thank You so much,

Rina Foster

I have been one of Dr. Freedberg’s patients for many years now. Unfortunately for me being a former athlete, I have had to see an Orthopedic Doctor over the years from shoulder issues to my knees. Dr. Freedberg and his staff (Tony, Rita, Fran, and Dale etc.) are all very warm, kind, caring and sincere. Howard is the one Doctor I trust to give me personal Care, A good Assessment of my injury and a positive recovery plan to get me back out to lead a normal life. I have recommended many of my friends and my co-workers to see him. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you Howard for all you have done!

Sincerely,

Kristin Reid

Dr. Freedberg ROCKS! He has treated my knee for the past year now, as a surgeon a four or five star rating does him no justice! He’s tough on me…but for good reasons, I believe he truly cares for his patients! Plus his staff is terrific! So caring!

Vicki G.

Dr. Freedberg was the first Doctor able to properly diagnose and treat my condition. He is knowledgeable and really explains everything to you so that you are able to understand. He and his staff are professional, courteous, compassionate and prompt. I would highly recommend Suburban Orthopaedics. Thank you so much Dr. Freedberg

Sincerely,

Kristin Starbuck

Dr. Freeburg rocks! He has taken care of my knee for the last year, as a surgeon, I would say he is one of best! He’s been very tough on me…but for good reasons! I believe he truly cares for his patients! I recommend him highly! Plus his staff is so caring! I would give this a 10 star rating if I could!

Kenneth Monestero

18 years ago Dr. Freedberg performed surgery on my elbow which I had broken into 8 pieces. He is an excellent surgeon with a friendly disposition. I could never thank him enough for what he did for me. I would recommend Dr. Howard Freedberg to other patients and have over the years.

Lisa F.

I am not on Facebook or twitter but I did want to send praise to my favorite orthopedic doctor and staff. Dr. Freedberg has taken care of all 6 members of my family over the last ten years. We have experienced nothing short of exceptional care. We have had a wide array of injuries with ankle sprains, broken bones, surgeries, car accident, etc. He has gotten us back to our regular schedule quickly but cautiously, always keeping in mind the best interest of his patients. He is extremely knowledgeable about sports injuries which have been the majority of our encounters. He has a great bedside manner demonstrating true concern for our injuries and level of pain. I can’t say enough about his staff. They are knowledgeable, funny and caring. One of his nurses even gave me her direct line after my car accident.
Thank you for all you do to keep our family healthy!

Scott LiCausi

If you ever want to feel comfortable at a Dr., this is the place! Dr. Freedberg is the best of the best! I have been under his care for 9 months now, and he actually is concerned about my health and making sure I make a full recovery. Please, if you have any doubts, DON’T….this is the Dr. to get you on the right path back to health. Also have to say that his staff is one of the best as well and will take care of you too! Thanks Dr. Freedberg for being so concerned!

John Brandes

The problem is where to start. I have had a couple of bad injuries. The first one was my lower back. My primary Doc. sent me to Suburban Ortho. I saw Dr. McNally. We tried therapy, injections with no luck. We decided on surgery. The time he took to explain things was awesome. It is not common these days to have a Dr. spend so much time with their Patients. The surgery was performed; the aftercare was second to none. Five months after I returned to work I fell off a ladder breaking my heel. (Ouch) I did not pass go and went straight to Suburban Ortho. I met with Dr. Freedberg. The only option was surgery. Surgery went well. The aftercare was again great. But as my luck would have it I had a second surgery that I am still recovering from. The compassion and knowledge of Dr. Freedberg is superior. The Staff is so caring. I need to mention Physical therapy, x-ray and MRI. Everyone is great. A true one stop shop and I can’t ask for anything better. I tell everyone how great Suburban Ortho is and always recommend them.

Kim F. Rn

Dr. Freedberg performed a tendon repair on my ankle after a work injury. Dr. was very thorough and the repair was a success. Dr. Freedberg made sure that I was comfortable and alleviated any worries or fears I had. He is a very busy MD and he still makes the time for each patient, which makes you feel as though you are their only patient. The doctor was late for surgery that day, as he had an emergency case. They made sure (as I was in the hospital waiting) that I was updated each step of the way. Afterward, I attended PT and the therapists were excellent and very committed to my care. They were very convenient with their hours and scheduling. I am not only a patient, but also an RN and have seen many, many doctors in my career and I can truly testify that Dr. Freedberg is top-notch. His staff is very friendly and accommodating. The entire office process is streamlined: from your initial convenient appt. to the lush office waiting area. Once you are in the room, they quickly send you for x-ray and their Rn does the initial history and physical. Usually you will then see Tony B. PA and he will exam you and prepare for Dr. Freedberg. Doctor will examine you and if any additional testing is required, they have an MRI right in his office. They really try to minimize time spent in the office. I was very impressed with the whole process. Tony B., Doctor Freedberg’s PA, is outstanding. He is gentle and thorough and very kind. Following surgery, I had additional pain and he and the entire office was so easy to get a hold of (even though it was evening). In this day and age, when there are so many doctors to choose from, I can really testify that this is the place to go!

Trinidad

I would like to thank Suburban Orthopaedics for a great treatment, the best dr. `s in town and friends… thank you again for all your help when I need it the help…

Dale Spenner

Dr. Howard Freedberg performed two total hip replacements for me this year. The right one on January 23rd and the left one on June 1st. Both operations were flawless with no complications. I am very happy with the results. I was able to walk without crutch or cane after only two weeks on the second hip. Two years prior Dr. Freedberg did a major rotator cuff repair on my right shoulder, again, flawless. This is a very professional and sophisticated orthopedic practice. I recommend it highly to anyone considering hip or shoulder surgery.

Russell Streeter

I want to give kudos to Suburban Orthopaedics for the treatment I received after a recent car accident which required surgery. Dr. Freedberg performed the surgery and after subsequent therapy, I’m fully recovered and very satisfied with Suburban Orthopaedics.

Wayne Domke

I want to say that my experiences with knee replacement with Doctor Howard Freedberg have been wonderful and he is a blessing to all who are under his care. He is all business and I feel safe a secure knowing he has the training and expertise to improve my health and overall quality of life.

Mike Reder

If you are someone considering a total knee replacement, look no further than Suburban Orthopaedics. Dr. Howard Freedberg and his dedicated staff are outstanding. They are a caring and understanding group of individuals, headed by a brilliant doctor that is all business, but also compassionate to your needs for a better quality of life. He possesses in his hands a gift from God to perform your surgery and get you back on track with your life pain-free!
