December 2, 2019 7:53 AM

My primary care physician recommended that I have a cardio evaluation, and I am so glad I chose Dr. Freihage to be the provider for that evaluation!within the first five minutes of the initial meeting I was feeling so comfortable and at ease with Dr. Freihage. There was a calm, a genuine caring, and a sense of humor that put me at ease. And there was an immediate plan for evaluation. After the ordered tests and follow up meeting, I received feedback on the results, and a very honest, understandable evaluation of what was going on, and what to be aware of in the future. I'm thinking I probably will not have any reasons to visit a cardiologist again, but if I do, I certainly will choose Dr. Freihage bEXCELLENT!

I would absolutely recommend him . also his bed side manner is a 10. His nurse that came in first was amazing, she had personality plus. Thank you Advocate for providing us with exceptional Doctors and staff.
