Biography

Dr. Freeman is proud to see patients at the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center (CDRC). 

Dr. Freeman specializes in behavioral health care of children with a variety of child rearing challenges. He works with a full range of issues displayed by children with and without special health care needs. Specifically, he conducts the Behavioral Pediatrics Treatment Services, which focuses on common child rearing challenges (e.g., toilet training, tantrums, noncompliance, bedtime and sleep issues), behaviorally-based conditions that have a biological component (e.g., bedwetting), biologically-based conditions that have a behavioral component (e.g., soiling, tics), and medication/medical regimen adherence. He also provides care to children with more complex behavioral challenges, including oppositionality/defiance, severe noncompliance, aggression, self-injury, and other similar difficulties. Emphasis is on practical, goal-oriented approaches designed to address presenting problems.

 

In his spare time, Dr. Freeman enjoys cycling, completing rides with names like the “Torture 10,000” and “the Death Ride”; hiking; and spending time with dog, Sampson.
