Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.

Biography

Dr. Freeman is proud to see patients at the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center (CDRC), and is the program director of the IDD Behavioral Pediatrics Treatment Program.

Dr. Freeman specializes in behavioral health care of kids, working with youth with and without special health care needs. Specifically, he directs the Behavioral Pediatrics Treatment Program, which focuses on toileting problems (for example, bed wetting, soiling, and toilet training), tic and habit problems (like hair pulling, skin picking) and behavior problems in young children (such as tantrums, noncompliance, bedtime and sleep issues). He also provides care to children with more complex behavioral challenges, including severe defiance/noncompliance, aggression, self-injury, anxiety, and other similar difficulties. Emphasis is on practical, goal-oriented approaches designed to address presenting problems.

In his spare time, Dr. Freeman enjoys cycling, hiking, and spending time outdoors with friends, family, and his dogs.
