In no instance shall a user attempt to diagnose a medical condition or determine appropriate treatment based on the limited information contained in this Site.

Limitations of content: Site content is general in nature and not intended or sufficient to dictate what constitutes reasonable, appropriate, or best care in a given situation.

Other physicians may have differing opinions or use other methods of care that when properly applied achieve similar results. While various textbooks and professional journals have been and are consulted in preparing and updating the content of this Site, no one source or one set of sources are relied upon as definitive.

Dr. Freeman does not guarantee or warrant the Site will be error-free or omission-free.
