Deborah Freehling, MD

Dr. Freehling trained at Harvard's Mass, Eye and Ear Infirmary and has treated and helped thousands of patients. She has been in private practice for over 15 years.

The breath and depth of her practice includes children as well as adults of all ages. She excels in the medical and surgical management of most problems of the ears, nose, sinuses, throat, salivary glands and sleep disorders. Often patients are referred for revision of their unsuccessful surgeries with excellent results.

Because the goal is to improve patients health and she is very successful at this, her office always welcomes new patients.

With a subspecialty in allergy she is often able to help patients without surgery.

Dr. Freehling's office staff (most over 10 years) is a stable addition to great patient care. Finally, because of her interest in anti-aging, medical/surgical treatment is offered to this end.
