I believe that it’s important to remember that patients are individuals. We can be most successful if the patient and his or her physician work as a team, along with other staff and family members. We work together to understand the medical issues facing the patient and what options are available to help treat or control symptoms.

I’m a neuromuscular disease specialist. I became interested in these disorders during my training because I have a background in immunology. Many nerve and muscle diseases are caused by immune system dysfunction. In the past 25 years, we’ve made great strides in treating many immune-mediated muscle and nerve diseases.

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has evolved into one of the great tertiary (specialty) care centers in the United States. It’s exciting to be a part of this transformation and to know that it will continue to grow long after I retire from practicing medicine.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/28/17, Dr. Freimer has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
