the science of medicine and
the art of healing.
John Freeman, M.D. is Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology.
My maternal grandmother, Rachel Hoskins, was my closest and dearest grandparent. She was very active in my young life and always had a dream of working in the health professions. She realized that dream late in life when she went back to school to obtain her nursing degree. I remember that it was with great joy she related her stories of her healthcare experiences. It was then, during my sophomore year of high school, that I decided to become a physician.
I had originally planned to become a plastic surgeon. I was encouraged in this direction because of my surgical skills and because I was artistic. I initially started a general surgery residency with that in mind. After three years, I discovered this was not a field I was interested in pursuing and left my residency. I worked as an emergency room physician and as a general practitioner for about two years. My best friend’s wife became the nursing director of a small ambulatory clinic for women’s healthcare near the University of Florida. She asked me to become a part-time medical director, which evolved into a full-time job. I had found the perfect specialty for me. I returned to a residency at the Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. and completed my training in obstetrics and gynecology.
This career offers the opportunity for medical care, surgical care and preventive care. It also offers that rare opportunity to take care of many members of the same family, as well as groups of friends. In obstetrics and gynecology, unlike any other specialty, we become involved in not just the patient’s healthcare but in their family and personal life. Although I truly enjoy the strong surgical component of my practice, my greatest joy is delivering a baby. After delivering near 4,000 babies, I am still as awe-inspired by childbirth, as I was the day I started training. It is a miraculous event and the most important event in a couple’s life. It is my honor to be able to be present and participate in such an important part of their life. I take great pride in the children I deliver, and I always feel somehow they are a little bit mine.
My mother is alive and well and resides in Fort Worth. She is an active part of my life and my best personal and financial advisor. My sister, a Pastor in Granbury, Texas and her husband have always been primary emotional and spiritual supporters. Since I came to the Lord late in life, their experience and expertise have been essential in my spiritual growth. I have two wonderful nieces, one a nurse and one a teacher, who both live in Houston, Texas. Both are married, both are parents, and both are dear to me. Last, but most important to me is my daughter, Rachel. As does every parent, I think my daughter is wonderful and unique – but in this case it just happens to be true! She is beautiful and intelligent with an outgoing personality. She is also blessed with an artistic flair which she hopes to use in fashion design. I dread the day when I become "Father" rather than "Daddy".
I was born in Memphis, Tennessee, but moved to Fort Worth Texas at age 12. I attended McClean Jr. High and Paschal High School, but later transferred to Country Day School and completed my high school education there. Most of my family, and many old friends, were in Fort Worth, so it was an easy choice to move here at the completion of my medical training.
In my life, God comes first, family comes second and my profession comes third. I feel this makes me a better physician. My profession is more than a job; it is a God-given mission for which I have dedicated my life. It is only through His blessings that I have been given the opportunity to spend my life doing something I love so much. My hobbies include collecting trinket boxes and fossils. I am an avid reader and often am in the process of reading two or three books at a time. I am often asked what I like to read and the answer is simple "everything and anything".
