The best part about my practice is collaborating with health care providers to navigate the ever-changing regulatory landscape, to find effective and efficient solutions to identified problems, and most importantly to proactively identify issues before they become future problems.
Rachel Freeman focuses her practice on advising healthcare providers on operational, transactional and compliance matters including drafting a variety of healthcare contracts and documents.
