Tyler Freeman, MD, graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in 2016 and is a board certified family physician with a focus on Women’s Health.
“I have always been interested in obstetrics and that interest grew throughout my training in medical school and residency. My siblings and I were all born at Carl Albert, and I knew I wanted to help improve the availability of services for our indigenous women here in Oklahoma City. Women’s health, rights and other issues are important to me and my practice, and Oklahoma City Indian Clinic allows me to improve those standards while providing the best medical care available.”
