    Dr. Fred is a caring and knowledgeable physician and his staff is great also. I moved out of the area and was going to another physician who recommended I go to a specialist. I told this Physician I would go see Dr. Fred, and this physician was familiar with him, and said it was a good choice. Dr Fred has corrected my problem in just a few visits Dr. Fred has a lot of patients and can take a little time to get in to see him, but worth the wait!
