    Every time I go to Dr. Fredericks, she is very concerned with whatever is going on. I have been seeing her for about two years and have always had a good experience. She listens to what you have to say and she doesn't make you feel stupid like some Dr's do when you ask questions. I would recommend her to anyone.

    My husband has a TBI and suffers from Seizures due to it. Dr. Fredericks was our knight in shinning Armour when she and Allen Allen walked in our lives that had been in turmoil from the injury became more clear to us. She always explains everything in detail they both answer any questions that I have concerning my husband and are always so encouraging to us when we are in her office. We love Dr. Fredericks and her team. Rescheduling happens but that is life. She is human just like us. :)

    Dr Fredericks helped me get approved by my private work long term disability and SS disability. She offered without being asked to help. She filled out mountains of paperwork during the trying process. She wrote a letter the SS without being asked. She always listens and shows genuine concern for my problems. She is highly competent. I would readily recommend her.

    Best Dr in my book. Sure I've had to wait a long time in waiting room several times, but if I were the one needing her due to emergency , I would want her there with me. She saved my life by finding my problem when others couldn't and it is something not even in her field. If you are lucky enough to get her, DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT LOSE HER!

    Not one of the best neurologists in my opinion! She has rescheduled 85% of my initial appointments, ones in which I had already taken off work for. Secondly she doesn't go in detail with you on your MRI. I have had neurologists sit down and show images doing my appointments. Sadly they are no longer practicing in Jackson. I spend triple the time waiting then I do in my appointment. Lastly her nurses are rude and doesn't seem to care about the patients health. Plus she charges to do PA's!

    Dr. Fredericks is good but I don't know if she's worth having your appointment rescheduled every time you have one. Sometimes they are rescheduled for the same week but other times they are rescheduled for two or more months later not knowing if you are having new symptoms. When you call the office, most of the time no one will answer so you have to leave a voicemail and hope you get a call back from her nurse, but my experience is you usually don't get a call back.
