Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Frederiks ""Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

What is best for the patient medically is my top priority. I am honest with my patients about what is medically appropriate. Sometimes it may be something a patient does not want to hear, but it is only with their best interest in mind. I take pride in the success of my patients, whether it is good control of a condition, or the birth of a new grandchild! I enjoy getting to know my patients.

I do my best to keep timely appointments, but there are days I will run behind. I hope all of my patients understand that I take as much time as needed for the individual care of each patient."
