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."

My wife and I have been seeing Dr Frederiks for several years, and could not be more pleased. She is not only extremely knowledgeable, but is always willing to spend whatever length of time is required to discuss any problems we may have. We need more like her.
