My son has severe classic autism and Crohn's disease. He is not the easiest patient to treat, but Dr. Fredrickson can handle this. There is a real problem with people who have severe disabilities obtaining care in the community. We were lucky to find Dr. Fredrickson.

This doctor is neglectful. I waited a long time in the waiting room all to see him for a few minutes. He barely listened to me and pretty much dismissed me. He did order a test for me to get done and I’ve called him multiple times to get my results and he never got back to me. I only switched doctors because I moved and I plan on going back to my old doctor, even though it will be an hour drive.

This guy closed his Norfolk office without notice and left me hanging. Would not trust my dog with this guy. Plus he was incapable of helping me.

Really takes the time to listen to all your symptoms, discuss testing and possible diagnosis, and explains everything. He is excellent!
