You and your child deserve better, Dr. Friesema is possibly the least professional doctor I have ever met. This is based on several visits. She is a gossip and seems to think that she knows best about raising others children. She should be at home raising her small children not coming to work telling others how to raise their children. If you are looking for a good doctor, look elsewhere.

Tammy Casiday in Tacoma, WA – Nov 02, 2017
Dr. Freisema is my daughter's pediatrician. She is the nicest doctor. She is an outstanding pediatrician. She is the only doctor that I will ever take my daughter to. My daughter absolutely lives her. She is very concerned about her patients health. She explains everything to my daughter and I. I would highly recommend her.
