AMAZING DOCTOR! The Only doctor who has EVER done a full examination on me and truly wanted to help and listened. He did not just ignore me because of my age. I HIGHLY recommend him as I've Never recommended a dr. Before in my life. If you want someone who truly cares and wants to actually help you this is the dr to see and place to go. Words can't not express how glad I am to have found him and staff. After 1 visit procedure was scheduled. He really wants to help you live as pain free as poss.

I work in healthcare and I am very skeptical about pain management based on what I have seen and heard. I did a LOT of research and Dr. Fred was recommended. Long story short, he was awesome, very knowledgeable and I was very impressed which doesn't happen often. I have a very abnormal spine, he got in both levels with no problem and I have had no pain so far.
