Dr Fredi, by the grace of God, literally saved my 96 year old father’s life. He has an unusual genuine care and concern for his patients as though they are his very own family members. His hands, mind, and heart are anointed by God. I am eternally grateful to him!

Dr. Fredi is an outstanding doctor and he truly cares about his patients! I had a heart attack at 40 years old and Dr. Fredi saved my life. He explained that I had a SCAD ( non-atherosclerotic heart attack) which is very rare and he took a personal interest in my case. He has managed my care for over 10 years. Not only am I healthy, but Dr. Fredi gave me the confidence to live my life. I will forever be grateful to him. Shreveport you are lucky to have such a fine doctor!!!

I had the opportunity to be recommended to Dr.Fredi about 20 years ago by a couple of friends who worked in surgery and knew about his abilities has a CV doctor. Over the years he was the best doctor I feel I have ever been to. I am so sorry that he has left the Nashville area for a new position. When I needed stents he was there at the right time and when I needed an aortic valve,he was there. He put the valve in one day and I was home the next day having lunch .I already miss him.

Dr Fredi was my Cardiologist for 14 or 15 years. I was referred to him by one of his Nurses. I couldn't have found a better Doctor. I have had 5 Bypasses, a Stint and a Kidney Transplant. I will miss him in Middle Tennessee and wish him the Best in his new Endevor in Shreveport. If you have him for your Doctor, you have the Best!

I had to have an emergency heart procedure at Vanderbilt Hospital. I was lucky enough to get Dr. Fredi who was in the operating room that day.

Dr. Fredi took his limited time to call me himself and explain my diagnosis. He performed a flawless surgery and followed up with so much care and concern. He did not just patch up my heart he made sure I was completely recovering and thriving. During a very scary time, Dr. Fredi made it all tolerable. I am so thankful for his work, his knowledge, his kindness, and his really bad drawings (that helped me understand my situation in a "real life" way). I whole heartedly recommend him.

He took his time explaining everything to my husband and me and never tried to rush out even though his schedule was hectic. Office visits were the same. Took his time and patiently answered my questions and honestly listened to what I had to say.
