What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Frerker, MD

I have been trying to find a solid general practitioner for years since moving to Colorado, and finally met with Dr. Frerker. So many other doctors make you feel like a burden, make you wait long, and rush the appointment. Dr. Frerker gave great advice, asked questions, and seems to genuinely care. His staff is also great and makes you feel very comfortable. I won’t be going anywhere!

We love this doctor. He has always been fair and honest, compassionate and thorough. Wait times have never been exceedingly long and they have always gotten us an appointment within a day or so. Lawrence has never given us anything less than his undivided attention, and he is an excellent physician. We were so sad to lose him as our physician when we moved away, but know that he will always remain our #1 choice no matter the difference. You will not find a better doctor anywhere.

Thoroughly pleased with Dr. Frerker. Very knowledgeable, took the time to comprehensively explore/address my medical needs, kind with a great sense of humor, straightforward with valuable insights. I feel a great sense of relief to find a doctor who I can trust and who makes me laugh at the same time. Staff was friendly, timely and competent. I feel very lucky, highly recommend.

Dr. Frerker is a caring, thorough doctor. I believe a doctor should not just treat your condition with the utmost competancy but leave you feeling uplifted after a visit, and Dr. Frerker does just that.

Fantastic diagnostician. Very thorough, timely, and generally cares about his patients. He is worth the 45 minute drive to get to his office despite numerous practitioners near my house. It's hard to find a family physician That will spend time with you.

One of the best, no make that the best docs I have ever had. Takes the time to talk to you. Not just in, do some tests give the chart a look see and out the door.

Have been going to Dr. Frerker for years but his recent care has been substandard to say the least. His care and medical knowledge for his patients does not meet the minimum when compared to other doctors. Would not recommend to anyone.
