I broke my tibia. My first Dr did a repair but it would't heal.  He referred me to Dr Fredericks. Dr Fredericks did a super job.  I feel he took care of me like he would a family member. He did 7 hours  of surgery. He was concerned for me before, during and after surgery. When I didn't follow his directions he let me know with a firm, gentle and concerned talk.  It made me want to comply. After 11 months in a wheelchair I can walk again. I would recommend Dr Fredericks with no hesitations

Dr. Fredericks impressed me immediately with his knowledge of my injury and his ability to get me healed up, with the caveat that I work hard to help the process along. Every other department from Radiology to anesthesiology and nursing commented on what a good surgeon he was, if a bit demanding. Goes with the territory and I felt like his "demanding" meant he expected to get the best treatment he could for his patients.

I had a fall in Jan 2015 and had hardware installed to aid the bone in healing. It was extremely painful all the time and it made a scraping noise every time I rose from a chair to a standing position. Dr. Fredericks replaced the hardware in the femur bone. After 16 months and the night of the surgery, the pain was gone and the noise stopped. I would recommend Dr. Fredericks to any one who needs trauma surgery.

Dr. Fredericks was very professional and personable. He listened to all questions and gave you time to explain what questions you had. He did not rush you through which is unusual in this day and age. I would diffidently recommend him to anyone that need an orthopedic surgery.

Our daughter was in a serious auto accident that landed her in the ER and Dr Peter Fredericks was the Orthopedic Surgeon on duty that morning. Our daughter received wonderful care and we, her parents, received timely, informative updates, answers to our questions and peace of mind that she was getting the best treatment. His attention to detail, care and follow up impressed us the most and he communicated with us frequently during the whole process. We are so thankful he was her Dr & surgeon

DR. Fredericks was the best thing to happen to me after my accident. His bedside manner and overall concern for my well being are not seen in many physicians today. He took the time to talk to me and understand my circumstances. He is very easy to talk with and takes the time to explain things to you in a manner that makes sense. I broke my arm and sacrum six weeks ago he plated my arm so I could be mobile enough to go home and I just started walking yesterday. Thanks DR Fredericks

Dr Fredericks is very down to earth. He talks to you like a person. He immediately made me feel like I could trust him 100%. He has already done one surgery on me, and will be doing a below the knee amputation on me this week. He is a very caring doctor. I immediately on meeting him, liked him immensely. I would definitely recommend Doctor Fredericks to anyone that wants a truly caring doctor. Brian Harmon
