Not happy with my experience. Didn't feel like he cared, even when I had a bad outcome. Wish I would have chosen a different doctor...

Dr. Frederick took the time to answer all my questions and explained everything very clearly. He is personable and helped make me feel comfortable and confident about my ACL reconstruction.

Dr. Frederick is superb. Throughout the entire period, from pre-op through my last visit at 8 months post-surgery, he has taken the time to be clear about every aspect of the surgery and the post-op recovery. Moreover, he has been an inspiration - always giving me encouragement and always giving me great feedback on progress. I have already passed his name along to trainers at the Sporting Club as a doctor to work with if they have the opportunity. He will be my go to doctor in the future.

Dr. Frederick is the only doctor I will see. He is knowledgeable, professional, kind. He is intimately familiar with the knee & injections given by him are pain free, whereas another doc gave me a cortisone injection that was extremely painful. As Dr. Frederick explained, it was not properly targeted into the joint space! He takes the time to answer your questions & propose treatment options. I've seen other docs, and he is my favorite. The wait time can be excessive, but he is worth it!

It is more than I can say in word about Dr.Frederick. Without Dr. Frederick I have not been able to get through such large procedure and tough surgical course, another surgery and rehab, and coming this far now.. Ever since I first met Dr. Frederick I have always 120% trust with him!! It has been many months but he is still warm and he is always there for me..

We have had the best of care with Dr. Frederick and are so pleased with his level of expertise and care. My 15 year old daughter had ACL reconstruction surgery a few months ago and has progressed so well in her recuperation following surgery. He is kind and caring and always takes the time to address all our needs and questions. I highly recommend Dr. Frederick to anyone needing orthopedic surgery.

Where do I start? Not my first surgery with Dr. Frederick. For this one, I saw him on a Monday and was in surgery the next Morning (today) after initial insurance problems. Dr. Frederick is an amazing physician in every sense. His staff from Lynn in scheduling and getting my approval to his assistant Barbara are fantastic. I highly recommend Dr. Frederick.

May be a good doc, but is very inconsiderate. Took my elderly dad for a follow up appt. The appt was scheduled for 10:45. Finally saw the doc after 2:00 pm. He has his staff do the dirty work and tell you that he is behind. Started out one hour behind. . Ended up 2.5 hours behind. Sure felt like he thinks his time is more important. Do yourself a favor and find a doc that is considerate to his patients.

1st visit Dr Frederick showed me my injuries (Partial ACL tear, 2 lateral meniscus tears) on my MRI, sent me to physical therapy & explained what to expect. Follow-up 6 weeks - totally different experience! Waste of time! Waited 30minutes, Resident saw me 1st. Resident hadn't looked @ my Xrays /MRI & over extended my knee after I told him to stop extending it. Dr. Frederick came in & asked where I'd had my MRI "because it wasn't very clear". Told me he didn't see the tears. ?? Won't go back!

Dr. Frederick along with the rest of the staff at Rothman are exceptional. The most respectful people you'll ever meet. They are truly so professional, knowledgeable and experienced. I went there for a second opinion after tearing my ACL and knew instantly it was the right choice. Greatest place around and my surgery and recovery has been incredible all thanks to the Rothman. You won't find a better doctor anywhere.

I saw Dr Frederick the day after my knee injury. He was very warm and personal. I could tell he really cared about me and I wasn't just another number. Pre and post operatively he kept me informed, answered all my questions and concerns, as well as followed up with me. You can barely tell I had surger. I wouldn't be back to running if it weren't for Rothman Institute.
