in Coopersburg, PA |
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.
