    I've been a patient of Dr. Fredericks more than 10 years. She is the most caring physician I've ever seen. I have the utmost trust in her judgment. I highly recommend her to any and everyone who is in need of neurological medical help. Her staff is great, always ready to help.
    Dr. Fredericks is one of the best Doctor's I have met. She cares about her patients and spends an adequate amount of time with you answering your questions. You may have to wait a little longer than normal but it's because she is spending the time needed with other patients or has had to go to the hospital for an emergency. It is well worth the wait.

    Great Doctor that gives her all to help patients. Makes patients feel that they are the most important person she will see that day.

    Dr Ruth Fredericks is the closest thing to have a "Dr House" in expertise. She is so caring and concerned for her patients. She listens and explains things in a way the "normal" person can understand. She goes far beyond what any doctor I have every used does. Her staff and nurse practitioner is absolute wonderful. I will continue telling people about how great she is.

    I've been with Dr. Fredericks for a very long time. She is awesome. Always comes in with a warm smile even with a waiting room full. She has always provided me with the best and most proficient care. I cannot make it with out her She is the best!

    She is probably one of the finest physicians I've ever been too. I have been with her for about 20 years. There are very few doctors that are this caring.

    Dr. Fredericks diagnosed my husband, when we could fine no other doctor who could. She is dedicated to her patients and spends time explaining issues and answering our questions. We appreciate her thoroughness and kind bedside manner.

    I would not recommend Dr. Frederick to anyone. She is way to busy she sees her patients 7 days a week. You can never get in contact with her especially if you're having serious health issues. She is very slow wait time is ridiculous.

    Dr. Fredericks exhibits true compassion coupled with an awesome amount of knowledge and expertise in her field. I feel so very fortunate to have found her

    You will NEVER find a more dedicated, empathetic doctor. Her knowledge and standing in the neuro arena is outstanding. Briefly, she was my doctor last year. I changed insurance, which was not accepted by her or the hospital. Dr Ruth said that did not matter, she was seeing this thru to the end. In other words, she actually cared for me as a patient. Her patience with me was over the top. I just wish she could be my everyday doctor. Thanks dr ruth. Tommy

    She is the most kind compassionate Dr I have ever been to ! Been seeing her 20 + yrs seizures under control !

    My husband has a TBI and suffers from Seizures due to it. Dr. Fredericks was our knight in shinning Armour when she and Allen Allen walked in our lives that had been in turmoil from the injury became more clear to us. She always explains everything in detail they both answer any questions that I have concerning my husband and are always so encouraging to us when we are in her office. We love Dr. Fredericks and her team. Rescheduling happens but that is life. She is human just like us. :)

    Dr Fredericks helped me get approved by my private work long term disability and SS disability. She offered without being asked to help. She filled out mountains of paperwork during the trying process. She wrote a letter the SS without being asked. She always listens and shows genuine concern for my problems. She is highly competent. I would readily recommend her.

    Best Dr in my book. Sure I've had to wait a long time in waiting room several times, but if I were the one needing her due to emergency , I would want her there with me. She saved my life by finding my problem when others couldn't and it is something not even in her field. If you are lucky enough to get her, DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT LOSE HER!
    Not one of the best neurologists in my opinion! She has rescheduled 85% of my initial appointments, ones in which I had already taken off work for. Secondly she doesn't go in detail with you on your MRI. I have had neurologists sit down and show images doing my appointments. Sadly they are no longer practicing in Jackson. I spend triple the time waiting then I do in my appointment. Lastly her nurses are rude and doesn't seem to care about the patients health. Plus she charges to do PA's!
