Wait times

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Fredrickson and Stephanie really understood my anxiety about the procedure and were gentle and communicative about it. Very good experience - less painful than expected.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Extremely impressed with Dr. F. and his resident, as well as the nurse assistant

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Dr Fredericson's resident at the time was very charismatic and friendly. Dr Fredericson himself can come across as unempathetic, and definitely brief - he's only there for 60s, maximum.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Respectful, thoughtful, clinically excellent.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Pleasant NICE dr.'s but I left with lots of unanswered questions.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I have already recommending this care provider to others

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

I wasn't an athlete but he still very much cared abt. my mobility and pain.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

He was very kind & patient because I was scared about electric shocks & friendly.
