Doctor Kristin Frerderick is wonderful. Kind and caring. Patient and thorough. She really cares about my children and she always makes sure I understand everything we discuss.

Dr. Frederick is by far one of my favorite two providers at the practice. she knows my daughter and treats her with kindness and genuine love and concern for her well-being. When we have to visit for a walk-in urgent care appointment, it is always a relief if Dr. Frederick is the one providing the care.
all is good. thank you.

Dr. Frederick is always so kind, nice, and compassionate. She remembers things that I tell her. I will always request her for every appointment for my daughter.
Dr Frederick is an exceptional, doctor and wonderful person. My oldest son has had a very complicated medical history and she has ALWAYS been our source of information, referrals and most importantly - patience and comfort during our visits. My only complaint would be that he has now aged out of pediatric medicine and is transitioning to an adult provider. I would stay with her forever if we could!
excellent care, very professional and kind.She took time to answer our questions. She was very kind, compassionate and professional!
We love Dr. Frederick. She is patient and understanding and manages the appointment time really well. I feel like I always get all of my questions answered and she asks questions about my kids development that I find useful that I might not have thought of. I really appreciate her candor and help. I view Frederick as an important person who partakes in my kids' developing lives and an important person life as a parent.
The doctor was kind and professional. She did seem a little bothered by our personal choice to homeschool although she was not disrespectful in any way.
Dr Frederick is amazing! she is so compassionate and so knowledgeable. Ahe never makes me feel rushed and always thoroughly listens to and addresses any health concerns with my children. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know!!!
I didnt love this provider for me or my child it is not the usual provider we see next time I will only see our usual provider. Dr. Fredrick seemed a little cold and abrupt, as a first time mom I just felt like she could of been more comforting.
excellent care we love this doctor
Love Dr. Frederick
Quick and easy information about the concern we had for our child.

Dr. Frederick is wonderful ! she listens and always has a plan of attack!
great appointment with both the doctor and assistant (who gives vaccines)
exceptional provider who went above and beyond to answer my questions and talk with my son.
Dr. Frederick was wonderful and through. She explained things in a way that a non-medical person could understand easily. Terri the lactation consultant was also very helpful with our breastfeeding questions and let us use her lactation room after our visit with the doctor to finish feeding.
Dr. Frederick is a wonderful doctor!
I went to the walk in service at my pcp. besides being sick with post nasal drip and a sore throat I had concerns when I am at college. I know that I should not be drinking in college but I do occasionally whether I have 1or 3 drinks i vomit all the next day have no other symptoms besides I don't have an appetite. she did not seem concerned or asked further questions just told me not to do it and moved on. you try to talk to your doctor with your concerns and to me she could of cared less.
dr Frederick always has an excellent bedside manner and I am glad she is my child's pediatrician
Every time we have seen Dr. Fredrick in the last six years has been a pleasure. She never rushes you and always makes you feel like she cares about even the smallest concerns. She is truly wonderful.
waited for almost an hour in waiting room with 2 very young children. not a great experience
we are always very pleased with the care & treatment we receive from the staff & doctors at this office
Always a great experience with Dr.Frederick, we have been seeing her for almost 11 years now for both of my children! Amazing Doctor and person.
Dr. Frederick treated my child so well, that when we left the office he asked if we could make her his normal doctor for well visits. She talked to him directly and was very patient with his answers.
Dr. Frederick is awesome! She is so caring and compassionate, exactly what a pediatrician should be!
waited to long
Dr. Frederick has always been helpful, thorough and compassionate.

Dr. Frederick is wonderful. We were the last ones there and I did not feel rushed at all. She was very patient with my talkative 4 year old as well.
Dr Frederick is the best doctor!
Only complaint is wait time.
Dr. Frederick wad so gentle and kind even when my child was having a meltdown during the entire exam.
Dr. Frederick is the best doctor I have EVER come across! She is the ONLY one that found my daughter's illness that could have taken her life at age three. Also, she is the ONLY doctor that found my nephew's eye condition. Had she not found his eye problem, he would be blind today. No other doctor saw these issues at hand! I will be forever grateful!!! She's they ONLY doctor I want for my children!
Dr. Frederick was very thorough with her exam and listened to all of the concerns I had. She took her time to explain everything to me so that I could understand, and was very caring towards my children.

All care has been very good.
I have been seeing this provider my whole life and will be sad that next year is my last year at this office.

Dr Frederick is always kind and respectful. I wouldn't take my children to anyone else.
Dr. Frederik always starts a well appointment by asking if I have any questions or concerns. This way I can be prepared for the appointment and know that she will answer questions right away.
Dr. Frederick was wonderful. She listened to my son and me, she asked questions, and she answered our questions completely. She took a lot of care and concern with my son.
My child has been seeing Dr. Frederick since he has been an infant. We have always had the most positive experiences with her. She is extremely caring and thorough. My son is turning 16 and still prefers to see her rather than any other provider.

Dr. Frederick has been my doctor since I was a baby and I am very comfortable talking to her about any of my medical concerns.

We have had very good time experiences every time we have come to the office. Dr. Fredrick is very nice and is a great doctor. She answers all the questions that we have had and she is great with my daughter. I am very happy we found her.

dr Frederick is amazing! such a fantastic Doctor and really makes sure she addresses any issues regarding my child and explains everything in easy to understand terms!
We had a great visit. very thorough
Dr. Frederick has been an amazing support system for me as my son was born with some medical issues that needed further attention and diagnosis. She has made sure that he is receiving the care and tests that is needed and recommended he see children's vascular anomalies clinic. she has made it clear that she is available for any questions or concerns that may pop up. We adore her.
LOVE Dr. Frederick....wait time in the waiting room takes its toll. every time we've gone the last 5+ visits have taken no less than 1.5hrs in the office.
Dr. Frederick conducted a very thorough examination of our child's physical and cognitive development. He very much enjoyed interacting with her.
Dr. Frederick is a fantastic doctor. She is kind and compassionate, absolutely wonderful!
I felt immediately comfortable when the doctor came into the office and introduced herself. And she was very patient with my daughters shyness.
She provides excellent care and thorough follow up, very compassionate.
We love Dr. Frederick. She always seems to really care about my child's health and well being.
Dr. Frederick listened to me and my daughter and gave answers to our questions and responses to what we said. Dr. Frederick addressed my daughter directly so that my daughter would have to answer her directly. These are all good things and things that will make me want to use Dr. Frederick again.
Dr. Frederick is the BEST and her empathy is one of a kind!
the wait time was too long that I came back home to feed my daughter. I had to go back again to make afternoon appointment.
Always takes time to answer any of my questions.
Dr. Frederick is always friendly, kind and knowledgeable when we have a visit with her. we appreciate her bedside manner and the helpful advice she gives.
we love Dr. Frederick, but the wait time was very long this visit. Our appointment was at 12:30 and it seems like everyone was having lunch. It took some time for the receptionist to come to the desk, and from there we wait 25 mins to be called back to the exam room. Once the doctor left the room, we waited another 20 mins for the nurse to come back in to give our child her immunizations. We didn't leave the doctors office until 1:50. Overall, we love the office and the doctors that we see (even at walk in hours), it was just an unexpected lengthily visit with an 18 month old, during lunch time.
Always excellent care
