  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I don't know what more you could want in a personal physician. She's warm, friendly, VERY knowledgeable and communicates a genuine concern for her patient's well-being. I have been under her care for about two years and, at a time when I am hearing a lot of complaints from other senior citizens about doctors who don't listen or take enough time with their patients, I feel Very fortunate to have her as my doctor.

Excellent physician

Dr. Frechette is an excellent physician when you are seeking someone with strong clinical skills as well as a professional with whom you can collaborate in your treatment. I appreciate the conversational style and the patient/physician partnership instead of just told what to do. I feel very lucky to have found her.

Lucky to have Dr. Frechette as primary physician

Dr. Frechette is warmly focused on her patient, simultaneously assessing concerns and diagnosing. Good balance of medicine and common sense, humor and levity. Exceptional memory of patient history. Referrals to other specialties made when appropriate. Hard to believe this is only her third year of practice. So, patients receive the latest informed up to date medical care. Waiting not a problem. I gave a five minute wait time since we, my mother and I are sometimes late. Our unscheduled timing is in tune.The only reason scheduling with Dr. Frechette might be difficult is that she is a highly preferred physician. When needing to see a general practitioner immediately, VMMC scheduling makes it easy to get someone else in GenMed same day or next. Dr. Frechette is one of the highly skilled general practitioners who has ?tolerated complex stressful periods at VMMC,as fine doctors were leaving the clinic. I'm glad she remained.
