- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I came to this doctor for treatment of stomach upset and ADHD. She told me she doesn't treat adhd and gave me a referral to a counselor. I told her I'd been struggling with reflux and stomach pain. She gave me a referral to a gastrointestinal doctor. SO, what exactly does she treat? Then she had the nerve to call me and tell me I had to make another appointment with her to follow up on my problems. HECK NO! She didn't treat my problems.
I was one of Dr. Frederick's first patients. From the initial visit, I knew she was going to be the best doctor I had ever seen. She was also my mother's doctor, and was so devoted to caring for her. My husband and I moved away ten years ago, but I still slip and say, "We need to get an appointment with Dr. Frederick," and he tells me it would be a long drive to see her!
Dr. Frederick cares about her patients and makes sure they are well informed about their diagnosis and treatment.
