Former patient

I have moved back home to South Carolina and boy do I miss Dr. Ruth! I have looked and looked for a neurologist that comes close to her and have been sadly disappointed. Ready to call her for a 8 hr drive to Mississippi to see her. Yep long wait times but worth the wait trust me. Here short wait times but the concern and care is just not the same so far. Mississippi is very lucky to have her, and boy do I miss the care I was getting.

Waited 3 hours for a two minute visit.

Waited in her waiting room for 3 full hours. My appointment was a 1:30pm, I arrived at 1:15. At 4:25 I was escorted to a room where Dr Fredericks walked in, said she would change my medicine and walked out. And then charged my insurance the highest level possible. She did not actually lay a finger on me, touch, or examine me in any way! Wont go back.
