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 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.

A very uncaring doctor who is over booked with patients. My few appointment lasted less than 5 minutes. She may be a good doctor.....but if you cant see her what good is she. YES I am on to another doctor who is not overbooked. She is not the only neurologist in Jackson, MS!!!

Dr. Fredericks is THE BEST neurologist!! She spends SO much time with me at my appts~ always caring, talks to me not at me~ fabulous bedside manner. She was with me constantly when I had brain surgery last year. I honestly do not know what I would do without her! LOVE HER!

Dr. Fredericks is great and the office staff is very friendly and professional. The only complaint I have - if it's a complaint - is the length of time you have to wait when you get there. My normal wait is 2+ hours depending on the time of my appointment. I know Dr. Fredericks has a lot of really sick patients to care for, so I go prepared to wait.

have been a patient with spinal problems for 20+ years. I started having neck pain and my orthopedic specialist knew my problem was neurological and referred me to Dr. Fredericks. I have been seeing her over a year and the wait time to initially see her was a few months and I complained to my orthopedic specialist he said, "Wait I promise you it will be worth the wait, there is not a better neuro that I would refer you to." I trust his medical opinion especially since I have been seeing him 20+ years. Dr. Fredericks IS WORTH THE WAIT! She is just wonderful! I had the worst neck and head pain you could imagine. She IS very direct with me. I have Dystonia and stress causes me pain. When my pain is CHRONIC and I am in tears, she will say, "What you are doing differently?" She listens. She is not a doctor who will give you tons of narcotic type pain medication and the problem is still there. She medicates accordingly and that let's me know that she cares about my well-being. I have heard people say they take medication that makes them drowsy and can hardly work. She does not medicate like that. She takes your lifestyle in mind. I want to be pain free while working a 8-5 job and she takes care of me, so that I can work and have an active lifestyle. If my Dystonia gets more active she changes the medication. She knows what will work! She has an excellent rapport with pharmaceutical reps and will give you samples before spending money on something that does not work. She is a very busy doctor, so do not get aggravated with the wait time. I promise she is WORTH THE WAIT.
