Verified Patient Reviews
Great listener, really seems to care about his patients. Highly recommend!
Dr. Frerker and his nursing staff were excellent. Everybody was very nice, I was seen right away, and all me medical questions/needs were met. I highly recommend them.
Dr Frerker helped me with my anxiety issue and did a great job doing it! Thank you again so much!
His medical assistant is very professional and personable. The 'behind the front desk' person/staff is helpful and made my experience streamlined, efficient, polite and pleasant. Dr. Frerker addressed all my concerns and provided very valuable health advice customized to my situation and needs. He helped save me time and frustration in getting me my prescription without unnecessary steps. I highly recommend this doctor and clinic for a very professional, no nonsense and high quality medical care.
My original doctor retired and finding a doctor after seeing the same one for over a decade was nerve wracking. However, Dr. Frerker is pretty awesome. He gave his medical opinion and explained his diagnosis instead of just dictating it. He also provided me with other information on why it could't have been XYZ. Check in was easy, filled out everything online, and scheduled my appointment that way. I really appreciated how efficient everything was. Needless to say, he's officially our PCP.
I always receive good care here.
It was a good experience overall, from the moment I walked in and went through the paperwork to the pre checks everyone was very helpful and professional. Dr. Frerker was very personnel and we talked through my history and my current issue and he was very easy to talk to. Great experience, I plan to use Dr. Frerker as my primary Dr.
He is excellent !!!!!!
Was nice to speak with and answered all my questions thuroughly.
Very good experience, felt listened to, and he was very thorough.
I hate going to the doctor but Dr. Frerker was great!! I will DEFINITELY go back to him if the need ever arises!
Seriously the most condescending/crass doctor Ive ever had the discomfort of meeting.
Very knowledgeable and honest. Great information on why and how I should treat my illness.
I've seen Dr. Frerker twice and I don't really have any complaints. I think he genuinely cares about his patients and takes the time to cover the best options possible. I did not feel rushed either.
He's a kind person and a great doctor, thorough and caring with a great sense of humor. Really nice staff as well. I feel very lucky to have him as my doctor.
Wait time was around 5 minutes, Easy to talk with and down to earth. Nice guy. Fair rate for a self insured customer.
Dr. Frerker is always fun and understanding! He has high ethics and will always strive to do the best for every patient.
Doctor Frerker is great. Very knowledgeable, down to earth, and to the point. He encourages questions and answers all of them in a way that is easy to understand. His office runs very efficiently. He is my new choice for a Primary Care Physician.
WE FOUND THE PERFECT AND DR Frerker explained everything and answered all questions and took his time with us...normally the Dr's we have seen rush and we got the feeling he really didn't care..but not Dr. Frerker...he is the BEST DOC EVER!!!
Straight forward which I like. The doc and the nurse were great with my daughter. To be honest that is the most important thing to me.
Not only is this guy fun and on point, he's available on short notice.
I found Dr. Frerker's manner to be judgmental and rude. I went to see Dr. Frerker for treatment for an ear infection, but he spent most of the visit chastising me for my occasional use of marijuana and supposed insufficient workout routine (after telling him that I walk daily and also run, swim, climb, and strength train several times a week). When I told him that I use marijuana a few times a week, he looked at me and said "girl!" in a condescending way. He also told me to keep my "smoking dope" to the weekends, and that smoking marijuana is equivalent to drinking 3 martinis, which is completely untrue. I don't trust Dr. Frerker to give me unbiased medical advice, and I found him rather disrespectful and judgmental.
Any doctor can have the medical knowledge, but only the cream of the crop can make you feel comfortable enough to really share everything and get treated properly.
Dr. Frerker was very professional, knowledgeable, and caring. He thoroughly listened to symptoms I was experiencing, offered several options, and had great holistic advice. I will definitely be seeing him as my primary care doctor.
Very pleasant office staff, Dr. Freker is easy to talk to, Overall great experience!
He wasn't rude, but he wasn't very kind either. I would see him again but I'm moving far away so it wouldn't make sense for me to drive all the way to his office again.
A nice down to earth and no-nonsense guy. Just what I was looking for.
Doc was great, was a little late but did not rush the visit. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Frerker knew what he was talking about and helped me without any fluff or beating around the bush. I'm in my late twenties and at this point, I was looking for a doctor who gets to the point and seems to have my best interests in mind. Dr. Frerker also has a good sense of humor which is a plus. I look forward to what I hope is a good doctor-patient relationship with Dr. Frerker.
Very professional. Listened well, understood and asked lots of questions. This doctor definitely cares about his patients needs.
As usual Dr. Frerker and staff were amazing!
Very nice staff and a comfortable environment.
It was great! I was given some great advice and directions for my needs. Dr. Frerker is very straight forward and that was refreshing.
Dr was 45 minutes late at 10am. Kind of rude and crass. Would not return to him.
Very professional, kind and listened to my needs.
Dr. Ferker and his office staff are all very friendly and helpful. Dr. Ferker was attentive to my questions and, despite my lack of yearly visits up until this point, he was not judge mental and offered some very useful pieces of advice (as good doctors should!). The ladies up front were very nice and got me through the paperwork and processes quickly and efficiently. I will definitely be back!
Very thorough excellent staff and beside manner really felt comfortable I would highly recommend this doctor.
Very nice man, my 8yr old was nervous about the exam and shots, but he was kind and made her laugh. We will be back!
Dr. Frerker is incredible, he doesn't tolerate bs, and gets right to the root of the problem. I haven't seen a doctor in years but I'll go back to him.
He's very informative and straight to the point which I like!
At first, and only based on one visit, i didnt really like Dr. Frerker. Maybe it was the fact that he was too real, and didnt beat around the bush. But after attempting to visit another doctor closer in distance to my work, i am definitely going to make the visit back to Dr. Frerker. Test results consultations were much more thorough and dramatically more informative which is what i feel i am paying for. I would highly recommend Dr. Frerker if you are looking for an honest doctor that wont make you feel like just another quick patient to make a buck on.
I have been searching for a PCP for years. I never got a level of comfort with any of them until today with Dr. Frerker. He took extra time to discuss my issues, and I got the feeling that he actually cared. Took a card and already gave to my mom as she recently moved and needs a doc on this side of town :)
Staff wasn't this nicest but dr. Ferker was AMAZING. So glad I found him and will continue to always go to him
Dr. Lawrence Frerker was extremely upfront and professional in recommending the best method of treatment. I will definitely be back, as he performed the necessary procedure the same day, which greatly reduced my stress and eliminated the need to schedule another appointment.
Dr Ferker was very personable and welcoming. He did not waste time glossing over anything. He was straight to point but you didn't feel rushed to leave either.
Dr. Frerker is a wonderful doctor and excellent clinician! He's bbeen my family doctor for years and wouldn't trade him for the world! His office staff is amazing! Especially Pat!
If you're taking a stimulant, Dr. Frerker will not full your script without an ADHD test, regardless of previous Psychiatrist, Neurologist, and PCP diagnoses/history. Nor is he capable of administering an ADHD test.
Dr. Frerker is great. Never condescending, and he always takes time to make sure his patients are at ease before leaving the office
Excellent help! Very attentive, offered a variety of options. Plus I was able to get an apt THAT DAY! Thanks, Dr. Frerker!
Wait was very little and the doctor was very easy to talk to and able to address all my concerns, which there were many cause I don't go to the doctor often.
I don't feel Dr Frerker is very compassionate and a little intimidating. I have never felt this way. I don't expect hand holding through my appointments but a little compassion goes a long way. He appears to know what he is doing though.
Really easy to talk to. Really nice. Fun dude!
The doctor was very informative and did his best to answer all of my questions.
AMAZING STAFF!!! No need to say more! ....????????
Showed up early for appointment and had already filled out forms online. Had to wait 30 Minutes to see doc! Doc shows up late and doesn't even apologize. He was Cold and unfriendly as if I was bothering him. Office is dingy and furniture in the waiting room looks like they got it from a dumpster. No wifi no t.v! Torture waiting at this office. Wouldn't recommend and will never go back.
The entire staff was Over-the-top courteous and professional. Very comfortable setting as well.
He has helped get me the medications I need when I'm sick but other than that eh he's kind of rude and isn't approachable.
Straight forward. I had a sore throat, they did a culture, found out I has strep, then gave me a Rx.
Dr Frerker and his staff are amazing. They saw my daughter immediately and completed a procedure that needed to be done at 5 pm on a Friday, no less. He answered our concerns and is extremely knowledgeable. He will be our family practitioner from now on.
Doctor Frerker was rude and insulting to me within minutes of meeting me. Nurse asked me personal questions in the waiting room in front of other patients. Office never contacted me discussing results of tests or of my visit. I never felt as if this office cared about me.
I have NEVER been seen so quickly! Staff was wonderful and Dr. Frerker was such a personable and wonderful doctor! I am so glad I found him. I really felt a home there!
Dr frerker is wonderful. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. He takes his time with his patients and makes sure all of their concerns/thoughts are addressed. He is easily the best doctor I have seen in over a decade. If you are looking for a doctor who is knowledgable and caring; this is the the one you want.
I was less than impressed. I left my medical card at home and his office refused to talk to my insurance for proof of eligibility over the phone. My insurance put me on hold while they attempted to fax over a letter of eligibility, but by the time it came through his office staff had charged me out-of-pocket for my visit. They then didn't call me with my lab results -- instead I finally had to call them after a week had gone by. Not the service I expect for how much I had to shell out out-of-pocket.
Good staff, very nice and personable. Doctor was great and the wait wasn't very long.
Dr. Freker was wonderful. He took time to listen to my concerns and spoke with me as a person, not just a patient. I will definitely be returning to him.
Timely service, excellent care, and no hassles. Doctor Frerker showed genuine concern and helps me monitor my condition.
The doctor and staff were very friendly and helped my husband and I right away. So nice to go to a nice small personal office!
Nice small personal office with a very friendly staff and Dr.
Excellent Doctor. Professional and down to earth. Highly recommended.
Dr. Frerker was great!! I don't usually see doctors, but he was great. Nice guy and very informative. Will definitely see him again.
He is a good doctor. He is old school and very experienced. I feel like I can ask him anything and he will do his best to answer. Good guy, man's man and no B.S. condescending doctor attitude.
Excellent care. Dr spent plenty of time with me to access my issue and I felt very cared for.
Highly satisfied he was very nice and very professionel I am going to have him as my doctor.
Very nice doctor that spent a lot of time listening to me talk about what was going on and did something about it that day. The nurse was also very kind and very skilled with a needle.
it was fantastic he seems to be a wonderful man with a great sense of humor and huge compassion additionally he actually knows medicine!!!
Good doctor, knowledgeable, but very old fashioned, from the office to the visit. He's much older and the practice represents that. Only complaint, would be that I didn't see the doctor until after an hour past my appt time. The practice is more welcoming to an older generation, everything is out dated and old looking. If that doesn't bother you though, he is very nice and knows his stuff.
The doc takes time to talk with you and listen. The staff is great as well.
Dr. Frerker is the best. He spends plenty of time going over my concerns and offers great advice. From workouts, to helpful websites, to specialists, he makes very useful recommendations. I've never had a doctor that makes me feel as heard and cared for as Dr. Frerker does.
Very pleased. He knew exactly what was wrong and how to fix it.
Great service. Doctor Frerker is a great.
What a great guy! Made me feel comfortable with jokes, but took everything I had to say seriously. Glad I found this doctor!
Very professional but friendly. Asked great questions and explained his suggestions. Seemed trust-worthy and interested in me as a patient. Spent time talking which added comfort to the visit. I will maek him my PCP.
Great guy, I felt very comfortable meeting him for the first time! He was professional and personable, treated me like a person and not a patient. I'll be seeing him again
The actual visit itself was fine. It was the follow up care or lack of it, that made me decide I would never go back to his office.
He was very nice and thorough. im definitely coming back.
Very friendly and professional
Very courteous, friendly, and informative. I do however feel they could use more up to date equipment.
Great doctor / excellent bedside manner / very conservative
The Dr. and the office staff were great:)
