I went in for an issue with my knee. The front desk was very friendly. I only waited about 5 minutes before I called back. The doctor examined my knee and gave me tips to get the swelling down.

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 veryvaluable 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. Healso 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.

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 tomy 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 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 workoutroutine (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.

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 seemsto 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.
