Patient Experience with Dr. Fricke
My son has congenital torticollis that failed to respond to physical therapy, occupational therapy, stretching, and and taping. I approached Dr. Fricke after trying all of those treatments. As a pediatrician, I carefully reviewed the options of different acupuncturists. Dr. Fricke was my choice despite that he is not in our insurance plan. Within the first month, I noticed much improvement. Dr. Fricke also has wonderful bedside manner. Our young son is not afraid of him. We are so appreciative to have Dr. Fricke for our son.
It has been a great experience working with Dr. Fricke. He has been helpful in guiding us and providing various therapies to help my child overcome his torticollis. We plan to continue to use Dr. Fricke's services for other ailments that my child has. Thank you so much Dr. Fricke.
I was struggling with an athletic injury from lifting for months and Walter has totally turned me around. With a 3 stage progression plan, I no longer have any pain in my back and am back to lifting. I plan to continue coming to help prevent future injury and help my body recover.
I was experiencing neck and upper back pain for a few months. After meeting with my Sports Medicine Dr and a Pain Management Dr regarding a cortisone shot, I decided to try acupuncture. The results regarding my acupuncture experience have been outstanding. The pain has been reduced drastically and I am able to perform many of the tasks that I had been avoiding. Excellent service, Excellent results. I highly recommend giving acupuncture a try before resorting to steroid injections or surgery.
I was in pain for 24years . But now I feel great, thanks to Dr Frickle. It's a lot better now
He's great! I was skeptical at first and afraid of attempting new things especially involving needles, but he has made this experience not only positive but enlightening. I came in and after a week I feel the difference. You will not go wrong, if you want a great acupuncturist and pain management physician, he's the one for you. He definitely won me over. Thanks again Dr Walter
Really cool guy, knows his stuff. Great conversationalists, very funny. Great doctor, when I came in the first time I was completely terrified. But after meeting him, my nerves weren't as frazzled. He explained the process in a way that put my mind at ease. My back pain has always been a big issue for me, but after one visit I've felt better than I ever had in years.
Dr. Fricke is great. He has really helped me a lot with my lower back and leg pain.
Excellent care. Dr. Fricke takes time to listen and formulate an appropriate plan of care and treatment. He is highly skilled at his profession.
Dr Fricke has helped me with my low back pain after surgery. He continues to treat me and has decreased my pain levels. He is very knowledgeable and caring about my condition. I am so happy to have found him. He is great and would highly recommend him. 5 stars
