Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.


Dr. Fredrick has held academic appointments at Dartmouth Medical School, University of California San Francisco, Stanford University and Icahn School of Medicine/New York Eye and Ear Infirmary before coming to OHSU in February 2021 to serve as  Director of the Elk’s Children Eye Clinic at the Casey Eye Institute. He has a particular interest in the treatment of pediatric cataracts, the prevention of myopia and the development of new techniques for strabismus surgery.

Dr. Fredrick is a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American College of Surgeons and American Academy of Pediatrics and is an Honor Award recipient from the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.
