  • Ratings & Comments from Patients

    To ensure our ratings come only from verified patients, we work with Press Ganey, a third-party organization. Press Ganey sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVHN’s behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor’s or advanced practice clinician’s communication skills. Read more about our survey.

    Dr. Frudenberger is "second to none" the best heart physician. We feel very fortunate to have such a wonderful doctor who provides top care. Thank you
    Dr. Ronald Fruedenberger has been my heart specialist for seven years. During this time, he has shown me nothing but genuine concern for my health and well-being from my first phone call from him, hospital stay, and subsequent visits until now. He is extremely knowledgeable as a doctor/specialist. He listens to all of my questions and concerns including concerns about another doctor and he assisted me in finding a new PCP that I can trust. His attitude as a physician and person is the reason I ALWAYS recommend Lehigh Valley Health Network on South Cedar Crest to family, friends and strangers if they want to receive the best care for all of their healthcare needs. Many have taken my advice and from their conversations with me, they are happy they took my suggestions for an excellent heath care provider(s). I would like to thank all of the staff at LVHN Cedar Crest for their professional service in the care they provide for their patients.
    I absolutely feel like everyone at LVH that I need to come in contact with are always professional and caring. Appointments have gone like clockwork. I feel like I'm really cared about.
    He is a very good doctor.

He is warm, sincere and has our best interests in heart. His intelligence and care comforts us. We feel blessed to have this man on our side
    Great doctor.
    Dr. Freudenberger always takes the time to explain my condition and never makes me feel bad if I don't reach my goals. he encourages me to keep trying and celebrates every little positive step forward I make. I wish all doctors were like him!

  • Philosophy of Care

    I care for my patients’ physical and emotional needs. As a cardiologist, I sometimes care for patients for 10 to 15 years. I get close to them, and they become part of my family. When I meet new patients, I like to learn what kind of person they are. I like to laugh with them and encourage them to share personal stories. It helps them relax and breaks down barriers that can prevent me from providing the best care.

  • Why I Entered Medicine

    My grandfather, Rudolph, was a physician. In 1938, he fled Nazi Germany and came to New York City, where he cared for the immigrant population in Washington Heights. He passed away before I was born, but his legend lived on. He is my inspiration.

  • Personal Interests

    In my free time, I enjoy being at home with my family. We like to watch movies together. I also enjoy reading because I’m on a constant quest for knowledge. I am currently attending graduate school where I’m learning about management and financial responsibility. We’re constantly investing in technology at LVHN, and I want to have the education to help our health network make the wisest investments.
