I’ve seen Dr fralich since she was in Family Medicine. As an athlete, I was overjoyed to continue with her in sports med. She is personable, funny and aggressively persues getting to the diagnosis of an injury. I always feel heard in her care and never feel rushed.

I have known Dr Fralich for many years. I was in a great deal of pain at my most recent visit, and she was very patient and understanding. I am so glad my children will have the opportunity to see her, if the need ever arises, now that they’ve entered into sports.

Lexis Jeanie

I have known Dr.Fralich since she was a Family Medicine resident. To see her go on and become the amazing sports medicine physician that she is has been wonderful. She is one of the most caring, bright, driven and intelligent individuals I have had the pleasure of knowing in medicine. When I was having trouble with my leg while training for my upcoming marathon, I knew she was the doctor who could help me. She made the correct diagnosis quickly and had me back to 100% far sooner than I had thought possible. I am happy to report I have been running with no pain and just completed my 10th marathon. I highly recommend Dr.Fralich, she’s a true gem in the Inland NW medical community.

Dr. Fralich is very professional, has a lot of compassion for her patients, and helped me get to physical therapy where I am doing very well. As a cardiac nurse of 30 years, I have worked with many physicians and Dr. Fralich is top of the line.
