Dr. Paul Fredette, a partner with Parkway General Surgeons, received his medical degree from Loma Linda University and began practicing with us in 2009. He achieved certification in Advanced Trauma Life Support and his practice was developed under the "motto" that all patients are treated the same as a family member would be treated, giving only his very best to each and every patient.  

Dr. Fredette provides minimally invasive and traditional surgery to treat a range of medical conditions, including hernias and disorders of the gallbladder, appendix, intestines, stomach, and colon.

Dr. Fredette enjoys serving others in the local community as an elder for his church as well as in the global community, traveling to Honduras each year to volunteer to provide surgical care to those in need. He is happily married to a local family physician in the area and does his best to keep up with his four active children.  When he does find a moment, Dr. Fredette can be found biking, hiking and enjoying many of the outdoor adventures the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
