Wish I could leave less than one star. Started off nice enough, but her follow up, bedside manner and professionalism - or lack thereof - ring out very loudly!

World class care. Dr. Frisch and her staff are amazing who actually cares for me. I have been to both offices in Wellington and Boynton. I sent my sister to the practice and she sees one of Dr. Frisch's associates and loves them as well.

So far, after trying numerous endocrinologists, I have found Dr. Frisch who I find is the most competent of them all. She has diagnosed my problems with my diabetes and has been treating it more successfully than all other doctors I have seen in the past. She has a very professional bedside manner and does not hesitate to answer all of my questions and explains herself in a comfortable way. Even though I rarely recommend a Dr. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Frisch to anyone.

Dr. Frisch is one amazing person and Endocrinologist. She always puts her patients first and listens to you and how you actually feel. She is by far the best physician I have ever seen. I live part time in South FL, and part time in Santa Barbara CA. I was talking with someone who is in the movie business and lives in Southern California and she asked me if heard of Dr. Anna Frisch in Florida? I was so proud to say she is my doctor! No matter where you live go see Dr. Frisch!

I have been a patient with Dr. Frisch for about 2 years. Whenever I see her, I feel like she is really listening and paying attention. She notices things that most doctors don't. She is compassionate and passionate about helping her patients. I felt like my Hashimoto's was destroying my body from the inside out...until I met her for the first time. She changed everything for me and now, I am a functioning person again.

She is awful! Blames hormone disorders on depression. Low TSH and low T4 points to a pituitary disorder, and she never did a single test. Said I was hyperthyroid, by looking only at the TSH. Despite my symptoms not correlating. Stupid doctor. Thank god I know a bit about thyroid problems. Otherwise, I would have gone on suffering. She needs to go back to school. She is a disgrace to the endocrine medical community.

Great doctor, very busy, but she does answer all your questions. I feel great thanks to her. I drive over an hour to see her. Would highly recommend.

Best endocrinologist and practice. I've been seeing Dr. Frisch for a couple years after reading about her. She's an extremely sought after thyroid expert; sees patients from other states and overseas. She treats many celebrities and athletes. For being the best Dr. Frisch has no ego, takes her time and listens to how i feel. Her practice has a few associates, i saw Dr. Beckman when Dr. Frisch was out for an emergency. I'll vouch that Dr Frisch is the best and hires the best. Love you Dr Frisch

I have seen MANY endocrinologists over the 32 years since I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Dr. Frisch is one of the very best I've ever seen. After asking multiple endos over the last 5 years to take my low thyroid symptoms seriously, she looked beyond my normal lab work, saw a trend in the wrong direction and prescribed medication to treat it. She's extremely knowledgeable about Type 1 diabetes and insulin pumps! Thanking God for directing me to her...she's definitely a godsend!

Dr Frisch is by far the best thyroid expert and endocrinologist! I traveled across the country for her. As a professional athlete, I've seen many doctors through the years; she saved my career. She is extremely busy and is one of the most sought-after and respected endocrinologist. Dr Frisch gives her heart to her patients, and has always given me the latitude to work with her in controlling my disease and medications.Dr. Frisch is fast, handles multiple issue quickly, and cuts out the fluff.
in Wellington, FL |
I have been going to Dr. Frisch for several years and find she is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to explain the findings of tests that she ordered. I have been to other endocrinologists in the area and have more confidence in her than any other in that field. She does not rush you out of the office but listens, explains and cares.
in Lantana, FL |
Nice doctor, but only takes 5 seconds of time for a patient and talks too rapidly to understand! Because she's trying to kick you out to go to the next patient. Not what you want.
in Delray Beach, FL |
I began seeing Dr. Frisch in October '15.. She did an ultrasound and ran blood work. Told me that I had an enlarged thyroid and a nodule.She put me on synthroid. Called to tell her that it wasn't helping. Found out that the dr. does not talk to patients over the phone and calls are not returned in less than 3 days. 3 visits and 3 med changes later, its March '16. I am no better and I just got a letter saying she dismissed me as a patient with absolutely no reason and no explanation. Horrible.
