Excellent Physician
Dr. Frech is very caring and understanding, a trait you don't find in many doctors now days. He's also very knowledgeable, thorough and speaks to his patients in common sense terms. Most doctors want to use large medical terms or try to impress you with their knowledge, whether it pertains to you or not. He has amazing bedside manners and really cares about his patients. More doctors need to learn from him.

Most Amazing Gastroenterologist ever
I have Crohn's disease and meet Dr. Frech while he was completing his residency at the local VA Hospital. When I got my own insurance I found him and have been going to him ever since, it's been about 18 years now. He is professional, kind, understanding and explains everything so I understand what is going on. Would (and have ) recommended him to everyone and anyone who needs a Gastroenterologist

Repeat Colonoscopy customer
Dr. Frech and his team send home materials to prepare the patient for the procedure. They are available if you have questions. As a patient I was treated in a respectful but friendly manner in office and at the place of my procedure appointment. I would recommend Dr. Frech to other patients requiring a colonoscopy. He and his team and quick and efficient, cautious and courteous, knowledgeable and forthright with information both before and after the procedure and what to expect throughout the process. About the only thing I could recommend is for the office to revamp the list of permissible clear liquids since there is more variety with the sparkling water industry and coconut water (without any coconut solids of course!) And possibly list a few more of the restricted dyes like purple. But that is very trivial and the care you get is excellent overall. My husband and I will be back in a few years for our next colonoscopies!

Dr. Frech is one of the best physicians I and my daughter have ever seen. He remembers us, our history, and diagnosed a difficult to diagnose condition for my then teen daughter. We have the utmost confidence in, and respect for Dr. Frech.

Honest and straightforward
Dr. Frech talked me through everything before my procedure and took the time to review results afterwards. I was the last appointment of the day so he could have easily called it a day and phoned me the next day, but taking the time to explain what was found and my next steps at my bedside was really appreciated. Highly recommend.
