Patient Comments (5)
Pasadena, CA |
I made an emergency appointment for my daughter who suffers from daily migraines. We were asked to arrive 15 minutes early for what I assumed to turn in paperwork. We arrived at the appointed time with paperwork completed but doctor refused to see us or schedule another appointment even though there was no one waiting in the lobby and we were a referral from a specialist. RUDE!
Burbank, CA |
Was sent to discuss VNS implant after 1 year of seizures not responding to medications. Told me I was going to need a week long hospitalization to go off all my meds (too dangerous to do at home) and likely brain surgery. At my follow up appt he had completely changed his tune. Told me my only problem was stress. Said it was fine to go off my meds at home, alone. Then, bafflingly, suggested LA may be a stressful place for me to live and I may want to move. Completely unethical.

It is difficult to write as Dr. Frechette hung up the phone on me while on speaker phone with him and his office manager Natalie. Very disappointed by the office unwillingness to adjust appointment time for elderly patient. Would not recommend this physician as having a good bedside manner or flexibility.
Covina, CA |
Dr. Frechette is an amazing doctor. He will go over and beyond to make sure his patients receive the care and treatment they deserve and need. Chronically ill patients have enough limitations as it is. I appreciate that he does his best to assist in improving their quality of life.

Had to make an appointment to fill a prescription that he made a mistake on. He then asked me to find another physician if I do not want to come in. I then had to wait another few weeks to schedule and I again did not get the prescription filled. It has been several months, another week and two more phone calls- still waiting for my prescription During my exam, did not recheck an abnormal physical finding from the previous visit until I mentioned it to him, and looked annoyed when I did.
