in Scottsdale, AZ |
Explained everything to me and family in such a clear, caring way, while in an ER setting was so helpful. Listened to our questions, was not in a rush and showed genuine interest in helping. Uncommon for any level of medical care these days let alone someone of his specialty.
Glendale, AZ |
Ok Dr. Frey, no medication call in again. No phone message stating that I need to come in and you can't refill my prescription. I am not a mind reader. You are the scientist. I am done with your grumpy staff and you. I hear your colleagues are better at patient care--Sorry, it is time for me to move on and NEVER recommend you. When I asked you to explain my stroke, your response, I wouldn't understand. I have 3 advanced degrees--Talk to me like a five year old. I don't care.
in Flagstaff, AZ |
Dr Frey was very pleasant, but easily distracted. Very difficult to get an appointment. I uploaded my images into Barrow system, but no one even tried to bring them up during the appointment, and no one could load the images from the CD that I brought from my hospital. Dr Frey also told my neurologist Doctor that he would call 6pm Dr Frey never called and has to contact the neurologist.
