Patient Comments (8)
100% disappointed. I was referred by another physician to Doctor No Personality Frye for ongoing kidney stones/pain. She was completely uninterested in what I had to say and clearly only follows guidelines and not willing to engage me in conversation about anything outside that box. She has zero personality. She ordered one test and the office would not talk about results over the phone. Would only mail results with no pamphlets or explanation! If I needed pamphlets had to make appointment!!

If I could give this Dr -10 stars I would. Just moved to the area & came to her bcus I've had to manage a chronic, incurable bladder disease for 13 years. She waived her hand (waiving me off) & said "Any of my patients with this that don't improve I send up to Dr. (blank) up in Winston-Salem." Hello, that is 1.5 hours away. She basically told me there's no hope for my condition, she can't help me & come back if I think I have a UTI. I've never been treated so crappy. She's also RUDE. NEVER AGAIN

She didn't listen to me at all. Had one foot out the door the whole time, then took e off meds I've been on for years and prescribed others that I don't even know what for!

Acted as if my condition was not real. Matter of fact and cold. Not likely to return. Wish Asheville had better options
Dr. Frye is very knowledgeable and thorough. No unnecessary testing. Only female urologist in area!

Dr. Frye managed to find time for the basics, but not for much discussion nor many questions re: a possible life threatening situation. Her assistant was disagreeable, unprofessional & a trouble maker. I will not see them again.
in Fairview, NC |
Excellent bed -side manner. Very knowledgeable. Readily explains diagnosis & procedures. Spend enough time with patients. Submits prescriptions immediately. I would highly recommend Dr. Frye to other people. Excellent health care provider.

Dr Frye has no interest or concern in one's pain. Came in after 3 months of repeat UTIs and severe pain in abdomen and kidney area, when things came back negative she tried to send me on my way with no more than, drink more water, don't wear thongs. Had to prompt for further investigation. I don't have enough space to complete my story, but just know I will not be going back and would never recommend Dr Frye to anyone. Rather, I'd discourage people from seeing her. The staff was lovely though.
