Dr Karl Freydl is the best pain management specialist I have experienced in my 72 years of living in many different states. He was kind, compassionate, listened, worked with me, gave me options, and all the other good stuff. I was told by one of the best? in MI that I should have "knee replacement surgery" ten years ago. Well, I am still on that same knee, Dr. Freydl took care of with his special (3 injections, series, with light anesthesia, can't remember the name). All I use after ten years is Icy Hot with Lidocaine rub and Aleve. The only time it get very painful is when it is Cold and Wet!! Thanks you Dr. Freydl...You are a TOP DOC!

Bobbie Flynn-Ward – Mar 02, 2020
I saw Dr Freydl back when he had his practice in Northville. He took great care of me, and got my pain down to where I could do physical therapy. That was 4 years ago. To this day I still do core exercises to keep my spine in good condition and haven't had to go back! I highly recommend Dr. Frydl to anyone suffering from back pain. He's a good Dr. and an all around good guy!

Dr. Freydl always took plenty of time to listen to my concerns and then share his expertise and recommendations. When I had spinal injections, he offered medication to ease anxiety and address any potential pain. As a result, the procedures were virtually stress-free. He is great doctor.

I wouldn’t recommend anybody other than Dr Freydl to anybody. He has spent so much time with me trying to help my lower back pain without a major procedure. I appreciate everything he has done and can honestly say he is in this to help people. I have seen numerous Drs and can say I think he is one of the best If not the best. I honesly think he is as concerned and as upset as I was that it has been such a pain getting it under control and I have learned a lot from him. He is truelyba great perso

Ray Monette in Northville, Mi. – Feb 21, 2018
In the past 8 years I have seen more doctors (including those at the Cleveland Clinic) than I care to admit due to unbearable nerve pain caused by spinal surgery. I can count only 3 that have made a huge difference in my life both physically and mentally and one of those doctors is Dr Freydl. He is brilliant, personable and extremely compassionate. He is a very special doctor.
