Dr. Frexes is top notch. Very professional and knowledgeable. Her office team is great as well. When you call her office you are greeted in a finding manner. Her PA and nurses are great too. All of the staff at St. Thomas were very friendly and caring. I hope I don't have to go back but if I had the need I know who I am choosing.

Dr. Frexes is a very knowledgeable surgeon. There is no one who understands breast cancer and melanoma (as well as other surgeries) as well as she does. She is very big on the "team" aspect of a care team. She works closely with other doctors when you have a cancer and calls them during your appointment if necessary. She even called me while she was on vacation! There is no other surgeon that I would trust more than her.

Excellent care and staff. Dr. Frexes is first rate, but I hope I never have to use her again. But if Melanoma resurfaces she is who I will call.
