Dr Frey saved my life. She performed a laparoscopic hysterectomy. Then she managed my 15 chemotherapy treatments. It’s a year since the end of treatment and I am well. Throughout my treatment, Dr. Frey was always availabile to me and my family. She is caring as well as brilliant and knowledgeable in her field. I feel lucky to have been directed to Dr. Frey in October, 2017.

Her experience as a surgeon is exemplary. However, I found her dismissive and her manners as a compassionate doctor lacking after the surgery was over. Her physician assistants handle basic questions with a lack of knowledge and are multitasking as they speak with you, so I found myself repeating concerns in between their pauses. Medical training should be focused on their patients feelings, not just their medical issues which is lacking with most of these doctors!

I saw Dr Frey because of an abnormal Pap smear. She was very friendly upon meeting her. She listened closely to everything i had to say, and was very informative regarding my options moving forward. I truly would recommend her to anyone who is concerned about any Gyn issues. She didn’t rush me through the visit, and was very supportive regarding my past. She took the time to draw an outline of my medical issue so I would understand exactly what was going on. I would recommend Dr Frey 100%

I can not say enough good things about Dr. Frey. When you are her patient you will receive the absolute best care possible. It’s hard to find a doctor that will provide outstanding care with a good bedside manner....Dr. Frey provides both. She is so knowledgeable and compassionate. Dr. Frey listens and takes the time to add answer all your questions. More importantly she wants to make sure you understand your care and that you leave her office educated.

Wonderful physician, compassionate & gives the patient a thorough explanation of treatment options. I would highly recommend her . Phone system in office needs to be addressed as there appears to be a system glitch when dialing Dr. Frey’s office number
