Dr Frey was wonderful! His staff and his billing department were very helpful since I have become a patient in Jan 2019. He listens and doesn't just "push drugs". I saw two negative reviews on here and my thought is that they were looking for medications and since Dr Frey cares, he tries to limit the necessity for drugs. I can actually walk without pain again. I cannot say enough great stuff about him. Then, my insurance Blue Shield raised my deductible. The billing staff was great with setting up payments. I have had no issues and never feel rushed.

I needed a new pain management doctor and a girl I work with mentioned she went to grade school with Dr Frey. I made an appointment and hoped for the best. I have had chronic pain for over 20 years and basically knew what medications I needed to get through the day. Dr Frey would have none of it. He insisted I ween off everything I had and to do it quickly. He wrote an Rx for the exact amount of medication he would allow and expected me to take less than half of my usual dose. Not for me.

This is a five star doctor who really cares about the lives of individuals. He doesn’t give up when solutions do not easily present themselves. I owe a lot to this man who has given me my life back. I would be in a wheelchair if it wasn’t for his care. Thank you Dr. Frey.

Dr. Frey is easy to talk to and very attentive. I think he is a wonderful pain doctor. I have had a couple of joint injections which helped relieve my pain immensely! His office is always upbeat even when they are really busy. I never have to wait very long which is a nice bonus!

Dr. Frey is amazing. He always listens, is responsive, explains everything, and makes me feel comfortable with the decision I am making. He is prompt, courteous, and professional. I would trust my life to him. He's the BEST! Nurse Jackie is also so wonderful. She is kind, professional, and cares about the patients.

I went to Dr. Frey for my chronic low back pain. He did a thorough examination and started with the least invasive procedure first, which for me was an epidural steroid injection. So far the results have been great. I only wish I had seen him sooner. He has a tremendous bedside manner, seems to really understand all the therapy options and how to pursue treatment, and seems to have genuine interest in my improvement as a patient. I would recommend Dr Frey to anyone suffering from chronic pain.

Dr Frey is very arrogant and does not listen or care about his patients. He can be downright cruel sometimes and is so scared of the DEA that he makes everyone out to be a drug seeker. He is extremely unhelpful and unprofessional. I don't recommend him if you're suffering from chronic pain and need more than just ibuprofen and some exercise.i was surprised to see any good reviews at all for him. As for the staff, Kim is the only bad one who works at the front desk. She quite an angry woman.
